I got this as a Christmas present for my cat-obsessed younger sister, and I can't wait to hear her thoughts on the book. It's a good book, very nice for a coffee table book that a guest would actually read while they're sitting waiting for you. It could also be a great discussion piece. :)

A completly comical recount of cats and their owners! The cats win in every situation. Well worth the read!

Lots of witty tidbits to be found, some content available from their website, some exclusive content, all worth it.

This book is full of outright hilarity.  It's Super-Punch-A-Dolphin funny and you should buy it. Or buy two.  You'll be twice as funny.

Hilarious! I bought this book as a Christmas present for a relative and before I wrapped it, I took a peek. Very funny! I now have to buy a copy for myself and all the other cat lovers in my life!

I was lured in by the title and thought it might be a fun book to share with my daughter. Lesson learned. Next time I will be sure to read the reviews. Interesting as the title may be to a cat lover it was not at all what I had expected. The pages are filled with cartoons and hardly any reading at all. Among the few words that fill the pages are enough expletives that keep this from being a child friendly book..... and frankly as an adult I would have been more impressed if the obscene language had been left out.

This book is funny but has crude humor that is not suitable for young kids recommended for people 15+

If you don't follow The Oatmeal, you won't get it.  And you'll find it offensive and rate it one star. Do some research before you purchase a book... Matt is hilarious, but if you don't already understand his humor, you may not find his book as entertaining.

Hi, guys. I bought this book and well... no. I mean i like it, but it swears and has very unnapropriate pictures, words and its defenetly NOT for children, so if you are under 13, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! I do say it is funny, so I would give it 2 stars. Umm, yeah no. So stand clear of my messages for books, Hermy granger!

Ok you only get to preview a few pages & this book is horrible. It should have a rating of its contient. I'm not sure of how cats being gay & talking about sexual crap has to do with cats wanting to kill you. The book started funny then went to crap with "the Bob's". I want my $ back not worth $9.

I instantly took a liking to this because of my adoration for cats. :) A funny comic (and hilarious explanation) of your cat’s weird and sometimes peculiar behavior. BEWARE everyone. Haha.

My brother read this first and warned me of the PINK section. It was funny! I won't spoil it. But i do suggest reading it, buy it NOW! :)

Would have considered it moderately funny if there were not so many SWEAR words. I will be returning the book, as I would not share this with anyone else!

Bought the book for an 11 year old. Looked at it when I received it - ordered it on line - and returned it. Totally inappropriate for an 11 year old.
