Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"4 stars."
- LitPick

"perfectly captures the odd, sweet, and sometimes sassy minds of our feline companions."
Tails Magazine

"With poems like 'Who Is That On Your Lap,' 'Nudge' and 'Kneel Before Me,' this quirky book will surely induce laughter and whimsical from all who decide to delve into its poetry."
-Trend Hunter

"Poems by cats? Honestly? Yes."I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats' once opened, is as evil as an evil little book can get. It went from desk to desk to desk here at The Post, clawing anyone who's had or known a feline into its silly spell and sucking precious tens of minutes into its hairy vortex.

In four cat-egories - family, work, play, and existence - Francesco Marciuliano (writer of the comic strip "Sally Forth") has given voice to cats' 'every desire, their every conflict, their every epiphany.' Also why they'll put an entire paw in your wine glass when you have a date over."
- The Denver Post

"Francesco Marciuliano has collected poems by cats into a hilarious little book. From expressing their love for dead mice to pulling over Christmas trees, cats reveal their genius and neuroses"

    Cat lovers in particular will like this

    I actually bought this for my wife, but she read substantial portions of it to me. We both laughed out loud, particularly because in the poems we could hear the voices of cats we've lived with (not owned; people don't really own cats). The author writes in different poetic styles (e.g., haiku) appropriate for the poem at hand. If you love cats but don't think you like poetry, this book could change your mind.

    Cute, entertaining, humorous, insightful, fun. Well worth the money. Keep it, refer to it, share it with friends and family. Cat lovers will really enjoy this. Non-cat afficianados will probably chuckle, too.

    Cute, but not 10 bucks worth of cute

    This is a review for everyone that got something else for a free sample like me (grrrr b&n). I was curious so I took the plunge. Don't buy this on an e-reader, this is one of those books that you get in hard copy. Like my headline says, cute but not 10 dollars ( more or less) of cute and it's only about 26 pages long. The photos are funny, the "poems" slightly less so. Although, as they are written from a cat's perspective I suppose it's asking too much for any literary rules to apply, or make sense, or rhyme or really have anything intelligent to say at all (dog lover here) :-)

    Buy the hard copy, at least you can cut out the cute/funny pix and prose and turn them into fridge magnets and locker decorations.

    Paws-itively Purr-fect!

    As a cat lover and teacher of English and Creative Writing (high school)I was so intrigued by the idea behind this book that I had to have it. It's a delightful read and gave me as much insight into what my two felines might be musing about as Gwen Cooper's fabulous novel LOVE SAVES THE DAY. A definite "paws up!"

    Anyboy who has been owned by or known a cat will enjoy this one. There were many laugh-out-loud poems and all brought a smile or nod of the head. I will keep this one to read again.

    To B+N:

    If the sample I wanted was of a book called Frost Fire, I would have looked for that! I wanted kitties, not torrid romance novels.
