Overview

A hilarious collection of over 100 four color cat cartoons including cutting edge design and snarky commentary about the joined lives of cats and humans. The hugely successful blog catvshuman.com receives over 6,000 page views per day, and many of its cartoons have gone viral. 40% new material unpublished on the website.

Yasmine Surovec began sketching her clever and sarcastic Cat Versus Human cartoons as a way to relax and unwind. Soon, her popular blog at catversushuman.blogspot.com began receiving as many as 12,000 hits per day, with a number of posts going viral and appearing on popular Web sites such as The Huffington Post and I Can Has Cheezburger. Now, a selection of 100 Cat Versus Human strips--many never previously published--can be found inside this inaugural collection of Cat Versus Human.

Proud owners of Felis domesticus will instantly recognize Surovec's keen insights into cat behavior and all of the characteristic intricacies of the cat-human relationship, such as the allure of an empty cardboard box trumping an expensive battery-operated toy or how a cat's favorite nap spot might as easily be inside a litter box, on top of clean laundry, or directly on top of a human face. Cat Versus Human also encourages an affectionate look at your once-was-in-mint-condition midcentury modern sofa that is now being unstuffed one cat claw at a time.

Editorial Reviews

There is something inherently uncomfortable about the relationship between humans and cats. For starters, cats aren't cuddly, tail-wagging, codependent dogs; they're furry lumps of independence, capable of enslaving most of us in a minute. Yasmine Suronev's Cat Versus Human blog became an internet sensation because it catches the bizarre intricateness of that relationship. This paperback contains 100 four-color cat cartoons, forty percent of them previously unpublished. Affectionate human catnip.

From the Publisher
"... playfully primitive and very humorous." (Lisa Goldstein, School Library Journal)
School Library Journal
Gr 10 Up—This collection of single cartoons and comic strips chronicles the ups and downs of owning, and loving, cats. They destroy the narrator's furniture, dream of clawing her into a bloody mess, and track hair in her artisanal cheese, but she continues to love them. The illustrations are playfully primitive and very humorous. Somehow Surovec manages to convey a variety of expressions without giving any of her human protagonists noses, teeth, or eyebrows. Teen cat owners may enjoy this, but its true audience is with adults: the main character is a married woman whose friends pressure her to have babies.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library, NY
