Book Overview

Cats have nine lives. Shouldn't they be lived to the fullest? "Domesticated" does not mean "docile." The ho-hum routine of sleep, eat, eat, and sleep is no way for any creature who ruled Egypt for a millennium to spend her day. It's high time felines everywhere woke up from their cat naps and grabbed life's strings with both paws. The Devious Book for Cats offers today's discerning kitties words of wisdom and advice on everything they need to know,...

Absolutely hilarious

I am a definite cat person. I love all animals, but my cats are (in my opinion) the funniest little beasties I've ever had the privilege of knowing. This book does right by cats. It's an absolutely hilarious book that has me cracking up almost every page. I have a quirky sense of humor so finding something to keep me laughing out loud for a long period of time isn't a terribly common occurrence for me. Five stars because it's very, very funny, as well as an attractively bound book that is printed on high-quality paper. The little illustrations throughout are wonderful. Absolutely recommended! (I don't know why the recommended tags include "girls," and "gifts for girls"- really, this book is good for folks of any gender so long as they're cat lovers with a slightly snarky sense of humor.)

Best Laugh I've had in a while

I love this book. I've been down lately and it really made me feel better for a few minutes. If you're looking for a light-hearted read, it's absolutely hilarious!

A Holiday must-have for cat owners!

Searching for a holiday gift for the cat-lover in your life? Look no further - this book made me, and my cat, laugh out loud.

instant classic

Short review: an instant classic! As a cat owner, I think it's brilliant :)

Laugh-out-loud funny

Over the years I've read many supposed-to-be-funny-and-clever little books about cats. This is because I live with a lot of cats and a lot of books, and people tend to think that if you like books and cats, then you certainly must find any book with "cat" in the title to be of significant interest. As a result, birthdays and holidays around here often end up looking like a collection site for a charity book sale drive. And a lot of those little cat books DO end up going to charity, because frankly, quite a few are neither all that clever nor all that funny, in my opinion. There have been exceptions, but they are just that -- exceptions. The Devious Book for Cats is one such exception. I received it the other day, and just flipping through and reading random sections left me laughing out loud. Really loud. Quite a few times. Given the current state of the economy and soaring prices for cat food and litter, I must tell you that I have not been in much of a laughing mood lately. The catnip budget around here has suffered quite a bit in recent months, just trying to put kibble on the table, you know. So this book is a welcome mood-brightener. I like this book so much in fact, that I am ordering several more copies to send as holiday gifts. Anyone familiar with the feline lifestyle should find this book entertaining. The authors, Fluffy and Bonkers, have written an unusually creative, original and inventive guidebook. And even though I am extremely busy these days watching birds out the window and napping, I am going to sit down on that book and absorb it more fully at my first opportunity.
