    1. This is about cats and how awesome and strange they are. I was greatly amused by a review that said that the reviewer wished this book had more substance. My cat is currently sitting on the couch, licking his tummy. His gut is very substantial.



    2. Why yes, I am a crazy cat lady who loves comics. How could I not like this book? It helps, of course, that the observations are spot on. ad most of this book with a cat snoring on one arm and another cat curled up next to my hip. It's not a bad life.



    3. I'm not sure how to rate comics like this but it was hilarious so I'm giving it 5 stars.This pretty much exemplifies why my partner wants a cat and why I don't want one. Yeah they’re funny and cute and a little odd but they’re also annoying and irritating and somewhat evil.This was a really fun read.


    4. This book is adorable. If you like cats you will like this book. If you like cats but don't like this book you are dumb. If you don't like cats, well, that doesn't make you dumb. But you might still like this book.




    5. A gently amusing book for those of us who have lived with cats. My favourite was 'The Look'. We've all been on the receiving end of that one!I liked the stylised drawings of the two cats but I also liked the more realistic ones of them, scattered throughout the book.


    6. This comical study of cat behavior looks at the many remarkable qualities of feline nature. Staples of the animal's evolutionary oddities such as the inexplicable fear of the vacuum, the inability to sit without wandering in circles first, the impromptu sneak attack, and a cat's instinctive desire to prevent humans from accomplishing work at a desk are all covered here in hilarious detail. Any cat owner will recognize the many instances that Jeffery Brown chooses to illustrate. The take on pecul [...]


    7. This is in the same style as "cat getting out of a bag", a mix of cat observation with humorous cartoon style illustrations. If you have ever owned or lived some time with a cat (after all who owns who) you very quickly start to recognise their antics in this book. I think the most entertaining ones are those where you think "yes my cat does that, yes just LIKE that" and that is where i think the appeal of this book really lies. Great read and one I think I could go back to time and time again ( [...]



    8. I felt like there wasn't much of a narrative to most of these observations. I'm open to the idea that I just don't "get it" because I've never been much of a cat person. Most of my friends own cats, so I was hoping this would give me some insight into their world. Unfortunately not.


    9. I think I might have been expecting something other than just cats, but it was just cats. And then it just made me feel like my own cats have been dreadfully unoriginal. But in a good way.



    10. I love cats. They are hilarious. This is a fun light comic book that documents some of the delightfully weird stuff cats do. I would recommend picking it up for a fun 30 minutes of reading.


    11. This little book is an amusing and very funny look into the life and behavior of the amazing and weird species known as cats.




    12. The cats are cute enough, but otherwise, I was pretty disappointed by this one. The cartoons themselves seemed to stop at the level of "these sure are some things that cats do," rather than adding much in the way of observations, or commentary, or humor. The situations are recognizablebut that's all. Any given volume of Garfield is funnier than this, and I don't even particularly like Garfield.


    13. This adorable collection of comics features cats just being their strange selves. I only wish there were more comics featuring text as about 60% of the one page comics are textless. I would categorize this as a realistic fiction comic strip collection. I believe this book is designed for adult cat owners but Id say it is appropriate for ages 8 and up.



    14. Possibly the most accurate book about cats and their weird tendencies the world has ever seen. So cute!
