Stuff On My Cat: The Book

3.73 of 5 stars 3.73  ·  rating details  ·  352 ratings  ·  40 reviews
It began with a handful of digital photographs of office supplies, toys, and spare computer parts thoughtfully placed on Mario Garza's snoozing cat, Love. Over time, the objects became bigger: remote controls, shoes, empty pizza boxes. And then cat owners everywhere were sucked into the Internet phenomenon that is defined by a simple motto: stuff + cats = awesome. From Stu ...more

Erin *The Paperback Stash*
Another bizarre cat book on the desk my co-worker/friend Susan share. This ones adorably simple. Cats dressed up in bizarre costumes, cats with stuff on their heads and bodies, cats posing in all sorts of ways. As you can imagine, some look pretty peeved, others peaceful, and most blissfully unaware of their owners morbid humors as they do what cats do best - sleep! And yes, now I am tempted to just put random stuff on my cats.

I'm at work trying to go about my day - doing the important things that need to be done. Educating the kids, entering the data, conferring with the colleagues, phoning the phonies and i see this book on Sarah's desk and i have to stop and i have to look and what i find is that this book indeed lives up to it's title.
what I can say about this book is that:
1. there are way more photos in the world of cat's with stuff on them then i ever would have guessed
2. sometimes the cat's don't have stuff on

This book served as a real inspiration, now I'M putting stuff on my cat... sometimes I put things on my chihuahua too!*

Stuff on my Cat really is great. It sits in my downstairs loo next to Uncle John's Bathroom Reader - these books keep my husband entertained, and otherwise engaged (in the loo) for hours on end. Thank you Stuff on my Cat, esp. for the one with the kitty with the Gene Wilder signed photo on it's head. Geeeenius!

* 'Things on my Chihuahua' wasn't picked up by any major publishing
I have to be honest here: I really don't like books made out of websites. They tend to be lazy, basically just the stuff you can read online, for free, in a book that you pay for. This book is no different. The website "Stuff on My Cat" is people sending in pictures of stuff on my cat; Here, in this book, is a bunch of those pictures. So if you want to see pictures of stuff on people's cats, go to the website. If you want to spend $9.95 for a book full of them, well, I don't know what to say. Ev ...more

I cannot decide if this is hilarious or animal cruelty.
Stuff on My Cat was cute and mildly entertaining. It had pictures of stuff on cats, and cats in stuff (costumes, clothes, boxes, etc.). Some were funny and cute, other's were kind of just okay, and still others had me asking how did they do that? It was a good book to page through, but not one of my favorites.

Goofy and fun pictures of stuff on cats

The name says it all. Mario Garza has put together a book of photos of…stuff on cats. Whipped cream, boas, legos, pillows, babies–you name it. Great fun for you and your cat! Check out the book and the website to see how you can submit a photo of your favorite feline decked out in his favorite accessory. Just be nice! --Larry

Such a random pick-up from the library while trying to find other books, but it is so cute and funny. Quick read. All pics. Gotta love seeing photos of felines with stuff on them. Some of them are impressive like a whole plate full of food on a cat or a Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon ship on a cat's belly. Even putting cats on top of cats takes some art. Cute book.
This was kind of funny, but I usually felt bad for the cats, who usually looked miserable, angry or annoyed.

Occasionally, though, you run across one who is completely chill, or even looks content at having stuff stacked on it! Those are the funny ones that give this 3 stars.

Weird and funny, like the Bad... series (Bad Cat, Bad Dog, Bad Baby, Bad President). The author is lucky his cat doesn't do the same to him - a cat with a hairball, an attitude, and a camera could wreak havoc.
I like to take a lot of photos of my own cats wearing silly items, so this book did make me chuckle a few times. Don't go into the book thinking that the photos are all going to be clear or well-composed, however. :)

Years ago I stacked pennies on Snootch's head while she just sat there and submitted to my silliness (sorry Sue!)If I had only known this kind of activity would be immortalized into a book I would have taken a picture.

A collection of cute cats with stuff layered on them. Also, some nice cosplay cats as well. You never know what a person will lay on their cat and snap a picture of, when it comes to!

This book features a bunch of goofy, funny, and cute pictures of cats. What's not to like? Personally, I don't think pets should be dressed. Er, uh, well a Santa hat doesn't count!
I originally gave this book 2 stars because there are more cats-in-things than stuff-on-cats, and that was disappointing. The book earned an extra star, though, because cats are awesome.
If you appreciate cats and their often twisted owners, you will love this book. The photos had me cracking up! The second book is hysterical too.
This was a cute but quick read. It is mostly pictures, and it makes you laugh. A good "pick-me-up" book, if that's what you're in the mood for.

Not really something you read, but it's hilarious. If you see it in the store, take thew time to flip through it. You'll have a few chuckles :)
This is a horrible, disgusting, hilarious book. Oh, please don't try this at home with your pet! (But look at it and laugh your ass off!!)
I got this for Jason for Christmas - we passed it around the family gatherings - good for some laughs for sure.

2.5 sometimes. But mostly it's not even that funny, especially taken out of its context of origin (a web site).
This is one of the most revolutionary and inspirational books of our time. I will leave it at that.
Mostly pictures, not super funny or hilarious. Maybe you have to be a cat person.
No captions but it's a fun collection of silly cat pictures. Cool stuff!
Ha ha ha. Very inspiring. If only our cats were so laid back!

The cover is the whole experience, thats all you need to know.

This book is awesome! I love pictures of cute animals!
