Shelves: humor, cartoons
Nichole Hollander produces another collection of the relationships between men, women, dogs and cats--one upping Thurber!--which is laugh-aloud funny if you know and love any of her topics. You really do have to have a soft spot for cats, though.
Oct 19, 2007 Barb rated it liked it cat IS has nothing to do with his bones - rather the amount of kibble he consumes in a day...and how stressed out he is by having a toddler in the household after living alone for 10 years...This is one of those books that's good for leaving in neutral territory - where people don't mind wasting time reading the bathroom...

This a collection of cartoons from Nicole Hollander all about cats. Sarcastic, and sometimes really mean, this is not the book for everyone. But if you are owned by cats, you need to read this, because you will see yourself and, most definitely, your cats in this collection.

One word can explain this book. Hilarious, truly for one who's sad, especially the back: 'Did I hide your itty-bitty computer, the one with all your appointment on it? Maybe. Perhaps a bucket of chicken will jog my memory" SUPER FUNNY!!
