Oh, cat books. As hard as I try and stay away from your infinite silliness, it's forever a losing battle. Like air boxing.

But their cuteness cannot be denied. Admit it. Cats can be crazy cute.

But... of course they have their moments. Moments where one can only stare in horror and wonder what monster you brought home to live with you.

They're basically just a furry paper weight that lacks any true purpose.

But what would do you think your cat would say to you if it could speak? Or if it could even

I got this book from my sister in law, who brought it to the nursing home to read to my Mom in her final days. It's silly, sarcastic, and just what was need to help keep the mood light.

When I started the book, my Mom's eyes were open, so I was able to show her the adorable cat pictures that coincide with each letter that I read. Toward the end, it was just the letters that kept us entertained. Even with a heavy heart, these cat written letters made me laugh out loud.

I highly recommend this book

Ok - yes - I wanted to read this book because of the title and the cover. I thought this would be a book that I would look at once and that would be that.

As it turns out, I’ve looked at this little gem of a book several times already - mostly when I need a good laugh. The author is spot on about cat behavior. The pictures go along perfectly with each little tale. This book is a keeper. Have a friend who is also a cat lover and could use a chuckle - consider giving this as a gift. You won’t go wr

This book would deserve 5 stars for the photos alone, but the letters from the kitties just add to the hilarity. You’ll see the world through a cat’s eye view, and be privy to just how your cat’s mind works. You’ll get advice on relationships, sleeping, and eating – things that are of great importance to a cat. This book will bring a smile to your face, even if you are of the canine persuasion.

If I didn’t know the majority of you are pet lovers , and often cat lovers in particular, I would still have to tell you about this amusing new book. My husband and I picked it up as a hostess gift while we were in California in the fall. I nodded and laughed out loud often while reading this one; especially when I would come across a universal cat truth, the kind of thing a cat person will recognize as perfectly ap

Aw, it's over already... I want more.

At this moment in time I'm supposed to be reading other books to review, at least that was the plan, but then I downloaded this title and couldn't stop myself from reading! The smile never left my face whilst I read this little book.

As the co-owner of four cats, you could call me a cat lover, or even a crazy cat lady, and so when I saw this book on Goodreads I just had to check it out and I am so glad th

A little bit of puked on my copy of this book not long after I read it. I am going to buy myself another copy as soon as I have a chance. This is a great and fun book. There is not of course much plot to this it is just a fun little book about cats with cat stories. I love it. I have always given a voice to my cats and this book well sounds like some of the voices I give them. If you want to have a fun and fast laugh this is a book for you. I

I usually review romance novels, but while on NetGalley, I thought I'd check out some other types of titles. I'm glad I did, because I found this.

This was both funny and sweet. I could just about imagine the kitties plotting out the letters and writing them. Every cat I've known just looks like it's plotting anyway.

The photos matched the letters perfectly. My personal favourite was the trio of Blixa, Tiramisu and Zabaglione. However, they were all lovely.

This book contains a lot for the cat lover in us all. For every cat picture, there's a page with words to complement it, written by the cat to a human being. I think a lot of people would find this to be a cute book with some really laughable (in the best sense of the word) and memorable pictures and words.

This was a really funny and cute book. As the owner of a few pesty cats myself, I could appreciate the humor. The photography was great too! The cats in this book are all adorable. If you're looking for a very quick, fun read, and you know the toils of being a crazy cat person, you'd probably enjoy this book. Glad I picked it up.
Another cute story from Jeremy Greenberg. The cat pictures were adorable. Some of the letters had me laughing out loud.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is not my usual type of book, but much to my own surprise, I've developed quite a soft spot for kitties, so when I saw this one available for review on NetGalley, I just had to check it out.

I'm a recent convert to the world of cat-lovers and as a member of that particular "club," I found this little book quite amusing. It would be a perfect gift for the (crazy?) cat person in yo

To see my full review:

This is for us cat lovers out there. I wouldn’t say I’m a “cat lady,” but I do enjoy the companionship I have with my two felines, and their awkward sleeping habits, as well as strange actions in general make me giggle on many an occasion. I actually picked this one up on Netgalley because, not too long ago, my Bella did barf on my bed—while I was in it, no less. I woke up to it, right below my chin, on my brand new comforter. Best. Present. Ever.

Silly and sweet, Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed satisfies the need to laugh at the wee beasties we live with.

This is a feel-good book that would be great on a phone, so you can flip through it while standing in line at Walmart. Ah! A natural stress remedy.

I, for one, am looking forward to my letter from my cat, Bluebell, who has a tendency to treat my fingers like hot dogs, or at least small cocktail wieners.

Is it any wonder this was written by a comedian? Cat lover that I am, I sat down with this book and laughed out loud. The photography is fabulous and catches cats in all kinds of poses to go with words you may think your cat would say if only they could speak. Sure, what they're really thinking about is that leaf, bug, or bird skittering across the deck outside the window; or they're thinking about food or napping in that tiny scrap of sun coming through the blinds. However, cat lovers tend to t ...more

Jeremy Greenberg clearly knows cats. Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed is a collection of very short letters from cats to their owners. Each story is accompanied by a super cute kitty photo that sets the scene for the letter. I'm a sucker for black cats so I think "Dear Bewitched Bed Warmer" was probably my favorite. If you have ever been owned by a cat, most of these stories will sound familiar. Who doesn't love a cat in a fresh laundry basket or a cat in a shiny new box?

I received a copy of this book through NetGalley.

I loved this book! I found it quite funny and laughed on almost every single page. The pictures are realistic and captured the kitties and their personalities so well. The author did a fantastic job on his letters and made them so personal, but yet so darn true, up to date and hilarious. It's also a quick uplifting read and I would find it hard to believe if someone could read this book without laughing once. A great read and/ or gift for a cat l

Are you a cat lover? Are you looking for a pressie for a cat lover? If you answered yes to either of these, then I recommend you check this book out.

A short book of letters from cats to their 'owners' accompanied with cute photos. This book will make you laugh and want go find your own cat for a cuddle. Adorable cute and captures the quirky, contrary nature of cats perfectly.

And it will also have you writing a letter from your own cat to you. Or maybe that's just me!

Sometimes, you just need a short, fun read to make you smile.
That's what this book promised, and it delivered.

The layout of the book is a cute cat photo along with a brief bio and a heartfelt letter from the cat on a variety of subjects. It's a short read but long on smiles.

Jillian and Didjeradoo were my favorites. Who were yours?

If you've ever owned a cat, or multiple cats, you will likely find this little coffee table book to be laugh-out-loud funny. (Or smile worthy at the least). The photography included provides an emotional link to each "letter writer" only a cat lover could understand. A good read if you need a chuckle.

So cute....and such an easy read. My kitties have needed to apologize for barfing on my bed more times than I'd like to admit. Ahh the perils of having pets. It's worth every ounce of the inconvenience. hey my bed is washable.

This is a darling collection of funny letters from cats to their “owners.” I received this book as a birthday present from one of my dearest friends earlier this year. Although I read a few of the letters when I received it, I hadn't had time to sit down to read the book cover-to-cover until now. Well, now, if that title doesn’t catch your attention, nothing will. What a fun read! I especially enjoyed the greetings of each letter (e.g., Dear Insomniac, Door Opener, Attention Giver) and the closi ...more

I needed a quick pick-me-up and that is what I found in this book. As a first-time cat owner I still find the things my cat does amusing. Clearly the author feels the same and is able to put himself in the cats place and say what they must be thinking in awkward times. The book is pretty straight forward, letters from cats accompanied with pictures of cats in compromising situations.

The pictures are all amateur, but that shows you that these aren’t trained H

Suffice it to say, I did not enjoy this little book targeted towards a cat lovers.

What I Liked:
1. The pictures of the cats and kittens were quite cute.
2. The premise of cats and kittens writing letters was adorable.

What I Didn't Like:
1. The letters did not draw me in. Even though each letter was short, my attention span drifted while reading them.
