Do you wonder what your cat is thinking while stalking the tablecloth fringe or racing through the living room on clearly important but ultimately mysterious business?

We Are the Cat was another random library find, which I grabbed because it looked cute and sort of eclectic. And then it sat around because, of course, I grabbed it when I had about 5 other books going at once. But I started it last night at bedtime, and read the whole thing (175 pages) in just under 4 hours between last night and today.

Really cool idea. A book written from the cat's point of view. However this one Falls absolutely positively short of what it could be

Not bad. A funny book for those who own and love cats, and often imagine what they are thinking. There are some things that I learned about why cats do things, and I thought I knew cats very well. There were things in the book that a responsible cat owner shouldn't do, like letting the cat outside all of the time, also letting them play with yarn that did bother me, though. Overall, it was an okay read, and sounds very familiar.

Was disappointed with this book - wanted it to be more like the dog book. I have 2 cats so was really looking forward to it.

Cute book written from the perspective of the cat. We Laps could use the sage advice of some of these observations. Just a fun read.

I guess it could have been funny. I had other books to read that took my attention.
