I could not stop laughing as I read this book! I love reading Quinn's Twitter feed (@quinncy) and her occasional "small stories," and had been dying to read her books. This book consists of essays from her blog "The QC Report," all having to do with life with her cats, dogs, and sometimes rabbits and other animals. Her Consort and Daughter also make appearances, of course. From her cat "Lupac Shapurr" (formerly known as Lulabelle; the story explaining how she comes by the gangsta nickname is ...more

What does it say about me that I am rating Pet Sounds above another recently-read book, Elizabeth Gilbert's Signature of All Things? This is simply a collection of blogs about Quinn's pets. But she is just so funny, and clever! She pokes as much fun at herself as at anyone or anything else. Well, gotta go, my cat's head-butting my face and sitting on my keyboard.

Loved it. Laughed out loud a number of times. As a fellow animal rescue crazy woman, I saw myself in this book a number of times.
