A perfect (or should that be purrfect?) little gift for cat lovers and owners. It's full of humorous anecdotes which those who do or have ever owned a cat will understand and appreciate. I think I will have to keep it hidden from my cats so that they don't get even more ideas!

A fun little Secret Santa gift I received. A great gift idea for any cat's 'staff'.

This little gem is absolutely spot on, not to mention hilarious! I'm hiding it from my cat in case she gets any ideas! Perfect for anyone who belongs to a cat =)

Lette le recensioni su Anobii, pensavo di meglio..... invece si limita a raccontare cose che sono scontate e luoghi comuni sui mici, e tralascia qual'� invece il vero spirito gattesco con il suo umano.... cosa che conosco bene perch� sono stata adottata a ritmo pieno da una di loro :) Alla fine, forse era meglio dedicarsi di pi� allo spirito casalingo che dedicare intere pagine al fatto che tornano con i topi morti a casa. Verissimo, il mio micio selvatico lo fa, mi omaggia di queste leccornie, ...more

Un divertentissimo manuale di consigli, da gatto a gatto, su come trattare con i propri padroni per farli rigar dritto.
Perché un gatto vuole la pappa buona, non quella scadente; e il letto è suo, se ve lo concede è per pura magnanimità; e potete utilizzare la poltrona solo finché lui non c'è, perché appena arriva quello è il suo posto.
Non fatelo leggere ai vostri gatti, mi raccomando.
Io ho l'impressione che almeno uno dei miei mici l'abbia letto...

Davvero molto divertente, ma decisamente microsc

Read this as it was a Christmas gift, and money from sales goes to the Cats Protection League, so, yay! Not so much a comedy book as a list of what cats tend to do, with very paw puns (arf arf). Cheesy. Very cute kitty pictures in this, though - old black and white etchings of kitties doing cute human things, including a dead ringer for Puss in Boots, minus the Boots.

An amusing little book. A stocking filler, yes, but a fun stocking filler which will entertain cat owners who fancy a cat's-eye view of the human-feline relationship. As is frequently said, and as quoted on the back of the book, "Dogs may have masters. We cats have staff." So you can regard this as a brief training manual to help you develop the staff you feel you deserve.

A very cute and humorous little book! I think that if you've ever lived with cats - you'll find a passage in here that will speak to you! Wonderful quick read for a day after finishing a book.

I finished this quickly and thought it was cute.

Part of a bookcrossing bookring. Read and passed on.

Humorous. If you have a cat then there's a lot to relate to. Good time filler.

Not only is this book interesting, it is hilarious too!!!!!

The book tells you all about your cats dislikes and likes (about yourself).

This is a great book for cat owners!

"I have loved animals from as far back as I can remember", writes Celia Haddon. "As a child, I realised that some animals suffered at the hands of ignorant humans. To right this I have published several books about cats. Cats make me laugh. We humans don't really understand them, though. If we did, they would have a happier life.

For 20 years I wrote about companion animals (pets) for the Daily Tel
