Book Description

29 Oct 2009

Cats once were proud, shrewd, independent animals who lived life on our own terms. But then came a life of domestication, comfort and free health care. And now cats are in danger of losing our sense of adventure completely. Fluffy and Bonkers say it's time to fight back and regain control of your rightful place as ruler of the roost once again.

Cats once ruled the alleys, galleys and the valleys. Rodents trembled in fear. Birds steered clear. Cats took chances. Some lived fast and died young… We were on the prowl.

But then came a life of domestication that was simply too good to pass up. Humans gave us everything we desired, from ear massages and shelter from the rain to cuddle sessions and free health care. In return, they were permitted to bask in the majesty of our presence. It seemed like a fair trade.

Or was it? Has domesticity really been good for cats? What has become of our sense of adventure, our sense of independence? Did you know that because of boredom and indolence, the average feline today uses up a mere 2-3 of its 9 lives?

Fluffy and Bonkers think its time to get out of the comfortable back seat of life and regain control of your destiny. They created this manual to teach discerning cats how to wake up a human when they want to get fed, how to stare like a pro, how to carry yourself in a catfight and - most importantly - how to get away with practically anything. With The Devious Book for Cats you can return to the noble creature you once were and assume your rightful place as the ruler of your household once again.

Review

Praise for The Devious Book for Cats:

‘Fluffy and Bonkers … write rather better than the current crop of celebrity autobiographers.’ Daily Mail

From the Back Cover

Cats have nine lives. Shouldn't they be lived to the fullest?

Cats were once proud, shrewd, independent animals who lived fast... and died young. Then came domestication - a life of comfort and free health care.

But has domesticity really been good for cats? What has become of our sense of adventure, our independence? Fluffy and Bonkers say it's time to fight back and regain control of your rightful place as ruler of the roost once again. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purrrfect... 24 Oct 2008
Format:Hardcover
As a cat lover this book instantly appealed to me. The content is witty, sharp and very, very funny! I shall be buying this for many of my relatives, regardless of them liking cats.

An imaginative insight into the minds of cats...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 1 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover
This book is hilarious. (I think my cat has already read it as she knows every devious tactic that is talked about). I liked the cover, the way the book was printed and the general humour. It's one of the best books that I've read for a long time. I passed it on to one of my friends, and she was late getting to work because she became so engrossed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The secret world of the Cat's mind is revealed! 30 July 2009
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book as a present for my cat loving girlfriend and she loved it!! Even I, who is generally indifferent to cats was rolling in laughter!

This is a very, very funny book. Simple as that.

For those of you who has ever owned a cat, you will recognise your cat and any other in these pages, and for those who want a cat in the future, you can be forewarned!

As a hardback this is a very attractive looking book too, a little old fashioned looking in a good way and will make a very nice little present for someone.

If you are considering this, you will not be dissapointed if you get it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bedtime reading for Pebbles 28 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
Pebbles has asked me to tell you how wonderfully informative and practical this books is.

Apart from giving an indepth background on cat behaviour and suggested actions/reaction she should follow, it also gives an insight into her ancestors and the most femous felines around.

Fluffy and Bonkers have excelled themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for cat lovers! 18 Feb 2009
Format:Hardcover
Do not buy this book if you dont love cats, obviously.

If you do buy it, you still have to be prepared to read it from the perspective of a cat, which can be difficult sometimes, but very rewarding after a while.

I would find it hard to give as a gift as its quite involved, but if you think you are up for it, buy it for yourself!!!
