I found this book hilarious! Being both a cat and book lover i saw this book and had to read it. The book cleverly takes everyday tasks that humans do and portrays them from a cat's point of view. The sarcasm is ingenius and is good for anyone who loves a giggle. This book is ideal for cat lovers and will certainly make you smile.

What can I say? Hillarious especially if you have cats of your own as you will swear that you have seen them look like they are saying some of these things.

A truly wonderful book for all cat lovers like me. Everything described about cats in this book seems very familiar to me when I look at my cats. The only disadvantage is that the book itself is too short. But a worthwhile read.

I gave this book to my daughter who loves cats, all types, real, china and fluffy etc.,

I flipped through it, and thoroughly enjoyed it, the author certainly knows their cats, and I would say any one who has cats, has had cats, or just love cats it is a must.

I knew cats thought like that. A lovely litte book that will make you smile if you like furry felines.

We were tempted by the glowing reviews, and as cat owners who like cat humour such as the brilliantly observed Simon's Cat YouTube cartoon clips. However both my girlfriend and I were faintly disappointed with this book.

As the title says, it is in the format of short "thoughts" cats might have as the "real owners" of their humans, and almost as an instruction manual for cats on how to deal with the bumbling humans. They are of course things that most of us can identify with, and quite a few are presented in an originally humorous way, e.g. that cats should rub hair onto all surfaces in the home to help humans deal with the fact that they are sadly handicapped by being almost hairless.

It is a premise that should work well, but the thing is that the quality of the writing feels a bit forced and amateur. The language is quite matter-of-fact, it does not come across as sharp wit (if that was the intention), written by someone for whom humour just comes out naturally. Without wanting to offend, it feels a bit like it's written by / for people whose houses are festooned with cat ornaments and who own a jumper with kittens on it (possibly knitted out of cat hair) :P As a second-hand purchase for a few pounds it was OK, but I would not say that it's an amazing gift for a discerning cat owner...

If you need a really good laugh bye this book - bought this for a friend in the office. The rest of the girls were reading it and found it really funny. Even if you don't like cats this is a great book.

I bought this book for my neice, who is 9, and has always been mad about cats. I read it before I gave it to her (naughty, I know) and although I understood the humour and found myself laughing out loud on couple of occasions, I fear that this book is more suited to adults than children.

A good read, don't get me wrong, but it didn't suit it's purpose in my case.

Good book, although it's one of those small ones you can get through in half hour.
Honestly, I wish I hadn't wasted my money. It was funny for about 10 minutes, then I had read the thing !
I would recommend it only as a small gift to a cat lover :0)
