    Oh my gosh, this book is hilarious!!And the illustrations are priceless.Cat owners will enjoy, written by "Fluffy and Bonkers", i.e. some co-editors of The Onion. Some examples of chapter titles are, 'Toying with Allergy Sufferers', 'Catfight! Five Moves you Should Know', 'Outsmarting Your Toys' and 'The Pros and Cons of Being Sullen'.

    This is hysterical, and the authors really get cats. The funny is not a surprise; the authors write for "The Onion". However, it was a delight to read something that really did sound true to life for the ways cats think. I strongly recommend this for cat- and book-lovers!

    I received this little gem as a Christmas present from my sister, and while I don't generally read much humor/parody, I knew I was going to love this book! With chapters such as "Reasons You Meant to Do That," "Kitty Litter Explained," "For Black Cats - Making the Most of Superstition," and ""Getting Away With It," The Devious Book for Cats is the perfect book for any cat lover (and her cats, of course!) The authors have expertly captures most of the cat-isms and behaviors we all know and love, [...]

    A secret look into the cat lifestyle.This book is all about how to live your nine lives to their fullest, whether it be about how to pick the purrfect gift for your human or how to annihilate the furniture despite being declawed. There's even a (short) chapter on dogs.There's also some learning opportunities slipped in, such as a version of the legend of the Maneki Neko and information on how cats eat.If you like cats, this book is laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend it.

    I was looking for something by Mr. Cox, but our library didn't have anything so I checked to see what there was at 636.8, and found this. It is written by comics so one shouldn't expect too much real advice for either cats or "persons" but there were some real bits of information: do not flush litter down the toilet and realise that that window is a source of unending entertainment even if kitty seems to be napping all the time. Entertainment for the indoor cat is vital since real hunting is den [...]

    In the process of reading this, I gave it five stars. I'm going to have to up that rating to 10 STARS. As a person to two cats ('cause you know you don't own cats, they own you), I can definitely relate to much of what's in this book. Also, it helped me to better understand the furry felines who have conscented to share living quarters with me. At last, at long last I know the truth about the vacuum And why that closet door that is kept shut is such an obsession And countless other things that, [...]

    Rating: 3.5Ha! This book was very entertaining, and very funny. Now I know why my cat runs into walls, knocks things off my shelves, and tries to rip apart the furniture on occasion.The Devious Book for Cats is a parody written for cats by “cats.” It’s essentially a guide for cats explaining what fun games to play, proper cat edicate, the history of cats, etc. It is a guide complete with tips and some (very funny) pictures. This book would be a great book to give as a gift for somebody, or [...]

    I think my cat has been reading this book, he certainly acts the way it tells cats to act in here. And I bet he found some comfort in the fact that he is not the only cat scared of the hoover. This book made me laugh out loud. With quotes such as "Shopping Bag:What's in that bag? Are you in that bag? If not, get in there!" and the chapter on dogs which is one line "Some people seem to like dogs. Your guess is as good as ours." This is a must read for any cat lovers :)

    Penned by Fluffy and Bonkers, this book is a soliloquy of the life of a cat. Cat lovers will appreciate all the inside facts and hilarity, replete with diagrams and how-to illustrations. I was laughing my head off. The chapter on dogs is one line long. SImple as that. If you like cats, read this book. Now.

    I enjoyed some parts of this book more than others. The chapter on how to pick proper boxes was funny, and I enjoyed the part on catnip. Some of the other chapters, though, were just humdrum. Luckily, I think this is a book you could pick and choose your way through, and the chapters are short enough that you won't feel like you've wasted your time anywhere.

    This book gave me many nights of giggles. Every time I read a new page I was compelled to seek out my own two cats to see what they were up to and to compare their behaviour. Very cute and easy read for anyone who is a cat lover and who loves their cat's quirky personality traits.

    This was a short, funny book. I was very amused. Even though it was a short book, it was still longer than I expected. I especially loved the chapter on Dogs, and the chapter on litter boxes really made me laugh since my mother's cat is currently going through one of the phases.

    I absolutely loved this book! It was wonderful and warm hearted, looking at things from the cat's perspective rather than a human's. I kept looking at my cats (who were found when only a few weeks old and I subsequently adopted from a cat rescue charity) and thinking that they'd had some input to this book, it was so accurate.Light reading, full of belly laughs and chuckles. It gave some refreshing light relief away from every day life and I would highly recommend, even for those who don't have [...]

    Great book for car loversAnyone who has ever been owned by a car will appreciate this book. While you are busy laughing you will also be nodding your head. You will know your cat was thinking the same way. Quick read, humorous. A delightful piece of brain candy.

    A fun read for a cat owner. If you have ever owned a cat you will easily see the author's human interpretation of what they may be thinking.

    This book is so cute and funny! I had to show my husband several of the drawings and read aloud some of the lines. We have three cats and I have no doubt that this is how they think.

    A collection of short pieces. Some are wonderful. Some are meh. Worth an evening or two during a hard week.

    This is the lamest cat-humor book I've come across. The skits were dumb, the art wasn't very good (except for the OK cover). It's even a dumb title. Basically, this one failed me. Back it goes.Caveat: I skimmed. But I've tried twice now on this turkey. Hell with it.

    really should have half stars feature. I feel bad that I gave only 3 stars because some parts were genuinely funnybut in general this leans more to "I like it" rather than "I really like it", hence the rating."To dogs, people are masters; to cats, people are servants". True to that joke, this "by cats, for cats" book detailed various ways to dominate the world from the lap of their person. It is started with explanation on how cats were worshipped in the ancient Egypt, and how cats influence hum [...]

    Thd Devious Book for Cats aims to help your housecat get the most out of his or her nine lives. It offers tips on a variety of subjects such as how to wake your human up when you need feed, hunting wild game, and the international sport of shelf swat. Also included are tales of famous cats thru out history to provide inspiration for a life well-lived and a typical programming schedule for various windows around the house. Not sure what our three kitties thought of this book but the shelf swat se [...]

    A funny book of advice for cats from cats. But seriously, it's a parady of the popular Dangerous Book for Boys and Daring Book for Girls that tells the kids how to do stuff that used to be common knowledge for most people. Everything from building a fire safely in the woods to how to play marbles to the importance of writing a letter (yes, with pen and paper) for certain situations. The books also feature lesser known but important men and women from history that the authors felt could be good r [...]

    This is one for true crazy cat owners (in particular those with more than 1 cat). It explains why your little kittyfluff leaves you 'gifts' of mice, birds etc and in particular why they leave the feathers/remains in such a 'charmingly' elaborate fashion for you to fine. Also it offers advice for cats who want to work for villains (every villain worth the name needs a cat after all!)It's a lovely looking edition and contains LOTS of info/fun cat facts, stories etc BUT I do think it's one time rea [...]

    I spied this on a shelf in Goodwill and could not walk out without it. It is absolutely hysterical. So well written for a parody - of course, felines do know felines *wink*. I'm pretty sure my cats have sneaked a peek or two. (In fact I'm not sure they didn't write this under pen names.) Chapters include "Cardboard Boxes," "An Illustrated Guide To Napping," "Catnip," "Reasons You Meant To Do That," and "The Vacuum Cleaner - A Vortex Of Terror." You'll pick up this book even if you're a Dog Perso [...]

    Interesting. Coffee Table book It's not particularly engrossing, but does describe certain cat behaviors to a T. I can relate to many of the things written in here. My favorite sections were on how to wake their person up, the 'window tv' and the one about finicky eating. The one about the vacuum was funny too I liked those kinds of entries much better than "cats in history" which were so ludicrous that there wasn't much point in reading them. It would have been better if they were actually real [...]
