A purrr-fect summertime read

For all you cat lovers and cat enthusiasts, or cat people you know, this one’s for you!

Through our book reviews, we introduced you to ” Why Cats Paint” and “Dancing With Cats.”

But who knew that our cats could also write poetry?!

And that is exactly what this book is: feline poetry and prose. And our furry friends have a lot to say!

Of course our store cat, Celeste (“The Boss”), has put her paw print of approval on this book!

Francesco Marciuliano, the author of the internationally syndicated comic strip “Sally Forth,” has allowed these cats to freely express themselves on every page of “I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats.”

Funny as well as insightful, these pages make you feel like your cat could have written any one of these.

It truly captures the hearts, minds and souls of our domestic felines.

The cat pictures and illustrations show these wonderful kitties in adorable poses that easily pull you right in.

Does your cat sit on your face? Does your cat do things to you while you are sleeping?

Ever feel you are owned by your cat? Does your cat bring you or leave you disgusting “gifts”?

Wonderful titles such as “This Is My Chair,” “Tripped,” “Talk To Me,” “Nudge,” “I Lick Your Nose,” “Kneel Before Me” and “man’s Best Friend” will have you in stitches!

Each one just makes you want to read the next one!

If you or a friend ever feel down this book will immediately lift your spirits!

The book is a small hard-cover that is easy to read and an obvious conversation starter on your coffee table.
