Bad Cat: 244 Not-So-Pretty Kitties and Cats Gone Bad
Bad Cat 244 Not-So-Pretty Kitties and Cats Gone Bad Author:Jim Edgar Not since Kliban has there been a cat book this edgy. Edgy as in Bosco, the demonic Siamese with the out-of-focus eyes, razor-sharp fangs, and his own idea of Feng Shui. Or the half-shaved freak named Mr. Fliegel, who looks like a cross between a poodle and a lion. Mr. Fliegel shrugs and says, "Chicks dig me." Or Kato, resplendent in his Three M... more »usketeers outfit: "One for all, blah blah blah . . . now just get me out of this @#%&ing costume!" Or Clark, whose hobby is eating other cats' food. Tina, who somehow always just misses the litter box . . . sucker. And the guilty-looking Clarence, caught with a Barbie doll in flagrante delicto. Clarence's defiant defense: "She was naked when I came in. . . ." Just as Kliban got us to think about the cat as something far more interesting than an innocuous house pet, and Suzy Becker taught us that cats possess a Buddha-like wisdom (together Cat and All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat have more than 2.6 million copies in print), Jim Edgar reveals yet another facet of the ever-mesmerizing animal. Brooding, deranged, antisocial, these are kitties with attitude and borderline personality problems--ah, but what hilarious fun it is to read about them. All 244 photographed in terrifying full color in their most unflattering moments, with a quote plus vital stats: name, breed, age, and hobby. Get to know them. Then see if you can ever forget them.« less
Even more fun is going through the book and taking the captions and applying them to the pictures in your own "people" album. It's amazing how you can add hours of laughter to a family pictures with the addition of a real off-the-wall caption. You can actually make the most BORING pictures hilarious with the right caption!

I just LOVE this book. Edgar has a way with matching photos to cute little verses. I still read my copy when I need a laugh. Any cat lover should enjoy this book and I only hope he comes out with more of the same in the future! A GREAT stocking stuffer for that cat lover!!
