MSCOZY reviewed Bad Cat: 244 Not-So-Pretty Kitties and Cats Gone Bad on
Helpful Score: 4
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!!
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 am so glad to have come across this book. Anyone who loves cats and most likely people who don't would enjoy this book. I found it so funny that I would wake in the middle of the night, take a look, and just not be able to stop laughing. It's amazing that half of these pictures even got taken. Definitely a book any cat lover should check out!
This book is comprised of 244 portraits of cute, albeit naughty felines with hilarious captions. Many of these cats resemble vampires, eery! Have you ever wondered what your cat is really thinking? You will surely get some ideas from this book as well as the website http://www.mycathatesyou.com, but Jim Edgar warns, "Kids, stay away! And all Homo sapiens beware." I highly recommend this book, a definite must-read for all cat lovers! Remember, you do not own your cat, your cat owns you.
This is a really cute book. The photos are great and they have some real funny captions...
My son loves this book and has wore it out looking at it over and over. Choosing his faves.. These kitties remind us of ours at the house.
If one finds cats dressed in ridiculous costumes or in uncomfortable situations amusing you'll like this book.
I found nothing humorous about it.
Similar to laughing at drunks or others in dire situations, this compilation of photographs of their 'beloved' kitties reflects the owners' disrespect and disregard of their pets--- laughing at and publicly posting their subversive abuse of the trust that should be inherent in the pet/owner dynamic.
I ordered this book assuming it was based on natural cat antics... It is not.
Written by an opportunist that has never owned a cat and has no idea of cat mentality -which is complex- Jim Edgar has a website available to post photos of cats: Mycathatesyou.com.
Hilarious! Any cat lover will identify with the antics portrayed here. Not all those cute kittens. These are the real thing and the captions and "hobbies" of the cats are priceless. Good condition with just a discreet fang mark in one corner of the cover from my own little scamp cat, Alchemy.
This book is a little, glossy paper, sad imitation of LOLcats/icanhazcheezeburger. My grandson likes the pictures, but he's not even 3 yet. Some of the captions are not suitable for kids that can read.
