I loved this little manual. Appraoching cat ownership in a similar vein as operating hardware - downloads (!!), plug-ins, etc. Very humorous, but also very informative. The illustrations are a scream too. I thought I knew everything about cats but I actually learned a thing or two.

Written like an owner's manual, this little guide is packed full of useful information. If you only get one book to guide you as a feline owner, this one should be it!

This is a humorous and informative book about cats. We enjoyed it and learned about various questions we had when we first got our cats 3 1/2 years ago. It is written like a manual for a vehicle, which makes it even more humorous. I hope you enjoy it!

I've been reading this off and on for a week or so and though it has good basic information about raising cats, the different breeds, etc. the humor of it escapes me. It's written in the tone of a user manual and every now and again the author will write something such as referring to training as a "software downloads" or "add-on" which always managed to throw me right out of the book and break my concentration which I don't was the intent of the author.

Despite the overly cutesy manual style which I'm doing my best to ignore, the book does have interesting tidbits. Never knew you could train a kitty "sit", "down" and leash walking. I thought my mom was the only nutty who walked cats and ferrets on a leash around the neighborhood!
