Product Description

--Brooklyn Paper

--Verbicide Magazine

--Cat Wisdom 101

"Something good to read with your kids."
--The Big Takeover

--Persephone Magazine

"Feeling down? Leafing through this book is sure to make you smile! It is the purrfect gift for cat lovers of all ages and one you will want to turn the pages of again and again! It's also purrfect cocktail party fodder, keep this just a paw's reach away on your coffee-table, you have an instant conversation starter!"

--Bergers Book Reviews

"Hey David, it's me BUB. I read your book, and can't deny that I didn't read the whole thing in the first sitting. 'Catsup' and 'Catastrophe' are worth the price of admission alone. WOW YOW, MEOW."
--Lil BUB, Internet cat celebrity

David Yow's cat portraits, captured here for the first time in book form, are bold, striking, hilarious, and beautiful. Each portrait is based around a pun, but they capture so much more than wordplay. All cat lovers will find something to relish in this gorgeous coffee-table book, which is the perfect gift for cat enthusiasts, animal lovers, and anyone with a playful sense of humor.

About the book, David Yow says: "I love cats. Always have. The only time I didn't have a cat was a brief hell in Chicago where I lived in an apartment whose landlord didn't allow them. At that place, I had a life-sized cardboard cutout of a cat which I named Toody. I also love wordplay. I'm the only adult I hang out with who still gets a kick out of puns. I make up palindromes. I used to write songs and poems (these days, I leave that for the songwriters and poets); in this book of cat-pun drawings, I have made a concerted effort to come up with ideas that range from really funny to really amusing. The entire litter of animals in this book are line drawings that are 'colored in' with photographic textures, and each cat is dropped into a photographic setting. Yep, that's the truth."
