About the Book
For thousands of years cats have strived to express to humans what it means to be feline. They have tried body language, plaintive meowing, even a filmmaking style best described as “fallen camera nudged across floor until forgotten or smeared with saliva.” And for thousands of years we humans have witnessed this unending struggle for true emotional and spiritual connection and said, “Wook at that wittle furry face! Wook at that wittle furry face! Who’s got a wittle furry face? You’ve got a wittle furry face!”
But now, through the power of poetry and a publishing contract, cats everywhere can welcome people into their hearts, minds, and souls. Within "I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats" you’ll find poems penned by cats that reveal their every desire, their every conflict, and their every epiphany. You’ll also discover why cats do things like put their whole paw in your glass and then look at you as if you’ve never had a date over for wine before. Seriously, their whole paw. Like they think it’s easy to get cabernet out of orange tabby.
Divided by such scientific categories as “Family,” “Work,” “Play,” and “Existence,” "I Could Pee on This" will help build a bridge between you and your cat. A bridge your cat may just sleep on. Or knock over no matter how many times you say don't touch it. Or ignore completely even though you got it just for them, instead squeezing their body into a box meant to hold two Chiclets.
Or you and your cat can start a book club.
