Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

Mew may remember last week I told mew about the P.A.'s big clean up, well that is still in progress. Things got stalled as the P.A.'s schedule is stupidly busy at the moment, so my lovely library is still a complete tip, which as mew can imagine displeases me immensely.

But the good news is Pandora introduced me to the Joys of Yoga this week, so my stress levels are minimal, plus I got to sample some fresh catnip out of the garden, which was epic and even more epically epic than that I discovered a book I purrchased quite a while ago which has given me lots of ideas on how to deal with things should the P.A. fail to finish the big clean up this week! MOL

And on that note, I think it's time to share this weeks book.

This week I'm sharing

 How To Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting To Kill You

Here's a little snippet of the book blurb:

How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a very funny, creative selection of comics, facts, and instructional guides, which all stem from the creative wonderland at 


How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you reviewed by Amber, book review by amber the cat, library cat, cat with books, books with cats, funny book

This is my fierce face and mew may be wundering why I've chosen this purrticular expression in the photo, well today's book inspired me and I was purracticing the 'stink-eye' as described on page 22.    

Did I nail it? Of course I did! MOL

So what did I think about this book?  I did enjoy it, though the title is rather misleading as it's not all about plotting to kill your hooman. The section on plotting, I suggest mew don't read it in front of your pawrents, as this is strictly covert info and should actually come with a warning on saying 'CATS EYES ONLY' and there's even a nifty corresponding pull-out poster in the back, which I suggest mew keep and put somewhere safe fur future purrusals and ideas.

As I said it's not all about plotting, there are a few other sections within the book featuring: cartoons, things cats love and dealing with cat litter to name a few, though one chapter is about how to tell if your cat is gay; now some of mew may find this purrticular section funny and others may find it offensive - mew can make up your own mind about this chapter, should mew choose to take the plunge and get it.

 So the big question is, would I recommend this book to mew?  I would, as it's generally tongue in cheek, and quite funny in places.

  1. Somebody gave this book to my human. She wasn't all that thrilled with it.

    1. Oh dear Summer, mind you the P.A. was disappointed as she thought it was more about plotting to eradicate! MOL MOL XOX

  2. I am glad the nip reduced your stress levels. You wouldn't be able to do your review justice if you were all stressed out. BTW, that's an excellent stink eye.

    1. Oh thanks goodness fur nip, and so glad mew liked my stink-eye, I thought it was purretty epic! MOL XOX

  3. Fresh nip always helps da stress!

  4. That was a great review sweet Amber but I'm not sure about this one, the title is pretty dumb.

    1. MOL Brian, The Title was furry misleading, if I'd known what it really was I would have purrobably not purrchased it! MOL XOX

  5. Cats don't want to kill their humans...who will open the cans of stinky goodness?

  6. amber....we iz deff a net lee gonna hafta chex thiz one out N get sum tipz !! :) ☺☺♥♥

  7. We've read this one before ... and we approve. Though we didn't think the part about the cat in the office (maybe called bob cats?) was funny or maybe that was another book.

    1. Guys it was a bit strange, not what I thought, but funny in places! XOX

  8. Oooh, I have this but haven't read it. It's sort of like a nuclear deterrent, MOL
