The Unadulterated Cat

January 27, 2011

I devoured this book in a matter of a few short hours!!

The Campaign For Real Cats, Pratchett tells us, wants to celebrate the dwindling number of Real Cats in the world by helping people identify Real Cats among their modern, Unreal Cat compatriots. The book describes how to spot a Real Cat in any of its several variations, defines eleven types of cats such as your classic farm cat, boot-faced cat (as Real as they come), arch-villain’s cat (always Unreal), and cartoon cats.  He offers useful tips on naming cats, describes common illnesses such as impatient feet, gives “tips” on feeding and disciplining cats, describes common cat games, indulges in the theory of the Schrodinger, time-traveling cat, looks at the cat in history, and offers other insightful, highly comical ideas and theories on cat-ness in general.

Overall a witty insightful wildly comical peek at cats, their behaviour, their thoughts and their reactions!!  Everyone would enjoy this book, but only the cat owners would undertsand the undercurrent of truth running through the book!

    Sounds like an interesting book although I have had cats in the past I’m not a current cat owner.
