Publisher's Summary

Humorous advice for cats, by cats.

The author "discovered" the feline world's best-kept secret in a file hidden on his mother's computer by her cat, Cleo, and now shares it with humanity for the first time. Topics covered range from avoiding visits to the vet, to the artful display of captured prey, to getting in the way of a human trying to read anything, including this paragraph. Upon publication, Cleo denied authorship and hired a team of lawyers with their claws out, but despite her best efforts, word is spreading with over 75,000 Kindle downloads:

The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages.

From the author of Cave Passages and Dark Life.

Cute short listen for cat lovers

What made the experience of listening to The Cat Manual the most enjoyable?

It was funny and I could envision any cat saying these things. For those of us who have made a cat a member of the family you will appreciate this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cat Manual?

The part where the cat describes the best way to wake up your human. I have experienced all of those things.

What about Michael Ray Taylor’s performance did you like?

He did a good job. Did not overact and displayed the appropriate amount of sarcasm for the material.

What did you learn from The Cat Manual that you would use in your daily life?

To avoid being a sucker : ) I have 2 cats and they know what they cannot get away with in my house with me. Unfortunately, they do try out anyone who visits with the begging to see if they have found a sucker.

Any additional comments?

This was a good light book to listen to and make you smile/laugh. I will listen to it again because it would help de-stress me on the commute home.

peed myself almost ,its a very funny and true book

Got the book on a whim, and because I have a smart ass cat! I cannot believe how accurate and funny this book is and it had me laughing so hard , I haven't had such a good laugh in years , a very unexpected delight in a world grown so cynical and hard. If you want to learn a bunch of crazy new facts ( cats collects gravitons) and brighten your day , you simply can not go wrong adding this to your collection!
I only wish is was longer!
