    Narrated from the point of view of the cat, these tails are written with a sly, satirical wit Most of the world s evils are blamed on dogs, while cats are responsible for all that s good, although the nature of good may seem highly skewed because this is a cat centric universe Some of the pieces are essays by Cat Waldo Henderson Some answer universal questions, such as The Origin of Evil, where the first cat Primo bottled up evil as the seeds of a melon, which were too hard to bite an Narrated from the point of view of the cat, these tails are written with a sly, satirical wit Most of the world s evils are blamed on dogs, while cats are responsible for all that s good, although the nature of good may seem highly skewed because this is a cat centric universe Some of the pieces are essays by Cat Waldo Henderson Some answer universal questions, such as The Origin of Evil, where the first cat Primo bottled up evil as the seeds of a melon, which were too hard to bite and would pass through the digestive system intact However, a dog named Pandora came along, broke open the melons, and crunched up the seeds, thus releasing evil into the world Hilarious take on the Greek myth Another essay details how a cat goes about obedience training its humans, and in yet another, The Hunt, the cat brings home a gift I found my way safely home and then gently placed the mouse at the foot of the bed, holding it with my paw until the human noticed my offering When the woman looked down at the mouse wriggling beneath my firm grasp she screamed out her praise Eeeeek she cried Tonkers Not again When I heard the screams I knew that I d done my job I set the mouse free and left the room so that the human could enjoy striking the final blow to her gift I felt content that my place was secure in the household for at least another day I recommend these stories for any cat person They re certainly an original take on the feline theme

    Just Okay After reading the first work in this book I lost interest rather quickly The cat was asleep before I finished the first paragraph But he sleeps through anything any ways.The only thing I found I did not like about the book was it lacked the humor I kind of expected I would find in such a book Why would I expect humor from this book is beyond me But there was none in the first two stories It lacked the hook to keep me reading after this point.I received this book in a Members Give Just Okay After reading the first work in this book I lost interest rather quickly The cat was asleep before I finished the first paragraph But he sleeps through anything any ways.The only thing I found I did not like about the book was it lacked the humor I kind of expected I would find in such a book Why would I expect humor from this book is beyond me But there was none in the first two stories It lacked the hook to keep me reading after this point.I received this book in a Members Giveaway on Library Thing.I give the author 2 out of 5 for effort

    I tend to be a dog person, but this book had me cracking up My mom has a cat, and I could just imagine the story from her cat s point of view I can t wait to read the book about dogs The author told the story so well that it was easy for me to imagine a cat trying to tell his her story I especially liked the Cat Waldo Henderson tales.
