Comments for Wet Cats

Wet CatsWet Cats: 09/25/09

Wet Cats by Mario Garza is a book that collects the best of the "Wet Cats" tagged on Stuff on My Cat. The book is published by Chronicle Books, a local favorite of mine because they seem to specialize in off the wall books (regardless of genre).

Wet Cats I read at a local coffee shop. Someone had left a copy there and being a fan of both the website and the publisher, I put my own book aside to read (look at and giggle at the photos) it.

The cats featured divide into groups: unhappy cats getting a bath in a tub, cats who actually like water playing in the tub, cats coming in from the rain and cats drinking water. If you like cats, it's worth a read. If you don't like cats you'll still probably get a chuckle from the book.

There are currently six books in the series. You can see them here:

As you know, I love cats too so I know I would enjoy this one. I love Stuff on my Cat...so funny! I can relate because I have always put stuff on my cats when they're laying beside me. I had a cat, Misha, several years ago that used to let me put Sweetarts on her head. She wouldn't even shake them off...just left them sitting there. I have pics somewhere, but I get sad looking at them because she ran away =(

I have an award for you at my blog.

My daughter loves putting stuff on Caligula cat. She's so patient with her.

Thank you for the award. I passed it along as part of my Weekly Geeks post.
