Cat Vs Human: 07/31/15

Cat Vs Human by Yasmine Surovec: These are single or sometimes double panel, quick to the punchline comics about a woman and her cats.

Cat Vs Human by Yasmine Surovec is a collection of the author's cat-themed web comic. These are single or sometimes double panel, quick to the punchline comics about a woman and her cats.

Imagine if you will, a comic based on the "before" scenes of a typical My Cat From Hell episode. So there's lot of bad cat behavior, questionable human behavior and the humorous results when those two intersect.

How she got her cat.

As a life long cat owner, I relate to these situations. Take for instance, how the woman meets one of her cats. She's standing in a shelter looking at all the cats, when one reaches through its cage and pulls on her clothing. Her reaction: "Oh! Hello there!" I ended up adopting my first cat as an adult in a very similar fashion.

And then there's the feeling that the one cat might be lonely. Or maybe there's a stray who needs a good home and you just can't say no. Cats can live together, right?

Sure but it takes work. And there's bound to be some hurt feelings, like this:

Hiss!

My daughter and I both read the book and enjoyed it thoroughly. The author also has a couple children’s books.

Five stars
