Soggy Moggy + 2.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water along comes another Stuff on my cat book and this time they’re wet and have a lot less stuff on them.  Unhappy wet cats… that’s what this book is about.  Or maybe there’s a deeper meaning behind this book… nope I can’t think of a deeper meaning. It’s simply a book full of soggy moggy’s.

Sex kittens: Single cat seeking same.  Personal adds for cats!!!  Yep as hard as it is to believe this book is full of… ummmm… personal adds… for cats.  Those of you who know the book “They call me naughty Lola”*, might appreciate this book… except of course this book is fiction (I think it’s fiction) and it’s about cats.  There’s a gay and lesbian section as well (keeps everyone happy).  People sit down and make this stuff up… and other people like it.  This is not the first copy of this book that I have purchased… sad, but true.  

Life according to Maude.  WHY. WHY. WHY.  …sort of speechless here.  I get it that people like cats.  I get it that people like the idea of humour and cats.  But this book is just weird.  Maybe it’s me.  Maybe I’m the only person in the world who doesn’t get the whole concept of a cat dressed up and then photoshoped (I hope they’re photoshoped) with added captions.  I think this is just that little bit strange.  

So 3 humourous (?) cat books.  They’re not for ebay.  Humour doesn’t sell that well on ebay and cat books even less so.  These are the sort of books you pick up and laugh at and then impulse buy… maybe that’s a little bit blunt, and I’m sorry if that offends any lovers of funny (or wet)(or both) cat books, but this is my thinking on the subject.  So these books are bound for Clunes Booktown where I will once again be having a stall (I will write more about this in the next few weeks), where people can pick up these books, giggle (from past experience, this is what happens) and then hopefully be tempted to hand over some money… although that didn’t seem to happen last time… mmmmm.

* Highly recommend They call me naughty Lola.


  1. That Maude character looks spookily like a next-door neighbour I once had. I wonder if they're related.

    Julie, if that is the neighbour I am thinking of, then I suspect 'catnip' was involved. Or a nip of something else.

  3. I also think i know who Julie is talking about. But it's a bit hard to tell as the cat is standing up... not falling over.
