Book Description

Nov. 1 2008
RECOVERING litter addicts Moxie and Cooper guide you through nine steps to leaving litter behind. Combining a funny, visually stunning book with an utterly practical guide, Kick Litter features two photogenic cats (and the big guy who feeds them) taking their message of recovery from litter addiction to the masses. Conceived and written by Hollywood web designer (and reluctant cat whisperer) Perre DiCarlo and lushly designed and packaged by the prestigious San Francisco firm Chen Design Associates, Kick Litter is a gorgeous little gift book for comedy and cat lovers alike.

BONUS: KiCK LiTTER features a dust jacket that folds open into a huge poster, suitable for hanging. Side 1 of the poster shows all 9-Steps to recovery, fully illustrated. The flip side provides extra tips for post training.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!!! Dec 5 2008
By Brandy Buckminster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My friend bought me this book, against a number of protests from me*... and it sat on my coffee table for a week before I even opened it. Then I finally read and it's not only hilarious and incredibly addictive... but it's so easy I found myself starting the process within minutes of opening the cover. My cat Jumblee is 14 years old and she had NO problem. She investigated the toilet obsessively for three hours after we started, and thereafter for cute little sessions several times a day. She LOVES it. It was like she was unconsciously wishing she could use the toilet her whole life and we finally put the idea in her head and now she's practically human.

One thing: the calendar is amazing, but if you post it in your bathroom, it may start to crease or wrinkle a little from shower steam after a while. I would put it on your fridge. It's fun to look at anyway --

*First I resisted because i thought it was unrealistic. Then I resisted because I heard some incorrect information about the environmental impact of toilet-trained cats -- some bloggers were saying that cat doodoo in the toilet puts toxins in the water system that wouldn't otherwise be there...but there't a HUGE difference between flushed *old* doodoo, that's been exposed to the air (bad idea -- but almost everyone with a litterbox does this!) vs. CATS DOING IT IN THE TOILET which is awesome and much more environmentally sound than putting toxic doodoo in our landfills!!! CAT OWNERS ARISE AND AWAKE! This is our next enlightenment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Humor Dec 4 2008
By Beatrice Baiyul - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kick Litter is a deceptively simple book. What starts out as a joke book -- something you might buy in a novelty store -- instantly becomes something much more. The title tells us the main premise, which is that cats have to kick the litter habit ... and this book absolutely fulfills its promise of giving us the complete method for toilet training any cat...

But immediately we recognize that DiCarlo has something else for us. A pair of seductive characters that remind us very cleverly, and charmingly, of the conflicting tendencies in human addictions. If you don't have cats, you'll wish you did. If you do have cats -- well, don't read this book around them; they'll see it in your face that you wish you had *these* cats. The language and the illustrations are part of the addiction, I think ... A.A. Milne comes to mind.

This isn't really a book about animals though, it's a marvellous little poem of words and image. Perhaps it would be too much to say that it's a microcosm of post-humanist philosophy. Ok, yeah, that's too much. But I predict that like Pooh, but maybe in a more kitschy way, "Kick Litter" will sprout a number of imitators, and eventually a fondness for spin-offs that find the stuff of life in these admirable and noble little self-help characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny book Nov. 30 2008
By Dr Bruce Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Really funny book that I couldn't put down. I got it for a gift and of course read it before I wrapped it. Got book within a week even though Amazon website said 4-7 weeks?? I really liked all of the innuendos the cats make through out the book. The two cats have diametric personalities that are hilarious. OK artwork. I like the dust cover/poster idea for the book. Definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good yucks, and no more yuck! Dec 10 2008
By Luke Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I thought this book was hilarious! It's a great-looking, entertaining, anthropomorphic romp that just happens to provide the blueprint for toilet training cats, and saving tons of money on litter and cleaning! The cover looks like Pink Panther but inside are photos of two real cats Cooper and Moxie who narrate the story like they're
really struggling with their "addiction to litter."

I bought one for my Grandmother-in-law, and she loved it, too. She's kicking herself for not helping her cats "kick litter" sooner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment! May 21 2013
By Lastredwitch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know this can be done because we had a mamma kitty teach her kittens to use a child's potty when I was a child - in the morning they'd be lined up to take their turn (have witnesses too). I've had two cats over the years choose to use it on their own (after their drinks of course!).. I haven't trained my current cats because I have only one bathroom and I'm getting old. Well worth the purchase! Everyone who comes over reads it and loves it. Great conversation starter of an offbeat subject. GOTTA SMILE! Only one thing to add:- should be common sense for all homes with cats,dogs,kids - Never, Ever use any cleaner you put in tank or stick/hang in bowl! Just use cleanser and/or bleach: scrub, wipe and rinse very well! and all will be safe, healthy, happy and less littered ever after.
