Product Description

Product Description

Humorous advice for cats, by cats.

The author "discovered" the feline world's best-kept secret in a file hidden on his mother's computer by her cat, Cleo, and now shares it with humanity for the first time. Topics covered range from avoiding visits to the vet, to the artful display of captured prey, to getting in the way of a human trying to read anything, including this paragraph. Upon publication, Cleo denied authorship and hired a team of lawyers with their claws out, but despite her best efforts, word is spreading with over 75,000 Kindle downloads:

The Cat Manual is hilarious for cat-lovers of all ages.

From the author of Cave Passages and Dark Life.

When I bought this book I thought it was a serious book on living and raising a cat. Turns out it is about raising and living with humans...from a cats perspective!!! Very funny....but so true. My only complaint being that it is was too short. I would have liked a book twice as long. But as it is its a fun read, and if you own a cat, or a cat owns you I guess, you will appreciate this book. Well done

HASH(0xa79c9708) out of 5 stars The Cat Manual? More like The Cat's Meow! Am I right? Jan. 24 2012
By Pedantic Gadfly - Published on Amazon.com

Just like Jane Goodall, Taylor made productive use of his vacation time by embedding with a native species and bringing scientific observation to what would otherwise be a stalkery preoccupation with other people's business.

And, also just like Jane Goodall, Taylor took his observations and made them into a fun and informative e-book affordably priced for even the most cash-strapped cat lover.

If you only ever read one book written from the perspective of a cat giving instructions to other cats on how to be a proper cat it should totally be The Cat Manual.

HASH(0xa79c9954) out of 5 stars Laugh-out-loud funny Jan. 24 2012
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com

Michael Ray Taylor's "The Cat Manual" had me laughing before I could even finish the foreword -- and I'm not even a cat lover.

The author's creative genius shows as he translates Cat, the language known only by the feline type. He must have spent months in the translation of this difficult language, and it had to have been a painstaking task. Anyone who has ever owned a cat can relate to the humor of this short, affordable read.

I hope to see more humor pieces from Mr. Taylor soon.

HASH(0xa79c9918) out of 5 stars Alice thru the Looking Glass??? Feb. 15 2012
By Californian - Published on Amazon.com

Good book so far, but is it possible the author has never heard of Paul Gallico's book "Silent Miaow" which was translated from "cat" in 1964? I'm assuming it is possible, since none of the reviewers seem to have heard of it either. Anyway, to all who enjoy this book, check out the Gallico book. It's wonderful, even if you have to resort to a used copy.

HASH(0xa79c9c0c) out of 5 stars Simply Adorable Jan. 31 2012
By apoem - Published on Amazon.com

We are so grateful that we have someone alive today who not only can translate Cat but who was able to discover the Cat Manual on his mother's computer.

This book just confirms what all of us who have owned cats know already. Cats play games with your mind and they enjoy it. Cats like to make you beg for their attention. They like to make you fetch and carry for them.

This book made me laugh out loud as the author put human feelings and actions to the unexplainable behavior of cats. This isn't a very long read; but it's an enjoyable one.

Well worth the money.
Enjoy.

The book format is very clever. I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Cat Manual. If you're a cat owner, you'll love this book! If you are not but love animals, you will enjoy it too as it's a light-hearted and funny story.
