By A. Volk #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 22 2012
Format: Paperback
This book is a book about cats. How to tell if your cats is plotting to kill you (start), how to tell if your cat is gay (end), and what Bob the cat would do at the office (middle). The first and last parts are classic Oatmeal gags that remind me of the demotivational posters that you find on the Internet. I really enjoyed those parts, five stars. The middle part about Bob the cat at the office was a little over the top, and reminded me of Dilbert crossed with maybe South Park. Or something way out there. Maybe it's because I don't work in an office any more, but I didn't really enjoy the middle as much, so I'd give it 3 stars. It does have a nice poster at the end of the book, but I do wish the book was a little longer and the jokes were a little more varied.

Overall then, this is a four-star book for me. For Oatmeal fans, it's definitely at least that. For cat lovers, it's also probably at least that. As I said, the whole book is basically a series of cat jokes. I've had a good cat and two psycho cats, which is why I'm not a big cat lover and which is why I probably enjoyed the humor in this book. So if you like cats or Oatmeal, this is probably a safe buy. If you're looking for general humor and don't like Dilbert or cats, then this is probably not the book for you. Even then though, you should probably at least sneak a peak from a friend or something because the first and last parts of this book are very funny!

I got this for my sister as a present. She is 13 and I though it would be a funny book that would relate to our cat. It may say it in the description and I didnt read close enough, but it does have some swear words. Its not super inappropriate but I wouldnt have bought it for her if knew. This book was really fun non the less.

Hillarious...... I couldn't put this book down and read it from cover to cover in less than a day. If you love or have cats, it's a must read.

I read great reviews about this book so I purchased it. Upon seeing the book and starting to read it I really wasn't sure what to think. The More I read the harder I laughed. Having had cats for the better part of 25yrs so many things were so "real" from a hilarious perspective. If you have a cat get this book. It will not disappoint.

This book saved my life!! I had noticed that my cat was acting a bit strange lately - bringing me dead animals, walking between my legs while at the top of the stairs, using my face as a pillow, etc. It was on my mind as of late, as to what was going on with my cat. I was browsing for knitting books, when I noticed this book in the 'suggestions for you' on amazon.com and decided to click it. As soon as I read the title, I knew I had to purchase this book. I am so thankful I did! When it arrived, I immediately went to the section about how to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you. This explained a lot of the strange behaviours my cat was exhibiting. I decided that I better make things right with my cat before I kick the bucket, so I have been making a conscious effort to thwart his murderous tendencies. I did this by studying "How to Pet your Kitty" - also in this book. I also presented my cat an offering of goat flavoured llama, and have given countless paw massages, as well as spoon feeding him fancy feast tuna flavour wet cat food. It seems to have worked for now, because even as I speak my cat is sitting on my lap kneading my belly and .....oh GOD!!! He just dug his claws into my stomach.....he's ripping me open......help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A good selection of single image and cartoon strips. The simple, clear lines of the drawings also evoke the essence of the cat (I am going to give a copy of this book to my brother, an artist, in part because of this). The book is a "quick read", though, as it is only a collection of cartoons, but those who like this sort of thing will love "The Oatmeal's" "How to tell if your cat is plotting to kill you".

After slogging through some fairly heavy material with the last book I read, it's always a treat to read something light and amusing. As a cat person, this book was the perfect choice. Not many humorous books have me laughing out loud, but this one did. If you own cats you'll get the humor. If you don't, it'll only confirm your belief that cats and owners have a really weird relationship.

Author Matthew Inman truly knows his topic and his drawings are as funny as the text. There are so many great cartoons to accompany the captions that it doesn't take long to read the 130 pages. Despite the easy read and full-color pages, this isn't a book for children. The humor is definitely adult and some parents might not approve of the language, or the cynical, cagey attitude of the chapters featuring the Bobcats (two cats who work in an office and endlessly annoy their human colleagues). For humor, creativity, and a great title, I give the book two thumbs up.
