Default Bad Cat: 244 Not-So-Pretty Kitties And Cats Gone Bad

Not since Kliban has there been a cat book this edgy. Edgy as in Bosco, the demonic Siamese with the out-of-focus eyes, razor-sharp fangs, and his own idea of Feng Shui. Or the half-shaved freak named Mr. Fliegel, who looks like a cross between a poodle and a lion. Mr. Fliegel shrugs and says, "Chicks dig me." Or Kato, resplendent in his Three Musketeers outfit: "One for all, blah blah blah . . . now just get me out of this @#%&ing costume!" Or Clark, whose hobby is eating other cats' food. Tina, who somehow always just misses the litter box . . . sucker. And the guilty-looking Clarence, caught with a Barbie doll in flagrante delicto. Clarence's defiant defense: "She was naked when I came in. . . ."

Just as Kliban got us to think about the cat as something far more interesting than an innocuous house pet, and Suzy Becker taught us that cats possess a Buddha-like wisdom (together Cat and All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat have more than 2.6 million copies in print), Jim Edgar reveals yet another facet of the ever-mesmerizing animal. Brooding, deranged, antisocial, these are kitties with attitude and borderline personality problems--ah, but what hilarious fun it is to read about them. All 244 photographed in terrifying full color in their most unflattering moments, with a quote plus vital stats: name, breed, age, and hobby. Get to know them. Then see if you can ever forget them.
Customer Review: I wish I had created this book
I love the silly, sarcastic, even grotesque images and captions in Bad Cat. I laugh so hard I run to the toilet every time I read it and am obliged to stay there for the duration. Then I laugh so hard I'm afraid I will fall off the pot or have an aneurysm. Sorry, I know my description of my reaction is graphic, but this just might happen to you, too. Buy, beg or borrow this book if you can. When is the next one comiing out?
Customer Review: Great gift for a .......
Great gift for a ....... birthday, stocking stuffer, ect. for the cat lover in your life. I didn't have the chance to look through the book and wrapped it up as a gift for sister's birthday as soon as it came in. Well lets just say that when she started reading and showing the pictures in the book at her party, I laughed so hard I got a headache. Well worth the 10 bucks.
