If your cat is kneading you, that’s not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. If your cat brings you a dead animal, this isn’t a gift. It’s a warning. How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is an offering of cat comics, facts, and instructional guides from the creative wonderland at TheOatmeal.com.
How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You presents fan favorites, such as “Cat vs. Internet,” “How to Pet a Kitty,” and “The Bobcats,” plus 17 brand-new, never-before-seen cat jokes. A pullout poster is included at the back of the book.
Earlier this year, I shared a review of Hyperbole and a Half, a graphic novel based on a blog I loved when I was younger. So when I found How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You in the graphic novel section at my library, I figured… why not? I loved The Oatmeal when I was in college, so I might as well see what this graphic novel was like.
And… it’s fine, I guess.
Is it much more than cute? Not really.
A lot of the comics made me laugh out loud. Some made me cringe a little. Others (like the cats at work) started out cute but went on too long.
This is a quick and entertaining book that would probably make any cat owner smile, but I don’t know if I can really recommend buying it.
Have you read Technically, You Started It? Can you recommend any similar books?
