One of the books I just had to try out on Netgalley. I love cats and this one also promised to add a magazine feel to it. The previews I saw on Amazon convinced me this would be a book I would enjoy. And boy, enjoy I did. This was just the book I need in this 17th day of staying inside (and by the time you all read this it will be many more days). I need something to distract me and something to make me laugh.
The book starts with notices to both humans and cats, I have to say I wasn’t a fan of both. Sorry. I am just getting a bit tired of the whole cats bashing humans thing that I see quite often in books with cats as main theme. And there are a few other parts in the book that were a bit cringy and had me rolling my eyes. I get that cats have this whole attitude of boo humans, but still it just wasn’t my thing to read.
The pee thing was a bit awkward, I know this is a magazine for cats, but I was just disgusted by that.
But there was plenty of good in the book that I enjoyed. Like the gossip, what to scratch guide (and also what NOT), various articles by cats, cute photography, and more. I loved the quizzes and other fun games that were added. My favourite article was definitely the one about boxes. Who can resist cute cats in boxes?
But yeah, I had trouble reading it, it may be a combo of the writing (which at points just felt like it tried too hard to be funny) + cats being unnecessarily horrible + headache, it was a shame. It took me quite a bit of time to get this book and I had to motivate myself with some RuPaul to actually get this one read.
