REVIEW: Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed Again by Jeremy Greenberg
From the author who brought you Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe and Sorry I Slept on Your Face comes a new collection of hilarious letters from sassy kitties to the humans who love them, paired with adorable cat photos.
Tess wants you to know that she intends to continue throwing up freely as long as the new baby gets to—fair is fair. Ovid would like to inform you that he’s giving up one of his nine lives in order to avoid a visit to the vet—he’ll miss you and knows you understand. And Quinn assures you that she’ll protect you from whatever it is that’s rolled under the table with all the righteous fury in her little body—even if only turns out to be a dropped olive.
Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed Again is full of funny letters and heartwarming photos—a perfect gift for cat lovers.
Dear Mr. Greenberg,
If only humans spoke “meow.” Alas, we’re too stupid so our cats must write us letters. Cats do have a sense of humor! And can be outraged by the slings and arrows of life – aka the human who lets her dog poop on the yard and doesn’t clean it up. So gross. . .
Yet as much as it pains me to say this, some sweet kitties are just not the brightest bulbs in the display. For instance Lancaster and the light bulb. I’m just not sure he realizes the light bulb won’t be giving him any advice in reply to the letter he writes it.
Then there is “Sorry, not sorry” from some. Or “Oh, how I suffer” from others. What kitties have to put up with from us.
I’m impressed with the candid, from the hip, photo of the mysterious Catsquatch. Seriously – do you know how much the National Enquirer would pay for this?
And all cat slaves have had a (King) Smuggly at one point who is annoyed to be disturbed yet also willing to issue orders for what he wants for din-din. Most of us have also had a cat with weight control issues (notice I didn’t use derogatory words to describe this size cat). But from now on, I will think of mine as a long haired Sumo Kitty.
Seriously I enjoyed both the adorable photographs and the “letters” that cats would no doubt write (It’s too bad they don’t have opposable thumbs) to express their feelings about issues of importance to all felinity. Sigh, if only we spoke “cat.” B
