About the book

Cats are cuddly, furry, purry and loveable. They also happen to be the keepers of their own destiny – and utterly untrainable. So, if you’re going to make it as a cat owner, you’re going to need survival skills:

Reassure yourself: You’ll never have a more loyal companion (as long as you’re feeding it)

Think positively: If the cat claws holes in your curtains, at least it wasn’t your legs.

This mischievous little book will help see you through your years as a cat owner with tongue-in-cheek advice and cheeky illustrations.
