Have you ever wondered what kind of kooky trouble cats would get into on the internet if they could type? (Wait, what? You mean they can’t type? Then how do they write all of those cat blogs, tweets and Facebook status updates? Oh right…“Staff.” Who needs opposable thumbs when you can get an unwitting human to do your bidding?). So yeah, every cat who is anycat has an online presence and legions of adoring fans. =^..^=
And now, as if our internet-savvy cats needed any more inspiration for their online escapades, there’s Whiskerslist: the Kitty Classifieds, a clever book that is sure to become every feline’s favorite. Whiskerslist features 160 craigslist-style classified ads written by cats, for cats. With categories like Personals, For Sale, Help Wanted, Services, Discussion and Gigs, this book delves into the devious feline mind like never before.
Cats will find everything they could possibly want in Whiskerslist, whether they are looking for love (or just some heavy petting), trying to sell their slightly-used-but-still-in good-condition cat toys, hoping to rent out their sink, find a job or score a new nip connection.
Whiskerslist has a few recurring characters that I loved, including Mittens McCullen, opportunistic Attorney at Law, and the smarmy Hector, a Lothario wannabe. Hector starts off being picky about the type of female companion he wants to hook up with, but when that doesn’t work he attempts to seduce pretty much any female cat who will have him. E.G., “I am an 8-year-old gray-and-white mancat who likes whatever you like. You are a thin/fat/purebred/crossbred/stray/one-eyed/three-legged female with or without fleas, mites, ticks, kittens or mange.”
