Description
Back by popular demand, here is the best-selling, maniacally hilarious how-to guide for cat owners, once described by the Village Voice as "the best, funniest, most inspiring" gift book of its day. First published in 1985, this unique volume sold over 50,000 copies in only six months and has been translated into five languages, breaking new ground and paving the way for the worldwide cat humor trend that followed. Author and illustrator Alice M. Brock - -former owner and chef of the world-famous Alice's Restaurant, immortalized both in Arlo Guthrie's song and a film by the same name -- concocted a brisk workout for cat and owner alike. Ideally intended to loosen your cat's muscles and caress its worries away, the book advises you to approach your cat quietly with palms "up and open." Beginning at the rear, work your way around the cat using a "vigorous kneading motion." Then, rub, press, twist, and tug your cat into a state of complete relaxation. We are assured that a well-massaged cat may remain in a state of prolonged calm "for some time." Instructions are accompanied by 27 charming color illustrations, which are sure to inspire a mischievous chuckle in both friends and foes of felines everywhere.
