Book Review... The Rules: A Guide for People Owned by Cats

I might be behind the times, but I must say I have not done as much reading lately as I was a while back. That changed yesterday. We were lounging around yesterday getting our easy on and HH found this book we hadn't heard of. It's called The Rules: A Guide for People Owned by Cats. The author's name is Max, just like mine, but his name is Max Thompson. And another similarity is that he has a blog too.  Some of my pals are following him too.

Anyway, she saw that book while she was on line and she downloaded it to her Kindle... a bargain at 99 cents. And it came really fast, so the boys sat at her feet and she started reading it to all of us.  The points Max T made were really right on the money.  Like the part about not feeding us so much dry food and feeding us straight from the other animals... and that every cat should have a tower .... and that we should have all the toys we want... You catch my drift here.  Max T got it all right.

Pretty soon, HH was chuckling... then she started laughing out loud. We all hope that means that she's taking Max T's advice to heart.  The boys will know if she does, cuz she should start giving them more stinky goodness than they get now and she should ease up on some of the rules around the condo, like waking her up in the middle of the night should be just fine with her if she takes what Max T wrote to heart.  We'll see.

Anyway, I'm recommending this book to you, cuz, even if your bean doesn't take it to heart, it'll make her/him laugh. And there's nothing wrong with our beans being in a good mood. Right?

Enjoy your day, pals. And thanks to Max Thompson for his words of wisdom.

I am embarrassed to admit that I know Max and have been reading his blog for a long time now - and I have never read his book! And since I myself am an author, that is really not right!

Oh this is Max, the Psycho Kitty...but he's not really psycho...he's pretty smart, if you ask us!! We've read his book and we've actually learned a rule or two that we didn't know!!

Oh we need that book too to remind our Mom about the rules. Like more to eat etc. We will save up our green papers. We don't have a kindle. It does sound really good. Take care.
