Blog of the Grateful Bear

ramblings of a freelance panentheist {"all things are in God, and God is in all things"} . . . musings on Emergent spirituality, powerlifting, LGBTQueer issues, contemplative prayer, mysticism, cats, music, healing, and more. I like my coffee and my existentialism dark-roasted.

BookLog: How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You

My review as posted on Goodreads:

How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill YouHow to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You by Matthew Inman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I do feel like this is the most important book I've read this year, but I was disappointed that it didn't cover the phenomenon of cats stealing computer thumb drives. I've caught my cat Guy, who is an anarchist, in the act of stealing a thumb drive, after I had "lost" two of them. I've asked Guy repeatedly about the missing drives but all he does is meow that when the revolution comes, all cats will have thumbs, and they will need thumb drives. Other than this glaring omission, the book contained very useful information about the warning signs to heed when living with cats, and the poster was a nice addition to the text.

On Reading Poetry

A book of poetry is best read
outdoors, surrounded by the beauty
of nature. If it's late at night
and too dark to read outside,
you may read your book
in the presence of a cat.
