Blurb: This clever parody combines two of the Internet's hottest sensations--cats and craigslist. With 160 hilarious classified ads written for cats, by cats, whiskerslist reveals the inner lives of our favorite furry friends like never before. With categories ranging from "Personals" and "Gigs" to "Lost & Found" and "Help Wanted," the varied posts in this entertaining cat community provide an imaginative and entertaining look into what cats are really up to when left alone. A must-have for cat lovers who can't get enough of their quirky feline companions.
My Review: Angie Bailey is the hilarious voice behind the Catladyland blog. She knows cats and their quirky behavior like the back of her hand, so for her first book she's answered the question of what would happen if our cats catnapped our digital devices and created their own version of craigslist. The results are laugh-out-loud funny and frighteningly believable, from looking for hook-ups to selling slightly used Amazon.com boxes and toilet paper rolls to services such as hindquarter cleaning for cats hindered by the cone of shame (dingleberries extra). A couple of my favorites are "driving teacher for hire" (Testimonial: "Patches was patient and never yelled at me. I only hit one squirrel. He was delicious.") and a young cat offering help writing whiskerlists posts (I know I am young, but I've had my own email, Facebook page, blog, twitter, and pinterest accounts since I was 12 weeks old.)
This is an absolute must read for cat lovers everywhere, and make sure you join in the fun yourself and visit the new whiskerslist website to post your own kitty classifieds! We all know cats rule the internet, this book just proves it!
Truffles' Thoughts: Welcome to the inaugural edition of Book Reviews by Truffles! Mommy got this purr-fect book in the mail last week and I may be wrong but I think she tried to hide it from me! She said something about not wanting me to learn any bad habits. Can you believe it??? I'm a blogger now, a cat of the 21st century, and I need to know what's on the cutting edge of kitty culture to share with my readers! So while she was sleeping I snuck out to the couch and pawed through it. I have to admit, I'm shocked at what some kitties are up to out there! Maybe I'm just a little angel, but I would never put provocative pictures of myself online (oops, maybe I would) or invite neighbor cats over to watch me bathe (Mommy, what's Milo's phone number?).
This was an eye-opening read that I really enjoyed...if there's a sequel I would love to be a part of it!
We received a copy of this book from the publisher with the request for a review.
