If your cat is kneading you, that’s not a sign of affection. Your cat is actually checking your internal organs for weakness. If your cat brings you a dead animal, this isn’t a gift. It’s a warning. How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is an offering of cat comics, facts, and instructional guides from the creative wonderland at TheOatmeal.com.
Thanks to The Oatmeal’s wisdom, we are now aware of the signs leading to a cat killing us.
Isn’t that fun? Fortunately, this will not happen to me, because I am not a cat person. I will (probably) never own a cat. But to those who do: beware!
I’m kidding. Cats are adorable creatures (sometimes).
But in this book, they’re not. They have a brain (almost) as developed as a human being and continuously challenge our authority and reason for existing.
Especially these two cats: Bob and Bob. They work alongside fellow human beings, but consider themselves to be the leaders of the world.
Well that was fun. Silly for sure, but quite entertaining. Inside you will find: cat jokes, instructions for making your cat like you enough not to kill you and, in case that doesn’t work, information about recognizing a cat in the process of plotting your murder.
Incidentally, these comics can be found on the author’s website, so take a look if this sounds like a winner for you. I thought it was humourous while still trying to keep a serious tone. I do prefer lovely kitties, but murderous cats work too. Ish.
