    I didn't really need this book because as the proud owner of five cats, I know full well that the only reason I’m still breathing is because their lack of thumbs makes it impossible for them to open their favorite cans of food. Readers of Matthew Inman’s website The Oatmeal should have a pretty good idea what to expect here. There are lots of very funny comics related to cat behavior well as a chapter filled with The Bobcats, two necktie wearing felines who make the office hell for their I didn't really need this book because as the proud owner of five cats, I know full well that the only reason I’m still breathing is because their lack of thumbs makes it impossible for them to open their favorite cans of food.

The bonus on this one is that the wife and I got to meet Inman at a book signing where he did a Q&A as well as relate several stories about his life that included cats, dogs, horses, bears, frozen gerbils, a fish named Peter Jennings, a house fire and acting friendly towards a neo-Nazi kid just to use his Game Boy.

    "This is the guide I needed to convince my husband against having a cat" - my dearest wife Sharp and 100 percent fact laden humor! Cats are aloof. They own you and NOT the other way round. I am not so afraid of an alien invasion as of cats rising to power. Be ware of the catkind, HUMANS! For all those wannabe cat lovers, this is your bible. Get it read!

    This is a book of non-fiction. I cohabitate with two cats. They are cruel owners, and one of them made a 4 year old girl cry today. He was so proud of himself for doing it that he mrowed all over the living room in a victory lap and made the Boy Human pet him while calling him a good kitty. (He wasn't being a good kitty though.

She knows I'm using the blinkybox and neither one of them was laying on it but that was until they knew I wanted to use it and now here she comes OWW!. Pleas...se... SEND HE--

    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 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. Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google+ | Bloglovin’

    "Unless properly defended, your sandwich becomes MY sandwich !!" These are the thoughts of Almighty Cat Bob!! and so it can be your's cat's too!! or any of your pets for that matter!!! Anyone who has seen a cat in his life (which covers almost everyone on this planet) or known or have it as a pet, should, must and ought to be informed about this book. I saw its title and found myself sticking to it for next few hours. It is the first book for me in which I took more time in laughing at the "Unless properly defended, your sandwich becomes MY sandwich !!"

Anyone who has seen a cat in his life (which covers almost everyone on this planet) or known or have it as a pet, should, must and ought to be informed about this book. I saw its title and found myself sticking to it for next few hours. It is the first book for me in which I took more time in laughing at the humorous content than actually reading it. I've not encountered with many kinds of cats but now I know what's going on in their minds. Who says owls, dolphins, elephants etc. are the smartest animals? This book shamelessly fails our previous assumptions about cats as lovely and cute creatures! Reading the title of this book or this review, if you are thinking about a cat, then you should check it out once. P.S. The cats are never going to stop chasing the laser!! You'll realize that Cats DO NOT want to make it more difficult than it already is.

    3.5 stars This humorous book, composed of cartoons about cats, is sure to make pet lovers smile. The comical cats in the book get up to all kinds of tomfoolery....both at home and - in the case of the two corporate cats called "the Bobs" - at work. To provide a little flavor of the book I'll give some examples of the droll entries. If you're worried that your cat might be plotting to kill you, look out for the following: Your kitty shovels too much litter after pottying....he's practicing for 3.5 stars This humorous book, composed of cartoons about cats, is sure to make pet lovers smile. The comical cats in the book get up to all kinds of tomfoolery....both at home and - in the case of the two corporate cats called "the Bobs" - at work. To provide a little flavor of the book I'll give some examples of the droll entries. If you're worried that your cat might be plotting to kill you, look out for the following: Your kitty shovels too much litter after pottying....he's practicing for burying bodies. Your kitty lays all over your electronics....he's stopping you from communicating with the outside world. In one set of cartoons a tabby that wants more attention meows and rubs against her owner - who's busy working at his computer. When these maneuvers don't work the cat gets more and more creative. Among other things she proceeds to: use a bullhorn, launch herself at the owner's head with a trebuchet, make a party with balloons, cake, and punch, and - as a last straw - scratch up the furniture. THAT finally does the trick. (Ha ha ha) **************************************** The two corporate worker cats, Bob and Bob, are your typical office jokesters. When they want to derail a meeting, for instance, the two Bobs call the boss and say ".....your wife was hit by a meteor.....she's on fire....you need to come to the hospital immeteor-ately." (They're punsters as well!) Bob and Bob normally wear (only) ties but show up in undies on casual Friday. When the CEO says "....[by] casual Friday I meant t-shirts and jeans, one Bob says "I can think of nothing more casual than my enchanting cheetah thong" and the other Bob says "I think he's got man-envy for our incredible taste in underpants." The Bobs also spell out insulting messages with dead flies, bully fellow employees to get their pudding cups and sandwiches, and ruthlessly fire the CEO ("Don't make this harder than it has to be, Jim.") In the cartoon that made me laugh the most the Bobs post a xerox copy of one of their rumps....with an arrow pointing to the butt hole. The message on the picture says: "Our CEO, Mr. Jimmers is a giant Stinky. Ha ha ha." And the cats sign the message "Anonymous (not the Bobs)." The book's a quick light read that would entertain cat owners.... or anyone amused by funny animals. Highly recommended if you need a laugh.

    Half of the book worked for me, the other half...not so much. What worked was stuff like this: What didn't work: The bobcat comic just wasn't that funny to read. It was more "I hope this isn't the rest of the book. I seriously hope something is coming after this instead of this boring comic". And luckily it was just part of the book and then it got fun to read again. Then we have this part and is this suppose to be funny? I just read and though "wtf?"...

    How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You by Matthew Inman, The Oatmeal is such a hilarious book that I sat and giggled the whole way through it. Anyone with cats will understand the craziness in this book. The author is a genius when it comes to putting the cat mind into cartoon form. Awesome work! I borrowed this from the library and going to check for more! Too funny!!

    Did I enjoy the book? Yes. But that's really beside the point. I bought it mostly as a display of support for Oatmeal, who has been providing me free online laughs for years and years now. If you haven't checked out his website, you really should: http://theoatmeal.com/

    This was different from what the title implied. I loved the start. It was funny and it made me miss my cat. I loved it. Then came the Bobcats which I hated! Kinda took the fun away. It seemed like someone was trying too hard, and most of it was just lame. I liked Wednesday, when they fired Frank. Then came other chapters. I enjoyed reading about Tuna which is so true and internet which was so cute and some other parts but the rest didn’t interest me. It kinda disgusted me and was kinda cheap.

    I have cats, so this seemed like an obvious one for me. And the first few cartoons I did find hilarious. But I put it down for a while, and when I picked it back up, it just wasn't tickling my funnybone in the same way. Either I wasn't in the right mood for it, or they led off with the best comics, and it just got progressively less funny from there.

    These days I've been experimenting with some awesomely weird books. Yes, people may think that I'll never grow up, but these books I've read that seem to be for kids, I assure you they're not. Suggestion: if you don't want kids suffering awful traumas or to be potential psychos... ...turn off the TV and give them some Roald Dahl to read. So, this book is not only useful, because it offers some great ideas to know if your cat is plotting to kill you, is also too damn funny.

So, this book is not only useful, because it offers some great ideas to know if your cat is plotting to kill you, is also too damn funny. There are several explanations about cats and their behavior: direction of ears according to each kind of mood, what they love and hate, how they see us. Also some hilarious cartoons about the Bobcats: angry, bossy and selfish working cats that bully everybody in the office. They wear little ties, steal everyone's lunch and hates the “howler monkey”. (I can think of a few people that fit the “howler monkey” kind of guy; yes, quite annoying fellas). It also shows us cats' big battle against the Internet. Big lesson to remember at all times: when they demand attention, you should listen. Your furniture would be grateful. Anyway, this book finishes with what's like to have a baby and to have a cat. Mothers' could think it's a harsh and twisted kind of humor (?) Well, I liked it... All in all, it's a hilarious book that every person with a cat should read. These superb and intelligent creatures that treats dogs and humans as idiots and slaves, respectively, are great companions, especially on rainy afternoons when you're reading an awesome book by the window with a cup of coffee next to you. (Yes, I'm focusing on the nice aspects.) I love animals, and right now, I have a cat. Well, yesterday, this nice feline broke a set of cups that has been in my family for 70 or 80 years. I wanted to leave him with only five lives, but once I saw such a little and innocent face, what could I do? I feel powerless. May 09, 14 * Also on my blog. ** Photo credit: via Memedroid.

    Are You Dead Yet? Then your cat is plotting to kill you. I give you this spoiler because I have four cats in my house, and that means probably not much time left. You should definitely run out and buy this with your holiday gift money (I did!): it may save your life.

Steals their childrens’ toys . . . Interrupts their reading time . . . SUCKS at hide-and-go-seek . . . Can't even bathe without help . . . Or tries to smother them while they sleep . . . I mean SERIOUSLY tries to smother them . . . Somehow cats get away with all that and more. Probably because they are better than us.

    Oh gosh, this was such a funny collection of humorous cartoons, all involving cats and for the majority of the time, I was in stitches. I liked how the book was laid out, with various categories. Some parts such as the cartoons involving the cat out at night was enjoyable. The odd one or two chapters didn't make me laugh so much. It's simple, quick and easy to read. Fun for cat lovers!

    “How to Tell If Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You” by Matthew Inman is a devastating expose on the shocking secret that felines across the world are planning a mass takeover of the planet. Why President Obama or none of the other world leaders have not been talking about this is a mystery especially as cats seem well placed to enact their global attack at a moment’s notice - hell, there’s even one of them in my house! (It’s ok, I’m typing this in the other room, and - I think - he’s asleep.

(It’s ok, I’m typing this in the other room, and - I think - he’s asleep. If you’re reading this then I made it long enough to post this call to arms for humans everywhere) Well, now I think about it, it might also be a book of comedic web-comics about cats. I mean, the author does call himself “The Oatmeal”. If so, then that changes everything. This is no longer a terrifying glimpse into a dystopian future like the Planet of the Cats and more a cheerful and oftentimes hilarious collection of witty and clever comics featuring overweight humans and overweight animals. The book is mostly a collection of cartoon guides such as “6 Ways To Tell If Your Cat Thinks Its a Mountain Lion”, a guide I loved especially as my cat has been displaying no. 6 “Being Overly Vocal - your cat thinks these are terrifying roars of awesomeness”. Also the title guide where one of the points is if your cat dashes about madly for no reason, it is because their ambush failed and they are escaping! There are some comic strips included which are brilliant - The Bobcats are a pair of talkative felines in an office who’re just awful to everyone. After locking everyone into an elevator with them and farting excessively (“the gas chamber”), one of them has a hot sauce drinking contests and runs about the office after necking four bottles and pukes everywhere. The book is really fun especially if you’re a cat owner and genuinely made me laugh many times. I especially loved the description of petting the tummy of a kitty as “like frolicking in the back hair of an angel”! It’s cleverly observed, really funny, and attractively drawn, “How to Tell If Your Cat is Planning to Kill You” by Matthew Inman is highly recommended comics fun for all ages.

    I recently acquired a farm cat which my husband rescued from starvation in literally the middle of a cornfield. His name is Gringer. He spends all day training and plotting to kill us when he isnt walking around begging for tummy rubs from anyone at the farm. He likes to hunt bugs as practice until he is old enough to move on to bigger prey (presumably, us), and he also likes to crawl up into saplings and wait for passerbys* to startle them by mewling loudly, then hopping down from the tree, and I recently acquired a farm cat which my husband rescued from starvation in literally the middle of a cornfield.

    HAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! HA-HA! Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahahahaha!!!!! HA— (Remembers to breathe... *Huff, huff...) PAUSE... HA!

    As I was reading this graphic novel, my cats were watching me. It was hard to tell what their eyes looked like. Just remember cats, I’m the one who feeds you, who buys the food, and who opens the cans. Until you develop thumbs, I think the cans are going to be a bit of a problem. If you have ever owned or currently own a furball of death, this book will crack you up. Totally. Except maybe the sections about the Bobcats which goes on for bit too long.

    I fell for this one the moment I saw the first preview pages on Facebook/Amazon or where was it that I found out about the pre-purchase option of this book. I tore open the Amazon package, sat on the bed, tore out the pull-out poster and started reading it out loud, to myself, out loud, out louder, to myself, out really loud. I laughed so hard :') I can imagine this being a perfect birthday, Christmas or whatever gift for someone.

Rather, I simply write them on a word document to basically have them all the one place, and to have a backup just in case Goodreads vanishes forever (or simply start removing random reviews). Anyway, this book is about cats and anybody who knows and loves cats will appreciate this book because it is clear that the author knows and loves cats, even if it is only for their flaws and their particular personality traits. To be honest, if there is one animal out there that has some outlandish personality traits it is the common house cat. Anybody who has owned a dog and a cat (though you don't ever actually own a cat) knows that the saying 'dogs have masters, cats have staff' is truer than many suspect. This book is basically a collection of cartoons about cats, and those who appreciate cats and the fact that they simply do not give a shit about anything other than themselves will appreciate this book. Mind you, I thought the part of the book where we have two cats working for a corporation, and being, well, basically cats, was actually quite clever, especially when they decided that it would be a good idea to sack the CEO. Me, I'm a cat person, and it is not just their sadistic and self-centred personality that attracts me. Dogs are incredibly self-centred because they simply want attention all of the time. In fact, having a dog around can be a real pain in the neck because they just do not know how to exist without you. Cats: I like cats because not only are they cute and cuddly, they can also pretty much tear you a new one (and I have had scars to prove it). However, the thing that I like the most about cats is that they are independent. All you have to do is to leave a bowl of food out for them, and make sure their kitty litter is clean, and they basically look after themselves.

There’s a bit of insight into cat behaviour, but it’s a bit repetitive and not really that funny.
