Tell Me About It
Just what is your cat thinking? As it gazes up at you, are those eyes filled with love and admiration or spite and scorn? From the author of the award-winning 101 Uses of a Dead Kindle and If Dogs Could Swear comes a hilarious insight into the twisted, venal, self-serving psychology of our cutest four-legged sociopaths.

Catology is a psychiatrist's view of your moggy; a brilliant, unforgettable and twisted look at the many bizarre, ridiculous and instantly recognisable scenarios in which cat owners find their beloved pets every day.
My Thoughts
When you own a cat (or rather the cat owns you) and you are clearly not his favourite person, more a practice in attacking than anything else, when you see a book about cats and how they think, you know you have to read it.

Catology is a very quick read, and although the synopsis tells you what it's about, I did think we would get more within the pages.
I did like the images that went with the book, each page was an image of a cat carrying out various activities with a snarky/humorous comment to go with it. I did relate to several of the images, especially ones that relate to maiming/killing owners (a.k.a me)

I was expecting more pages within the book, and more words with less pictures.

Final Verdict
Overall I did like Catology. It was a refreshing change to my recent reads, and I could relate to most aspects of the book.
