Description
A completely original and funny new take on cats. Doogie Horner, a writer and illustrator, knows just what it is about cats that so obsesses and delights us--their impenetrable personalities, their self-contained quirkiness, the aura of mystery that makes it seem as if they're always up to something that they don't want us to know about. So he imagines their secret lives for us, in a way that takes the most surprising and whimsical turns.

With full-color illustrations and absurdly funny short stories, Some Very Interesting Cats Perhaps You Weren't Aware Of is a gallery of 100 impossible cat characters. Like the Alien cat, Xort, who reports back to his planet: "Have trained my humans to feed and pet me. They suspect nothing." Or the Mountain Climber cat, Snowball, who is planning a perilous route up the North Curtain to Mt. Bookcase. Or Mystico, the Magician cat--no one could figure out how he sawed a dog in half. (The answer was simple: He didn't like dogs.) And Hjalmar, the Viking cat, whose motto is "Pillage. Tuna. Plunder. Nap."
