Hilarious Cat Book: "Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep" By Rosa Silva Illustrated by Diana Necsulescu (With Give-Away!!!)

Finally a cat book that pokes fun
 at the "darker" side of living with cats!!! 

I knew the second I first read that one of my favorite cat-people, Rosa Silva, was publishing a book, and the second that I read the title,   Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep, that this book would be right up my alley! I was right, it TOTALLY is!


While I am insanely in love with cats, I would be lying if I said that every single moment was all sunshine and roses. Cats rule our homes, they rule our lives. While cuddly and endearing, they can be annoying little "SOBs"!! If you are saying that your cat(s) are perfect, I am calling you out on a BIG. FAT. LIE. 

While I adore my cat, Cody, (and Angel Bobo,  "the one who came before"), there are (and have been) moments that have been beyond exasperating. Moments where I have called my kitties names involving "HBO words". Many of the moments that have been particularly annoying,  have involved trying to sleep when a cat has decided it is time to be AWAKE, because they have other things that they are thinking of. For many cats, and my Angel Bobo, those thoughts usually involve playtime, but Cody's thoughts always involve FOOD. The relentless quest for food. In our case, it is my husband who is the poor "victim" who loses sleep, because he does the morning feedings and because I can pretty much sleep through anything But, even I have my moments where Cody's incessant meowing is on my last nerve, and I will yell at him to "SHUT THE F*CK UP!!"  Not to be deterred, Cody will meow incessantly, jump back and forth across my husband's weary head, cry, knock things over, and more.  He will do anything in his quest to wake my poor husband up.

Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep by Rosa Silva, addresses these moments in a nod-your-head-in-recognition accompanied by belly laughs kind of way, in a style reminiscent of children's books, but in this case, the book is definitely for ADULTS ONLY!!  


FROM THE PUBLISHER:

For all the crazy cat lovers out there, sometimes that crazy could be because your feline friend will not let you get any sleep.

Inspired by, and in the tradition of Cortes and Mansbach’s adults-only bedtime story, Go the F*ck to Sleep, Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep is a funny take on the frustrations of losing sleep because of a feline friend. The struggle is real.

Anyone who is a cat lover knows that the cat rules the roost, and that certainly doesn’t change at bedtime. You might be ready to sleep, but you can bet that kitty is ready for just about anything but some shut-eye. Release your frustrations with a good laugh as you read along with Rosa and her struggle to get Mr. Cat to Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep!

Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep is a funny bedtime book for all the desperate cat parents out there. If you have experienced the nightmare of having a kitty who won’t let you have a good night’s sleep, this is the book for you. It’s the perfect gift for crazy cat lovers who appreciate hilarious insights into the feline nature.


What I love about this book:


It is small in size
and length.  . It is just the pick-me-up needed when you need a laugh, (especially when you are tired from being kept up by your cat!)

It would make a great gift for any cat lover!
 Be it a get-well gift, a "newly-adopted-cat" gift (hehehe), a birthday gift, it would be a gift that would be sure to make the recipient smile.

Each page is written as a rhyme
 and is accompanied by vibrant and darling illustrations by Diana Necsulescu


It is FUN!!
 I think many of us can use some fun in our lives right now and Stop Meowing and Go the F*ck to Sleep By Rosa Silva fits the bill purrfectly.

I learned something new
Knowing author Rosa Silva as I THOUGHT (the operative word being "THOUGHT" that I did!), hearing her even utter a frustrated thought about her beloved Mr.Cat, or utter an objectionable word would be something that I would NEVER expect. I LOVE books with unexpected "gifts" and the "gift" for me, (other than the obvious, that this book totally cracked me up!),  was learning something new about Rosa. It endeared her to me even more!

  2. Thank you Caren for such a wonderful review! I'm really happy that my book made you laugh! My goal when I wrote the book was just that - to make cat lovers have a good laugh because, like you wrote, we all know that sharing our lives with a cat is not just sunshine and roses.

  20. What a hilarious-sounding book, and we're sure someone will come out with one called, "Stop playing/walking all over the bed/scratching in the litter box/clawing at doors/pouncing on toes and go the f*ck to sleep!

  21. What a great book!
    Mes was serenading Mommy and our roommate Pat in the hallway between the bedrooms last night! Pat realized mes wanted to goes downstairs and it was too dark, so he turned on the light for mes! Mes went downstairs, realized that Mommy had turned off my heating bed, so mes comed back upstairs and sat right beside her face, and MEOWED right in her ear! Mommy said "Shut the F** up!". So mes did!

  27. I don't have a cat, but one of my dogs is very cat-like in many ways. He demands to be up and fed at the first sign of movement in the morning (or earlier!) Knows right where to put his cold nose, too.

  28. That book sounds really funny. We used an app on Mommy's phone to color the pictures. It's called Recolor and it was free at the Play Store.

  31. I think we've all said things that are not fit for print when we're feeling sleep deprived.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yup...we can agree wholeheartedly!
    Our kitties have not ever been allowed in the bedrooms...so this might be less of a problem...but they are not creatures who are dumb by any means.

    Several of them have learned that that little round thing on the door is the ticket to gaining entrance...and Minko is the latest to rattle the doorknob at night along with piteous mews about being abandoned...shucks go and take a cuddle with your brofur...or the dog, OK!! Just 'shut the F...up!'

  36. Cats are cats. And we love them.
    Hisia is a sweet girl inside the house. The only moment I feel like "killing" her is when she doesn't want to eat the food that I want her to eat. How come something can be delicious one day and absolutly not edible the next day ???
    Outside is another story. Sometime she is deaf !
    This book sounds hilarious.
