Cat Humor: "I"M NOT SORRY: Poems By Cats" by Rosa Silva (International Give-Away!)




About the book
These cats have destroyed curtains, scratched couches, bitten hands, shredded toilet paper… and they are not sorry. Now they decided to celebrate their achievements in these insightful and funny poems written by themselves. 

With titles like “It’s 6 a.m., time to wake up”, “I hate the vet”, “Oops, I did it again”, “Let me in”, and “Red dot, red dot”, this collection of laugh-out-loud poems offers a cat's view on common wacky and exasperating feline behavior. It’s the perfect gift for crazy cat lovers who appreciate hilarious insights into the feline nature.

FROM CAT CHAT WITH CAREN AND CODY:I am not sure if any of you know but today is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day.  After reading "I'm Not Sorry:Poems By Cats" by Rosa Silva, we have decided there should be a new holiday named after this book, "I'M NOT SORRY" DAY!

When Cody has done something particularly bratty or even a little bad, I will look at him after he has been reprimanded and marvel at how he is completely nonplussed that he has just been yelled at. He will either go right back and do what he got in trouble for to begin with, or go on to something else. The bottom line is he is definitely NOT SORRY. Truth be told, I bet most, make that ALL of your kitties, when they do something wrong, aren't sorry either!

When Author Silva extended the offer for me to review this witty book, after I saw the title, I knew it would be right up my alley and I was right! It is the purrfect book for you too!  

The poems are written by various cats with names such as: Mr.Fuzzybottom Stinkypants, The Third The Quatrain Master (I am hoping one of you will be honest enough to admit that YOU had to look up what a "quatrain" was too!!)


One of my favorite poems in this book was written by Petey O'Malley The Most Shameless Cat In The World:

It's 6 a.m., it's time to eat.
It's 9 a.m., it's time for a treat,
It's 11 a.m., it's time for brunch.
It's 2 p.m., it's time for lunch.
It's 4 p.m., it's time for a snack.
It's 6 p.m., I could eat a macaque.
It's 8 p.m., it's time for dinner.
I'm sure this diet will make me thinner.


Ok so I LOL'D AND MOL'D at this one! It is not only a peek into Cody's day, but I am pretty certain it is a peek into the day of one of YOUR cats too! That's what makes  "I'm Not Sorry: Poems By Cats" a delight, the humor is universal. Anyone and everyone who has ever lived with, loved (and sometimes hated) their cat, can relate to this book! Oh and guess what, our cats will readily admit that they sometimes hate us too! (By the way, who else had to look up the word macaque in the poem above? Please tell me you had to also!)

Don't let the size of this book fool you, it might be small, but the content is purr pure genius! It's not easy for these kitties to convey their mischief as poems and they are purrfectly written. Cody and I give this book a resounding 4 PAWS UP! Author Rosa Silva obviously is adept at understanding not only HER kitty muse, but she has a PURRFECT understanding of cats as a whole. Wait til you read the "O Christmas Tree" poem, you will see for yourself!  For More info visit:

  29. Im not sure I fancy eating a macaque, but a macaw sounds much easier to handle! Book sounds great fun, and poems usually sit well with most readers especially fun ones. I hope it does well for her...

    Eric was never sorry. If he did something wrong he gave the look of so what! Flynn on the other hand used to look so worried if he did something he shouldn't have. I just had to pick him up and kiss his darling little face.
