Book:The Cat's Guide to Human Behavior: As told to Xina Marie Uhl ENTER TO WIN!!!

Hi my furiends!  It's Cody! It is my pleasure  to  present to you,  a book FOR CATS about understanding your HUMAN'S behavior! It's about time, isn't it?

There are countless books available for humans to learn about US, but it is super hard for US to get our paws on books that help US to understand THEM! Well, HERE YOU GO!

The Cat's Guide to Human Behavior is the FIRST EVER GUIDEBOOK for CATS!! We now have a source that explains their strange behavior, and who better to explain their behavior, than CATS!

Kitties you can FINALLY understand:

How Humans Groom Themselves
I know many of you kitties out there are bathroom peeping Tom's and will be able to relate to the strange rituals that your humans perform while attempting to keep their fur in place. Not only will you be able to understand their bizarre bathroom rituals, you will learn how to RESPOND to them in ways that only kitties can!

You Can Learn How to:

Chase away a human's annoying romantic partner. (Thankfully this isn't something that I have to contend with but rumor has it that my Grandpa Bobo had to do this rather frequently!
Check out this excerpt!

When humans mate, they tend to live together even when the female is not in heat. Because of this, you may be present for the introduction of a new potential mate for your human.  This can be an unsettling time, since the new person can cause great changes in the den, sometimes for the worse. In general, the introduction of a female to the den is a good thing for both you and the male.The female,  usually worships you as you deserve, offering you tidbits and speaking pleasingly to you.

When your single female brings an unfamiliar male around, however, you may encounter difficulties. The male may disdain your company, fear your hold over the female, or step on you when staggering through the den after a night of feasting and/or coupling. In the event that the male does not show sufficient signs of respect on account of your superiority, you may need to take action. This can be accomplished in various ways. More effective methods include: leaping at him unexpectedly from atop the food box, doors, drapes, or shelves; climbing up his bare leg and scratching whatever dangly bits you encounter along the way; peeing on the windshield of his moveable den; and sinking your razor-sharp fangs into his nose and refusing to release them until his screams of pain become whimpers of terror and he runs off into the night, never to return.

Note: these techniques may also be employed towards unfriendly visitors, mean neighbors, or humans who get on your bad side for specific reasons, or, let’s face it, no reasons whatsoever. will finally learn how to respond to their

What I purrticularly love about this book is not only is it hilarious, it is written in an intelligent form of cat speak! This book was dictated to Xina Marie Uhl by one intelligent kitty named Professor F.L. Uffy. He not only reveals the mysteries of understanding our humans but he does it by using clear and intelligent "catspeak", that  kitties understand!  After all, we aren't babies or DOGS!

Kitties, this is one book that you will want to hide from your humans, but you will want to stash it within a paws length reach for YOU as a handy reference!

Kitty furiends, I know you have a ton of super impawtant things to do during the day, so you will be happy to hear that this is a QUICK read (approx 50 pages), and it also contains some wonderful full-color photos of, what else? CATS!

You will purrticularly LOVE the Frequently Asked Questions section in the back. There you will find answers to pressing questions such as:

How can I get away with counter-surfing?
Why do humans respond to alarm clocks but not to YOU?
Why does my human get upset when I knock plants off of the windowsill?
Just exactly WHERE does my human go when she leaves all day?

And many, many more!
