If cats could talk…or type…what would they say? In I Could Pee on This, Francesco Marcuiliano answers that question. The feline poets of his collection offer their witty insights on work, play, and family life. They even tackle such enigmatic topics as love, growing up and growing old, and the purpose of life.
These poems illuminate the life of cats in a way that humans can understand. The author has an uncanny ability to speak volumes using very few words. His rhymes are entertaining and show a combination of wit, attitude, and satire that a reader would expect from a syndicated comic strip writer. This book was on the New York Times bestseller list with good reason. It is a pleasant diversion from the stressful, complicated life of the modern human as we consider the peaceful, playful, and simpler life of the cat.
