"Cats. They pee on our clothes, bang on our doors all night (and refuse to come in when we open it for them), and turn Christmas trees into their personal jungle gyms. So what goes through their heads? This book of poems written from the perspective of a destructive house cat attempts to answer these mysteries. It’s the ideal gift for someone with a fuzzy ball of destruction of their own at home."

"perfectly captures the odd, sweet, and sometimes sassy minds of our feline companions."
Tails Magazine

"Poems by cats? Honestly? Yes."I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats' once opened, is as evil as an evil little book can get. It went from desk to desk to desk here at The Post, clawing anyone who's had or known a feline into its silly spell and sucking precious tens of minutes into its hairy vortex.

In four cat-egories - family, work, play, and existence - Francesco Marciuliano (writer of the comic strip "Sally Forth") has given voice to cats' 'every desire, their every conflict, their every epiphany.' Also why they'll put an entire paw in your wine glass when you have a date over."
