It is a commonly known fact among those that travel to the Disc that Death likes catsHonestly the uickest way to get Death angry is to be mean to a catSomehow this doesn't make losing a beloved cat any eaiser but reading this book sure did make me laugh and made me feel a little better Pratchett is very good at thatPratchett aided by some wonderful cartoons by Gray Jolliffe presents a case for real cats Not frou frou cats but real cats You know smelly ones ugly ones ones that would eat dogs if they were biggerBut dogs are better They really are They wag tails They keep you warm at night Cats just try to push you off the bed And why since I'm pausing are dog people friendly to other animals than cat people I and other dog people will take in stray cats But you never ever hear of a cat person taking in a stray dogAs I am writing this I share a house with two real cats and a nice scruffy dog who wants to drag to India Just over a week ago it was three cats and one dogAll three cats wereare real catsThe dog is a real dog tooIt's true that my real cats do not have the run of a garden like Pratchett's cats seem to I don't let them out to murder kill play with cute little birds and mice Unlike some people I live on a trolley route and I have seen what trollies can do to cats It ain't pretty There is also the BIG ENTIRE TOM who controls the neighborhood and even has people scared of him He is real cat who mostly likely is also SatanBut I agree completely with Pratchett Any cat owner who reads this book will be laughing while shouting YES YES EXACTLYIf you own a frou frou cat you will be greatly confused I would advise you to go get a real cat Yes even you Bond villian BTW according to Pratchett at Christmas the British celebrate the birth of James Bond tTHis explains so muchIN this book you will witness the tale of the cat and the flypaper The cat the owner and the neighbor's gerbil tower Though my friend has this story beat He came home to find that his three indoor cats had left a dead and bloody bird in the middle of his bedPratchett also details what breeds of cats we might have had if dogs hadn't existed I take issue with this because I know for a fact that my female cat is a tabby retriever crossed with a pit bull catThe cartoons are great and even present a new and hopoefully successful way to pill a cat

Ok I put my hands up and admit it I'm one of those crazy cat peoplegiven the opportunity I will speak at some length about my cats probably so than about my children their uirks and funny ways how silky their paws are yet still smell strangely of feetI could go on My ambition in fact is to eventually grow into an old cat lady who rarely leaves her cat crammed abode but I would never throw them at peopleTherefore I loved The Unadulterated Cat a fairly short but humorous book it really made me laugh postively guffaw in recognition and appreciation Have marked it down one point however in protest at the suggestion that people should leave their cats behind when they move home some things you just can't joke about

The Unadulterated CatSets out to change all that by helping us to recognise a true unadulterated cat when we see oneFor example real cats have ears that look like they've been trimmed with pinking shears; real cats never wear flea collars or appear o. Very short very fast read but I wouldn't recommend reading it all in one sitting as it gets a bit samey Cat owners and cat lovers will recognise the beast A friend of mine once wondered aloud why there are so many sizes and shapes of dog and yet there is only one basic make of cat whatever it's covered with in terms of fur length colour or indeed presence My response was the same as Pratchett's why try to breed a working animal out of an animal that already knows how to delegate any work to humansThey say the Egyptians hunted with cats and point to pyramid frescoes as proof They apparently have never heard of wishful thinking nor looked at some of the frescoes in Renaissance churches Do they really think Heaven looks like thatAnother minor criticism is that the Campaign for Real Cats sounds suspiciously like Douglas Adams' Campaign for Real Time And the whole book is rather moneyspinner for the Christmas light reading market for my taste
