Praise for The Big New Yorker Book of Cats
 
“The Book of Cats comes a year after The Big New Yorker Book of Dogs—a publishing slight that, though it stings, I’ll forgive, as the latest anthology was worth the wait. . . . Two standout articles feature real-life obsessives of ages past who reveal today’s Caturnet devotees—with their GIFs and Tumblrs and hastily aggregated listicles—for what they truly are: amateurs. . . . Eat your heart out, Cute Overload.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“A beautiful hardcover.”—Jenny McCarthy, People
 
“This irresistible anthology of articles, poems, essays, fiction, cartoons, and covers pulled from the New Yorker is a veritable treasure trove for cat lovers. Just dive right in; with stories from the likes of John Updike, Maeve Brennan, Roald Dalhl, and Haruki Murakami interwoven with hilariously wry cartoons, one can’t help but be enthralled. A must-have.”—Modern Cat
 
“A shiny, well-fed tome . . . The anthology embodies the cat’s defining characteristic: its cluster of opposites, rolled together into a giant hairball of cultural attitudes—something, perhaps, at once uncomfortably and assuringly reflective of our own chronically conflicted selves.”—Brain Pickings
 
“This gorgeous book has earned a permanent spot on my coffee table. It is an absolute joy to read and browse through, and I know it will bring me hours and hours of pleasure for years to come. And it makes a purr-fect gift for the special cat lovers in your life.”—The Conscious Cat
 
“[A] sumptuous volume.”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“One need not own cats (or do cats own their owners?) or even be a pet lover to savor this feline-focused offering.”—The Sacramento Bee
 
“[A] fun collection of short stories, articles, humor, poems, and charming color covers from the magazine’s archives . . . [a] high-quality, attractive work.”—Library Journal
 
“Covers, cartoons, authors of pieces both longer and shorter, reflect current views of the feline subject in all its glory. . . . The quality, humor and variety make for another successful New Yorker collection.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“An eminently giftable anthology.”—Publishers Weekly

Linney T. Reynolds says:

Animal Lover???? I personally do not see anything funny or humerous about drowning kittens in a bucket of water or asking neighbors to shoot cats or throwing cats in bonfires….I thought the book was awful especially to a cat lover or to anyone who loves animals….

Scott says:

This book is NOT for people who like cats! The stories in this book are horrible. I read about four picked from topics I thought would be interesting. They were terrible! There were other stories that showed a hatred of cats. What are they doing in a book that is supposed to be in favor of cats? Read the introduction. Can you get through that? That should have been a clue to me as I could not. Yes, some of the cartoons are funny, and it was nice seeing the pictures of the magazine covers that had cats in them. But all that in between! Horrible. There must be a better way to see the cover pages. Is there an interesting story in the book? I do not know as I am unwilling to read another potential – in my experience, 100% – horrible story. I had purchased this as a gift for my wife. She agrees that this book is horrible. We would both give it a no-star but that is not available.
