Ahoy there me mateys! As some of the crew may know, I love me kittens and I
think know they make the best ship friends. I also don’t have kids and never plan to. They get in the way of pillaging. So this title intrigued me. I have seen some of the author’s comics before and so borrowed a copy from a local library.
Sadly, the title was one of the better things about this collection. This was a disjointed mix of one-track jokes. Babies poop and puke. Cats are jerks who begrudgingly deal with humans. Both of those things are true. But the included comics (with a couple exceptions) rarely made me smile at how they portrayed these facts. Plus there seemed to be poor organization of what material was included. Cats were only one topic. Besides babies, there was also commentary about dogs and introverted humans and a few where I missed the point altogether. Even the style of the comics jumped back and forth. Maybe this would have been easier to read in a physical copy but sometimes I was confused if a comic had even ended. Also way too many fart and poop jokes. I guess I was expecting something a tiny bit more clever. I feel these ideas about cats and babies have been dealt with by other illustrators with much better success.
This doesn’t walk the plank only because of the final section of outdoor cat safety and statistics. Arrr!
