Hello people! Yoshi here with a review of a cat-related book.
This week we’re looking at Ginger the Gangster Cat by Frank Kusy. We decided to buy this Kindle e book based on nothing more than the picture of the tough cat on the cover and it was worth it. Ginger is an amoral orange cat with a thick cockney accent who scams his way into the home of a Brit couple and their adorable yet wimpy kitten, Sparky. From there the book launches into a series of episodes about Ginger and Sparky’s misadventures. The book was just about as funny as the cover. Urban cat tales were mixed with stories of exotic past lives until the two themes blended at the end. Ginger’s personality of a rough hewn cat with a deeply buried heart of gold played well against the naïve but intelligent Sparky. As a fellow feline, I can’t say that I endorse any of the tactics that Ginger employs to get what he wants but if you’re looking for an entertaining read I highly recommend this book.

Yoshi and Gatsby got interviewed by Truffles the cat at “Melissa’s Mysteries, Mochas and Meows”: http://www.mochasmysteriesmeows.com/2014/02/truffles-interviewsyoshi-gatsby-from.html#comment-form
If you’ve ever wanted to see a cat interview other cats, this is your lucky day! Melissa’s Mysteries, Mochas and Meows is a great blog that concentrates on mystery novels, cats and cat mystery novels. Oddly enough, I never see much about coffee on that blog.
Here are some more goofy feline items up for bid on Ebay:
Ceramic Cat toothbrush holder
Who wouldn’t want their toothbrush sticking out of a cat’s rear end?
“Paws” T Shirt
“We’re gonna need a bigger featherstick!”
“Cat Butt Field Guide” Coin Purse
The Tao of the Cat Drinking Glasses
“Tao of the Cat” drinking glasses. The tao of the cat is to do your thing and leave the kitty alone.
Cat Butt hand soap
Gatsby surfing the web
There are some odd places on the internet. Some of them are feline-centric. My cat Gatsby has a few favorites:
Cats Sleep in Weird Places: We all know that cats can pick odd places to rest but here’s some photographic evidence.
Brides throwing cats: That’s right, its pictures of brides throwing CATS instead of bouquets. Actually its just photoshop magic but it looks funny.
Cats that look like Hitler: I don’t even know what say.
Garfield minus Garfield: The Garfield comic strip with Garfield removed from each episode. The result makes his owner Jon seem like a madman.
My Cat Hates You: Tons of pictures of cats being cats.
Catmoji: This site isn’t that weird but it has a lot of cat pictures. Some of which are very odd.
