I Could Pee on This and Other Poems by Cats by Francesco Marciuliano
The author claims that cats received a publishing contract, and wrote these poems to express their thoughts, desires, and their moments of epiphany. Humans can finally understand why cats do the things they do, as they reveal that they see shredded curtains as art. Why do humans buy china when it breaks so easily? (As an owner who lost an entire china cabinet, I can understand that poem.) And, your cat is only counting every sheet of toilet paper when it pulls off the entire roll.
My favorite poem in the entire book is one that my cat sitter would understand. It's called, "I lick your nose."
"I lick your nose
I lick your nose again
I drag my claws down your eyelids
Oh, you're up? Feed me."
Marciuliano's book is filled with enchanting, funny poems, and wonderful photos of cats. Looking for the perfect gift for the cat lover? Try I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats.

(And, just because I can, and this is my blog - a picture of John & Talia Sherer's cat, Marcie. Marcie and I may be sharing a room this week.)
