Ah, life is good. I have a computer, a food bowl, a playmate and a cat. What
else would I need? Oh, How about a book?

Stuffin' the Muffin
Sometimes I'm pretty sure I've woken up in the bizarro world. When mom told me
that she had a book for me to review by Joyce Carol Oates, I was scared. I like
to read, but not that much. And usually her stuff is sort of, uh, weird. I mean,
did you read Zombie? That was wack! Anyway, as it turned out, Come Meet
Muffin is only 32 pages, and had lots of pictures! I love books like that!
And it's about a cat named Muffin who eats strange food and goes outside and gets
lost! I think Joyce Carol has penetrated my mind and re-wrote my life story! But
where's Henrey? Come Meet Muffin! By Joyce Carol Oates, Hardcover; 32
pages, Ecco Press; $18.00
Chi eat yet? No, chew?
Feng Shui for Cats : By Cats, for Cats? First of all, it's not by a cat.
You think I don't know? I know. Second, it's all stupid. I mean, I can't
program a vcr, how the hell am I going to apply the fundementals of Feng Shui
to my living space? And where's Henrey?

Better than Gremlins, Better than ET
Cats: Wild Cats and Pampered Pets is one of the nicer cat books I've seen
in a long time, and I'm not just saying that because the publisher pays for my
dinner. It's cat size (7"w x 51/2" high), and it's basically just very nicely
reproduced paintings of cats with some informational captions and the occasional
cat quotation or poem. There are pictures of lions, kittens and Henrey! Finally!
Here's Henrey! I recommend it highly.
