Silly, but quite good fun - if you are owned by a cat you'll recognise many of the scenarios.

Aww, thank you manuma! It arrived today ^__^ The mail indeed cheered me up (am I so bland?), alas (sorry) the booklet less so - but never mind! Baxendale must have his fans somewhere ...
here's my rant:
B.'s cats are obese, deranged and (allegedly) agressive ... and I didn't find them funny. Who would laugh over pets, which just gawk stupidly and are nothing more than household decorations? That's exactly the point: B.s cats never move. They just sit or stand around like dummies and are handled like things. Those cats are neither amiable nor spiteful; they uncomplainingly float with the the (pretty crude) mainstream joking.
Besides; I could cry when I see pictures of cats in microwaves or in laundry machines. I actually know somebody who washed her cat by accident. It's no agreeable death, and it does happen - often by sheer cruelty (e.g. by kids). Sometimes you can read those stories in the paper. Probably also because reality is more perverted than B.'s cartoon, I didn't like it as intended. B. pretends "funny" exaggeration - reality proves: no exaggeration, just bloody facts :/
well, somebody less nitpicky than me might laugh ;) PS: I think these are funny cats. Obese too, but ambitious, confident and good humoured. You want to play and cuddle with them and never have the thought they could be a mere thingy.
