One Hundred Ways for a Cat to Train Its Human .
12 journalers for this copy...
Cute little book that any cat lover should be able to appreciate!
Released via postal air mail to Goodthinkingmax in Australia as winner of the BCAUS/NZ sweepstakes.
Oh thank you! A gorgeous book. Max and 99 are looking forward to training me. In fact, flicking through some of the content, the kitties may in fact have already read this one, especially page 72:
"Get plenty of sleep during the day so that you can have fun with your human in the early hours of the morning."
Also p. 74: "Lure your human into petting you. Then, when it is happily involved, bite the hand that pets you"
We (goodthinkingmax's cats) are very impressed with some of the recommendations like "Doors should remain half open at all times", "walk over the computer keyboard", "lick the jelly and gravy and leave the rest", "get plenty of sleep during the day so that you can have fun with your human in the early hours of the morning"...
We already do the above things and it's great that this book confirms we are on the right track with our human.
Purrs from Max and 99.
This gorgeous book is off to BC cat Raggles to aid in the education of her human hunnyb.
Meow! Raggles caught this today in eager anticipation. Although her human hunnyb thinks she is already quite well trained (e.g. getting up at 5:30am to help Raggles off the bookcase after she has climbed up the flyscreen to get on the bookcase and then is unable to get down)
hunnyb has read another of Celia Haddon's books (100 Secret Thoughts that Cats Have about Humans: http://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2722648/) which she adored so she's looking forward to reading this one. Thanks goodthinkingmax!
Raggles was delighted with this little gem of a book! She has picked up new tricks, including one which she tried this morning (jumping off the bookcase and knocking several things onto the floor in order for hunnyb to get up and feed her). Thanks for sharing this, goodthinkingmax! In true bookcrossing fashion this will be sent back to NZ for the Convention :)
This book arrived at Sherwood Brisbane Queensland Australia 4.00pm Monday 05 December 2005 for inclusion in the "Box-o'-books" to be sent to NZ for the 2006 Convention in Dunedin 17-19 February... thank you hunnyb!
Hee hee, jawin's cat was the Consultant for this book. His name is "Merlin Monstercat" and he does pretty much whatever he wants...

Merlin removed this from the pile on cackleberry's side of the bed and placed it on mine. I assume that I was meant to read and digest the lessons therein. Monster certainly stared long and hard in my eyes to be sure I read this little book.
Chook was right: I think Monstercat must have co-authored this one. He has certainly made an art form of page 33: 'Enter the litterbox and diiig deep, making sure to scratch the plastic of the tray so as to make an interesting squeaky noise. This works particularly well if the litterbox is in the kitchen. A blizzard of litter thrown through the entrance also gets attention.' Merlin can make the scratchy sound echo through a two storey house; he can spread litter through three rooms without moving from the tray in the laundry, including into the dogs' beds and water dish; and he has perfected the timing of deposits with mealtimes. Ewwwww.
I believe he is now working on the second volume '100 more ways to train your human'. *sigh*

The attached photo shows a view of the Dunedin Botanic Gardens.
I won this book at the Dunedin Convention for having a couple of my releases voted the best themed releases of the convention.
Thanks to the convention committee for a fabulous job - I enjoyed the convention so much!!!
And I see a few other convention attendees appear in the history of this book. Great to see you again, cackleberry and jawin, and really nice to meet you KiwiWonder. Looking forward to seeing you all again at future conventions!
FutureCat trying to be suitably modest, but admitting her themed releases amused even herself
A very cute little book. I'm sure Ming, Saffy and George must have read it already though, because they seem to be experts in applying all of its advice.
Picked this up off the table at the Regent 24 hour booksale post sale Meetup. :o)
Will read it and maybe it can easily be psoted to someone far away......
Just read this book.
Much of the book is very true, having had cats all my life.
They know what they want and how to get it.
I am posting a bookring to someone in Frnace, and its a light book, so I am adding this one with it.
And the person that is getting the book is a cat lover, so it works out well.
Posted to bestfriends on Friday 26 May.
This came as a surprise with a ringbook! I gave up on training my own cats how to behave as after having had cats all my life, I know that they don't listen to me, but I just came back from a visit to my daughter who still has hopes as she has three young kittens, she tries to train to behave.
Now I can read what they
do to train us humans!
Looks as a very funny book. Thanks! I know enough catlovers to pass this on again one day.
Will be sent by mail to a (non BC) friend today, who certainly IS a catlover and who maybe wants to join Bookcrossing herself one day. I thought this would be a nice little book to get acquainted with BC, because it has already traveled quite a bit.
This is Tissy, the eldest (10) and most self-willed of my three cats, hence the basket on the table. She doesn't sleep in it when it's elsewhere!Spoiled!

CAUGHT IN LAMONGERIE CORRÈZE FRANCE
I'm the anonymus finder. Mo is my name. See Bestfriends I registered!
About the book. I had a serious talk with my 4 cats, and we now understand each other much better. LOL. This is the first book since ages I realy laughed out loud! Every little thing in it is SOOO recognizable! A lovely book and a must for catowners. I even realy learned something from it! Loved it.
And also love this bc idea. Yesterday on a party I sneekely put it in a friends bag. See if she finds her way to BC here sometime, someday...
My mum sent me this book from France where she lives - it was given to her by a Dutch friend so think it might have been doing quite a bit of European travelling over the last few weeks. I'm planning on sending it to my friend whose lovely old cat called tarquin had to be put down recently. i'm hoping it might cheer her up rather than make her cry!!
CAUGHT IN BRIGHTON EAST SUSSEX UK
