Inside Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed, writer and comedian Jeremy Greenberg presents a collection of laugh-out-loud letters and photographs that offer a cat’s eye view on common feline vs. human cohabitation conundrums. It’s the perfect gift for crazy cat lovers and anyone who appreciates hilarious (and so true!) insights into cat—and human—nature, including:Your cat sits on your laptop not just for warmth or attention, but to prevent you from interacting with the outside world. After all, isn’t the main reason to have a cat so you don’t have to waste time developing normal human relationships?

If you spent a third of your life licking yourself, you too would occasionally forget to stick your tongue back in your face.

Eating grass has medicinal purposes, and most cats believe grass should be legalized.

The cat feels bad about barfing on your bed…because now it must get to up to go sleep on your clean laundry instead.

My Take!
If I didn’t know the majority of you are pet lovers , and often cat lovers in particular, I would still have to tell you about this amusing new book. My husband and I picked it up as a hostess gift while we were in California in the fall.  I nodded and laughed out loud often while reading this one; especially  when I would come across a universal cat truth, the kind of thing a cat person will recognize as perfectly apt.
For example:

But, have you ever thought that with me you don’t need to jog — I’m happy ignoring you just the way you are.
DearMaster, from Sugar

This is funny but it also reflects a basic understanding pet people have:  Our pets love us unconditionally – even if they seem to be ignoring us. There’s a quality of humor with keen understanding of what makes the relationship between cats and their humans work.    Even the title shows that; what cat steward hasn’t come home to the hairball on the duvet?

I also really loved “Dear Bartender” from Biscuit.  Many of your cat realities are amusingly sketched from your cats point of view.

It’s a terrific gift for the hostess with cats, or the newly cat endowed.
