About Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed (2013)
Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed
The cat’s answer to Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe, Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed is a hilarious collection of full-color photos and letters of excuses and suggestions from cats to the people who love them—no matter what bad thing they’ve done!

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.

Review: Sorry I Barfed on Your Bed

Kitties? Check! Kitty pictures? Check! Letters from kitties? Check! Well, heck, what’s not to love?

This is a really sweet idea, the kitty version of Sorry I Pooped in Your Shoe, featuring letters from pets to their owners. They are sort of excuses but, let’s be honest, these are cats and in true feline style the apologies lack a little sincerity. Which captures the cat spirit beautifully!

I love cats (I hope so – I have six rescues!) and I am utterly convinced these are the type of letters I would get if they were forced to write some. The combination of ‘What? I’m so cute!’ photos and ‘Well, yeah yeah, sorry, yada yada (but it’s not really my fault!)’ had me chuckling throughout.

This is a very cute volume, which cat lovers will get a real kick out of. Non-cat lovers will probably like it too but they’ll use it as a weapon to try and show cats are bad! (No……….). I wouldn’t say I found it hilariously funny but it was touching, amusing and entertaining. It’s a great gift book: short, sweet and packed with meaning. Especially for anyone who has ever had their bed barfed on…

Verdict: 4/5
