I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats by Francesco Marciuliano

Animal lovers will laugh out loud at the quirkiness of their feline friends with these insightful and curious poems from the singular minds of funny cats. In this hilarious, bestselling book of tongue-in-cheek poetry.

The author of the internationally syndicated comic strip Sally Forth helps cats unlock their creative potential and explain their odd behavior to ignorant humans. With titles like “Who Is That on Your Lap?,” “This Is My Chair,” “Kneel Before Me,” “Nudge,” and “Some of My Best Friends Are Dogs,” the poems collected in I Could Pee on This perfectly capture the inner workings of the cat psyche. With photos of the cat “authors” throughout, this whimsical animal book reveals kitties at their wackiest, and most exasperating (but always lovable).

I love cats so when I saw this series I decided to buy all the books.  This is the first in the series and I loved it! It’s a very short read, but every poem is either funny or makes you think “yes! my cat does that!” And if you’ve never had a cat, this book will give you an idea of what having one is like. It’s definitely NOT like having a dog!

There are photos of various cats throughout the book, and of course they are all adorable!

BTW: I read some of the reviews for the book and saw one where the person gave it a 1* because they thought there was “foul language” in the book, and needs an “Adults Only” label. The only words I remember,  that someone might think would fall under “foul language” was pee, used once (which is in the title!!) and “sex” was used once.

There are four cat-egories in the book: Family, Work, Play, and Existence.
The author Francesco Marciuliano is the writer of the comic strip Sally Forth.

  1. Looks like a perfect book for cat lovers! I’m a dog person myself but I can see how kitties could make you a fan! Happy reading week!

    • I’m a lifelong dog lover but have always liked and had cats also, since I was a kid. When my son brought Jaspurr home when she was abandoned after being born, I had to bottle feed her every 3 hours and got so attached to her that I couldn’t give her to someone else. That’s when my like for cats turned to love ♥

  2. OMG! This sounds like a fabulous book!

  3. We have a copy of this one and it always makes me laugh. It’s so accurately cat-ish and they are definitely different from having a dog! That’s crazy about the review for the foul language. That’s just bizarre.

    • I agree that it’s cat accurate, and nothing like dogs!

      I was shocked someone thought it had foul language! I’ve heard worse words than that watching commercials!

  4. Foul language in a book about cats?! Seriously, people should just relax.

    I haven’t had cats since i was very young due to allergies in the family, but they are definitely their own beings, independent, and so different from dogs.
