The Cat-phabet

A guide to our furry overlords from A to Z

By Ariana Klepac and Pete Smith


The Cat’s Alphabet takes you on an entertaining journey from the A through to the Z of feline idiosyncrasies.

A is for the Agile cat, capable of leaping four times his height to retrieve the chicken chew he left on top of the cupboard – well, after his seven-hour nap, perhaps. C is for the Critical cat, who regularly leaves constructive ‘reviews’ of less-than-satisfactory meals on the hall carpet. G is for the Grateful cat, who appreciates the new state-of-the-art cat bed but prefers the packaging. H is for the Helpful cat who likes to polish the keyboard with her tail while her human races to meet a deadline. P is for the Punctual cat who jumps on her sleeping human’s face at 5:00 a.m. daily to provide a friendly wake-up service. S is for the Sociable cat who likes to hang out near his human family at mealtimes and clean his private parts.

Cat lovers will laugh their way knowingly through this delightful alphabet of their furry friends’ weird and wonderful ways.
