The Cat That Changed My Life

50 Cats Talk Candidly About How They Became Who They are

by Bruce Eric Kaplan

Category: Sport, Transport & Leisure / Transport, Nature & Pets
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Ltd
Publication date: 1 April 2004
Number of pages: 112

Bruce Eric Kaplan captures the silly and absurd language of humans and places it in the mouths of cats to produce a hilarious comment on the way we live. As the 50 cats talk about their lives and influences, it turns out that they, in their own feline way, have the same vanities, the same foibles, the same ambitions, and the same excuses as people. In their own words, we hear from such cats as Jelly Bean, who felt hopelessly misunderstood and alienated until she met Dorothy, a cat down the road with the same predisposition to skittishness; Puffin, whose brief fling with a cat named Henry thrust her into the ugly underworld of saltwater taffy addiction; and Evelyn, filled with a renewed sense of possibility when she witnessed a misfit cat named Stinky reinvent himself as Prince Volgar of Budapest. This is a strange and wonderful book.

What the papers say:
"The New York Sun"

In its portrayal of common housecats struggling through existential crises and moments of catharsis, Ý"The Cat That Changed My Life" is hysterical in that way that makes you want to pick up the phone and read along (through gasps for air) to a friend.

Author's Biography:
Bruce Eric Kaplan has contributed more than four hundred cartoons to The New Yorker, many of which were collected in his first book, NO ONE YOU KNOW. He lives in Los Angeles, where he has written for such television shows as SEINFELD and SIX FEET UNDER.
