Keeping The Upper Paw: The Cat’s Guide to Training Your Human

This book began with scraps of paper that were found lying around the house. It is a humorous look at life through the eyes of a cat.

All the cats in the book lived, had their own personalities, which the authors brought out in this hilarious book.

Keeping the Upper Paw is the story of cats teaching kittens on ways to train your human.

From: Picking your human, to brushing, digging in plants, brushing, multi-cat families, and moving. All of the cats in this book were once a part of the family, cohabiting together in the household of, Ms. Moran and Ms. Bishop.

Morris, the elder cat, Beau, his second in command, Kitten a cat who liked to get physical, Poofie, a small gray boy, who dreamed of being an only cat, Champ, the shy one, Mikey the playful boy, Sheba, the only girl, and Little Bit, the baby all lived, played, and trained their humans.

Both Ms. Moran and Ms. Bishop, have described their part in this book as merely the typists.

These felines have it going on. Join these cats as they expound wisdom of how to keep their humans on the right path. From cat boxes to playtime the house cats cover mostly everything, but I can see a sequel in the future with new tricks and tips to keep us humans in line. My cat JJ took note and will probably use some of these methods on her human dad and me. It was well written with a sense of humor and from the cat’s point of view. A recommended read for all cats and humans alike. I give it 5 paws for an entertaining read.
