I don't have cats right now, but I grew up with several. This book is scarily accurate. Also hilarious. It would have been worth buying just for the long chapter "Cat vs. Internet," but the handy "Having a Baby vs. Having a Cat" chart is also quite important. "When upset, babies moan like overweight, needy vultures. (vs.) When upset, cats go kill something in the yard and then take a six-hour power nap. Cats handle pain like champs." Very true.
