About This Website

Cat walking fishI've always been a cat-lover and, for most of my life, I've been a cat owner. That's why many, many years ago my attention was drawn to a small book (8" by 10" in size, paper cover, 48 pages) called "Games You Can Play With Your Pussy *And Lots of Other Stuff Cat Owners Should Know." I bought the book. It is one of only a few things that I haven't managed to lose over the course of about 25 years and several household moves.

I recently began to try to get organized and tocat chess "minimize" my life. During this process I came across the book. Since I'm currently unemployed I have a lot of free time, so I decided to put this cute, funny little book up on the web for the enjoyment of others.

Some of the things in the book sound a little cruel. I think the author is/was probably a cat owner, but not necessarily a cat lover! If you are offended by any of the material from the book, I apologize. Just remember, I didn't write it. I only copied it to the web. I don't condone doing anything cruel or painful to any animal. (Cockroaches and mosquitoes aren't animals. You can do whatever you want to them.)

This book was first copyrighted in 1978. I'm pretty sure it still falls under copyright protection, but I doubt very much that you could still buy a copy. In other words, I'm betting that it's "out of print." That doesn't make it okay to put the whole book up on the web, I know. But I'm hoping that it'll make it easy for you to enjoy it without judging me too harshly, and that the copyright owners won't be too angry if they should come across this site. If they ever do, and they want me to remove it, I will.

The book was written by Ira Alterman and illustrated by Marty Riskin. It is copyright 1978 American Publishing Corp., Watertown, MA 02172.
