How to Be Your Own Cat

14.00

by Professor Oddfellow

From the foreword, by novelist Gary Barwin…

"What is the difference between you and a cat? If you have to ask, you're not a cat. And so this book--agile and quick, mysterious, surprising and sly as any cat--is not for you. It is for the cat that you are, the cat that you can be.

“Of course you want to be your own cat. If you were your cat, you'd know that you'd always wanted to be your cat. But each of the cat's nine lives is lived in nine dimensions and so this book is an introduction to feline physics, a mouser grimoire, a grimalkin guide, a siamese travelogue, a numinous catalogue of the non-Cartesian, a Manx how-to, a tabby joke book of recipes and kitten lore for the aspiring puss or tom, domestic ocelot, jaguar or lynx.

“Yes, perhaps by now it is clear why you want to be your own cat. In this book, the erudite Professor Oddfellow, already always part shimmering and inscrutable cat, explains how. The only question, now, is when?"

Published by Professor Oddfellow (2016). A new copy in perfect condition.

62-page paperback book with black-and-white illustrations and diagrams throughout.
