I Could Pee on This: And Other Poems by Cats - Francesco Marciuliano Plumbs the depths of the soul, by dealing with such hard-hitting questions as:- Why don't you like my dead mouse?- Why won't you play with me at 3 am?- Why is faucet water so much better than cat dish water?- How could you bring a new kitten into our house?- What do you mean, quit clawing those curtains?They're easier to ask when it's literature.
