First of all, the full title of this book is: How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety: And Abstinence, Drugs, Satanism, and Other Dangers That Threaten Their Nine Lives. Easy to see why I had to pick it up and check it out, right?
The publisher’s blurb:
The cats of America are under siege!
Long gone are the good old days when a cat’s biggest worries were mean dogs or a bath. Modern cats must confront satanists, online predators, the possibility of needing to survive in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and countless other threats to their nine lives.
For over four decades, the American Association of Patriots have stood at the vanguard of our country’s defense by helping to prepare our nation’s cat owners for the difficult conversations they dread having with their pets. Written in a simple Q&A format, How to Talk to Your Cat About Gun Safety answers crucial questions such as, “What is the right age to talk to my cat about the proper use of firearms?” and “What are the benefits of my cat living a lifestyle of abstinence?” and especially “Why does my cat need to use the internet? Can’t he just play with yarn like cats used to do?”
Our country—and our cats—stand at a precipice. It will take courage, and it will take hard work, but armed with the knowledge within these pages, we can make our cats—and America—great again!
I love comedy. I love satire. I love irreverently poking at things. So this seemed like it would be a great book to use as a quick read to make me laugh while current events are urging me to scream.
Well, the book was okay. For me, it got a bit repetitive after a bit, like when you start binge-watching YouTube videos and a few hours in you are sick of them, but you have to watch just one more…
If you are an ultra-conservative Christian… well, you probably wouldn’t even pick this book up, so no warnings to you.
If you are a moderate, this book will be amusing, but definitely something you can put down when it’s time to wipe.
If you are a liberal/progressive, this book will be out of the bathroom and on your coffee table, well-thumbed through and a source of laughter.
If you are an ultra-liberal progressive, you will loathe this book and try to arrange a boycott of the publisher and the stores that carry it because animals are being used in an exceedingly inhumane way, being forced to pose with deadly guns and wearing “cute” costumes, all for the sake of amusing humans.
As for me, I have a pamphlet I picked up a couple days ago on my desk right now – an indoor range and firearms training center. Because yeah – I am going to purchase a gun for myself.
And no, I won’t let the cats play with it.
