The Unadulterated Cat is becoming an endangered species as more and more of us settle for those boring mass-produced cats the ad-men sell us - the pussies that purr into their gold-plated food bowls on the telly. But the Campaign for Real Cats sets out to change all that by helping us to recognise a true, unadulterated cat when we see one. For example: real cats have ears that look like they've been trimmed with pinking shears; real cats never wear flea collars ...or appear on Christmas cards ...or chase anything with a bell in it; real cats do eat quiche. And giblets. And butter. And anything else left on the table, if they think they can get away with it. Real cats can hear a fridge door opening two rooms away ...

5.0 The Unadulterated Cat - Terry Pratchett,Gray Jolliffe

4.0 The Unadulterated Cat
I've been in a funk the past few days. One of my contract jobs came to an abrupt end this week. It's one of those things that happen that have nothing to do with the job or the person doing it (thank god). A board somewhere off in the distance made an accounting decision. So for the foreseeabl...

3.5 The Unadulterated Cat by Terry Pratchett
This wasn’t brilliant, but it was a fun read. It’s basically just Terry Pratchett telling stories about cats and describing what a Real cat is like. There’s also some speculation about Schrödinger cats and what dog-replacement cat breeds might be like (that is, if cats had been bred in the same wa...

3.0 The Unadulterated Cat
Kind of an odd book until you really think about it. Terry Pratchett is a master of humour but this book lacks it, somewhat. Maybe not actual humour itself, but the amount of it you find elsewhere.I dislike cats though not enough to do anything about it but even I can see their wonderful attributes ...
