Cat Dependent No More: Learning to Live Cat-Free in a Cat-Filled World
Submitter: I am a brand new reference librarian, and I am weeding non-fiction for the first time. The non-circulation of this gem, as well as the frightening, seemingly oiled cat image, caught my attention. At first I thought this was a mis-catalogued humor work; I found it in the self-help 150s, but no, it truly is to be used…for some human need that I cannot imagine. Please note the author’s use of “Dr”.
Holly: This is bizarre! I think it must be satirical. The author’s other works include What Color is Your Kitten?, The Purrsueders, and A Fur, Fur Bitter Thing. The book’s first chapter, which can be read on Google Books, does seem to make fun of the self-help industry, acknowledging that it is lucrative and that you can make a “disorder” out of almost anything. It’s unclear to me if the author really believes in cat co-dependency, or if he just wanted to write a profitable self-help book.
Mary: I might be cat dependent.
