    "Do *not* let your cat listen"

    If you like the audio sample, you'll probably like this book, as it continues in much the same vein. There are plenty of LOL moments... even non-cat people may break a smile. While I listened to it in one sitting, I recommend breaking it into a couple of sessions to keep the effect of the humor fresh.

    The author isn't the best all-time reader, but her dry, dead-pan delivery is perfectly suited to her book.

    (The price is too low to use up a credit... just charge it)

    "Screwtape Letters for Cats"

    (Firstly I will note that I got given the Audible version of book for free, however I have tried to not let that affect my review)

    Much in the same way that CS Lewis "didn't write" the Screwtape Letters, merely collected and wrote down the words of skilled demon Screwtape, Uhl "didn't write" this book, but merely collected and translated the thoughts of her cat. The book is a letter of training, from one cat to another, teaching them the finer points of their human's strange behaviors.

    The book is a lot of fun, although very short - clocking in at 45 minutes as an audiobook. If you have a cat you may know the "ugh, what are you doing?" look they give (mine does at least). This book is written in that tone for most of it, a general "yes, your human will do this. No, I do not know why" type thing. There is advice for avoiding unpleasant things (baths!) too. So nice of the older cats to train the younger ones to yowl and scratch.

    I would probably give this book a 3.5 /5, but the audible system doesn't allow that so 4 stars it is.

    The narrator was fine. She spoke a little quicker than most meaning i actually had to slow down my playback speed a little to pace it with other books, but that was fine. The humour was carried in the inflection, although I found the inflection to be a little too subtle at times. At times pushing the sarcastic or exasperated sound into the reading would have worked better. But still in no way a bad reading.
