Celebrated comic artist and graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown's collection of all-new drawings sweetly illustrates the joys of living with a cat. Featured in McSweeney's and on NPR's This American Life, and praised by comic luminaries Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes, Brown's work has always paid tribute to felines as they curl up on couches and purr on the peripheries of his autobiographical stories. Cat Getting Out of a Bag follows his cat Mistyreally, any catas shegoes about her everyday activities and adventures. In a series of drawings, Brown perfectly captures the universal charm of cats in a lovely book sure to please fans and cat lovers of any stripe.


This book was great! Definitely a must read for cat lovers and for cat people.

This made me laugh out loud at the scenarios because I can relate so much with what my cat because they do exactly what the comic stripes are showing or very similar!

Super quick read, there's only dialogue at the beginning of the  book and the rest is mostly just the comic stripes. 

There's not much else to say I don't think. This is a fun read, especially for cat lovers.
