Meet Devil Cat – the most malicious, nasty, bitter and ungrateful of all cats

You will laugh, you will snigger, but most of all you will worry about that look Tiddles gives you as he gorges himself on his gourmet cat food before settling down on your accommodating lap for a rest before dinner.

Wickedly ingenious, Devil Cat is the must-have pet-humour book of the year and as he says in his own words: ‘I am the Spawn of Satan … It’s not that cats are evil, it’s just that we are proud, greedy, lustful, gluttonous, angry and slothful; we kill, we steal, commit adultery and not only covet our neighbour’s house, but defile his flowerbeds.’

Devil Cat is dark humour at its best – a collection of hilarious and outrageous cartoons which will appeal to anyone in touch with their evil side.

Adrian Keefe lives with Barry and Terry – his two cats – in Glasgow (UK) and enjoys Scrabble and cycling, sometimes at the same time. His range of greeting cards sell all over the UK and these and further Devil Cat cartoons can be found on his website:

I thought this book was very funny and it quite appropriately sums up the darker side of a cat’s character. We see the ‘nice’ side but do we know what our cat is thinking? Not what we thought, apparently, going by the wonderfully well-drawn cartoons.

A personal letter from Devil Cat

Greetings from the village of Blackness (real place) near Linlithgow in Scotland. I have been asked to say a few words. I’d much rather take a nap, but a steaming plate of prawns is a powerful bargaining tool. I hope you enjoy my cartoons and if you don’t, you’re either (a) humourless, (b) brainless, or worse, (c) a dog person. Cats are canny and that’s why there are more of them with human pets in Britain than dogs.

My human, Suzy, has a lot to be thankful for in our ‘relationship’. All I receive from her is food, shelter, warmth, TV, computer, plush carpets, plump cushions, a soft bed, a cosy lap and a garden with well-turned soil in its flower-beds. In return I allow her to stroke me occasionally! I think you will agree hers’ is the better end of the deal.

I’m off now; I can smell those juicy prawns. If you’re ever passing through you can pay me a visit (and I do mean pay) especially if you’re in the meat or fish business.

A Cats Prayer

Lead me down all the right paths,
Keep me from fleas, bees, and baths.
Let me in should it storm,
Keep me safe, fed, and warm.
