About the book:
The Internet offers an unprecedented opportunity for cats to become superstar “personalities” with revenue-generating multimedia brands—but only if you know how to cash in.
With How to Make Your Cat an Internet Celebrity, readers can unlock the secrets of grooming your kitty for success, creating a terrific viral video, managing your cat’s burgeoning stardom, and much more. Packed with practical tips and helpful diagrams, this indispensable resource shows how ordinary housecats can follow in the venerable pawprints of the Internet’s brightest stars.
I'm not a cat person. I never have been. Partly because I'm allergic and partly because I've always had dogs. Even though I've not a cat person, I do thoroughly enjoy a good cat meme... I mean, seriously, who doesn't? I'm a Pinterest addict (not in recovery!) and always snicker at the cat funnies that I come across- and boy there are a TON. This awesome book is a mash-up of all that funny stuff you see on the internet with cats, along with some (maybe?) practical advice on how to get your cat celebrity status.
This book can be described in one word: hilarious. It is snarky and imaginative, with some of the silliest pictures I've seen. The topics are amusing, and the notes sprinkled throughout are witty and comical.
It is this mini satire on the whole famous cat phase we're going through and it is well worth a look see! - even to those non-cat people. So spot-on in today's pop culture, this is definitely a book worth checking out. Totally hilarious.
