Item description for The Secret Diary of Adrian Cat by Stuart Macfarlane...
This work is intended for teenagers and adults. "The Secret Diary" is a hilarious account of one-year in the life of Adrian Cat - it contains some very funny sophisticated humor. The secret lives and loves of cats are revealed in this adventure novel, that peeks into a year in the life of the mischievous feline Adrian Cat. Adrian is having trouble keeping his new year's resolutions (especially "I will not be condescending to my humans"), and he's also adjusting to the fact that his humans have a new baby, his best friend needs constant help, and he's in love for the first time with the angelic-seeming Snowball. But Snowball turns out to be less than perfect and tries to lead Adrian into organized crime. She forces him to join the evil cat Killer s gang. After numerous misadventures he realizes that he does not love the beautiful but power-crazed Snowball and really loves the scruffy yet tender alley cat named Gypsy. After Killer s gang runs Gypsy out of town, Adrian is forced to make some strange friends, fight the evil Killer and travel a rough road in order to convince Gypsy of his love.

Great book for any cat lover

Loved the book so much I read it to my cat. Sep 27, 2007
If you like cats you can't fail to love this endearing tale (pun intended). Adrian's adventures are hilarious - every day of his diary a joy to read. Here is his thoughts on how to enjoy life:
Ways To Ensure Nine Joyful Lives.
Be dignified - let dogs perform the tricks.
Sleep incessantly. It is the sole purpose of life.
Be prudent - never chase anything more than half your size.
Scratch wallpaper. It is one of the noblest pursuits.
Nurture patience - postpone all ambitions until your next life.
Chase string. It brings inner peace.
Be proud - you are a member of the family which includes lions, tigers and cheetahs.
Climb curtains. It takes you to a higher spiritual level.
Be inquisitive - discover a thousand places to sleep.
Extremely funny book - a must read for all cat lovers. Sep 14, 2007
I bought this book for my 14 year old daughter but she laughed so much I had to read it myself. It tells of one year in the life of a wise but slightly naive cat Adrian who has great ambitions. But before he finds love and happiness he has to deal with issues of bullying and deception. Along the way he makes some strange friends - a pirate parrot, a very cute baby robin and an injured fox. It's these friends that help him deal with the bullying cat Killer and the vicious dog that lives next door. All of this is done in a hilarious way and a laugh a day is guaranteed. If you like cats you are sure to love this book. If you don't like cats you probably will after reading about Adrian! I thought Adrian's poems really amusing: DesideCata Stroll placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in a long tranquil nap. As far as possible, without being in any way humble, be on good terms with all creatures - with the obvious exception of dogs. Meow your desires loudly and clearly and occasionally listen to others, even your human, for she may be calling you for dinner. Avoid the company of fleas, they are vexations to both spirit and body. Enjoy your achievements - particularly wallpaper lovingly scratched and pieces of string thoroughly chased. Keep interest in your career, there will always be a need for good mousers in the changing fortunes of time. Be yourself; especially do not feign affection - except when you need a warm lap to sleep on. Neither be cynical about the love of cream, for through your charmed and enchanted existence it is as perennial as the grass it comes from. Take kindly the council of the years and rejoice in the fact that you have nine lives. Nurture arrogance of spirit to shield you from sudden misfortune such as getting stuck up a tree. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born out of getting less than twenty hours sleep in a day. Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself and groom yourself frequently. You are a cat of the universe, so much greater than humans and dogs; you have a right to be served. And even though you may sleep through most of it, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. With all its snacks, adventures and peaceful dreams, it is truly a beautiful world. Be content. Continue to be happy.
