My husband recently bought a new pair of shoes — and he left the empty shoe box on the kitchen table.

Our cat, Mathilda, has claimed it as her new bed. It has been sitting there for five days now, because we don’t have the heart to take it away from her.

Anyone who lives with cats knows how much they love squeezing themselves into the weirdest possible places — whether it’s a simple shoe box, the bathroom sink, or a casserole dish.

This hilarious book features 100 photos of cats caught in the act. My favorites are the cat who has wedged himself into a wine rack (which is already holding two bottles of wine!), the cat checking out a dresser drawer (a common occurrence in my house), and the silly cat precariously perched in a ceramic bowl (and he doesn’t really fit in it at all).

Inspired by the popular internet meme, this fun book captures the spirit of our quirky and adorable felines.
