Anyway, Meankitty thought the book was too watery, with too many aquatic types. She has therefore corrected Kendall's oversights in cover design and plotting with the following cattification:

He'll sacrifice his skin to the chore he hates to spare the wellbing of the woman he loves...

After a terrible accident rocks the foundation of their relationship--her beloved cat, Wino, accidentally rolls in motor oil from his clunker--Gavin Cattidy, leader of the Sentinels who protect pets in Australia, and feline biologist Zoe Munchkin call it quits on their short-lived affair. He can’t come to terms with the "I told you to clean up after your damn oil-leaking muscle car" trust he inadvertently shattered, and being with him is pissing the cat off. Literally. Gavin's shoes and clothes and favorite books and totems made out of kangaroo dung and cherished guitar--all whizzed on by a very angry Wino.

But love is a powerful motivator, and neither fear nor misguided, totally useless "pet wipes" found at some superstore are strong enough to keep them apart, despite the fact that Wino is now on a collision course with everything expensive and breakable on the mantel that can only end badly--for the keepsakes. When Gavin’s illicit consultation with Zoe's most hated foe, Delores Zebnak, News Channel 12 Dog Vet, who also happens to be Gavin's ex-girlfriend, threatens to betray millions of innocents to a ruthless dogs-only adoption campaign, Zoe vows to sacrifice everything--including the keepsakes she loves, like the waving porcelain cat from China and that nice glass vase--to stop Gavin from making the biggest mistake of his life.

Just Bathe The Cat...it's a bad idea. Even if there's motor oil involved.

*This book contains graphic language, blood, lacerations, men learning a valuable lesson about cleaning the garage, hairballs, 12 stitches, and violence. Not suitable for readers under the age of 18, dogs or kittens.


Meankitty has committed to review this novel on Jan. 27. We'll post here. It won't be suitable for any retail sites, all things considered.

I'm pretty sure I had a laugh-induced aneurysm reading that. Would you mind calling me an ambulance while you clean up that oil spill?
