Le livre rose

Sometimes you have to ask the question, even if you already know the answer. This is one of those times.

We don’t really need to think about this one.

I snapped up the very last copy of this book from Amazon and, once again, I forgot that the order notifications go through to Cat Daddy’s phone. The conversation that ensued was quite interesting, but this is the abridged version:

Him: “Why are you buying this? You hardly need a book to tell you if he’s gay or not.”

Me: “…”

Him: “And anyway, don’t you already have this book?”

Me: “No, of course I don’t. Why would I buy two of the same book? That would be ridiculous.”

Him: “I’m sure I’ve seen it in the house.”

Me: “You must be thinking of, erm, ahem, my “Poetry for Cats” book which has very similar illustrations.”

[Silence, tumbleweed, crickets]

Anyway, after several weeks of no book, the supplier eventually contacted me to tell me it was out of stock and to refund my money. Then, last week, having been refunded, the book arrived … and, the same day, a friend revealed that she had also bought me a copy.

So now I have two of the same book. Which is ridiculous.

Interestingly, Louis Catorze has not (yet) displayed any of the criteria mentioned in the book. However, I think a reprint is due as the book fails to mention two huge Catorzian pink flags: hanging out with unneutered male cats (Ginger Impinger Dosti, Beefy Tabby Tigger and Donnie, to name but three) and aggressively demanding attention from human males, whether or not they want to give it.

Here he is, scouring the horizon for more men:

“Où sont les hommes?”

  1. The seventeenth of May is the International day against homophobia and transphobia. I do hope Cat Daddy and you commemorated it with Louis in a dignified way.

      1. You don’t have to. As usual, your post is very funny. In the country where I live, we are accustomed to exclaiming: « mais où va-t-elle chercher tout ça? ».

  2. Fortunately, “Is Your Cat Gay?” is still available from Amazon in the states. Do I wonder about my Cats’ sexual orientation? Not particularly. Am I going to buy it to add to my growing collection of Cat books, including classics like “French for Cats,” “Advanced French for Exceptional Cats,” and “I Could Pee on This: Poems by Cats?” Very likely.

    1. Oh gosh, now that I’ve seen it I feel it looks familiar. Is it awful that I actually DON’T KNOW if I’ve seen him before or not? I’m going to have to check my library …
