I just need a cat
(solo necesito un gato)
You thought you already knew everything about our adorable furry pets, but did you know that Abraham Lincoln had four cats in the White House? That cats are lactose intolerant? And most importantly, did you know that they come from outer space?
Alberto Montt suffers from acute catophilia. This star cartoonist in Chile has been fascinated by cats for decades. They were the very first animals he drew as a child and he decided to dedicate this book to them to help you determine if you suffer from the same disease as he does (hint: if your profile picture on social networks is your cat's, it's a sure thing). But Alberto also takes the opportunity to tell the ultra-secret story of the invasion of the Earth by cats and he reveals the tricks they found to dominate the human species and force us to buy humor books about felines. In very large quantities.
“I began to need Daily Dose as a filthy junkie... Montt’s addictive books ruined my meetings, my friends were so hooked onthem that they stopped talking and stayed there all in silence. We were only interrupted by our own psychotic laughs.”
“Montt mixes apples and oranges and doesn’t ask us to choose one of them. His books are the unusual space where opposites work together. There, the penguin and the polar bear, coming from opposite polesof the planet, find out how exciting it is to share the same bed”
“Really, a genius.”
