The conquest of cats
(la conquista de los gatos)

From being adored by the Egyptian pharaohs and being mythical symbols in the Chinese and Japanese cultures to later becoming such big and fluffy parts of our daily lives, cats have always been present in the history of human civilization. But what if everything is part of a master plan developed by these adorable and terrifying creatures? For if there is one specie that is most likely to take over the world and the whole of humanity, that would be cats— that, of course, if they don’t have us under their control already.


“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.”

—Malena Pichot

“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”

—Juan VilloRo

“Really, a genius.”

—Manu Arregui Biziola
