You've never met a cat like this

Meet Thor: a pompous, opinionated feline who shares his jaded observations of the people in his household in Kelly Thacker's new humorous novel "I'll Tell You What I Think: Memoir of a Sophisticated Cat."

Left on the doorstep as a newborn, his first order of business is establishing himself as the alpha male of the household. This is no problem with Maggie, the insecure family dog, but trying to convince the master of the family, the ultra-alpha male, proves to be more of a challenge. Thor’s many satirical musings include how moronic canines truly are, the shamefully embarrassing act of using the litter box, and the importance of looking cool at all costs — even when you've gotten stuck on the roof in a raccoon trap, twice. Although he loathes dogs, his impatience with Maggie's insecurities compels him to teach her how to abandon her doubts and embrace life. And with the successful completion of the Maggie project, he plans on spending the rest of his life in total self-absorption. But when the mistress of the house loses a loved one, something inside Thor softens and he feels a cracking of his heart, resulting in a closer look at his own selfishness.

Praise for "I'll Tell You What I Think":

This book is absolutely hysterical, from the very first sentence down to the last. I quickly devoured it in a day, and my 9-year-old twins are currently fighting over who gets to read it next after they read the opening chapter to their friends and they all howled with laughter.

This really is a book for all ages, but don’t be fooled — it is sharp and intelligently written. The voice of Thor the cat (who I always hear in my head as a smug Alec Baldwin) is unlike anything I’ve ever read. He is so acerbic and biting, yet suave and sophisticated at the same time … even while he’s gotten himself caught in a raccoon trap or hops into the washing machine! No cat has ever had a point of view — or a vocabulary — quite like Thor.

But while the stories of his antics are hilariously absurd, this is not just a comedy. There is a real beating heart to this book, as the narrative takes a surprising turn and a softer side to Thor emerges. He learns to see beyond his own self-importance and into the needs of the humans and animals around him. What a beautiful story from start to finish! Do not miss it!!!
