Reservoir Cats: True Stories and Cat's Eye Views from Squirt

Welcome to the world of Squirt, a quirky but lovable Somali cat. Squirt is many things – raconteur, warrior, loyal friend, teacher, criminal, idle layabout. He might describe himself as a fearless crusader who takes on evil and adversity and wins – every time. In short he is a host of conflicting personalities, all jostling for space inside one small body.

Reservoir Cats is Squirt’s own story of his life with tales of the people, cats and dogs he loves – and those he doesn’t! Diary extracts, profound philosophies, acute and hilarious observations of the world and some innovative if somewhat strange ideas. As an added bonus he is happy to give advice on a range of subjects regardless of whether we need or even want it.

“If you want to learn the ancient art of Feng Shui just ask a cat.”

Squirt introduces his friends and enemies and takes us along on his exploits and adventures. Join him and his alter ego The Shadow as he plots revenge on the mysterious Box Man, takes the world of commerce by storm, arranges a world class sporting event and discovers something quite offensive on his doorstep.

Reservoir Cats confirms what many cat lovers have only hitherto suspected – that felines are capable of feeling the complete range of ‘human’ emotions, even two conflicting ones at the same time. Should we worry about this? Almost certainly.

“Felt terrible…..I realised with horror that one of her canine teeth was sticking out at a strange angle. Luckily I managed to stifle a snigger.”

To those who know him it is clear that Squirt is convinced that having a pedigree sets him apart from most other cats and bestows him with extraordinary powers. He assumes self importance as his birth right and believes in the superiority of cats, himself in particular.

Funny, revealing and occasionally touching, Reservoir Cats contains the answers to many questions:

Why do cats wear goggles?

What use is a carrier bag?

What is the true definition of ‘catastrophe’?
