BAD KITTY IS BACK (AND BADDER THAN EVER!)

when she is forced to take a bath in this hysterical new illustrated how-to for young readers. The following are some items you will need for Kitty’s bath: one bathtub, plenty of water, dry towels, a suit of armor, a letter to your loved ones, clean underwear (because stressful situations can cause “accidents”), an ambulance in your driveway with the engine running, and, oh, yeah, you’ll also need Kitty…but good luck with that! Since its publication in 2005, BAD KITTY has captured the hearts of cat lovers and haters alike. This time Kitty is at her worst in this riotous how-to guide filled with bad smells, cautionary tales of horror, and hopefully by the end…some soap. The funniest of any of Kitty’s adventures, though don’t tell her that.

PREPARING
KITTY’S
BATHDo you remember the last time you tried to give Kitty a bath?BE PREPARED.
The first lesson that all cat owners must learn is that . . .
CATS
HATE
BATHS
For your own safety, please repeat this to yourself four thousand eight hundred ninety-three times.
It’s not that cats don’t like baths. It’s not that cats have a difficult relationship with baths. It’s not that cats chose not to vote for baths in the last election. It’s not that cats would rather choose vanilla over baths.
