The book of the Campaign to Save Real Cats.

Not fluffy cute little TV advert cats but real hissing and clawing cats. The sort that not only catch mice, but also disembowel, eat and then bring the skin, and miscellaneous choice inner parts, home, to leave on your pillow as a present.

In the Discworld, Greebo and You are both in their distinctive ways Real Cats.

Achmed I Just Get These Headaches created a book of humorous cat stories.

In 1992 the book was reprinted with revised text.

In 2002 a hardback reprint of the book was released with additional illustrations.

On 3rd November 2022 a new hardback edition was published by Orion Books to tie-in with the release of The Amazing Maurice. This edition features “fifty illustrations and artwork from the creative minds behind the Amazing Maurice film”, replacing Joliffe’s original cartoons (his name doesn’t appear on the cover), as well as a new introduction by Rhianna Pratchett.
