Scary Cat Book...VERY funny but NOT Appropriate for Kids

Yesterday my daughter found a book about cats in Mommy's bookshelf. At first glance I thought, "That's a perfect book for her.  My Aunt will be so happy to see her reading it" (My Aunt is the one who gave it to me for Christmas a few years ago).  I've been really trying to read to her more and what's more fun than dozens of pictures of kitty cats with captions?  I probably should have been tipped off by the front cover:





She was so excited and asked me to read it to her. I got her all snuggled on my lap and started using my fun reading voice but burtst out laughing and had to stop half-way through the first sentance.  This was odd...should I go on? 

I don't really want my 3 year old telling Santa to go to hell so I probably shouldn't put that idea in her head.  But now she heard the word Santa.

"Mommy, what's wrong?" my daughter asked. 

"Nothing," I say.  "Let's try the next page."


Hmm...I don't really want to explain what disembowel means.  Or intenstines for that matter.  Moving on...



Killing spree.  Perfect material for our cozy fireside chat.  By now my daughter is starting to catch on that these kitties aren't cute.  Or nice. 

"I'm scared of that kitty," she says.  I do give it a valiant effort, but in the end, they're all either scary or inappropriate.  Funny, yes.  Good reading for my three year old, not so much.







Munchkin Girl asked if she could tear out the scary pages.  I agreed and it turns out that she does know how to diembowel something.  Now Hubby and I can spend a pleasant evening laughing our at all the adult humor strewn all over our table.

  2. Those are some scary looking cats. Ours our cute and fluffy. Not vampires but then again - maybe. Fluffy has "gifted" me with mice, frogs, snakes, and even a baby skunk! Pppppuuuuuu! We live in the country. Did you know moth balls get rid of snakes and skunks? Good info to have out here.
