Whiskerslist The Kitty Classifieds: Book Review & Create-Your-Own Hilarious Listings


WAFFLES:  Um, hi everybuddy. The Boss just got this really cool book. She says I'm not allowed to read it yet. But I think she's pulling my paw.

KATIE: Leg, Waffles. Pulling your LEG. And you're right. I don't want you reading that book.



WAFFLES:  Why not, Boss? Does it have secrets and stuff?

KATIE:  As a matter of fact, yes. Now get your nose out of there. That book is MINE and I don't want you stealing any ideas from it.

Our funnygirl-friend, Angie Bailey, of Catladyland fame just released her newest book, Whiskerslist The Kitty Classifieds. She sent ME (not Waffles) an advance copy so I could purrsonally tell her what I thought of it. But first, let me tell you a little about it.

Whiskerslist is a compilation of over 160 craigslist-style classifieds written by cats for cats. Cats seeking cats, lost toy postings, classes, for sale/trade, list goes on.


Some of my Favorite Whiskerslist Headlines:
  • On-site paper shredders needed.
  • I chew cords for you.
  • Participants needed for timed, "flash mob-style" leg climbing
  • !!CHAT WITH LIVE CATS NOW!!
  • Lot of toy mice for sale. Varying conditions. Must take all.
  • Neutered seeking spayed.
  • Anger management group looking for new members.
  • If you like tuña coladas.


Glogirly says it's one of the most hilarious parodies she's ever seen or read. But *I* say it's much, much more.  In fact I've been studying it, using it as a research tool, as I plan my OWN kitty classified ad.

Now THIS is really cool. You can go to Whiskerslist.com and create your very OWN kitty classified listing. Just enter your headline, a brief description of what/who you are trying to sell/trade, etc... upload a picture and congratulations...you've got a kitty classified.

WAFFLES:  Hey Boss! What kind of ad are you going to write? Are you gonna sell some of your old toys?

KATIE:  Yeah, that's it, Waffles. I'm going to sell some old toys. You know, nothing I'd actually miss or anything.


KATIE:  There we go. Just hit SUBMIT and wait for the rush of emails.


WAFFLES:  Um, Boss???



FROM GLOGIRLY:  You know we LOVE to laugh... and Whiskerslist has us in stitches! It's funny, it's clever and in the moment. It will have you & your kitties dreaming up endless possibilities.

Be SURE to check out Whiskerlist.com to create your own kitty classifieds. It's a super-fun, easy-peasy and giggles all-around.

  5. I'm glad you're supporting our fellow CWA member! Love this book and Angie BUT do not let Waffles get his paws on it! The website is addictive.

    We did our review yesterday and have a giveaway for two copies.

  17. Psst Katie: we would like to place a bid on Waffles. But we don't have any $ and er he would have to live with the doggies cause Socks is contagious. Is that OK? Fenris would love to herd him. ~Fenris & Tuiren

  18. Um, Merci says when the price drops to what she can afford (she doesn't have any green papers), she'd take Waffles. Percy and Cameron are all grown up and independent, so she wouldn't mind a little more responsibility.

  19. How fun! Pierson would like to post... "Fun-loving dog... I mean cat looking for someone to chase... I mean play with."

  20. don't worry Waffles - we don't think Glogirly would actually let Katie sell you....

  21. So fun to read them and post them on her site. I did one with Tubby washing clothes another with Garfield and his dignity. LOL. The Waffles one is too cute. Poor Waffles. Katie always trying to get rid of him. LOL.

  22. Katie, when Glogirly finds out, there will be h*ll to pay! MOL

    The Staff had no idea that Whiskerslist was a play on Craigslist (Which she hadn't heard of either)!!! Some research is needed I think!! ;)

  23. I love Angie and can't wait to read this

    ReplyDelete
  24. Whiskerlist sounds hysterical! Actually, since Angie is so clever and witty, we're sure it is!

    Waffles, we are pretty sure Glogirly and Gloman won't let Katie just sell you...

  25. Katie! you wouldn't would you? Hmm, yeah , I think you would. I looked at the web site yesterday and me and mum thought it was very funny.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Katie , I´m sorry that the BIG pond is between us :(
    Otherwise I would offer you a dollar or two for Waffles :)

  28. Sounds really funny. I do agree with W2 that we have paws, not legs. I read you're ad and I must say I'm not innerested. Well, maybe if you paid ME. Heh heh. The cat who came before me put an ad in. I'm gonna put an ad in looking for another typist soon.

  29. Allie: I've been carefully studying the online whiskerlist ads - you know, to get a feel for the best, most successful wording. Maybe we should confer?
