If you ve ever owned a cat, or should I say if you ve ever been owned by a cat, then you ll recognise straight away the situations Deric writes about For those who ve never lived with cats this book will still make you laugh out loud Deric s observations of everyday things and experiences are just hilarious.
Cosy anecdotes of life in Huddersfield with Longden, his sight impaired wife, and their eclectic array of felines Caveat lector they have four cats when the book begins and only two by the end Some may consider this a spoiler I consider it a courtesy warning I cried So there.
A highly enjoyable read, but too many cats died.
I m not big on cats but I m sure that even a cat hater couldn t fail to raise a smile at the antics of Thermal co I certainly sniggered snorted very ladylike I know my way through this amusing book.

Are you looking for a funny book Perhaps maybe a hilarious one that will make you cry laughing If you are well I would read this book because it is such a book that when I picked it up it didn t look interesting that was until I read the description bit of the book I looked at it and read the first chapter that was enough to send me in fits balls of laughter One of the funniest books on this earth Deric Longden is my favourite comedy writers if not the best one I will ever read If you are a fan [...]
This books is full of just tales of everyday life of a author who lives with 4 cats and hsi blind wife Aileen Sometimes all that happens in a day is he goes to the garage and the plumber calls but it is all told in such a lovely way that you enjoy listening and laughing As a cat lover I particularly enjoyed this book but I can think of anyone it wouldnt appeal to
In Enough To Make a Cat Laugh Deric Longdon entertains us with tales about his new wife and their cat s It s clear who rules the roost, and it neither Deric or Aileen his wife A gentle memoir about everyday life in Derbyshire but beware this book is seriously funny, and best read in private unless you want some funny looks from the general public
I first encounted this author when I picked up a copy of I m a Stranger Here Myself at a used book store It was great, so I quickly sought out other titles by him As a cat lover myself, his style, enthusiasm love for his felines shines through endearlingly He is also very funny has a nice way with words.
I fell in love The Cat Who Came in from the Cold This book, on the other hand, was a swing and a miss I couldn t keep track of the characters and the story sort of drifted to and fro I m usually okay with a book about nothing, but this one didn t hit the mark for me There is some witty and cute banter between Deric and his cat, that s what I ll take away from this book.
A humorous little book that should appeal to an older readership, but if you have cats you ll probably laugh and there are wry observations of life as you get older, which is the main strength of Deric Longden s writing.
The cardigan was hilarious He is very funny Love his humorous accounts of home life.
So beautifully written, with of an insight into what the author and his wife do as well Some really sad parts which, if you re a pet owner lover, will have you wiping your eye Lovely story.
A non fiction book about the cats in Deric s life There are some definite laugh out loud moments.
Deric s book make me very nostalgic for home, for being around my cats, and for being young again, when I first read his books.Enough to make a cat laugh was a delight.
I adore this mans work I do wish that he would write He is so funny on a par with Bill BrysonHis pathos and humour are brilliant
One of my favorite books Ever.So funny, so warm, so simple and so true.
Very funny Real laugh out loud book and I love the way Longden describes things.Quote Aileen there are a couple of cats in the shower room They want me to flush the toilet for them
Loved this bookI laughed out loud
Another set of tales in the life of Deric, Aileen and their family of cats Amusing as always but also sadness this time Enjoyed it immensely though
