With the scandalous success of 101 Uses for a Dead Cat, it was only a matter of time until some felinophile clawed back. This counterattack, like the book that triggered it, is made up of cartoons. But they are not well drawn. There is not even any credit for the artist; Lief is a book packager. Some of the uses to which these fat cats have put human bodies (or pieces thereof): An arm is a baseball bat; a tongue licks postage stamps; teeth serve as a can opener; buttocks are a pincushion. Are you laughing? The cat haters, in this escalating confrontation, are still out in front by a whisker. (Wallaby, $3.95)
