Putu the Cat

Fear me, if you dare. Meow.

Putu has been booktagged by The Letterhead - thanks.

How many books does Putu own? Putu does not, in the human sense, own books. Cats have rights to all books and thus Putu owns millions of books, though Putu has refused to have anything to do with selfhelp books.

What is the last book Putu bought? Again, Putu does not 'buy' books in the human sense, though Putu often refers to the process of buying. By Putunomics, Putu has bought every book Putu has read - Putu has given time (a resource with immense value in Putu's case) in exchange for content. But

The last book Putu read was a Catwoman comic. And now the important part of this post,

Five Books that mean a lot to Putu
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll: Cheshire, baby. Think Cheshire
Old Possum's book of Practical Cats by TS Eliot: Putu's superhero alterego is called the Hidden Paw
The Hobbes and Calvin books: The name sequence they are more commonly known by is just a result of human prejucide - and human marketing
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss: A favourite from when Putu the Cat was Putu the Kitten
Sandman #18: A Dream of a Thousand Cats. Part of Dream Country, a work of great vision for a human. It speaks of the forgotten days when cats ruled the world, and humans were puny slaves. Which more than coincides with Putu's worldview, and is the future of this world if Putu has anything to do with it...

Putu is not tagging anyone, as the only thing it is possible for Putu to tag is Putu's tail.

'Alice in Wonderland'. Excellent choice and I salute you, oh noble beast. But think Jabberwocky, not Cheshire.

Excellent choice, Putu! I find myself wishing it (also) had 'Krazy Kat' by George Herriman, the Kat who started it all, at least in comicdom.

Putu does not consider Garfield top five material? Not even Nermal? :-)

I must say Putu is very eclectic.
