The Picasso of Pee
By Gwen Cooper
Some cats have accidents on rugs or furniture. This wily cat raises outside-the-litter-box thinking to an art form!
Vashti was a drop-dead gorgeous, snow-white rescue cat whose sweet temper and gentle nature made her irresistible to all. But behind this femme fatales angelic façade lurked a crafty feline mind and a steely determination to retain sole possession of the person she loved most—by any means necessary. Vashti’s challenging, creative spirit would leave its mark on her human’s heart as the years went by—and also on the furniture, clothing, and cherished belongings of the friends and boyfriends she viewed as competition for her mom’s affections. Along the way, Vashti would teach her human mom what true love looks like: rare, beautiful, and more than a little messy.
A riotously funny and ultimately tender exploration of the ineffable bonds between human and feline, “The Picasso of Pee” is the latest entry from the Curl Up with a Cat Tale series—true-life short stories from Gwen Cooper, bestselling author of the smash hit, Homers Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale. Its the purr-fect read for anyone who knows what it means to love a cat unconditionally, and to be loved wholeheartedly in return.
