Dog and Cat do not get along. But when they're forced to share a room, they agree to be on their best behavior...until Dog won't stop sniffing. Cat won't stop primping. Dog won't stop howling. Cat won't stop scratching. And when it comes to the litter-box...sharing is not an option!
What will it take to bring Dog and Cat together? Find out in Chris Gall's comic clash that brings out the best (and worst) in two very different pets.
In a story brimming with sight gags, Gall (Awesome Dawson) mines a Cat and Dog's odd-couple arrangement for laughs. The reluctant roommates meet when their human caretaker, Mr. Button, visits "the animal shelter to pick out a friendly-looking dog" on the same day Mrs. Button purchases a "smart-looking cat." Like mismatched co-eds, the animals partition their shared space with dotted lines. Laidback, sports-loving Dog messily occupies a corner strewn with slices of pizza, while tidy, straight-laced Cat organizes a science lab and bookshelf with military precision. Their rivalry allows for pranks involving litter boxes, hairballs, high-pitched whistles, and catnip. At last they achieve d tente, only to be startled by "a strange howling" that emanates from "the most terrifying creature had ever seen" a human baby. Gall's detailed colored pencil cartoons and the pets' snarky hand-lettered remarks provide punch lines for the deliberately understated text. Dog and Cat's interactions have a decidedly human bent, and their vexed situation will speak equally to young siblings and college freshmen. Ages 3 6.

🐶🐱🐶Hi! This is my review!🐱🐶🐱
I like this book. It’s kinda weird with all the poop 💩 jokes. It has some hard words. But I like it.
