A light collection of questions and answers that turns the morose into something more fun. The content is well-researched and perfectly pitched for adventurous younger readers - but still entertaining enough for the adult reader.
Here's the deal: It's normal to be curious about death. But as people grow up, they internalize this idea that wondering about death is "morbid" or "weird". They grow scared, and criticize other people's interest in the topic to keep from having to confront death themselves.Too true!

By far my favourite part of the book is the brilliant and quirky illustrations by Dianné Ruz; it's worth checking out for those alone.

This book didn't change my life, but I learned a few interesting tidbits to bring out at parties. ( )

This was such a good book! I don't read a whole lot of non fiction because to be honest most of the time it can't hold my attention, but this was fabulous! It took such a morbid subject and made it not only interesting but highly entertaining as well. This is definitely a book that I would recommend to others. ( )

Why put Dumb Birds in North America in humor category while this became the winner on science category, how come? I don't see much difference between these two... Except Dumb Birds contains a lot of vulgar language and Why My Cat is more informative, but only comparatively. Yes I don't think it deserves to be the winner.
I would give it a 7 out of 10, it reminds me of What If? by Randall Munroe, with the main topic changed to postmortem changes and corpse preservation. Questions in the book are asked by a bunch of kids (‘Tiny Mortals’, I do like this expression), which results in the overall writing style being somewhat childish. Some may see this as a merit, I've known some parents who read this book with their kids, but for me it's just a huge turnoff. I expected a much more grim book, maybe it was the title that gave me this false impression. Moreover, as someone who went to veterinary school and were always interested in forensic science, much of the information in the book was prior knowledge and didn't come as a surprise.
Nevertheless, the author knows damn well how to capture readers' (especially junior readers') attention. I actually had fun reading it, it just that the feeling of ‘I gain nothing new from this book’ hit me hard when I finished reading it. ( )

Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? has been burning a hole in my audiobook TBR for a while now. I usually save my Audible library backlog books for vacations and was expecting to listen to it while in Greece, but A Promised Land ended up being quite long and I didn’t get to to my audiobook backlog. I’ve been thinking about it since I came back and decided, you know what? I’m going to sneak it in.

Written by mortician extraordinaire Caitlin Doughty, Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? is an honest and informative Q&A about death, dying, mortuary procedure, and other such morbidly lovely things. This particular book is composed of questions that Doughty has been asked by children. Outside of the whole “death” thing, this book is appropriate for children in that way – it was written around questions specifically from children. Definitely up to the parents as to whether or not this is suitable for their child, but other than the grim overall subject matter, Doughty does answer the important questions!

That said, this is not a “children’s book”. I learned something in every chapter, much to the chagrin of my husband who didn’t appreciate the text messages telling him random facts about death and dying (did you know your ashes can be turned into a vinyl record when you die? I didn’t!). I was also very nicely was informed that most people don’t appreciate random facts about death throughout the day.

So to that point I’ll say – Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? is filled with dry humor and information, I cannot emphasize enough that this book talks very directly about things like rigor mortis and the odds of being buried alive. It’s a heavy and somewhat taboo subject made very accessible, but it is certainly not going to be everyone’s cup of tea. If you want to learn more about death as we understand it from a scientific source, but softened enough that it becomes a bit amusing… Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? is perfect for you! If any of those things sound off-putting, this book is not fo you!

Personally, I really enjoyed it. I appreciated Doughty’s dark sense of humor but I also adore being filled with interesting information and Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? has it in spades. The length of the audiobook (about 4.5 hours) is perfect for the actual gravity of the topic, and Doughty did a great job reading it. This will be a niche book, but I intend to pick up more of her work. ( )
