A note about The Cuddlywumps Chronicles

This blog is written and maintained by Miss Cuddlywumps, a fluffy-tailed calico cat who is both classically educated and familiar with mysteries. She receives creative input from the Real Cats and clerical assistance from She of Little Talent (old SoLT, a.k.a. Roby Sweet). Comments or complaints should be addressed to Miss C rather than to old SoLt (Ms. Sweet). Ms. Sweet accepts no responsibility for Miss C's opinions.

How to Be Grumpy: Lessons from the World’s Leading Expert

Miss Cuddlywumps reviews The Grumpy Guide to Life by Grumpy Cat

The Grumpy Guide to Life is the new self-help book for those really annoying people who are happy all the time and like to plan “fun” activities to irritate others. I am talking about people who own karaoke machines. I am talking about people who organize games at parties. I am talking about people who throw parties. Clearly, they need some lessons in basic grumpiness, and Grumpy Cat is just the one to give it to them.

This book is full of short, simple lessons that even the most dim-witted happy person can understand. For example:

“When opportunity knocks, bolt the door.”


“Every silver lining is part of a larger, darker cloud.”

 Don’t you feel grumpier already? Good.

And just in case Grumpy Cat’s wise words are too difficult for some people to grasp, included on each and every page is a photo of the author herself demonstrating an appropriately grumpy facial expression. This cat’s impressive range of unpleasant looks is reason enough to read the book.

(She of Little Talent thinks Grumpy Cat is adorable and can’t possibly be such a misanthrope, but then old SoLT is an idiot who tries to “look on the bright side” of the black cloud that is her life. Clearly, she needs to re-read the book.)

I have just one more thing to say about this short volume that is sure to become a classic in the literature of grumpiness:
