To Buy

Simon Tofield's cat first started out as a little animation on YouTube and has since gotten a massive (like in the millions) following. Hence Simon Tofield was offered a book deal... and the result is Simon's Cat. While not as funny as his animation, this book has some truly laugh out loud moments. This cat is no Garfield, being funnier and above all more British. Simon is able to capture the true essence of cats, in all their self centered and slothful ways. As I've said before, when talking about reviewing Charles Addams' Addams and Evil, reviewing a book of cartoons presents it's own set of problems. But luckily I have an easy out. I present to you, some of the wonderful animations of Simon Tofield... and don't forget to check out his website as well.


I had seen all but the first and last ones before and I gotta say the last one has got to be my favorite. From someone with a cat-I'd say owner but let's face it, no one owns a cat-I agree that Simon does a great job of portraying the cat personality. I have really been wanting the book for a while now. Thanks for the post. :D



Hi. I just found your site and am now a follower!

Yes Briana, the first one is my favorite, being an artist, my cat used to do that to me all the time!

And welcome Cindy! Glad to have you here.
