Author Chris Kelly has written a parody of the hit British period drama Downton Abby, substituting the human characters for cats. Taking what amounts to a family melodrama and turning it on its head with self-obsessed cats is a hilarious twist.

The book, filled with sketches and vibrant color images, details the lives of the wealthy earl, his wife, their kittens, the servants, and of course, the Dowager Catness. The book details their silly, frivolous lives with chapter like 'Those Who Have Things Done for Them;' 'A Code of Conduct for Cats' and 'Gentlefolk'. The parallels between the upper class in pre-War Britain and the apparent self-obsessed nature of cats make for some very humorous dialogue in the book. This book is a purrr-fect holiday read for cat lovers and fans of Downton Abbey alike.
