About the book

Mr. Waffles Loves Design is a witty book for cat lovers, design lovers, and for anyone who will be charmed by the unlikely combination of the two. The book shows the true nature of what design is all about—enjoyment (and potential scratching posts). Everyday items like a toilet brush, colander, tiered bowls and furniture show that design, functionality and fun can be appreciated by the whole family, including our pets.
