Cleveland Comedian Jim Tews Talks Cats and New Book 'Felines of New York' on MSNBC

Posted By on Wed, Dec 2, 2015 at 3:32 PM

Comedian, cat enthusiast, and Cleveland lover Jim Tews took to MSNBC's "The Book Report" to talk about his new masterpiece, "Felines of New York."

Tews' inspiration for the book started with him photographing friends' cats for a playful spin on the popular series Humans of New York. The idea has since turned into an internet phenomenon. He now pedals all around New York to feature every furry feline possible on his blog. Tews gives the scoop on "Felines of New York" in the video below, and he also even contributed a piece for our annual Comedy Issue, explaining how to teach cats to sit stay and fetch (click here to view the post and be enlightened).
