Review Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? Big uestions from Tiny Mortals About Death

Best selling author and mortician Caitlin Doughty answers real uestions from kids about death dead bodies and decompositionEvery day funeral director Caitlin Doughty receives dozens of uestions about death What would happen to an astronaut’s body if it were pushed out of a space shuttle Do people poop when they die Can Grandma have a Viking funeralIn Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs Doughty bl. Death The grim reaper The big nothing The great leveler And so on or no precisely not or still Puh getting philosophical in here so put out all your thoughts Come little kitty cat tasty eyeballs are served No matter if it is a dog cat weasel reptile I am not sure regarding their eating behavior if time and hunger are combined and carrion acceptable for the animal well At least one lives on in his pet except it gets a food poisoning from rotten flesh which would be an unfunny black comedy trope but owner and pet would be at least united in death Who thinks this is already too heavy probably shouldn t read this book I like horror humor and science and this book has everything in it The wit often comes just from the constellations of topics from uestions an adult wouldn t dare to ask So the philosophy that is still in kids and gets lost and with the ages jumps from each side because the uestions may seem trivial but have hidden depths And children aren t as constrained onesided indoctrinated and socially normed as adults so that they still have an open and healthy attitude towards the topic Out of the context of this book but it would make an interesting uestion for the author In space flight the uestion of how to deal with the deceased if there are still any will be a topic too All the ingredients might be too precious to waste them and many of the extraction procedures to get as much out of it as possible might not work well without gravity or lesser gravity than on earth may take to long be too energy expensive or just not economic The book is a great example of how the knowledge of an expert can be broken down to interesting short funny intelligent and catchy pieces and how much death can show the living how do be thankful for each day enjoy each moment be kind to each other yada yada yada boring Carpe diemality The endeavor and motivation of the author to talk about death openly is very important because it weakens faith and makes people realize how short and fragile life is and to probably awaken awareness and mindfulness As already said kids are the perfect breeding ground for healthy normal thinking and talking about death and in this case the old saying Give them to us when they are still young and they belong us forever gets a positive connotation Instead of NIMBY they ask why not the whole family is buried there Instead death has become a taboo especially in Western society where it is avoided to speak about it or to change something about how society has been instrumentalized and normed in any way around a topic that anyone should be interested in because you know A wiki walk can be as refreshing to the mind as a walk through nature in this completely overrated real life outside books
