I Was the Cat by Paul Tobin and Benjamin Dewey

Bad kitty, bad. The main characters are Burma, the evil talking cat; Allison, the blogger/investigative reporter/biographer; and Reggie, Allison's friend/roommate/maybe stripper. 

Burma is a talking cat that has been trying to take over the world since the time of Egypt and now that he's at the end of his 9-lives he wants his memoirs written. Oh and just to be clear he's still trying to take over the world by adding food additives that make people lazy. This evil cat just ruined McD's for me. 

Even in books cats are evil. This book also made no sense as to how a bunch of spies are sent to kill Burma and they all fail. Hello, it's a cat, it's not that hard to kill; if spy movies have shown us anything is that poison, explosions and infiltration work best. 

So, nope can't rally for this story.
