“Ah! cats are a mysterious kind of folk,” wrote Sir Walter Scott. “There is more passing in their minds than we are aware of.” More than 70 other writers have felt called upon to comment in poetry and prose about cats and their arcane ways. Among those represented in this handsome paperback are T.S. Eliot, Colette, Hemingway, John Keats, D.H. Lawrence, Cotton Mather, Theodore Roosevelt, Adlai Stevenson and P.G. Wodehouse. In addition to illustrations by the authors, there are paintings and drawings by such artists as Da Vinci, Renoir, Wyeth and Chagall. Cat lovers will lap it like a saucer of cream.
