5.0 out of 5 stars Super book for all cat lovers 16 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a charming collection of anecdotes about the famous and sometimes notorious celebrities who have been owned by cats.

I've always thought of the cat as essentially appealing to females and effeminate poets. This book changed my perception of people as diverse as Lenin, Pope Benedict, Frank Zappa and Ernest Hemmingway, all of whom were or are ardent cat lovers.

The story of Thomas Hardy's heart is absolute tragi-comedy, while the tale of Mrs Chippy made me feel cross with Ernest Shackleton

With beautiful illustrations and photographs, this is a great little book to keep in your bag or beside the bed, to dip into and delve into the lives of famous cat lovers. A lovely gift too. Any aurilophile would love it.

I found this a fascinating way of learning a bit more about a whole range of famous people through their cats. It was well written and witty with great pictures too. I would recommend it to any cat lovers and those interested in learning a bit more about some very well known figures. Highly recommended.

Christina Hamilton's "Celebrity Cat Names," which I bought on a lark, is a total surprise, a delight from beginning to end. From Pope Benedict to Kim Kardashian, Hamilton slyly takes us on a side trip -- through our love of cats -- into the secret lives of some of the people we love, or perhaps, love to hate.

A delicious, delightful little book. Highly recommended for the cat lover in your life!
