Top Customer Reviews

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.

This is a great little book if you are at all interested in Cats. Where that author got the facts I have no idea but a must have if you are into cats. I would suggest rebinding it in leather and putting it in your favourite books collection.

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.
