From the puss that munched a thousand mice, to the simple soul who concludes that a furball is a furball is a furball, this is a poetry anthology for cat-lovers.
IMMORTAL POEMS BY THE CATS OF THE MAJOR POETS
Lyrical or jaunty, the world's most sophisticated felines display their talents and are every bit as erudite as their human counterparts. From the puss that munched a thousand mice to the simple soul who concludes that a furball is a furball is a furball, this is an anthology for cats, cat-lovers and discriminating poets alike.
FROM CAT YEARS
'by Ogden Nash's Cat'
The next time you put on your waterproof togs
And venture outside while it rains us and dogs
Ask which you'd rather have land on your noodle:
A cute little cat or a ninety-pound poodle?
Shakespeare's cat soliloquises, Milton's cat muses on territory lost. Wordsworth's cat wanders hungry as a hawk while Dylan Thomas's cat urges its fellows not to go peaceable to that damned vet, chasing mice, raiding the larder, catnip, fish, bunnies and wriggling rodents are immortalised in these learned poems.
'by Getrude Stein's Cat'
FURBALL IS A FURBALL IS A FURBALL.
