Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0517161869, Hardcover)

This delightful book celebrates the feline with fun facts, fascinating anecdotes, charming and funny quotations, kitty verse, cats in history and literature, celluloid cats, cat superstitions--even surfing the pet net!

THE BIG BOOK OF CATS is perfect for curling up on the couch with you-know-who and reading kitty quips from the silly to the sublime:

         ¸         Paula Poundstone: The problem with
                cats is that they get the exact same
                look on their face whether they see
                a moth or an ax murder.

         ¸         T. S. Eliot: When a Cat adopts you
                there is nothing to be done about
                it except to put up with it and wait
                until the wind changes.

         ¸         Mary Bly: Dogs come when they're
                called; cats take a message and get
                back to you.

Don't know what to name the new kitten? Choose from the extensive lists of names for various types of cats:

         ¸         General, All-Purpose,
                Undifferentiated Cats;
                Or, Cats for All Seasons

         ¸         Adventurous and Exploratory Cats

         ¸         Artisticats

         ¸         Cinematicats

         ¸         Classicats and Mythicats

         ¸         Dinocats

         ¸         Literary Cats

         ¸         Medieval and Arthurian Cats

         ¸         Shakespearean Cats

         ¸         and even names that no
                cat should ever have!

There are care tips and helpful hints, the evolution of the cat, cat tales, legends--simply everything
a cat fancier desires. With so much cat information in one place, cat lovers won't be able to put this book down!
