Cats were first domesticated – or more likely, noticed a warm fireside and chose to domesticate themselves – many thousands of years ago.

Over the centuries, cats have performed useful roles as pest controllers but also as friends and companions of humans. Cats have always inspired writers and artists. They appear in Egyptian papyri and tomb engravings, in Roman mosaics, in Japanese prints, in Old Master drawings and engravings. At different times and places, they have been worshipped, mummified, associated with superstition and black magic, and bred as domestic pets.

This delightful illustrated anthology includes a selection of the many poems, anecdotes and quotations about cats which have been written over the centuries: the charming, the funny, the sad, the exasperated and the heartfelt. In a fresh new paperback format, this is an irresistible gift for any cat lover.
