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!
