The dignified tabby on the cover of The Quotable Feline almost dares the feline fancier to come closer. Inside, page after page of entertaining photos are matched perfectly with a short poem or hilarious quip. Rich sepia tones add a wonderful antique finish to all the photos, each capturing a classic moment in the day of a cat. A few are special poses--a fluffy white cat draped with pearls is accompanied by Colette's comment, "By associating with the cat, one only becomes richer"--but many are simply kitties caught in the act of being their delightful selves. Peeking out of a fence, staring into a fishbowl, sitting forlornly on the front step--you're sure to see a calico, tiger-stripe, or tabby that reminds you of a favorite pet or kitten moment. Authors such as Joyce Carol Oates, Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams, and Ernest Hemingway cover a range of moods you'll find familiar, from adoration to total exasperation. Your cat's favorite quote is sure to be the one from a royal tomb at Thebes: "Thou art the Great Cat, the avenger of the gods, and the judge of words, and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy Circle; thou art indeed... the Great Cat." Try reading that aloud to your kitty--you're sure to get the look that says, "What, you only just figured this out, human?" --Jill LightnerFrom the Inside Flap:
Forty-five cats, young and old, smiling and morose, affectionate and aloof. Each is accompanied by an apt quotation ("Dogs come when they're called. Cats takes a message and get back to you.") drawn from a variety of the most articulate celebrators of the cat, including Chekhov and Colette, Hemingway and Jules Verne, Leonardo da Vinci ("The smallest feline is a masterpiece.") and Jim Davis of Garfield fame. A cat alone by the telephone, a cat eyeing a goldfish, a cat returning the love of a person, an intrepid explorer kitten--image after image, printed in glowing sepia tones on ivory paper, demonstrates the special grace and intuition that Dratfield and Coughlin bring to the photography of animals. This beautiful cat book is sure to be the perfect treat for your favorite cat lover.
