Review:

"Every lover of cats should own this book...the best single treatise on the cat, spiritually rather than biologically considered, that we have ever seen."--"Chicago Evening Post"
""The Tiger in the House" is absolutely fascinating. As a matter of fact, it is a treasure house. The little scraps of literary gossip in it alone make it absolutely indispensable for anyone who likes to explore the hedgy bypaths of an author's life and thoughts. I wouldn't be without it for anything."--"Chicago Tribune
"
"At last the cat has a book worthy of him...luxurious, regal, self-certain, and complete."--"New York Evening Post"
Carl Van Vechten wrote "what many think the two best books about cats ever published, "Lords of the Housetops" and "The Tiger in the House.""--"The Chicago Daily Tribune"
