INSIDE GREETING: I love you once, I love you twice, I love you better, Than cats love mice.~~This coy cat is from the greatest of cat illustrators, Louis Wain (1860 - 1939) whose life was filled with tragedy and triumph. He discovered his propensity to illustrate cats when his wife was ill with cancer and their cat brought her comfort. He struggled with mental illness his entire life, and despite his great success as an illustrator was at one point confined to a grim mental institution until H. G. Wells (and other luminaries) discovered his plight and he was moved to a pleasant hospital, where he lived out his days drawing cats.

About the Author: Louis Wain (1860-1939) is the most famous, and versatile, of cat artists. He was an Englishman, and though he painted and drew many different animals, it is the cat that lay at the center of his inspiration. Wain's cat art encompasses several styles. He created many wonderfully realistic cats, but Wain also wrote and illustrated children's books featuring cats walking on two legs, wearing clothes and otherwise acting human. These are winningly humorous. It is clear from his work that he loved and understood cats, thus it will come as no surprise that he was a lifelong supporter of animal charities. His life was complicated and often sad, marked by mental illness and financial struggles. After a brief period of committal in a grim institution, the intervention of friends and admirers - including King George V and Ramsey Macdonald, then England's prime minister - secured him a place in a pleasant rural hospital, the gardens of which fortuitously hosted a colony of cats. Wain spent his last fifteen years here, and continued to portray his favorite subject. His late work, preternaturally psychedelic and wildly colorful, is the subject of much interest and dispute.
