Did you know that white cats are usually deaf? Or that when a cat is frightened it sweats through its feet? Or that ancient Egyptians shaved off their eyebrows to mourn the death of a cat? Any self-respecting cat lover will be delighted to discover these feline facts and more in Nicola Bayley's The Necessary Cat, a lovely, old-fashioned tribute to cats and kittens of all varieties. Exquisitely detailed, whimsical illustrations in diverse styles highlight Bayley's scrapbook-like collection of old-fashioned cat toys (and new ones, too!); cat stats; cat lore; cat poems by such luminaries as William Wordsworth, W.B. Yeats, and Walter de la Mare; cat words; and famous cats and their infamous feats. Feline fanciers of all ages will enjoy pawing through this delightful album--dare we say it's the cat's meow?
