9781906217006: The Cat Fanatic: Quirky Quotes on Frisky Felines

A discriminating selection of the most pithy, profound, and humorous statements on record about "the tiger on the hearth." Judging from the amount of thought devoted over the centuries to figuring out what goes through their furry little heads, it is probably safe to say that cats fascinate more human beings than any member of the animal kingdom, with the possible exception of dogs, horses, and other human beings," begins this delightful collection. Charles Elliott has created a cat book of a different color, sifting through the multitude of writings about felines to include only those quotes "made memorable by their seriousness, humor, perceptiveness, or ingenuity." Here is an unexpectedly wide range of writers and personalities. There are classic sayings from: Elizabeth Bishop George Eliot Nancy Mitford Erma Bombeck James Herriott Damon Runyon Lewis Carroll P. D. James Elizabeth Marshall Thomas Geoffrey Chaucer Rudyard Kipling Mark Twain William Churchill Doris Lessing John Updike Colette Herman Melville H. G. Wells And many more.

From the Back Cover:

The Quotable Cat Lover is a discriminating selection of the most pithy, profound, and humorous statements on record about 'the tiger on the hearth.' Judging from the amount of thought devoted over the centuries to figuring out what goes through their furry little heads, it is clear that cats fascinate us. In this delightful collection, Charles Elliott reveals an unexpectedly wide range of writers and personalities whom, it turns out, have been cat-people (or sometimes cat-haters, but there's room for them too), including: Roy Blount, Jr., Noel Coward, Charles Dickens, T. S. Eliot, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Anne Morrow Lindburgh, Camille Paglia, Beatrix Potter, William Shakespeare, P. G. Wodehouse, and many more. Entertaining and decorated with lovely illustrations, this is the perfect book to read with a cat curled up on one's lap: the perfect gift for any feline fancier. (5 7/8 X 6 7/8, 276 pages, illustrations)
