about

The cat's meow of a tribute to all aspects of the feline form. This handsome gift volume brings together a miscellany of anecdotes, facts, quotable quotes, and interesting stories that celebrate the beloved cat in all its guises. From the first apparitions of cats in Egyptian art and decoration to the story of Hemingway, who frequently left his house cat to babysit the writer's son Bumby, and from the beloved cartoon characters Felix the Cat, Sylvester, and Tom (Jerry's sidekick) to the history of the famous French Chat Noir cabaret and the jazz classic "Kitten on the Keys," this book offers a pastiche of interesting facts on all aspects of cats.
Frederic Vitoux is a novelist, essayist, and literary critic. His English titles include Cats in the Louvre (Flammarion) and Living in Venice (Flammarion).
