Description
Eloquent yet merry, witty but also bristling with insightful and stoutly defended opinions, this appealing volume celebrates the enigmatic "otherness" of the domestic cat—its grace and manners, skills and mysteries, even its failings and maddening peculiarities. Originally published in 1988 as The Name of the Cat, Barbara Holland's cat's-eye view of the world is illuminated with examples from Winston Churchill's ginger tom, who attended cabinet meetings, to the author's own George II, who was both bitten by a mouse and adopted by a blue jay. Illustrated with Emily Schilling's charming cartoons, this edition includes a new foreword by Holland.
