Description
The former editor-in-chief of Simon and Schuster and author of Horse People, latter-day cat-lover Michael Korda joins his wife Margaret, a lifelong devotee, to introduce readers to a hilarious assortment of people whose lives revolve around their cats, and, more importantly, to the cats themselves. Among these are Cleopatra, a transatlantic traveler who found happiness in Paris; Margaret's beloved Irving, whose favorite abode was the Beverly Wilshire Hotel; and Mumsie, who arrived one day at the Korda's door with her two kittens. Here too are "difficult" cats like Chui and poor Mrs. Bumble, and Mr. McT., a bully who found love late in life.

"While there are amusing anecdotes about obsessive ailurophiles (like the couple who order kitty litter by the truckload for their 23 cats), this book is primarily about the many felines, mostly strays, who have come into the Kordas' lives, from faithful Irving, Margaret's cat from her first marriage; to imperious three-legged Queenie, named after Michael's aunt, the actress Merle Oberon; and the thuggish Mr. McTavish."Library Journal
