Description
This affectionate and quirky illustrated history tells the tale of cats from the Egyptian Mau and enchanted felines of Irish legends to cats' roles in the lives of such 20th-century admirers as Klee, Matisse, and Picasso. Madeline Swan introduces the kitten in whose defense John Keats had a fight with a butcher-boy of Hampstead; the two comforting cats who licked the tears from Florence Nightingale cheeks; Oscar, a World War II seafaring cat; Mourka, who risked life and paw across enemy lines at the Battle of Stalingrad to deliver important messages; and Winston Churchill's Nelson, who performed a crucial fuel-saving wartime role as water bottle.
