Indeed these are cat classics: four of the best-written tales about cats. They range in date of publication from the early 1700s to just before the turn of this century. You may not be familiar with all these stories, but after you’ve finished reading, you’ll be as big a fan as I am. So settle back, and prepare to savor the words of these cat-loving writers. I think in particular of Christopher Smart’s words about Jeoffry, his cat, and “his electrical and glowing eyes” with which he keeps “the Lord’s watch in the night against the adversary.” What a phrase! And Fritz Leiber’s superkitten, Gummitch, possibly the bravest kitten who ever lived. Cats Paw Books is happy to be able to bring you these stories.
