Overview

This is an quirky little volume with a rather bizarre, off-beat humor. It is written in a vernacular which might be supposed cat language, such as: "Music's Debt to Cats: Cats is very musical, bein filled with violin-strings which is coiled up like clock springs and which is worked like wind-instruments by blowin through them with their livers. Cats is very emotional and when agitated can run through the whole gimlet of Cataline Passions,--both joyous, lovin and remorseful" and "Cats on Histry's Page--The Sacred Cat: Long time ago, way back in Egypt, they wuz awful fond of Cats. Uncle Ben says they jest wurshiped them. And sometimes Cats wuz found the colour of red sacks that they kept coffee in, and these wuz called Sack-red Cats and wuz spesly honored by bein buried alive with the dead kings and things. Gee, I'd hate to be a Sack-red Cat." It is beautifully illustrated by the author himself and contains an introduction from Wallace Irwin.
