Read an Excerpt

The sexiest cat I've ever seen on paper was in an advertisement. It was a black cat used to model jewelry sold by a now defunct New York department store. He posed with his back to the camera, a slew of diamonds and pearls wrapped around his tail. I can't imagine any person in the world could look as sexy as he did: absolutely elegant, perfectly formed, self-possessed, mysterious.

In fact, cats have the whole act down pat. Between the look, the walk, the lounging around, and the primping, cats have been practicing how to be sexy for years.

The look: tiny mouth, tiny nose, big eyes, sleek coat, flat belly. If you took a pen to paper and tried to design the sexiest animal on the planet, you'd end up with a cat.

Consider the colors they come in. Nature has bestowed more colors to the domestic house cat than to any other species. Black, orange, white, gray, fawn, chocolate, tortoiseshell, sable, to name a few. And some come in incredible, dazzling combinations: white cats with green eyes, orange cats with blue eyes. Have you ever seen a calico with eyes of two different colors?

The walk: cats can walk as gracefully as a runway model, full of restraint and confidence. They hardly ever lose their balance. They jump to high places with no apparent effort, rarely knocking anything over. If you watch your cat for years, perhaps someday you might become privy to the secret language of his tail. I have it on good authority that every movement means something, from enthusiasm to friendship.

Lounging around: cats are the sexiest accessories. They simply know how to pose in such a way as to improve the look of any chair, sofa, or bed. They'llnever let you catch them off guard: even half-asleep (which is the most asleep they ever are), they manage to look graceful no matter what. I have to confess I once had a fat cat that snored, but it was nothing like a dog's snore, let alone my uncle Henry's.

The primping: cats know that to be sexy, you have to be clean and smell good. For that, they are willing to sacrifice a good part of their day. Even the tiniest kittens know to lick their coats clean and to wash themselves behind the ears by wetting their paws first. Can you think of another animal who works so hard at being sexy?

— J.C. Suarés
