Overview

Cats can be adorable and adoring, cunning and conniving. And when they are downright contrary, there ain't a thing you can do about it! Kitty's attitude may change from day to day, but one thing remains the same: cats will always be a very important part of our lives.

With that in mind, Denise Little brings us The Quotable Cat, a delightful collection of quotations in praise of our feline friends. In addition to words penned by cat lovers from Colette to Mark Twain, you'll find fascinating cat facts: Did you know that when a cat died in ancient Egypt, its human family went into full formal mourning? Or that cats, unlike dogs, can see in color? You'll also learn the roots of cat-inspired sayings such as "nine lives" and "raining cats and dogs."

This charming and whimsical collection is the perfect addition to any cat lover's library—'cause when it comes to cats, you can never say enough!

A sample of what you'll find in The Quotable Cat:

There are no ordinary cats.
—Colette

When my cats aren't happy, I'm not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they're just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.
—Penny Ward Moser

Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made the slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.
—Mark Twain
