It's the ideal gift for a cat lover: a thoroughly charming compendium of fabulous feline short stories, extracts, poems, and even a complete kitty astrology. Lavish illustrations and irresistible paintings are by an artist whose work has graced books, cards, stationery, jigsaws, and more. The title feline in Jan D'Lord's humorous tale, "Bluebell: Diary of a Cat Branching Out" appears stuck in a tree after chasing a squirrel. Paws balanced on branches, plaintive face stretched out in the purple evening light, Bluebell seems to await rescue. In another darling image, several cats cuddle on a bed, atop their resting owner. Whether standing in the snow, lazing in a pumpkin patch, or taking the sun on a window seat, each animal has its own beauty and winning personality. Included among the writings: William Cowper's A Poet's Cat, passages from George Orwell's A Clergyman's Daughter, and Charles Dudley Warner's Calvin the Cat.
