Why would anyone have thirty-four cats? One cat is perfectly adequate to lower your blood pressure and make you smile or even laugh out loud. The cats in this story, who have an ideal home, were inspired by fifty years of feline friendships and a little imagination. The author's watercolors include portraits of some of those marvelous creatures as well as some fantasized companions. Their names are part of the story and many of them have been changed to protect those guilty of instilling love, admiration and joy in their serving staff. If you enjoy getting under the cat and watching the inside of your eyelids you will appreciate why the author wants to return in her future life as one of her own pets.
