About this item

“Ignorant people think it is the noise which fighting cats make that is so aggravating, but it ain’t so; it is the sickening grammar that they use.” —Mark Twain

Cats can be playful, nonchalant, cunning, and coy, much like their human companions. The Cat Lover’s Compendium is dedicated to the history and nature of the fantastic feline, celebrating all the curious characteristics of the cat. For those who purr with delight at the thought of relaxing with a good read and a sweet, furry feline curled up on their lap, this compilation makes a perfect gift, bringing together cat facts, fables, poems, quotations, trivia, and behavioral tips. Not only does this book provide an indulgently pleasurable read for the avid ailurophile (one who fancies cats), but it also illuminates some of the mysterious nature of our furry and secretive, four-legged counterparts.

“The great Sir Winston Churchill owned several cats, including Nelson, Margate, Tango, and a marmalade cat named Jock that ate and slept with him, and attended several wartime cabinet meetings. If Jock was late for dinner, Churchill would send servants to find him and wouldn’t start eating until he had arrived.” —From The Cat Lover’s Compendium
