about this item

Schott’s Original Miscellany was a publishing phenomenon. It sired a host of sequels and  parodies. But no matter how patiently and for how many years they waited,  the potential feline readership was overlooked. Until now.  

A Cat-Lover’s Miscellany is how the original would have appeared had its creator been an obsessive cat owner. Or, indeed, a very curious cat. It parodies the randomness of entry and stylishness of design of the original, but is created entirely for cats and their obedient owners and admirers. The result is an irresistible outpouring of feline facts, embracing the essential, the trivial, the intriguing, and the extraordinary. Named in tribute to the Clintons’ White House moggy (and every other cat that inherited the presidential moniker), this is the perfect laptop or coffee-table book to give as a gift for cat lovers. Herein you will discover such treats as Sir Isaac Newton’s invention of the cat flap or kitty door; the origins and popularity of cat names; the power of catmint; how long cats spend asleep each day; T.S. Eliot’s Practical Cats; and the famous Chopin waltz that was in fact composed by the composer’s cat.
