Arranged as a true miscellany, the book is an extraordinary box of delights that can be read from cover to cover, or dipped into at the reader's whim. Did you know that Americans spend more on cat food than they do on baby food? That while Marilyn Monroe and Charles Dickens loved cats, Julius Caesar, Napoleon Bonaparte and Adolf Hitler all disliked or despised them. That, left to their own devices, one female cat and her offspring can produce 420,000 kittens in just seven years. Do you want to hear about Tom, who travelled over 2,500 miles in a journey that took him over two years, about Grandpa, who lived to 34 years old, or Himmy, who weighed over 45 lbs? As Colette once said 'there are no ordinary cats', and "Cats' Miscellany" is the book to prove her right. It is a celebration of every age of humankind's long, admiring and utterly subservient association with the feline master race, and a work that will delight cat lovers the world over.
