內容簡介


Cats were first domesticated or, more likely, noticed a warm fireside and chose to domesticate themselves many thousands of years ago. Over the centuries they have performed a useful role as pest controllers, but much more as friends and companions of humans. Cats have always inspired writers and artists. They appear in Egyptian papyri and tomb paintings, in Roman mosaics, in Japanese prints, in Old Master drawings and engravings. At different times and places they have been worshipped, mummified, ass ociated with superstition and black magic, and bred as domestic pets. This delightful illustrated anthology includes a selection of the many poems, anecdotes and quotations about cats which have been written over the centuries: the charming, the funny, th e sad, the exasperated, and the heartfelt. In a fresh new paperback format with a selection of new images, this is a n irresistible gift for anyone who likes cats.
