"Cat-watching people like nothing better than talking about people-watching cat they have known and loved. Cats are a tonic, they are a laugh, they are a cuddle, they are at least pretty just about all of the time and beautiful some of the time. They are demanding, and they are also giving for people who are accepting. Who cares if they want to watch? Why not, if it gives them pleasure? If I knew wht they wanted, I would even perform for them. It is more than likely that I already do without even knowing it. It is little enough to offer in return for the pleasure of this very old and true relationship." From the back cover of the book.
That about sums up this book from cat-lover Roger A. Caras, former ABC special correspondent for animals and the environment, and past president of the ASPCA. The book is full of drawings and photographs of cats including some by Steinlen and Sanborn. 222 pages plus index.
Published by Simon and Schuster in 1989. I believe this is a first edition. There is no printing line or ISBN. The book is in fine condition.
