I pounced on this book at Birdie's today. This is a perfect addition to my upcoming Cat Stories bookbox. I think I'll even have to read this one before it goes out. Thanks again, Melydia. I enjoyed seeing you again today.

I finally finished reading this, and will be sending it out soon in my Cat Stories bookbox. This is an anthology of short stories and poems, with each one being designated as an example of an aspect of cat's personalities, such as The Maternal Cat (Jennie's Lessons to Peter on How to Behave Like a Cat by Paul Gallico), The Criminal Cat (Macavity, The Mystery Cat by T. S. Eliot), and The Clever Cat (Puss in Boots by Charles Perrault). I wish more of these were by authors I was familiar with, but there was a wide variety, along with lovely black and white drawings.
Thanks for sharing, Melydia. Hope the next reader enjoys this!

I'm claiming this book from the Cat Stories bookbox
; while some of the entries here are familiar, others are new to me!
Later: Very enjoyable collection, with everything from poetry to pictures of historical artifacts. Among my favorite bits: the excerpts from Gallico's The Abandoned
, in which Jennie teaches boy-turned-cat Peter how to BE a cat; Murray Robinson's "Danger - Crazy Cats" article, which opens with a warning against taking home any cute little stray kittens and almost immediately shifts to encouragement to do just that; and Q. Patrick's "The Fat Cat", in which a cat saves (by accident, but still...) the marine who cared for it.
And the classics, like "Archie and Mehitabel" and "The Cat That Walked By Himself", and the Walter Chandoha cat-photos, and "Tobermory" - all in all a very rich collection!
