In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this.
- Terry Pratchett
If you count yourself among those humans wise enough to be "cat people," you'll love this elegant little collection of poetry, prose, and other quotations about the feline mystique. Beautifully illustrated with colorful photographs of pretty kitties napping, jumping, playing, and generally being majestic, the words of Robert Frost, Colette, Mark Twain, Beatrix Potter, Leonardo da Vinci, and other luminaries wonderfully capture the enigmatic essence of these furry "connoisseurs of comfort."
