As with a work of art, you never completely understand a cat. This is true of other things, too, but their mystery is seldom haunting, and we feel no desire to possess them. People have rushed into a burning house, risking their lives, to save a painting or a cat.

Anyone who's ever lived with a cat will recognize a kindred spirit in Leonard Michaels, the short-story writer and essayist whose feline observations in A Cat are as beautiful and beguiling as the animals themselves. The book's deceptively simple design—just a few words or sentences on each page, paired with evocative line drawings—belie its deep insight into the creatures who've spent millennia nonchalantly captivating humans. Cat lovers, you don't want to miss this thoughtful, elegant, adoring celebration of your favorite furry companion. (KG)
