On the heels of Horse Sayings and Dog Sayings, it is only right there should be one dedicated to our feline friends and that is exactly what Wheler delivers in this collection of original art and quotes. Sixty artists from nine countries provide a wonderful diversity of styles, poses and mediums with even a pig thrown in for good measure, all which add warmth and charm to the many witticisms. “There are no ordinary cats” from that opening quote of Colette to Albert Einstein’s observation that “A man has to work so hard so that something of his personality stays alive. A tomcat has it so easy, he has only to spray and his presence is there for years on a rainy day” this slender volume holds a wealth of feline wisdom. Quotes from the likes of Earnest Hemingway, Lewis Carroll and Sir Walter Scott as well as lesser-known figures round out this sweet assemblage that is simply purrfect for the cat lovers in your life.
