“For I will consider my cat Jeoffry”; “Minnaloushe creeps through the grass/Alone, important and wise”; “The cat/ licks its paw and lies down in/the bookshelf nook”/ “The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea.” This is the book I’ve been waiting for! All of my favorite cat poems and some I didn’t know. So, I admit it: I’m a complete sucker for cat poems, and this cute little collection houses some of the best. Pocket-sized for tucking away and enjoying whenever you need a reminder that you walk the earth with superior creatures. Recommended by Sarah
Across the ages, cats have provided their adopted humans with companionship, affection, mystery, and innumerable metaphors; cats cast a mirror on their beholders; cats endlessly captivate and hypnotize, frustrate and delight.
