Last year I compiled a list of books for cat lovers. Here are ten more witty, heartwarming, and hilarious books for feline fanatics.
On Cats by Doris Lessing
Doris Lessing’s love affair with cats began when she was a child living on a farm in Africa, where semi-feral felines roamed free. Over the course of her life, many cats shared her home and stole her heart, including one notable cat named El Magnifico. In On Cats, Lessing remembers the cats that have “slunk and bullied and charmed” their way into her life and writes about the ways in which these relationships affected her.10 More Books for Cat LoversClick To Tweet
Puss in Boots by Charles Perrault
Puss may just be the greatest fictional cat of all time. Made famous in this seventeenth-century tale and recast in numerous adaptations in the centuries since then, Puss is the original swashbuckling kitty. Also worth reading is Angela Carter’s reimagining of Puss in Boots, which can be found in her short story collection, The Bloody Chamber and in Cat Stories (below).
