First published in 2020, Letters of Note: Cats is a wonderful collection of engaging missives that celebrate, eulogise, rail against and analyse the idiosyncratic ways of our feline companions. In this volume, you will discover that we owe one particular cat a huge debt of gratitude for inspiring one of history’s most influential scientists to improve our lives immeasurably. You will learn about a musical instrument that was to be powered by cats. You will learn of a legally dubious business plan involving a steady supply of cats, rats, and snakes, and a very healthy profit. You will learn about supernatural, double-tailed, Japanese cats. You will learn about the cat who brought a much-needed smile to the face a young girl hiding from the worst of humankind. You will learn about the Illinois Governor who with great panache defended the cat community from a group of overcautious bird-lovers. You will learn about a poem written by one of the greats in memory of a cat who fell into a fishbowl. You will learn about the cat who defecated into a tissue box belonging to a famous novelist—a novelist who, at the time, as luck would have it, had a cold.

You will learn all of these things, and more, through those time capsules we call letters, humans’ most precious, enjoyable, and endangered form of communication.

Includes letters by:
Nikola Tesla, Elizabeth Taylor, Charles Dickens, Anne Frank, T.S. Eliot, Raymond Chandler, John Cheever, Florence Nightingale, Rachel Carson, Jack Lemmon, and many more.

A great small gift for the cat lovers in your life whether it's for their birthday, Christmas or just to let them know you care.
