I have come across two gems:

The Tiger in the House by Carl van Vechten. Great little study of the cat in which he discusses some aspects of Colette's Sept Dialogues de Betes which is in itself an interesting book. Both Toby-Chien and KiKi-la-Doucette are such engaging characters! What conversations!

While we are on literary subjects, here is another quiz:
What is the relationship between Chopin and F. Scott Fitzgerald?

Hint: it has to do with cats. This is a cat blog, you know.

Answer to the quiz:
The answer is as simple and easy as it comes - Chopin was F. Scott Fitzgerald's cat. Can't be the other way round.

If you don't read French you can download an English translation of the book:

The Project Gutenberg EBook of Barks and Purrs (Sept Dialogues de BĂȘtes)
by Colette Willy, aka Colette
Translated by Maire Kelly

This eBook is for the use of anyone anywhere at no cost and with
almost no restrictions whatsoever. You may copy it, give it away or
re-use it under the terms of the Project Gutenberg License included

There you go, no excuse not to read it. It's fun!

Great pictures, Momo,
F. Scott Fitzgerald happens to be one of my owner's favourite authors....

SS likes him too. Something to do with the elegance of his style and the age.
