A cast of mousers, pouncers, purrers and moggy muses paw their way through this cat-lovers collection, penned by some of the greatest poets.
Across the ages, cats have provided their adopted humans with companionship, affection, mystery, and innumerable metaphors.
Cats raise a mirror up to their beholders; cats endlessly captivate and hypnotise, frustrate and delight. To poets, in particular, these enigmatic creatures are the most delightful and beguiling of muses, as they purr, prowl, hunt, play, meow, and nap, often oblivious to their so-called masters.
Cat Poems offers a litter of odes to our beloved felines by some of the greatest poets of all time.
