A reader's review: My wife and I both fell in love with this book from the moment we saw it on the store shelf. Put simply, it is a collection of 1,001 one-paragraph tidbits about everything related to cats--different breeds, the cat anatomy, habits (good and bad), cats in history, famous people who loved cats, "catty" words and phrases, even a section about cat in movies, cartoons, and TV. As a longtime cat lover, I thought I knew cats pretty well, but I'm a lot wiser after reading this. (Finally I understand why our cats like to knead my belly.) My personal favorite was the section dealing with cats in history, particularly their connection with the ancient Egyptians.
