Covers, cartoons, authors of pieces both longer and shorter, reflect current views of the feline subject in all its glory, and sometimes disgrace, as well as those of bygone days. Poets like Ted Hughes and Robert Graves sit alongside contributions from the magazine's former regular columnists--e.g., James Thurber's 1952 post-party tale "The Case of Dimity Ann" and E.B White's informative "How To Make a Cat Trap" (1930). Included in this generous collection are big cats, lost cats, Army cats, bookstore and even wine-shop cats, cat therapists, a cat man, catsitters and cat savers.

Any cat lover will enjoy the stories, cartoons, cover art, and poems in this book. The New Yorker has been publishing since 1925 and the items selected cover a spectrum of these 92 years. I found it helpful to check the publication date at the end of a story before reading it as initially I did not do so and found some of the fiction a little difficult to relate to without the context of year. Highly recommend. Kristi & Abby Tabby
