Feline fanciers Michael and Margaret Korda take a look at people who love cats.
Cat owners love their pets and will go to great lengths to provide the best for their animals. Michael and Margaret Korda are no different ever since Margarets passion for her four-footed friends rubbed off on her somewhat reluctant husband, Michael. In Cat People, the couple introduces readers to other cat lovers and shares the ways these pet owners show affection to their pets.
Readers learn of historical figures whose lives revolved around their cats, including Cleopatra, who took her pets with her on her transatlantic journeys. We meet everyday pet owners that aren't afraid to spoil their cats. One owner shares a gourmet lunch with her cat everyday, while another couple opened their home to 23 feline friends. The Kordas also share tales about their own pets, such as Mumsie, a stray that showed up with two kittens in tow, and Chui, a difficult cat that shared their home.
An assortment of cats graces the pages of the book accompanied by Michael Kordas fanciful line drawings. Cat owners and lovers will enjoy learning about the lengths other feline fanciers will go to for their beloved pets.
