Book Review: Historical Cats by Linda Bartash-Dawley


In short - a fascinating book of cat-toids (or fact-oids, if you like) about (nearly) everyone's favourite domesticated pet!

Of course, there were things I knew about cats even before reading this book. Things like how a black cat shouldn't cross your path. Conversely, I have heard tales of how it is lucky to let one do so.

I suppose it may come down to this - are you kind to cats? If you are, there is no need to fear them. If not, well...having been to Egypt some years ago, we were told that the cat was almost revered like a God.

I can believe it.

At home, with our four cats, we simply adore them (though not at 2am when they want to get into the house). We are their servants!

However, the book's title is part of why I wanted to read this, but of surprising interest was the famous owners of cats, some of which I knew, but many others which I had no idea.

I found myself smiling as I read this book. Don't we read to be entertained and informed? I do! So this book will have same effect on all readers, I'm sure of it.

A great book compiled by an author who clearly understands her subject, and her audience.
