Description

The newest entry in the feline literary canon is here… so pee on this, cat poet wannabes 


Hipster cats, stay-at-home-mom cats, windowsill cats, and outdoor cats—you’ll find them all here, immortalized in prose about, for, and sometimes by, cats. With a Brooklyn edge, author Jennifer McCartney ups the cool quotient on this burgeoning genre.


Of Mice and Men


There once was a cat who loved books


He liked bookshelves that had lots of nooks


He thought especially nice


The tomes about mice


One page and the kitty was hooked


 


From limericks to beat poems, haikus to sonnets, riffs on famous verse to original blank verse, there is something here for every cat lover to enjoy.
