"Smart, bright, well-written...A book about cats as good as this one is rare." -- Smithsonian "May be the most elegantly written, witty, perceptive statement about felines ever published." -- Philadelphia Inquirer "Charming...Will soften the heart of even a certified ailurophobe." -- Publishers Weekly "Perhaps the best aspect of the book, combined with Holland's style, is the appropriately low-grade temperature of the cat/human philosophizing-nicely situated between Sartre and Wild Kingdom." -- Trenton NJ Times "An absolutely wonderful and sometimes hilarious and always soulful book." -- Mademoiselle
