Moggies gives this book five paws out of five.
Having been adopted by two strays from the planet Mogg, God was frequently distracted from designing creation by their sitting on his blueprint of the universe. From the earliest beginning, seeking food and fluffy bedding, they have dogged (aha!) man's footsteps from caves to palaces, tepees to penthouse apartments. Modern manipulative moggies can look back on a heritage of control by purr and claw. Witty and original, this delightful cartoon history is a must for cat lovers everywhere.
Meet God's own cat who sits on the master plan for the creation, find out how cats evolved from furry ameoba to seduce their way into prehistoric cave families, then had a glorious moment in Egypt when the cult of the cat was almost a religion (what's changed?), then a not so wonderful moment in medieval times when they were linked with witches. Witty and original, this delightful cartoon history is a must for every cat lover and will be 2004's Christmas best seller!
