The Comfort Of Cats

"Authors like cats because they are such quiet, lovable, wise creatures and cats like authors for the same reason." - Robertson Davies
This book explores the bond between Kitty, a creatively named Siamese cat, and the woman who lives with her, Pamela Wallin (notice we dared not say owner).

Kitty has been at Pamela's side through many of the traumas that life offers up - divorce, being fired and battling cancer - and countless other emotional crises that punctuate a life story.

Someone once said, in order to keep a true perspective on one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.

In fact, the words of Albert Schweitzer more accurately reflect the sentiment of this book: "There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats."

Through the words and experiences of cat lover Pamela Wallin and through the eyes of award winning photographer, Anne Bayin, witness the wonderful beauty, history, elegance and humour of our feline friends.

Moggies Review: A wonderful book, one that will enchant readers of all ages. Highly recommended reading.
