Cats have provided writers and artists with inspiration for as long as they have been winding themselves purring round their owners’ legs and fixing them with their big, green eyes. The poems in this pamphlet are evidence of some wonderful cats and their amusing and endearing ways, from Thom Gunn’s kittens galloping like a re-enactment of Ben Hur along the corridor, to Jen Hadfield’s cat asking to be let in at the kitchen door…then out again… . This pamphlet is best enjoyed with a cat on your lap.
‘Puss with delight beyond expression,
Surveyed the scene and took possession.’
from ‘The Retired Cat’ by William Cowper (1731 – 1800)
