  4. Cat Tales
    £14.95
    2016-08-24 00:00:00

    A beautifully produced hardback featuring a unique collection of extraordinary, whimsical and sometimes bizarre but true stories. From cats that loved birds to cats that danced, sang and even saved their owner's lives, this unique collection of feline stories brings together some of the strangest and most endearing tales from the past two centuries – and best of all, the stories are true.

    Many of the most intriguing of these tales come from long forgotten books, newspapers and magazines published here, in Europe and America, but they have one thing in common: they all reflect our passion for cats in all their variety – from the tough old farm cat to the pampered Persian. Here you will find cats that looked after dogs (and hedgehogs), cats that became lifeling friends with birds, foxes and even frogs, not to mention cats that learned to ring doorbells and lost cats that travelled hundreds of miles to get home.
