BOOKS: The A.B.C. of Cat Trivia

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, April 1996:

The A.B.C. of Cat Trivia
by Rod Evans and Irwin Berent
Thomas Dunne, St. Martin’s Press
(175 5th Ave., New York, N.Y. 10010),
1996. $19.95.

This seems rather pricy to me, as
so many of the items are rather well-known.
I suppose it has utility as a reference, if one
frequently gives speeches on cats, but if you
just want to wow a cat-owned date with cat
lore, you would probably do as well to arrive
with a catnip mouse. Included are 200 pages
of superstitions about cats, cruelties to cats
done by historical personages, long lists of
place names and floral designations which
seem to have as little to do with cats as one
always figured.
