From silly to sweet, 365 cat sketches by Michael Korda, drawn with love for his wife With the imagination of a writer and the eye of an artist, Michael Korda doodled on the backs of old manuscripts in his tackroom while his wife, Margaret, was out riding. They loved and acquired cats—a habit written about previously in their book, Cat People—and the few in residence at this time would serve as inspiration for the drawings. These are no ordinary cat illustrations, though. Korda’s cats read newspapers and books; go ice skating in the small country town where they live; comfort Margaret’s horse, Monty, after a stressful vet visit; sell fried mice at the Farmer’s Market, and undertake (on paper, at least) whatever fanciful endeavors their keeper conjures up. The result is a collection of magical pieces, filled with joy, that represent a year in the life of a couple in love with one another, and certainly with their cats.

The Hilarious Memoir of a Kept Man Are women brighter than men? Mark Munro thinks so, and he has the facts to prove it! In this hilarious autobiography of a kept man, Munro decides that the newly dominant female sex has earned all the rights and privileges that were once the exclusive property of men. Most important is the right to keep mistresses, or in their case, boy toys. “Why not?” Munro asks. “Women have the power, the money, and the spare time that once was the exclusive property of the Old Boys Club. Why shouldn’t they use it the way men always did?” Munro’s problem is that through no fault of his own he has become the property of three amorous cougars. mistresses were always clever enough to manage an army of sugar daddies, but men can’t cope with such complications. With scheme after scheme, he tries to keep the ladies apart. But, the best laid plans of men inevitably backfire, leaving him the helpless victim of feminine outrage. His only hope is a large dose of catnip.

Andrew Marttila has been a professional animal photographer for the past five years and most of that time has been dedicated to photographing cats exclusively. With his set-up he's able to capture wonderful split-second images of'cat's most abandoned expressions as they enjoy every cats favourite treat, catnip. Andrew rescues and raises orphan kittens with his partner Hannah Shaw (the internet's famous Kitten Lady), and many of the models were hand-raised by Andrew and Hannah from newborns. Catnip, or Nepeta cataria, grows wild in many parts of the world and is extremely easy to grow at home in most climates. It's part of the mint family and contained within the bulbs, stems, and leaves is an oil called nepetalactone. Once eaten, rolled on, or crushed, the oil binds to the cat's nasal receptors and stimulates a response that affects a number of areas in the brain, including the hypothalamus and amygdala, two regions that are key in regulating emotional and behavioral responses to stimuli. This produces a mild euphoric effect and typically lasts about ten to twenty minutes. Catnip is non-addictive and harmless and provides a temporary respite from your cat's gruelling workload of napping all day.

From The Metropolitan Museum of Art's vast holdings comes this charming collection of fine art felines. Cats of all types provide the artistic mews for the gallery of images presented here, all perfectly paired with quips about cats from some of our most famous writers, thinkers, and humorists, among them Leonardo da Vinci, Oscar Wilde, and Gertrude Stein. The face of a cat superimposed on an artists self-portrait is accompanied by Mark Twain's dry wit: "If man could be crossed with a cat, it would improve man but deteriorate the cat." Cats have been captivating artists and thinkers for centuries, and nowhere is it more apparent than in this heartwarming homage—from an ancient Egyptian statue of a cat, to a medieval illumination of a tiny cat sharpening its claws on the manuscript, to a Japanese painting of a cat patiently stalking a spider. This gift of a book, filled with the most exquisite portraits of cats doing what they do best, is guaranteed to enchant.
