---------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, LOOKS NEW, signed without inscription by Pierre Berton, -----143 pages, b&w illustrations and photos, ---"Who would have guessed that one of the great historianís passions in life is cats? Over the course of his eighty-two years, and from his birthplace in Dawson City, Yukon, to his home in Kleinburg, Ontario, Berton has known and loved many cats. In this charming collection of stories, he has chosen his best cat tales to share with us. Pierre Berton is a master storyteller, and his lyrical writing and sense of pacing and adventure enliven this collection, making it irresistible to any cat lover. The book opens with the adventure of Pousse-Pousse, the cat with extra toes, who was carried off by a Great Horned Owl and, seven months later, reappeared at the door, bedraggled but alive. Pierre Bertonís first cat was Happy, a kitten the teenage Pierre spied in a pet store window ďfree to a good home. It was Depression-era Victoria, and the Bertons barely had enough to feed themselves. Still, they kept Happy, and she produced scores of kittens over the years. There are stories of stray cats and hobo cats, beloved cartoon cats like Felix and Krazy Kat, and finally, -Rules for Guests, - which includes the following: No discussion is so intense, no story so riveting, that it canít be interrupted when a cat enters the room.- ---This beautifully designed small-format book is illustrated with line drawings by Pierre Berton, and b&w photographs "---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
