History, art, literature and CATS are my greatest loves, and I can’t think of any better way to combine them than to research and write about the cat’s relationship with man throughout history. Following the cat’s journey, sometimes glorious and pampered, sometimes dangerous and deadly, can only lead to a better understanding of our own past and beliefs.
I dedicate this history to all my past and present feline companions: Beasty Godzilla (RIP), PC Ma (RIP), Sphinxus Aurelius Rexus, Imperious Maximus Nero, Beseechy Runtus (RIP), Ruby the Cutey (RIP), Neechia and Tibby as well as to all those who truly love cats.
