    Can anyone tell me the name of the painting by H.H.Couldery which won the Publisher’s competition in 1881? Information I need for my forthcoming publication.

  2. Not sure how/where to download the free book.

  3. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy your Pinterest boards! You were one of the first pinners I followed when I started on Pinterest in 2009 and I have enjoyed pinning to the Christmas Cats board. If you think I might be a good fit for any others you have, please let me know. Thanks!

    I have a print of his “Stealing the Cream” Just loved it when I saw it at an Antique store in East Bloomfield, NY. I grew up in that area and have lived in the Midwest since 1962, Presently near Bloomington, IL. I just love his works. Thank you for sharing.

  13. The drawings of those cats are so beutiful! I love them very much!

  14. I’ve only signed up today and haven’t had time to read anything else yet. What I was doing was looking up a particular poem by Petrarch and discovered that he loved his cat so much that he had it mummified and kept it in his house! I think you’d find the story by looking up ‘Petrarch and his cat’.

    I have two female cats (probably a mistake) who both love me but don’t love each other! One is about two feet long and weighs a stone, possibly a
    Maine Coon cross; she’s called Squeaky as she says eee, eee, eee as soon as she comes through the catflap and all the way upstairs until she finds me. The other, Pussycat, is a mixture of things like Abyssinian, with pretty little white paws and a spotted coat.

  20. Thank for the site. I have read that Charles Dickens cat would sit by his side late at night while.he wrote and when the cat thought it was time for Dickens to get to bed he would wave his paw above the candle to put it out

    I bought Revered and Reviled on February 11 2017. That’s what the receipt says. I lent the book to my mother and forgot about it until I saw it laying on her kitchen table. After picking it up and starting to read it, I couldn’t put it down. This is a fantastically interesting book. I won’t be lending it out again. Sorry mom! I’ll recommend it to everyone I know.It’s that good! I also have 4 feral kittens that turned into cool house cats. Samson only has 3 legs as I found him on an highway overpass after being hit by a car. His right arm was almost off. $1800 later I had a 2 month old feral 3 legged cat. Purringest cat I’ve ever had. He thinks he is the king but my older much bigger Main Coon Max puts him in his res pective place. Ellie Mae just walked into my house when she was about 2.5 months old. And 2 year old Sparky is a farm kitten I got for Samson when he was only 5 weeks old. Big orange tabby cat now, about 16 pounds. Nicest cat I ever had. Anyway, this is my all time favorite book. Thank You for writing such a great book. Greg.

    • WOW! Thanks so much…you made my day! So glad you enjoyed the book Revered and Reviled. You are obviously a great cat lover. What a wonderful job you are doing at rescuing those needy poor souls. I’m sure you will be repaid with their love.
