Synopsis

There's no question that cats rule the world-ask any cat owner and they'll tell you how these balls of fur insert themselves into our lives and establish dominion over the household. In this book, Leah Goren brings together smart, funny essays by ban.do founder Jen Gotch, writer Mara Altman, novelist Emma Straub, and designer Justina Blakeney, among others. She also conducts illuminating interviews with women who have built their lives or careers around cats, such as the founder of a big-cat sanctuary in California, the president of an animal advocacy organisation in NYC, and the executive director of the world's largest registry of pedigreed cats. Throughout the book, Goren's appealing illustrations bring the joys of cat friendship to life, while her observations about the roles that cats have played in history, fashion, mythology, and art help us understand why the human-cat connection is so powerful. Sophisticated yet accessible, and featuring the work of a hugely popular illustrator, this book's wisdom and artwork reveal deeper truths about what makes cats so appealing as companions. Catlady will speak to the millions of cat lovers who know just how strongly we identify with our feline friends.
