    I read a couple of chapters a day of this, which was about the right amount for enjoyment, as it really is just a collection of musings about cats and stuff It s touching in parts, amusing in others, and always leisurely in tone.

    This was an unfortunate addition to the Nichols oeuvre for one main reason it was published in 1960 in Britain where evidently the word p sy was used the way we now use kitty And had no other meanings attached to it I admit I m not an especially mature person, however, this made reading this book truly ridiculous.

    Upon discovering Beverley Nichols I spent a small fortune on a heap of his books, this one included I haven t read, Cats A B C , yet because my mother is still in possession While I am not exactly a cat lady, mucha pooch lady, I very much swoon to enter Beverley Nichols world not wishing to miss anything, even his love for felines no less His regaling of three precious pussies certainly did not disappoint as there existed the fringe benefits of passages brimful of Beverley Nichols Upon discovering Beverley Nichols I spent a small fortune on a heap of his books, this one included I haven t read, Cats A B C , yet because my mother is still in possession While I am not exactly a cat lady, mucha pooch lady, I very much swoon to enter Beverley Nichols world not wishing to miss anything, even his love for felines no less His regaling of three precious pussies certainly did not disappoint as there existed the fringe benefits of passages brimful of Beverley Nichols charm amidst his delightful feline play by plays Although I was happy to finish the book, I am even happier to have not missed the sheer enchantment which the beginning of the book does not fail to provide Throughout the rest I definitely encountered artistic literary morsels however the beginning was my most favourite along with charming charcoaled sketchery Enchantment from the book p.20 This would be intolerable, for nothing, surely, isdelightful than sitting down at the piano on a summer day, and playing Chopin or Debussy while the natural sunlight drifts over one s shoulders through the vines outside, creating a filigree of shadow on the printed pagea shifting pattern of ghostly leaf and blossom that dances to the mood of the music p.22 So we must go back to the music room, into which the light is now flooding, after the decease of the copper beech, flooding and streaming in aqueous ripples of light that flicker round the fireplace and over the keys of the piano p.103 We still have not answered the question of what cats actually see I would give a great deal to know cats eyes are among the most beautiful and mysterious jewels of the animal kingdom, and if we could only look through them, though but for a few seconds, we should have a vision of another world

    I m an F person basically feline by nature so naturally I adored this book Nicols considers cats, the most elegant and the most mysterious of God s creatures Theintimately one seems to know them, the less predictable their behaviour If you don t agree, then perhaps this book is not for you.Nicols reminded me of the first time I realized that cats make eye contact with us They look into our soul whereas I ve never had that feeling with other animals except a gorilla at a zoo once I m an F person basically feline by nature so naturally I adored this book Nicols considers cats, the most elegant and the most mysterious of God s creatures Theintimately one seems to know them, the less predictable their behaviour If you don t agree, then perhaps this book is not for you.Nicols reminded me of the first time I realized that cats make eye contact with us They look into our soul whereas I ve never had that feeling with other animals except a gorilla at a zoo once Nicols also reminds me of the time I wondered why do cats use a litter box, while apes need to wear diapers Why is that Not to forget to mention, this book was gorgeously illustrated by Derrick Sayer.Chapter Q for Quiz was a lot of fun to find out how much of an F person one is The last chapter XYZ which is a letter he wrote to his cats, is the most heart wrenching work that I have ever read

    Not as enjoyable as the first volume and I can t believe it took me two months to read but still a sweet collection of reflections and observations about life with cats Nichols s closing love letter to his three cats was particularly poignant.

    I m a fan of Nichols garden writing This is less good It s clearly a book written by a man deeply in love with all things feline, but it tips over into the precious and the twee with depressing regularity I can t recommend it.

    Pleasing little book written by an author who clearly understands cats To all cat lovers, such as myself, it is an easily identifiable subject matter.
