"Imagine a sumptuous banquet, a banquet the likes of which you have never seen. You sit in awe of the courses as they appear one by one before you. You savor the many layers of pleasure that each course provides. You linger for hours, insatiably devouring all that is placed before you. That’s Caticons by Sandy Lerner. A sumptuous banquet of art, history, literature, memorabilia and more, that will delight the senses and soul of every cat lover. A treasure they will return to throughout ALL of their nine lives." - Cat Chat with Caren and Cody
[Caticons] is a very multi-layered experience, and one that can be absorbed in as large or as small a
reading as one prefers. Through all of this, Lerner’s wry wit is evident in her commentary.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for anyone interested in the art of the cat, or its history with man. I know that I look forward to many more hours perusing it.
-- Teresa Keiger, Cat Fanciers’ Association
