Elusive, elegant, humorous, independent, the cat is one of the great mysteries of nature. In these brief meditations on the spiritual, physical, and metaphysical life of the cat, Leonard Michaels gives us this unfathomable creature as we have never before quite seen it, and yet as we have always known it to be. With a keen eye and an inimitable style, he portrays for us eating cats, sleeping cats, walking cats, and thinking cats. In prose that consistently surpises and delights, he evokes an array of emotions, from jealousy to love to feelings that go beyond the human. While the mystery of the cat can never be ultimately defined, Michaels comes as close as possible to revealing its essence. In doing so, he illuminates our own desires and longings for transcendence.
