Description

'I reach out a claw And catch a thread in your best Shirt. It snags; I yawn.' 'Surprise! I can jump Through the newspaper while you Are still reading it!' The cat has been with us since time began. Enigmatic, independent, surprising, single-minded, loving - cats are all these things and impose themselves on our lives. The haiku is an ancient and honourable Japanese verse form - three lines, 17 syllables, encapsulating a vision of the essence of the thing, scene or person being written about. Cat Haiku presents cats as you've never seen them before. In a series of brilliant vignettes, Deborah Coates gets inside the minds of our cats and comes up with some surprising revelations. You will never look at your (or anyone else's) cat the same way again. First published 2001
