But the wildest of all the wild animals was the Cat. He walked by himself, and all places were alike to him.
Cats have long been considered creatures of mystery and magic. Worshipped as deities in some cultures, feared as harbingers of bad fortune in others, it’s little surprise that their enigmatic charm continues to capture our imaginations today.
This classic collection of the most beloved cat tales includes Saki’s ‘Tobermory’, in which a straight-talking cat leaves dinner guests aghast yet entranced; a Norse fairy tale involving a spectacular feline rescue; ‘The Dragon Tamers’ by E. Nesbit; and H. P. Lovecraft’s strange story ‘The Cats of Ulthar’; amongst many others to enjoy for years to come.
