    'According to legend,' writes Hamish Whyte in his introduction, 'the Scots were the first northern people to keep cats.' Be that as it may, many Scottish poets do seem to have been much taken with cats, from Henryson and his 'Gib Hunter, Our Jolie Cat' in the 15th century to George MacBeth's 20th-century ode 'To the Flea, Combed from My Cat's Back'. With black cat illustrations by James Hutcheson.
