From Ra in the guise of a cat in ancient Egypt to Splat the Cat in 2004, this little book covers the enormous variety of felines portrayed in paintings, prints and book illustration through the centuries. Catherine Britton tells the stories of famous cats - Walpole's cat, fiddling cats from Hey Diddle Diddle and witches' cats, but also some unexpected sightings such as the yellow cat in the Lindisfarne Gospels.
