1st Penguin printing paperback shows a touch of color loss at still sharp tips. 240 pp text browned but not brittle. It was, of all things, a white Christmas Eve, when Cleveland Amory, self-confessed curmudgeon and confirmed dog-owner, found himself standing in a deserted alley trying to rescue a dirty, injured, starving, decidedly unfriendly cat. The result of this encounter is the subject of this book. It tells the enchanting story of Amory, who undergoes the transition from a life on independence to a life of being cat-owned. With glimpses of Amory's cat's memorable meetings with notables such as George C. Scott and Cary Grant, and fascinating tidbits about the history of cats, this is an irresistible book for cat lovers and non cat lovers alike.
