The Little Furry Muse Recommends A Book About Cats

In which The Little Furry Muse proves, once again, that she really is the star of this particular roadshow. Or sideshow. Yeah, sideshow might be a slightly more accurate description. With great disdain for my terrible record of book recommending abilities, she also makes it very clear that she approves of this particular book about cats. Although maybe not my reading so much.

With her able assistance supervision, I get into my reading aloud groove once again, although not in pyjamas this time. I’ve already shown off my Mercaticorn nightie, after all, so I’m not sure I can top that one.

I also get slightly horrified by the idea that it’s been twenty years since I saw Cats in London, and sort out everyone’s birthday presents for the cat lovers in their life.

How about you, lovely people? Have you read Old Possum’s Books of Practical Cats, or seen Cats? Did you enjoy it? And what are your favourite pieces of fun verse? let me know below!

    I read Practical Cats about a hundred years ago, and I liked it then. It might be a bit too twee for me now. For fun verse I can only recommend the work of Wendy Cope, of which this is a small sample:

      Aw, it’s a very sweet read! I love it, but I do know what you mean. 🙂 I love those little snippets of Wendy Cope, though – shall have to look for more!

    Layla cracks me up! She was totally doing the camera stare for a bit, but I thought she was truly captivated . . . right up until she left, of course.

    I’ve only read portions of Practical Cats over the years, and it’s one that’s fallen off my radar but now I’m thinking I should probably pick up a copy.

      I find it such a fun read – the language is so playful. And yes – Layla was not impressed with my delivery! She is quite the diva 😉

        Maybe next time you can add mime action. But make sure you film it so we can all . . . um . . . enjoy it as much as Layla does.

          Layla despairs of her human. She does.
