Ailurophile, meaning cat-lover, comes from the Greek ailuros, meaning tail-waver. (Just picture it! The fi rst-ever cat enters Greece, gently waving a friendly tail aloft. Every fi nger points excitedly. Oh, look! Ailuros!)

This is the tale of an ailurophile and her collection of cats and friends in England and America, told partly in letters. Shy kindly Fred and the English catteries. Soul-mate Jenny with her pure-bred Siamese Black Paw Gang who cleaned up at cat shows all over Europe. Sallys cats would have died fi rst. She joined a cat rescue group and collected an assortment of her own, called the Cataclysm. Their letters describe champions and moggies, local doings and loco cats, contretemps, calicoes and cat shows, all with style, observation, and wit.
