The pictures in here are beautiful but it is the quotes that make the book. Some of my favorites:

Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want. --Joseph Wood Krutch

In ancient times cats were worshiped as gods; they have not forgotten this. -- Terry Pratchett

It is impossible to keep a straight face in the presence of one or more kittens. -- Cynthia E. Varnado

Great gift for cat lovers.
