Some of history's great figures have been "cat men," and their cats clearly contributed to their genius and legacy. The static charge from a cat's fur sparked young Nikola Tesla's interest in electricity; Isaac Newton is said to have invited the first cat flap; visitors to Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill's homes still encounter the descendants of their beloved cats; and William S. Burroughs and Andy Warhol both wrote books inspired by their feline friends. With witty profiles, quotes, and Sam Kalda's evocative full-page illustrations throughout, this book pays tribute to 30 vastly different men who nonetheless had one thing in common, an enduring love of cats.
