Delightful. Plain and simple.

I love this book. It tells the story of Kuching, a wise cat who is well versed in the world, and Sunshine, his younger charge who has a rather adverse fear of anything dealing with family. Kuching helps to advise young Sunshine in the ways of the world as he purses the slinky Siamese Sirikit, discovers the rapture of catnip, and tries to figure out just what it is with humans. This book is full of puns and wordplay, and offers a totally believeable view of a cat's world. Don't miss it!

The surprise of my life

My husband bought me "The Way of the Cat" because I love cats. To my great surprise and joy, I discovered the best piece of literature I have ever read (I am in my 50's, and very well read!). I am only sad to discover that I cannot find more by DJ Enright in this vein, and that there is little hope of more, since Enright was born in 1920. So far I haven't been able to find out if he is still alive. "The Way of the Cat" is a beautiful example of poetry in prose. I suppose a cat-hater would never pick up the book. What a shame. This is a book for people who love WORDS and the brilliance of intelligent humor. Another shame is that the book is out of print. It should, without delay, be published again. It is beautiful in every sense of the word.
