Poor Puss


    Follow the paw prints of Poor Puss to discover the tragicomedy of feline history through the ages as cats adjust to an ever-changing society. Caught up in the hysteria of witch-trials that swept the country; rejected by the Church that replaced them with ‘rat trappes,’ so ending their long tradition of vocational duty. Over the next four centuries, cats bravely clawed their way up the social ladder – out of persecution and superstition - to become the fluffy darlings of late Victorians and pampered pets of today. Poor Puss is impressively researched with more than three hundred archival pictures and entertaining anecdotal detail, as meaty as a plump mouse. You may never view your cat in the same way again!
