It has long been suspected that behind every great human is an even greater cat.  Now the truth will out, as meticulously documented by that great feline historian, Norton--aka, The Cat Who Went to Paris--and his cohorts, Peter Gethers and Norman Stiles. The world knows all about Nathan Hale.  But where are the tributes to Nathan Hale's cat, who uttered the immortal words, "I regret that I have but nine lives to give for my country"?  Where are the biographies of Sigmund Freud's cat, who changed the twentieth century with his discover that the primary motivating factor behind all behavior is the urge to rub up against furniture?  Why do historians shy away from Marie Antoinette's cat, who actually caused the French Revolution with her dismissive bon mot, "Let them eat dry food"?  This extraordinary and important book is already receiving advance raves.  No less an observer of feline nature than Oprah Winfrey's cat has gone on record as saying, "Every man and woman who cares about the future of the planet must buy Historical Cats.  Hey, where are you going with that bowl?!  I'm still hungry!!"
