Authors like Andrea Maria Dusl, Julia Franck, Christine Kaufmann, Ruth Klüger, Eva Menasse, Ingrid Noll, Lilo Wanders as well as numerous other cat lovers from German-speaking countries can’t all be wrong: Cats are not only the most literary of all animals, they also have unmistakably unique characters. They are unrivaled as purring heating pads, imaginative jokers and compassionate housemates. Their taste is incorruptible, whether they are dealing with cat food, new family members, dogs, new lovers or potential husbands.
Ruth Rybarski has collected 30 as of yet unpublished love declarations to cats. A must for all cat lovers and all those who are thinking of becoming one.
