We must also lessen the number of theological books, and choose the best; for it is not the number of books that make the learned man; nor much reading, but good books often read, however few, make a man learned in the Scriptures and pious. – Martin Luther

The Adventures of a Cat – And a Fine Cat, Too! by Alfred Elwes

The Adventures of a Cat – And a Fine Cat, Too! by Alfred Elwes

It is a cruel wrong done to our race to exclaim, as many do, that “Cats have no attachments, no tenderness; that there is always a lurking fierceness in their hearts, which makes them forget, with the first mark of roughness or ill treatment, a thousand benefits which they may have formerly received.” I deny it wholly. I, a Cat, affirm that, with few exceptions, there are no animals more loving or more tender…How would you, dear reader, act if your tail were wantonly pulled, or if your house were to be entered by an ugly stranger without invitation? – Miss Minette Gattina, from the introduction.
