SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

Poetry for Cats, by Henry Beard

Poetry for Cats: The Definitive Anthology of Distinguished Feline Verse - Henry Beard

The poems here are all parodies of the poems on which they are based.  The subjects are turned to matters of interest to cats.  (Matthew Arnold's Dover Beach turns into a meditation on Dover sole, for example.) 


I got this as a "stocking stuffer" one year, and was much amused.


I think my favorite is a parody of Leaves of Grass, purportedly by Walt Whitman's cat.
