Minka And Curdy : The enchanting story of a writer and her cats, Paperback / softback Book

Minka And Curdy : The enchanting story of a writer and her cats Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback


Victoria, a real tyrant of a cat, spent so many years training Mrs Bell to be her ideal hostess that, at her death, Mrs Bell feels it would be disrespectful to replace that formidable creature.

But her resolve wears down and she agrees to take a marmalade kitten.

No sooner has she done so she is offered a Siamese that she simply cannot resist.

This is the story of a writer seduced by the charms of two very different kittens: Curdy, lively and mischievous, and Minka, imperious in manner and in gesture (and who cannot stand the sight of the ginger upstart).

One of the most enchanting books about cats ever written, MINKA AND CURDY describes their adventures- and misadventures- and the merry dance they lead Mrs Bell.

Illustrated throughout with line drawings, it is the perfect companion for all lovers of cats and all admirers of Antonia White.
