Amados Gatos

Amados Gatos - José Jorge Letria

Amados Gatos, or "Beloved Cats", is book of short stories inspired by the cats of various famous people, mainly writers. The stories portray a deeply intimate, symbiotic relationship that I suspect people who don't have and love cats will have trouble understanding. I adore cats and have felt exactly what it means to have them as companions, so while I enjoyed reading this book, I do wish the author had balanced the nostalgic, sometimes tragic tales with a little bit of the happiness he would sometimes mention, but which remained largely unexplored.

 

For those that are interested in the relationship between writers and their cats, I recommend the website "Writers and Kitties", which is sort of like this book in pictorial form, while also showing that look of pride and love most people have when they're with their cats.
