Those who have been contents to regard the cat merely aesthetically, as a mouse-killer, or fantastically, as an adjunct of witchcraft, will doubtless read this book with some surprise. Svend Fleuron has imagined a cat more or less cut off from relationship with men, bringing up her kittens in the fields, against all the odds that any wild animal, surrounded by the destructive terrors of nature, has to face. If this novel were a true picture of human life, it would show, relentlessly and bitterly, how nature overcame the mother and her children. As, however, it is a picture of cat life, the end is a happy one. This book contains classic material dating back to the 1900s and before. The content has been carefully selected for its interest and relevance to a modern audience.
