Editorial Reviews

Review

“A charming gift for all cat-loving historians. . . . Though a fun read, Medieval Cats is also a thought-provoking work that allows us to explore the history of people ambivalent attitudes toward animals living in their own sphere.”
(Ken Kurihara, Fordham University Sixteenth Century Journal)

This book is a MUST HAVE for all cat lovers! It is also for history buffs, who happen to love cats, like me. Kathleen Walker-Meikle has worked hard in her field of animals and medicine in the middle ages and this book shows her love of the topic. With illustrations and explanations of the cat, it is awe-inspiring.

Cats! I really had not realized how often cats appear in authentic Medieval illumination. I bought this little book because I'm a history buff, and enjoy recreating scrolls for SCA illumination. Many of my clients want their cats shown, and here are excellent examples of how to do it.

This book of images and writings about medieval cats from illuminated manuscripts at the British Museum is an utter joy. It should provide many animal lovers with a great (and informational) holiday gift that will often surprise.

Absolutely beautiful book with wonderful Medieval marginalia.......would have liked more text, but the book is well worth the
price for the images alone.
