Just finished reading the story of Dewey Readmore Books, the library cat at the Spencer, Ohio library. Wonderful story!

I'd rather barque up the wrong tree than tree up the wrong barque.

That sounds like the Latin sentance my Aunt (Classics teacher) used to quote:

"Malo malo malo malo."

Which apparently translates as "I would rather be stuck up a fruit tree than be a malefactor caught in incriminating circumstances."

That was a sweet book. It made me cry harder maybe than most people since on August 11 I lost my beautiful Kittibits, who looked a great deal like Dewey and died in a very similar fashion. So I was sort of gutted all over again.

I take it that it doesn't include the story that one of the Mediaeval Popes who decided that cats belonged to Satan, so he banned them in a Papal Bull.

Lack of cats = lots more rats = Black Death.

Ufffs, P'ter, what a series of events to sweep through Europe. I did not know that it was due to a pope's decision. Is it really true??

Cats have their purposes

It wasn't the only factor of course.

A series of about three very cold wet years with rotten/no harvests reduced the resistance of the peasantry already 'living' below subsistance level.

But given a more reasonable feline population there wouldn't have been quite so many rodents to act as the plague vector.

The middle ages were not kind to cats--both Christians and Pagans burned them for various reasons and it's just plain heartbreaking to read about.
The current pope is apparently a cat fan.

I have found out recently that the Egyptians, who were supposed to have venerated cats and mummified them, were actually selling to the market! Apparently there was a vogue for mummified cats, and these bozos were mummifying kittens, going out and killing cats to keep a stock of them, and in the end mummifying darn near anything. Some of the 'cat' mummies have been x-rayed and found to contain frog bones!

Makes you wish you could go back in time, yell 'Stop that!' at the folks, and rescue all the cats... though that'd be awfully costly in kitty litter!

Oh yes indeed. And the supposed Egyptian veneration of cats wasn't very humane either. I saw a documentary recently, and all mummified cats they x-rayed had broken necks, e.g. they were sacrificial victims for the cult of Bastet.

Uh--P'ter, there is a connection between the money that we "kneed" (or is it knead?) and how many the publisher will buy. If they don't buy them, no money in writing them. And if they don't sell well (by which I mean new copies--at least paperbacks) the publisher doesn't care how many people actually read them as used books or from the library--the sales numbers don't support them buying more. It's all pretty brutal and with the current economic situation, it's become worse. For instance, for those of you in Great Britain, you'll probably have to order online because the British publisher that's bought every one of our other collabs passed on Barque Cats 1--not because it isn't a good book, because it is--but just because of the sales figures.

Has anyone read the excerpt from Barque Cats at the end of Deluge: Book Three of the Twins of Petaybee?

I’ve only read a few sentences myself, because I’m been very busy since graduating college with finding an apartment in Fredonia where I’ll be heading for graduate school. From what I’ve read so far the new book series looks very exciting!!

I found a lovely little cat book today (I've already e-mailed this to Eann).

It's called "100 Ways for a Cat to Find its Inner Kitten" by Celia Haddon. She's written about 8 others, inluding "100 Ways for a Cat to Train its Human".

My friends, I am not sure how much of what was at the end of Deluge will actually appear in Barque Cats. It went through three rather hairy edits for some strange reason and we rewrote a lot of it. So I hope the bits you like remained.
