Cat Pies- Feline Historical Trivia by Grace Elliot

Cat Pies – Feline Historical Trivia

By Grace Elliot

I loved the history behind this book, if not what I always found out as I read it. Did they really make Cat Meat Pies in Victorian England? Read the book, the answer is in there. The history of the men that went from neighborhood to neighborhood to sell meat to cat owners is also in there, fascinating stuff.

How did black cats go from being worshiped in Egypt to being considered bad luck? Medieval Europe had a lot to do with it. Read all about it in this fascinating book along with other cat trivia.

I could not put this book down as I went from fascinating fact to the next. The veterinarian practices have come a long way. “Cats are no longer treated as small dogs.” Is one line from the book, if you can imagine that was how veterinarians treated cats that were actually brought in, most weren’t.

If you find history fun and interesting, if you find cats as fascinating a subject as I do, please, pick up this book. Five full stars for the fun and careful way this subject was presented. But do be careful if you are tender hearted, there is a story at the end that may cause you tears, there are facts in this book that may cause the same, but it was so much fun to read in spite of all that.
