This work has three major sub-goals: first, to give a history of cats in general from earliest recorded times to the present. Second, to cover 26 different cats (or cat species) in alphabetical order, so the reader has a representative feline for each of the alphabet's 26 letters. Third, to accomplish these ends through poetry. The poetic mode was chosen to give reader a little different slant on each covered cat's special qualities and temperament. An additional prose portion gives the reader a straightforward description of each cat's natural territory and a brief coverage of its special talents and challenges. The overall goal was to make learning about cats both fun and educational and make us more fully appreciate our feline friends.
