About the Author

Cleveland Amory (1917-1998) wrote many highly successful books about animals, including The Cat Who Came for Christmas, The Cat and the Curmudgeon, and The Best Cat Ever, as well as such widely praised works of social history as The Proper Bostonians, The Last Resorts, and Who Killed Society? He founded the Fund for Animals in 1967.


"The Cat Who Came for Christmas arrived on the one day I was home between two extended overseas trips and my desk was piled high. So some reluctance touched my decision even to take a quick glance at the formidable pile of galleys. One and a half hours later I was still reading about that darned cat. It is that kind of book. That kind of cat, too."--Walter Cronkite
"Cleveland Amory has probably done more for more animals than any other person in this country. But what he has done here, for this particular animal, is in some ways just as remarkable. He has written a book which, from start to finish I found powerfully compelling, an extraordinary combination of humor and philosophy -- both his own and his cat's."--Norman Cousins
"This extraordinary true story will touch your head and your heart and your funny bone-all at once. I predict this book will not just have nine lives, but nine generations of lives."--Parade
