Cat Thursday - Authors and Cats (35)


Welcome to the weekly meme that celebrates the wonders and sometime hilarity of cats! Join us by posting a favorite LOL cat pic you may have come across, famous cat art or even share with us pics of your own beloved cat(s). It's all for the love of cats! Enjoy! (share your post in the Mr. Linky below)

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author and their cat(s).

I'm so behind this week! I haven't even had the time to visit your posts from last week. I'm so sorry! I will have to do double duty in the next couple of days.

This month's author is P.D. James who celebrated her 94th birthday on August 3. This is a drawing of her with her cat by New York Times Artist David Levine. Brilliant! 


About the author
P. D. James is the author of twenty books, most of which have been filmed and broadcast on television in the United States and other countries. She spent thirty years in various departments of the British Civil Service, including the Police and Criminal Law Department of Great Britain's Home Office. She has served as a magistrate and as a governor of the BBC. In 2000 she celebrated her eightieth birthday and published her autobiography, Time to Be in Earnest. The recipient of many prizes and honors, she was created Baroness James of Holland Park in 1991. She lives in London and Oxford.

Awards: International Crime Writing Hall of Fame 2008; Grand Master Award from Mystery Writers of America, 1999; Diamond Dagger from British Crime Writers' Association, 1987.

Author of Death Comes To Pemberley, Children of Men and many more.

Which reminds me...I simply must read Death Comes to Pemberley! It's coming to Masterpiece on PBS at the end of October/early November. Have you seen this?!

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  2. The fluffy beast in P.D's lap reminds me of Rockykins in an 'I wants attention' mood! So cute!

  3. Love the drawing ! I didn't know PD James had reached that age. I love her novels and I've read Death comes to Pemberley, so I'll make sure to watch the show :)

  4. Great drawing! I've only read her Children of Men, but I thought it was brilliant (far, far, FAR better than the movie!). Must make room on the TBR list for Death Comes to Pemberley!
