Cat Thursday - Authors and Cats (44)

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).

Happy Birthday, Joyce Carol Oates! June 16 is the birthday of one of the biggest cat lover authors. Here is a video of Oates at the 2014 New Yorker Festival. She is reading a poem she wrote, An Ode to Cats. There's a screen at her back showing her beloved cat, Cherie, on which she based her children's book, Naughty Cherie, and who she mentions as her collaborator in her writing.

Here's a shot of Oates with one of the two Bengal cats owned by cat-breeder and filmmaker Anthony Hutcherson, Jungletrax Flowmaster.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. I love Joyce Carol Oates ! Not only is she a cat lover, but also an excellent writer who can pull off different styles with apparent ease :)

  2. It's so cool to find out that there are so many authors who love cats!
