Cat Thursday - Authors and Cats (53)


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! (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 with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).


Katherine Anne Porter (b. May 15, 1890 - d. September 18, 1980) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist, essayist, short story writer, novelist, and political activist. She is known for her penetrating insight; her works deal with dark themes such as betrayal, death and the origin of human evil. (Goodreads)

I think I have only heard her name in passing. I know two of her novels I've heard of are Ship of Fools and Pale Horse, Pale Rider. Definitely going to have to check out her work, especially now that I know she was a cat lover. =^.^=

What about you..have you read any of her books?

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!

  5. I had to laugh looking at that picture as having had cats I can quite understand the need for those decorative eggs (they are decorative eggs, right?) to be in a glass case.

  6. Oh goodness, you just know they were setting up a publicity shot and her cat just couldn't be bothered to care if it jumped into the shot!
