Cat Thursday: Authors and Cats (128) Elizabeth Bishop, Poet

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

The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author, pictured with their/a cat(s), or guest posts by cat loving authors who also (sometimes) write about cats.

I've learned of so many authors and poets I otherwise might not have known about if not searching for authors and cats for these posts.

Poet Elizabeth Bishop is one of them. Turns out, she was a great lover of cats. Her childhood cat was named Minnow. Serendipity! I also had a cat named Minnow when I was a child. I love poetry so I will definitely be seeking out her works.

Elizabeth Bishop (February 08, 1911 - October 06, 1979) was an American poet and writer from Worcester, Massachusetts. She was the Poet Laureate of the United States from 1949 to 1950, a Pulitzer Prize winner in 1956. and a National Book Award Winner for Poetry in 1970. She is considered one of the most important and distinguished American poets of the 20th century. (Goodreads)
