This little book is about cats; cats of all shapes, sizes and colours, and specifically about those that have shared their lives with the great and well-respected astronomer, Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS, over a lifetime of 80 years.
This is Patrick’s very personal account of the cats who have been part of his family, beginning with Bonnie, who died at the grand old age of twenty, through to Jeannie and Ptolemy, the two beloved felines that he lives with currently.
The fascinating and engrossing text is complemented by personal photographs of Sir Patrick, his adored mother, Gertrude (also a cat-lover), and the many cats that have filled Patrick’s life with love and companionship.
Reveals a delightful and charming side to the man who has attained international status as a writer, researcher, radio commentator and television presenter, and who is credited with having done more than any other to raise the profile of astronomy.

Following the sad news that Sir Patrick had passed, I thought this book would be a little memento about the great man and his love of cats. It's has lots of Photo's of him and his feline companions and is well worth a read. Also; its great that purchasing this book will benefit the cats.
