In Defence of Cats

 

Recently, I’ve gotten into the cat-sitting business. April has been pretty hectic so far, as I have been up and down Amsterdam taking care of all sorts of cats.

How could I still be hooked on them? How can they still be releasing books, over a decade after I started reading them?
