“Forget cute kittens in martini glasses or amusing fat fluffballs spreadeagled on rugs; this is the cat as documentary subject, doing cat things such as sneaking in through pantry windows, looking disdainfully down from walls, fixing owners with looks of appalled reproach from pet-show pillows and generally going about their business projecting a level of scorn that would put Anna Wintour to shame. Wonderful.”
- The Times
“Books of cats are hardly in short supply, but this one is a little different. It collects the feline work of the celebrated portrait photographer Jane Brown. Forget cute kittens in martini glasses or amusing fat fluff-balls spread-eagled in on rugs; this is the cat as documentary subject, doing cat things such as sneaking in through pantry windows, looking disdainfully down from walls, fixing owners with looks of appalled reproach from pet-show pillows and generally going about their business projecting a level of scorn that would put Anna Wintour to shame. Wonderful.”
- Nancy Durant, The Times Books of the Year
