Sunday Wisdom from the Daredevil Book for Cats
Okay - this is going to be the last week on Sunday wisdom from Prince Cuddles. I have given you enough teasers from the book - you will just have to get your humans to go out and buy it for you.
This week, I wanted to leave Prince Cuddles on a high and we will be looking at Famous Cat Lovers in history.
Many famous composers exploited cats remorselessly in their search for a tune you could hum.
Frederick Chopin took notes as his cat danced across the keyboard of his piano. It was the first run through of the "Cat Waltz".
Scarlatti's kitty, Pulcinella, did a turn around the harpsichord to produce the Fugue in G Minor, L499, aka the "Cat's Fugue".
But did either animal get royalties from these projects? Not on your nelly. Neither moggy saw a single red cent.
I have really enjoyed these Sunday sessions with Prince Cuddles and the Daredevil Book for Cats. I hope you have too!
