This enchanting story and classic of cat literature is drawn from the true adventures of Tom Jones, May Sarton's own cat. Prior to making the author's acquaintance, he is a fiercely independent, nameless Cat About Town. Growing tired of his vagabond lifestyle, however, he concludes that there might be some appeal in giving up his freedom for a home. Finally, a house materializes that does seem acceptable and so do the voices that inhabit it. It is here that he begins his transformation into a genuine Fur Person. Sarton's book is one of the most beloved stories ever written about the joys and tribulations inherent in sharing one's life with a cat. It is now reissued in a gorgeous edition featuring David Canright's beautiful illustrations.
