2016 Reprint of 1957 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. This charming story is drawn from the true adventures of Sarton's own cat, and recounts his evolution from a stray to a gentleman cat, and finally, his emergence as a Fur Person. "A Fur Person is a cat who had decided to stay with people as long as he lives. This can only happen if a human being has imagined a part of himself into a cat just as the cat has imagined part of himself into a human being." Illustrated by Barbara Knox.
