The Making of a Crazy Cat Lady By Rodders
Paperback: $5.93
Prints in 3-5 business days
I find myself embracing the title ‘Crazy Cat Lady’. This was never part of the plan. In this book I muse on the more famous members of the club to which it seems I have joined. I wonder... More > about men. Why is there is no equivalent ‘crazy’ term for them? I get a little bit annoyed about this and try to understand how women, but not men are called crazy in the feline context and end up dipping my toes into writings about the feminization of madness. Here I learn about the ancient art of womb wafting and I meet Edith Lanchester. After this I settle down again and marvel at the process by which I morphed from someone who did not care much for pets, to someone who is head over heels about her feline friends. I then share the strategies I think my boys employed to train me well. Finally, I speculate about the future and think about whether living with cats is just something I will do with these boys because they are so special, or whether perhaps cats change people, fundamentally.< Less

“Within two years of Albert's death a violent disturbance in foreign politics put Victoria's faithfulness to a crucial test. The fearful Schleswig-Holstein dispute, which had been smouldering... More > for more than a decade, showed signs of bursting out into conflagration. The complexity of the questions at issue was indescribable. "Only three people," said Palmerston, "have ever really understood the Schleswig-Holstein business—the Prince Consort, who is dead—a German professor, who has gone mad—and I, who have forgotten all about it." But, though the Prince might be dead, had he not left a vicegerent behind him? Victoria threw herself into the seething embroilment with the vigour of inspiration. She devoted hours daily to the study of the affair in all its windings; but she had a clue through the labyrinth: whenever the question had been discussed, Albert, she recollected it perfectly, had always taken the side of Prussia. Her course was clear. She became an ardent champion of the Prussian point of view.”< Less

More > Hamilton and his wife too well to tolerate either insinuation. But we led him like a dazed being into a side office, where Mr. Jack MacKenzie promptly turned the key and took up a posture with his back against the door. "Now, Sir," he broke out sternly, "if it's neither drink, nor a scandal----" There, he stopped; for Hamilton, utterly unconscious of us, moved, rather than walked, automatically across the room. Throwing his hat down, he bowed his head over both arms above the mantel-piece. My uncle and I looked from the silent man to each other. Raising his brows in question, Mr. Jack MacKenzie touched his forehead and whispered across to me--"Mad?"< Less
