Les Chats by Francois Augustin Paradis de Moncrif, here translated by Reginald Bretnor, is a collection of 11 letters and 10 poems on casts and there ways which was first published in 1727. The book was much loved by cat people but was also the subject of many heartless satires and skits, so much so that the author took it out of his collected works.
