Alphacats are a special breed: they are cats with a pedigree (well, most of them) and painted almost hair by hair, by scientific illustrator Gabriella Gallerani, in strict alphabetical order. Beautifully rendered in full colour, each one has its own letter on which to climb, hide, stretch, play, yawn or simply show off. Thus, A is Angora, B is Bengal, C is Ceylon, D is Devon Rex...but Alphacats are also the cats that have made history - and literature, movies, cartoons, music and the happiness of writers, scientists, kings and politicians. The names of over 300 'alpha' cats, with just as many witty stories and feline anecdotes, creates a repertoire of the unique and memorable characters that make each cat worthy of a Name. From Boise, Hemingway's favourite, to Pulcinella, who inspired Scarlatti's Cat's Fugue sonata, from Brilliant, Louis XV's beautiful Angora to Socks, the Clintons' pet during their White House tenure, each letter of the alphabet has many inspiring names.
