Look what the cat dragged in from the Middle Ages – a curious compendium of cats unlike any you’ve ever lapped up before. Medieval Cats is the purr-fect bedside companion for lonely cat people and cat-holics (not to be confused with Catholics, obviously) and hiss-terical to boot.

For more than a millennium, between 500 and 1500 AD, a myriad of medieval manuscripts and artworks painted an unpretty picture of cats as nothing more than lazy, selfish, and vicious. (How dare they!) Centuries later, the legacy of these masterpieces live on, shining a bright light on the dark age of cats, and telling a brand-new story of their paw-some glory.

From bum-licking to devil-tricking, cat-fighting to nip-dribbling, Medieval Cats is a claw-filled clowder of more than 200 glorious full-colour felines getting up to no good – and a whole lot more! – from ye olde times of yester yore.
