Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - December 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 'BbaCothr Ml.. I. Humane Thing To Do 1 By Sam Wclsk Mumow SocleW When Christmas' shopping for an animal 'lover or pet' otvner, don't 'overlook books. And, if you fall int cither of these catagorles, 'you will- undoubtedly ilind at least one book for yourself, as there are many to choose from, One of the most enjoyable animal books, complete with terrific photographs, is "The Silent Miaow" by Paul Gallico' with photos by Susanne Szasz (Crown Any fe- line fancier will immediately recognize the book from the ti- tle alone, as being one about cats, as cats very often do practice this type of beguil- ing ;behavior upon their hu- mans, i .However, this book is, un- usual in that it was apparently written by a feline house pet and merely translated by Mr. Gallico It is written in first person by the feline author as a textbook and educational guide for cats and kittens who are searching for a home with people and how, to conquer such a home and its human occupants. She very diligently and technically covers all subjects cat would need to know in order to successfully "take over" such a household. She includes instructions on how to get oneself Into the house in the first place, then how to manage men, women and children, and on to how to es- tablisli personal territory such as chairs and beds' She offers information on "more serious subjects such as veterinari- raising a family, feeding and manners. This cat's explanation of, an thoughts on, love for hu- malis and their love for her is one of the best I have ever heard or read and one that pet owners will readily relate to. A lot can be'said for this par- ticular chapter on the subject of love. It can be applied in many ways and -only a creature as intelligent as a cat, (or a person who truly understands and appreciates them, like Mr. Galileo) could ever put Into writing. i The action photos on every with captions, depict''the' an- tics, and attitudes tbat all pet owners have experienced, but have never been able to catch for lack of a camera Every cat owner (oops, cat- owned-person) will identify himself many times over in his behavior toward his feline friend as 'described by this highly intelligent pet, It is also fascinating to compare this to your ovyn fe- line and to realize just how much alike all cats seem to be or at least Irad you to be- lieve they are. Everyone should read "All Creatures Great And Small" by James Herriot, veterinary surgeon (St'jMartin's This book deals 'with people and animals and of course there is no; better combination for story telling. Dr. Herriot shows a great deal of insight into people; as to how they differ because of background, locale or occupation You get the feeling that he likes people as much as he does the ani- mals he is treating. Each chapter tells a sepa- story ci the people and the animals involved in the ex- periences of Dr. Herriot as'a practicing veterinarian in a rural community of northern England. Dr Herriot does a marvel- ous job of conveying to the reader his love and compas- sion for animals, his work, the appreciation for the country surrounding him re- spect and' enjoyment of: the in his veteri- nary practice: As I said before, everyone animal non- pet owner, avid reader or any- one will truly enjoy this warm and lovely book about a life's work and the work he, loves. And without trying to lecture or give statis- tics, this author helps us to better understand people, appreciate our country, 'and Have feeling for the creatures on this earth.
