Celebrate International Cat Day – 8 August – with some im-paw-sibly fabulous fiction.

More than a quarter of Australian households have them, they make up about 15% of all global internet traffic, they spend half of their lives sleeping (and a fair chunk of what’s left grooming) and they have the largest eyeballs in proportion head size of any mammal. Fanatics are known as ailurophiles, haters are felinophobes; groups of kittens are called kindles while grown-ups roam in clowders. But, hey! If you’ve landed here, you probably knew that already. To celebrate International Cat Day, here we’ve gathered some of the world’s finest literature featuring felines. Fur real.
