Book Beginnings is a weekly meme hosted by Rose City Reader. We share the first sentence (or so) of the book we are reading, along with our initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
The great day for the cat must be placed some two thousand years ago in Ancient Egypt, when cats enjoyed a position of special privilege, and had long held it.
I have loved cats for most of my life, and lived with them for many years. I don't have a feline companion at the moment, but this summer I started volunteering at Ohio Alley Cat Rescue, which is just down the street from me. We usually have 40-50 kittens and cats in residence on any day, so I can get my kitty cuddles frequently! Thus I was intrigued by the title of this book and bought it sight unseen from Powells.com, my favorite bookstore.
