Poetry from Scratch

A Kitten's Book of Verse
Jennifer McCartney
Book cover for Poetry from Scratch by Jennifer McCartney
The newest entry in the feline literary canon is here… so pee on this, cat poet wannabes

Hipster cats, stay-at-home-mom cats, windowsill cats, and outdoor cats—you’ll find them all here, immortalized in prose about, for, and sometimes by, cats. With a Brooklyn edge, author Jennifer McCartney ups the cool quotient on this burgeoning genre.

There once was a cat who loved books

He liked bookshelves that had lots of nooks

He thought especially nice

The tomes about mice

One page and the kitty was hooked

From limericks to beat poems, haikus to sonnets, riffs on famous verse to original blank verse, there is something here for every cat lover to enjoy.
