Muses with fur and quirks

Freddie Mercury, Erich Kästner, Rosa Luxemburg, Raymond Chandler, Haruki Murakami, they all had one thing in common: a cat. And not only that, to some extent, they were united in their mad love for their cuddly four-legged companions.

Muses have often been the cause and the subject of the stories that make up the library of world literature. But it’s surprising how many times it’s a cat that takes on the role of the muse. Even for really tough men. Ernest Hemingway’s love for cats even went so far that he specifically bred a certain type of cat: the famous Cuban Hemingway cat, sporting one extra toe.

Andreas Schlieper and Heike Reinecke uncovered these stories and anecdotes about the co-existence of writers and felines. Some of it you might have guessed, other things are surprisingly new, much of it will make you chuckle and marvel.

Andreas Schlieper

Andreas Schlieper, born in Düsseldorf in 1951, has been publishing works of non-fiction for a few years, including »Rufus – The Cat Philosopher« (original German title: »Rufus – Der Katzenphilosoph«) or »Tractatus Satanicus – The Devil’s Story, Told by Himself« (original German title: »Tractatus Satanicus – Die Geschichte des Teufels, von ihm selbst erzählt«). For many years, Reinecke and Schlieper have been sharing their life in Düsseldorf with a cat, at the moment with a black-and-white tomcat called Gustav.
