Synopses & Reviews
On the heels of her engaging and inventive Dogtionary
comes photographer Sharon Montrose's discerning demystification of the other side of the pet world. This humorous and affectionate photographic essay features cats of various breeds and personalities, captured with all the idiosyncrasies their human owners have come to know and love. Cationary
is filled with more than ninety images that are alphabetized by each cat's name, from A to Z, in a unique format that juxtaposes them with their dictionary-style "kitty definitions"-captions as evocative, mischievous, and telling as the pictures they accompany.
Whether it's feisty Billy (who hisses, growls, and scratches), or Parker, the complacent Cheshire Cat-type (who does a little eating, a little playing, and a great deal of sleeping), feline fanciers will recognize their own pets among these charming creatures. For them, Cationary is a gift as heady as catnip-elegant, heartwarming, and beautifully photographed.
