Synopsis

This little book is about cats; cats of all shapes, sizes and colours, and specifically about those that have shared their lives with the great and well-respected astronomer, Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS, over a lifetime of 80 years.
This is Patrick’s very personal account of the cats who have been part of his family, beginning with Bonnie, who died at the grand old age of twenty, through to Jeannie and Ptolemy, the two beloved felines that he lives with currently.
The fascinating and engrossing text is complemented by personal photographs of Sir Patrick, his adored mother, Gertrude (also a cat-lover), and the many cats that have filled Patrick’s life with love and companionship.
Reveals a delightful and charming side to the man who has attained international status as a writer, researcher, radio commentator and television presenter, and who is credited with having done more than any other to raise the profile of astronomy.

Independent Reviews

This jolly book ... is rather fun and warm in its spirit.
Pet Owners Association

The word on the street was that there was no 'book of the fair' this year. Clearly few people had made it across to the Veloce stand, then, where there stood not just the book of the fair, but the book of the century – Miaow! Cats Really are Nicer Than People by Sir Patrick Moore.
The Bookseller

Funny, insightful and very touching, Miaow! Cats Really Are Nicer Than People has been written by a cat lover for other cat lovers, who will appreciate it the most.
The Press

… a charming read that would make an excellent cat present for a cat lover- though you may be tempted to keep the book for yourself...
CatProtection

Beautifully illustrated with photographic treasures from his own collection at home...
SMHBooks

…book of the century
Bents and Notes

This is a beautiful work… [there is a] wealth of optimistic and substantial, heart-felt emotion that Sir Patrick has managed to convey within its pages.
A delightful book with plenty of illustrations throughout, no hesitation recommending it!'
The book has lovely photos and anecdotes, written in [Patrick Moore's] particularly distinctive 'voice'.
It really conveys the magical, spiritual bond that can exist between human and animal.
