Thomasina (Paperback)The Cat Who Thought She Was a God
by Paul Gallico
Thomasina, like Jenny of The Abandoned, Paul Gallico’s other great feline heroine (Jenny is Thomasina’s great-aunt), tells her own story in her own way, witty, charming, divine, and sometimes as sharp as an unsheathed claw. Thomasina is a cat for the ages. Thomasina is a sheer delight.
This is a story that cats would love as much as I do!
The portrait of Thomasina, with her sublime detachment and egoism, is a triumph of whimsically creative art.
Highly romantic, highly sentimental, highly extravagant, but to cat lovers particularly, highly enjoyable.
—Rose Feld, New York Herald Tribune Book Review
A zoophile’s delight...a pleasant fantasy.
—Hal Borland, The New York Times Book Review
Gallico's cats have been burned in my brain since childhood; they seemed so real to me and Thomasina still stands out.
—Alison Flood, The Guardian
