The home you love is where you want to be and, when you go away, the place you long to return to.

For many of us, the very heart of home is embodied in a furry little creature that purrs.

To my mind, home wouldn’t be the same without a cat.

Speaking of our furry friends … our goal here at The Novel Cat is to enjoy life at a cat’s pace. A few adventures every now and then, but lots of quiet time. Good food a few times a day, plenty of naps (and reading time), and as much fresh air as possible.

Here, we celebrate everyday beauty, peaceful pursuits, and quiet places … one story, one image, at a time.

“I love cats because I love my home and after a while they become its visible soul.”
Jean Cocteau
