Barks and Purrs

I quickly read Barks and Purrs by Colette (free at Amazon), the fabulously scandalous French woman who wrote Gigi. I’m not sure what it’s called in French but it’s delightful! It’s a quick little play with Toby-Dog who is a pug and Kiki-the-Demure who is the supposedly superior cat. They banter about, but what’s interesting is they cite the literature and herbology and such a range of intellect and yet they wonder why “He” scratches at pieces of paper all day and why “She” digs up non-animal things out of the ground.

Quite cute, but a lot packed into it about the nature of humanity and knowledge and all sorts of ideas.
