    1. Both of her parents were British her father, who had been crippled in World War I, was a clerk in the Imperial Bank of Persia her mother had been a nurse In 1925, lured by the promise of getting rich through maize farming, the family moved to the British colony in Southern Rhodesia now Zimbabwe Like other women writers from southern African who did not graduate from high school such as Olive Schreiner and Nadine Gordimer , Lessing made herself into a self educated intellectual In 1937 she moved to Salisbury, where she worked as a telephone operator for a year At nineteen, she married Frank Wisdom, and had two children A few years later, feeling trapped in a persona that she feared would destroy her, she left her family, remaining in Salisbury Soon she was drawn to the like minded members of the Left Book Club, a group of Communists who read everything, and who did not think it remarkable to read Gottfried Lessing was a central member of the group shortly after she joined, they married and had a son.During the postwar years, Lessing became increasingly disillusioned with the Communist movement, which she left altogether in 1954 By 1949, Lessing had moved to London with her young son That year, she also published her first novel, The Grass Is Singing, and began her career as a professional writer.In June 1995 she received an Honorary Degree from Harvard University Also in 1995, she visited South Africa to see her daughter and grandchildren, and to promote her autobiography It was her first visit since being forcibly removed in 1956 for her political views Ironically, she is welcomed now as a writer acclaimed for the very topics for which she was banished 40 years ago.In 2001 she was awarded the Prince of Asturias Prize in Literature, one of Spain s most important distinctions, for her brilliant literary works in defense of freedom and Third World causes She also received the David Cohen British Literature Prize She was on the shortlist for the first Man Booker International Prize in 2005 In 2007 she was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature Extracted from the pamphlet A Reader s Guide to The Golden Notebook Under My Skin, HarperPerennial, 1995 Full text available on dorislessing.

    2. Em Abril de 2005, entrou na minha vida uma pequenina bola de pelo. Tinha dois meses e, em poucos dias, curou-me daquela doença a que os médicos chamam depressão e que, tal como noutros casos, não passava de desalento, tristeza, ou mero cansaço. Em Dezembro de 2013 partiu, curando-me pela segunda vez (não de uma "doença", como a anterior, mas de um grande desgosto), apesar de ficar com o coração partido pela sua perda (uma dor amortece outra). Durante o tempo que me dedicou ensinou-me a [...]

    3. there exists within me, i am not ashamed to admit, a crazy cat lady who lives to talk about her cats in excessive and colorful detail, pretty much until my unsuspecting listener is fed up enough to stop me. this book is the vindication of my cat lady ways beyond any reasonable doubt. i picked it up on a whim, in the mood for some light reading, and as we all know, nothing makes for good light reading like cute animal stories. little did i notice that this dinky little book was written by doris l [...]

    4. Doris Lessing would be the one person on earth who would begin a book marketed to cat-lovers with a literal cat massacre. This event [and some other horrors, cats being mistaken for snakes and killed, kittens killed by eagles etc] sets the stage for Lessing's incredibly old-fashioned 'life is harsh, and to cats too' approach to pet ownership.Stories about tom cats fighting over your cat are not charming. Spaying your cat is not a feminist issue. Don't characterize your spayed cat as a bitter, dr [...]

    5. I had no idea what I was getting myself into here. Checked this short book out of the library digitally on a whim and the next thing I knew, I was hooked. And the next thing I knew after that I was lying on the floor crying for all the cats I've ever known, loved, or had eye contact with. And Lyra was concerned, but annoyed because I kept trying to pick her up and squeeze her (she hates that). Yes - I tend to be sentimental about my cats - all cats. And also about dogs, pigs, giraffes - pretty m [...]

    6. "Menulis, penulis, tidak muncul dari rumah yang tak punya buku." (hlm. 236)Buku 'Tentang Kucing' ini sedikit banyak mengingatkan saya pada Istambulnya Pamuk. Jika Pamuk menggunakan kota sebagai refleksi memoarnya, maka Lessing menggunakan kucing. Lebih tepatnya, menggunakan kucing-kucingnya. Ada banyak sekali kucing di buku ini jadi mungkin kalau dibaca sekaligus bisa bikin bosan. Tapi, Lessing menghadirkan cerita tentang kucing-kucingnya dengan cara yang istimewa. Pecinta kucing bakal manggut-m [...]

    7. Last week, my family accidentally acquired a fifth cat. It happened like this: As my father prepared to back out of the garage on Wednesday, he was suddenly stopped by the appearance of a small, black-and-white creature—“There’s a cat in here!” he cried. My mother moved forward to look: “It’s a KITTEN!” Said kitten was amenable to being picked up and held, out of the way of the vehicle; when we offered her food (as ailurophiles do) she gobbled and gobbled, and then looked around fo [...]

    8. Comprei este livro com a ideia de que o seu alvo seriam pessoas que gostam particularmente de gatos e, no entanto, eu - que adoro gatos (e nem me atreveria a dizer o contrário tendo neste preciso momento dois magníficos representantes da espécie aqui sentados em cima da secretária a olhar para mim…) - não senti, em tempo algum, que este livro era «para mim». Acrescento até que houve partes do livro que detestei ler, como sempre acontece quando me deparo com relatos de crueldade contra [...]

    9. Kafamı karıştıran bir okuma oldu. Lessing'in hayvanseverliği tartışılmaz belki -kedilere dair duygusal bir kitap yazacak kadar sevmiş en azından- ama doğan yavruların bir kısmını sayıları çok diye boğup öldürmeyi hayvanseverliğin neresine koymalı bilemiyorum. Kalan anlatılarda da kedilere dair iç ısıtacak şeyler değil, bolca hüzünlü anı var."Kedileri tanıyıp hayat boyu kedilerle birlikte olunca geriye insanlara karşı duyulandan çok farklı bir hüzün tortus [...]

    10. Tremendo livro para os amantes de gatos, Lessing não procura subterfúgios para mostrar o âmago da convivência com gatos, na morte, na doença, nos pequenos atos desses felinos com que dividiu anos ou horas, ela desbrava um universo quente de que também me orgulho de fazer parte.

    11. kitapezgisiKedilere dair bir kaç kitap okudum, çoğu sadece kedi severlerin ilgisini çekmek için yazılmış lay lay lom kitaplardandı. Sadece Sevgi Bağı isimli kitabı bayılarak okumuştum.Bu kadar çok hayal kırıklığı yaşamış olsam da yine de dayanamadım kedili bir kitabı daha kitaplığıma dahil ettim, korkarak okumaya başladım. Fakat ne güzeldir ki hayal kırıklığına uğramadım bu sefer.Doris Lessing çocukluğunda Afrika’da yaşamış, burada vahşi, evcil birç [...]

    12. A memoir of her relationship with certain cats and her observations of them. Funny how many female novelists were fond of cats! As you would expect, well written and interesting.

    13. I feel kind of weird giving one of those special five-star ratings to a book about, well,cats , but this was a pretty special book. Squeamish cat-lovers beware ~ Doris Lessing starts out by telling of her girlhood growing up on a farm in South Africa, shooting baby kittens with her father because they simply couldn't manage to keep them all. I actually love her for refusing to be sentimental. Yet somehow there is an acute tenderness in her writing about her cats, especially as she grows older, d [...]

    14. Livro escrito com grande sensibilidade, mas sem pieguices sobre os muitos gatos e suas histórias, que povoaram a vida desta escritora desde a sua infância até à idade madura. Livro delicioso sobre a interacção destes animais cheios de carácter e independência, com os humanos seus "servos". Recomendo.

    15. So I'm going to bother typing a disclaimer that anyone who knows me already knows, which is: I am the target audience for this book.That said, I absolutely adored this book. And it is not a cutesy, "awww, aren't kittens grand?" kind of book. Lessing is not a hugs and puppies kind of writer. There is an onslaught of gruesome cat death in this book, some of it carried out by Lessing herself. There is a kitty forelimb amputation; there are many scraggly and starving cats, ailing and scabbing and pu [...]

    16. Adı üstünde, Doris Lessing'in kedilerine dair bir kitap. Güney Afrika'dan başlayıp Londra'ya, İngiltere'nin kırsalına uzanan hayat yolculuğunda Lessing'in dostu olmuş onlarca kediden bazılarının hikayeleri. Kitap kendi dönemi içinde (1940'lardan itibaren, 60'lara kadar olan dönem) değerlendirildiğinde, kedilerin insanlarla olan ortak yaşamına güzel bir pencere açıyor. O dönemde Güney Afrika'da bir beyaz çiftliğinde, Londra'da, İngiltere kırsalında kedilerle insanla [...]

    17. Doris ranks 4th from the bottom on my personal list of people I'd like to grab a beer with. But I guess that's not the point. She may be as finicky and uptight as her writing makes her seem, but this book is strangely readable, and anyone who has written a book of cat biographies that ends up being pretty interesting has accomplished something.Doris writes, "Knowing cats, a lifetime of cats, what is left is a sediment of sorrow quite different from that due to humans: compounded of pain for thei [...]

    18. Doris Lessing's keen look at the relationships cats enjoy with each other and with us. While Lessing may anthropomorphize feline emotions and motivations, I would hazard most cat owners would view her musings as spot on while at the same time bring a knowing smirk to their lips.My girlfriends 18 year old cat, Sassy, finally succumbed to her advanced age while I was reading this book. It definitely proved to be good comfort in relieving my mind of the haunted echos of Sassy's last few miaowings.I [...]

    19. Enchanting, delightful, honest, and sorrowful - it is incredible how cats can ever be understood so well by a human, or how much we see ourselves through cats. A most exquisite little book, about the most magical creatures ever existed.

    20. Prepare yourself for reading disturbing things like murdering kittens and cats. not what I expected!

    21. Jedenaście jest symbolem przesady i nadmiaru. Na jedenaste urodziny dostałam od koleżanki z klasy niebieskie kocię. Przyniosła mi je w czerwonym płóciennym posłaniu, od spodu ozdobionym szkocką kratą, do tego kilka opakowań karmy dla kociąt i torebkę plastikowych myszek z dzwonkami w środku. Siedem lat później to samo kocię leży na moich kolanach, głośno sapiąc w mój lewy nadgarstek, i patrzy, co też wypisuję na GoodReads. W międzyczasie - to jest około roku dwa tysiąc [...]

    22. The book is aptly names. The three stars doesn't reflect the content nor the quality of the writing, both of which gave a unique and interesting perspective on the relationship between a cat and it's owner, but rather on my own lack of profound interest in the subject.That said, this book resonated with me. As a cat person the latter part of the book was well received, because I as well observe and (attempt to)deduce the actions of my feline companions. I admit that certain creatures were simply [...]

    23. Upon seeing a book titled simply "On Cats" I knew I would love it. As it turned out, I was right, but some people would be surprised at my adoration of this work when they read some of the less "fuzzy" feelings toward cats that are described. There are many cat deaths at the hands of humans, including the author herself. It should be noted that many of these instances were in times much different than the one we are in now, not to mention a vastly different land.It is not a warm, cuddly kitty ca [...]

    24. This is a book by Doris Lessing and her life with cats, the book is based on her love of the feline creatures that habitats her life, included in the book are two chapters on two cats she was particularly fond off, Rufus and El Magnifico.This book is a lovely read, the style of writing is exquisite and she describes all manner of the cat’s personality and their traits. I wouldn’t say she has a particular love of cats but she sees certain qualities in them that draws them too her affectionate [...]

    25. Es esencial aclarar, este libro es crudo en ocasiones, así que si alguien es susceptible hacía la muerte de animales le puede parecer una ofensa.Yo entiendo perfectamente la reticencia de Lessing a ponerle nombre a sus gatos (hay una parte clave del libro dónde se evidencia esto), también me estoy basando objetivamente en el año que acontecen los sucesos para puntuarlo, si se mira detalladamente la manera en la que se describen las anécdotas, uno puede darse cuenta que no hay crueldad en l [...]

    26. On Cats is an omnibus edition of three books by Doris Lessing, a significant contemporary author: Particularly Cats, Rufus the Survivor and The Old Age of El Magnifico. We are treated to stories, enchanting fragments, about some of the cats who have shared her life; in vivid, masterful prose we are shown quirks, conflicts, tender moments, and are made to love these creatures as if we had truly met them in person. While reading I wept, giggled, cooed over the book, seeing in my mind's eye the var [...]

    27. I'm enjoying this book - it's not exactly what I thought it would be, but when I think more about it, I'm not sure what I thought it would be about.I do find it odd that none of the cats seem to be named - they are referred to in the book as "grey cat", "black cat". Is that normal for British cats to not have names? It makes the stories a bit harder to follow along with, and irritates me a bit, but not enough to stop readingI really enjoyed the last few chapters of this book - don't know whether [...]

    28. I feel kind of weird giving one of those special five-star ratings to a book about, well,cats , but this was a pretty special book. Squeamish cat-lovers beware ~ Doris Lessing starts out telling of her girlhood growing up on a farm in South Africa, shooting baby kittens with her father because they simply couldnotmanage to keep them all.

    29. Quite an odd book, and an odd voice. Brutally unsentimental in outlook, yet tender in her description toward individual cats, Lessing manages to both capture the sadness inherent in the idea of keeping pets and the joy of sharing existence with them.Oddly, the publisher chose to include so much glimpses into Lessing's other works with the ebook, that On Cats itself actually only made up a third of the file. On the one hand, that's fine, as it costs neither me nor them something to do that. On th [...]

    30. This is a book truly about cat.It shows how lovable cat is without resorting to sugar coating cat's behavior or pretend that human can read cat's mind or vice versa as in Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World. Cats will always be its own master no matter what human would like to otherwise believe. And yet because of it the relationship between cat and human is even more special. Black cat, Grey cat, Rufus, El Magnifico, their stories truly touched me and made me missed my faraw [...]
