While researching their groundbreaking book, "Why Cats Paint," Burton Silver and Heather Busch uncovered another phenomenon that seemed to merit further investigation: people who dance with their cats, or, more accurately, cats who dance with their people. It turns out that thousands of people today are rediscovering the ancient practice of cat dancing, tapping into this remarkable method of channeling feline energy and bonding with their pets. Some whisper to horses; others dance with cats. Both are manifestations of humankind's continual striving to connect with their animal companions on a higher spiritual level. "Dancing with Cats "presents scores of delightful and inspiring photographs of people and cats engaging in their favorite routines, as well as moving testimonies of the personal transformations brought about through this uniquely joyous form of communion. A brave leap forward in the history of human-feline relations, "Dancing with Cats "gives people and cats reason to rejoice, jump up in the air...and dance!

Reviews

Reviews from: ELLE LIFE CATS MAGAZINE PEOPLE This lean and lithe danseur noble is only one of the balletically inclined felines that Burton Silver and Heather Busch--authors of the newly published Dancing With Cats--have turned up in their ongoing investigation of the aesthetic propensities of cats (see their 1994 monograph Why Cats Paint). If the American Ballet Theater has not yet picked up on these piroutteing pussies, it's only a matter of time. While researching their last tongue-in-cheek tome, Why Cats Paint, Burton Silver and Heather Busch came across pet owners with a curious predilection: two-stepping with their tabbies. The pair shed light on this phenom in a collection of pet pas de deux. Raves one dance partner: "The feline vibration surges through me with such power. Afterward I feel incredibly alert and peaceful." The authors of Why Cats Paint, bring you Dancing with Cats published by Chronicle Books. It is lovingly illustrated with photos of graceful felines and their colorful owners, caught mid-flight. Burton Silver and Heather Busch have rediscovered and brought to light the ancient art of cat dancing. They say cat dancing lets the owner and the cat channel together and tap into the natural feline energy vibration...or something like that. We just love the pictures. Look for it in your local bookstore. by Michael Neill People who hate cats--ailurophobes is the ten-dollar word--dismiss our purring friends as cold-blooded, self-centered manipulators with no redeeming social value beyond their all-too-occasional oppression of small rodents. Hah! What fools! As Silver and Busch know--and cleverly showed in Why Cats Paint, their previous book--kitties are actually multitalented Renaissance critters capable of, heck, just about anything. And it seems they also cut a mean rug--not just shred it to bits. Dancing with Cats cleverly mixes mock-pretentious writing--"Before dancing, Helen and Boots do a series of mirroring exercises to specially developed feline soundscapes"--with whimsical entertaining photographs of cat-human paws de deux.
