If you don’t know who Charles Bukowski is, he’s the author of such novels as “Factotum” and “Women.” Whether you’ve heard of these novels or not, the important thing is that Charles Bukowski loved cats.
“If you’re feeling bad, you just look at the cats; you’ll feel better, because they know everything is, just as it is,” he once said, adding: “The more cats you have, the longer you live. If you have a hundred cats, you’ll live 10 times longer than if you have 10. Someday this will be discovered, and people will have a thousand cats and live forever.”
Apparently as Charles got older, he got more and more sentimental about cats and wrote several stories about cats. If you’ve ever been to a used bookstore and saw a cat running around, you already know that cats are literary creatures, so they probably help give Charles his inspiration to write his novels.
