A 15th anniversary reissue of the hilarious and strange cat book we put out in 1999 that has garnered a cult following among its fans. The cat humour market has exploded since this book first came out and it's time to bring this title back to a wider audience. Featuring a breakdown of the art of cat dancing through ridiculous photos and text, this edition is presented in a smaller, hardcover format with a new cover. Don't worry, though the book is presented in its original, unique glory. This reissue is in response to feedback from a variety of accounts and sales reps that the book is much loved and remains in demand despite being out of print.

With a hey diddle diddle, the creators of Why Cats Paint return with another version of feline (and human) reality. And suffice it to say that in Burton Silver and Heather Busch's hands, Kipling's cat that walked by himself has turned into a deeply co-dependent dervish. Their first book was a brilliant parody of artspeakBusch's photos of creative felines matched by Silver's text. Their second, Dancing with Cats--an epic three years in the making!--juxtaposes psychological and spiritual mumbo-jumbo with the language of dance criticism. As Silver explores everything from visualisation to mirroring to empathy, Busch is busy with her human pairs. In one sequence, Fred, clad in tabby tights, kitty-cat body paint and a tanga with a long black tail, leaps about the place with a slightly puzzled pussy: "I share its grace, power, and oneness with the universe. I relate to Fluff and the whole spectrum of feline physicality on a profound level--I even regard birds differently."

On the very next page, chubby Helen, sporting a tie-dyed purple gown and a deep-sworn belief in Feng Shui, identifies perhaps a bit too deeply with chunky, amber-eyed Boots (who looks suspiciously like "Trans-Expressionist" Bootsie from Why Cats Paint). And then there's Sue and Zoot. In one photo, the recumbent grey and peach cat raises his left paw to the sky as his ecstatic human does the same. Then Sue dons a feathery jerkin "in order to dance out some of her past traumas." It's difficult to say which is funnier, the photos or the text, as Silver catches pseudo-therapy's mixture of self- affirmation and non sequitur: "Dancing with Zoot helps Sue re-enact and come to terms with the joy and sorrow of a brief but painful relationship: when she fell in love with her daughter's father while he was photographing bridges in the neighbourhood." Though the two-legged models must have been prepared for this inspired silliness, one does wonder what on earth the cats made of their eurythmic adventures. Alas, until interspecies communication reaches a greater height, we can only dance amid our uncertainty! -- Kerry Fried -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


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, Heleno -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Five stars for hilarity 11. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have never laughed so long or hard in public as I did while thumbing through this book in the local bookstore. There are probably two kinds of people in this world: those who read this book and go home and try to dance with their cats in a similar manner, and those who fall down in uncontrollable hysterics at the sight of overweight trippy-hippy yahoos flinging themselves and their cats into the air. If you are feeling depressed or are taking the world too seriously, I highly recommend taking a quick look at this book. If you really believe cats can dance and communicate spiritually through such an activity with their owners, then you deserve to lose your well-earned money to these idiotic publishers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dancing with Cats 26. Dezember 1999
This is a beautiful and enthusiastic collection of images, that explores and documents the drama of dance with our feline friends. I have enjoyed flicking through the images and comming back again and again to my favorites, whilst I listen to the CD. produced to compliment this most entertaining journey into an almost unexplored area of our interactions with life on our planet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dancing With Cats is hilarious! 16. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Dancing With Cats is hilarious! The claim that the cats were tortured is kind of pushing it, especially considering that of the 4 cats I've had as pets in my life, 3 of them were prone to leaping out of 2nd story windows in hot pursuit of squirrels! I learned when I was still quite young that my cat loved it when I held her in my arms and twirled in circles. It was only a short while before we were actually dancing together-cheek to whisker-just like Fred and Ginger.
I didn't think it could get any better than Why Cats Paint, but when I saw that this book was on its way, I danced for joy!
Thank you Burton Silver and Heather Busch, for the wonderful photographs and the incredibly entertaining text!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I love Dancing With Cats! 16. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I've been dancing with my cats ever since my next door neighbor told me that her cat loved it when she played her Barry Manilow records. My cat, Fredrica's, taste is a little more refined-she prefers to caterwaul along and bounce her little paws to my well-worn copy of the Rolling Stones album Sticky Fingers. Musical tastes aside, it's long been a well-known fact among cat lovers that feline movement is only enhanced by a little human help-whether it be through turning on the stereo or putting on your own dancing shoes. Heather and Burton hit the nail on the head with this one-although Fredrica hasn't shown any proclivity in the visual arts, I might have to get Why Cats Paint just in case she does!

Despite the whole mumbo-jumbo of spirituality nonsense about human-cat relations, I nevertheless enjoyed those delightful photos of cats actually standing up on their hind legs to dance with their equally agile owners. What gives this very artful book a great whimsicality is how those humans all dressed up in such colorful costumes like a little girl clad in a fairy garb, a veiled harem dancer, black-lipped Gothic actors, and the like, including a heavyset lady in purple tatters very gracefully twirling about with her very shaggy Persian kitty named Boots. Would be a great addition to your coffee table especially for somebody who loves cats and dancing!

The pictures are of the laugh-out-loud variety, and the text had me in tears. I highly recommend this to anyone-even the most under-developed sense of humor will have to crack up when they read some of this stuff. "Helen believes that Boots, her four-year-old Persian, dances so well with her because they share a lot in common. 'He's a Scorpio and I have the sun in Pisces, so there's a good deal of karmic support. Also our auras usually match, and numerologically we're both Eights, which makes for a strong psychic bond." It's the funniest thing since Steve Martin taught us all how to fold soup!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Saved me so much stress 19. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
My cat was out of control, was getting into everything. I didn't know what to do. thought if I "fixed" it that would fix it. Nope... right after I got ahold of this great book and started dancing and working closely with my cat. I started to find out what was making her so angry and stressed out, now we are best of friends, and instead of being stressful to me she gives great amounts of soothing mediation. I recommend this book completely

My wife and I think this book is great and plan to give it to heaps of our friends. When I was a kid I remember my father leaping about with our cat, Tiger, when he came home from work. Tiger could leap as high as his head and sometimes Dad would catch him in his arms, put him on his shoulders and twirl around. We didn't realize that what he was doing was "dancing. " The pictures in the book are amazing. It's made us want to get a cat again.
