Ode to Kitty with Elena Passarello, contributor to Cat is Art Spelled Wrong

In honor of the World’s Most Famous Cat Painting, spend your Caturday with the World’s Most Famous Cat Poem, and then make a cat poem of your own! Discuss the history behind Christopher Smart’s legendary 250-year old ode to his kitty, Jeoffry, and talk about the tradition of making art in tribute to pets. Then try your own hand at writing cat list poems about the cats in your lives.
