I have bad news for the anti-cat forces out there. I have been surprised, myself, by the number of people who come up to me at the book signings and say something like, “We really like the cat! We have 12 ourselves, and they’re all just like Ludwig!” Now, I like the cat cartoons, or I wouldn’t do them. However, I’d always thought of the Ludwig fans more as fans of cats and cat humor primarily and, maybe, fans of A&J secondarily. This may have been an oversimplification on my part. It seems a lot of genuine fans of the strip don’t think of Ludwig apart. I may have to rush up the release date on that second book, the one of cat cartoons! I told you it was bad news for the anti-cat crowd.
