Whilst cats will not be worshipped lately like they had been in historical Egypt, they’re without a doubt preferred pets and loved members of the family. And many of us consider that cats have preternatural senses.
So, cat illustrator Megan Lynn Kott has created a tarot deck that includes mystic tom cats to help in divination. Megan pairs the original pussycat spirit and persona of the vintage playing cards: a wary kitty peering from a paper bag is “The Hermit”; cats play on a carpeted “Tower”; kitties play with quite a lot of “Wands”; drink from a number of “Cups”; use their “Swords” (claws); or pursue items of kibble (sometimes called “Pentacles”).
A 108-page booklet, written through Julia Smillie, displays you the best way to lay out the playing cards and decipher their which means. $19.95 from Chronicle Books; chroniclebooks.com.
