For Cat Lovers, a Book on the Guardians of the Liquor Cabinet


Sonny Figueroa/The New York Times

As mousers, cats earn their keep guarding the sacks of grain that are essential to distilleries and breweries. The author Brad Thomas Parsons, a cat person, has documented 30 of these felines, giving their names, habits and locations, with charmingly sketched portraits by Julia Kuo. Alongside are some cocktail recipes, including the idle revolver made with whiskey, coffee liqueur and orange bitters. Stuff it into a stocking or gift it with a bottle of whiskey: Distillery Cats: Profiles in Courage of the World’s Most Spirited Mousers” by Brad Thomas Parsons (Ten Speed Press, $14.99).
