On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 1960, “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee was published and quickly became a classic and won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1961. Her cat, Mister Tiggly Wuggums, was extremely upset as he believed Ms. Lee had stolen the title to his book, which was a slasher/murder/how-to/cookbook for the stalking/killing/throwing in the air and playing with/cookbook of all things smaller than himself. The other cats in the United States were equally disappointed when they read the book and discovered it was about a young girl and her family in rural Alabama. The dogs of the United States were disinterested in the book since there was no ‘scratch and sniff” sections.
