LION IN THE LIVING ROOM: How House Cats Tamed Us

ABIGAIL TUCKER    Book Number: 87487    Product format: Hardback

From feline etiquette manuals, the earliest cat shows at Crystal Palace, mummification to catification and cat cafés, this cat-tastic book explores the deep history of the connection between cats of all sizes and colours and the humans who adore them. This remarkable and hilarious journey tracks cats from solitary, prehistoric carnivores to the undisputed world champions of Internet memes. It is now too late to stop house cats occupying our homes and our hearts and taking over our world, and this fresh look at the Sphinx-like creature is humorous, intelligent and inciteful into the genius of cats. They can eat practically everything and live almost anywhere, ruling bedrooms and deserted Antarctic islands alike. They do humans very few favours, especially compared with dogs, so why do we feed and caress and obsess over them? The author meets and pets champion pure breeds and the latest mutants, attends a cats' rights convention, and treks through the wilderness in search of house cats on the loose. 241 highly desirable roughcut pages, US import.
