Here is an exciting and informative guide to the extraordinary world of cats, both wild and domestic. Superb color photographs of large and small cats, and the art and artifacts they have inspired, offer a unique "eyewitness" view that covers the subject from tooth to claw. See a jaguar swimming, a cat that can outrun a car, a cat with a curly coat, a leopard that has lost its spots, the cat worshiped by the ancient Egyptians, a caracal's tufted ears, and a black panther stalking its prey. Learn why cats need whiskers, how cats purr, how the Manx cat lost its tail, why a lick form a friendly lion could skin you alive, why a lion has a mane, and why a tiger is striped. Discover how cats communicate, why cats play with prey, why cats eat grass, how and why a tomcat marks his territory, how cats find their way home, why the black cat has been both persecuted and pampered, why cats are said to have nine lives, and much, much more.

Synopsis:

Striking color photos of members of the cat family, both wild and tame, accompany a kaleidoscope of minutia--including cat ancestors (the dinictis, hoplophoneus, and miacis), mythology (Egyptian, Buddhist, Aztec, Mochica), contemporary breeds (Rex, Siamese, Birman), cats in literature and art, anatomy, feral cats, and cat care.
