The author has an instinct for animals and what makes them behave the way they do. This time her subject is felines - house cats and their wild siblings, lions, pumas and tigers - and the kinds of bonds they form with us and with each other. Begining by examining just what cats are and their images of themselves in relation to humans, the book then traces cat culture as it evolved through the ages - differently, we discover, in the Old World and the New. Finally, it looks at cats on their own, alone, and together. The book's cast of characters includes a pride of lions, a group of circus tigers, a group of domestic cats and a domesticated puma named Ruby.
