The more-or-less domestic feline intrigues us as no other animal can. But what is going on behind those luminous eyes? Barbara Holland reveals a refreshingly candid view of cats: their history, lore, intelligence, and relations with people and each other. This is a lively appreciation of cats as you know them, with witty analysis and fresh observations about felines both high and low - including Winston Churchill's ginger tom, who attended cabinet meetings; Teddy Roosevelt's cat Slippers, who came to dinner; and, even the author's own cat George II, who was bitten by a mouse and adopted by a blue jay. Barbara Holland's warm, vivid speculations on their life and times, their social, psychic, and mythological legacy, and their impenetrable mysteries, offer a delightful and loving cat's eye view of the world.
