Herding Cats Aug 27, 2007
This book is really fun. I'm told that some of the information it contains (which is prodigious!) is now superseded but find that difficult to believe... If you want to know your cat better, get closer to him or her as a friend (as opposed to a 'pet' or 'performer of domestic tricks'), look no further. You have found the key.
Elizabeth Marshall Thomas (who became interested in speaking Cat after an early encounter with a Koi/San "Bushman" and a lion) will slowly and very amusingly open to you some of the further profundities of this somewhat recondite tongue, offering intriguing explanations of some aspects of Cat grammar that may seem at times inconsistent or even downright back to front. There's cat logic here, cat facts, cat lore, cat psychology, cat science galore.
I couldn't recommend a better book on the subject.
