Overview

The cat is out of the bag. Alexandra Powe Allred has written another fun- and fact-filled book in Potomac's Most Wantedâ„¢ series, Cats' Most Wantedâ„¢: The Top 10 Book of Mysterious Mousers, Talented Tabbies, and Feline Oddities. Allred provides fascinating details about the history of the cat, from Greek mythology and medieval superstitions to the modern-day family pet. She also offers loads of trivia about this regal creature from which millions strive to gain affection.

Curious about which breed is right for you? Allred has the facts, with lists of the best and worst breeds for kids, most dog-like cats, most unusual breeds, most popular names, and more. Cats' Most Wantedâ„¢ also has tips on how to keep your cat healthy and to correct behavior problems. Believing that cats cannot be trained is the cat's joke on us! Allred also gives full details on Hollywood cats, such as Morris the Cat and Morris II, who had an unbelievable ability to stay where he had been put; big cats like the cheetah, the only member of the cat family that is unable to retract its claws, which might play an important role in the animal's speed; and about remarkable rescue stories such as Precious, Westminister's 2001 "Cat of the Year," who was discovered on a New York City roof after September 11, suffering from dehydration, burns, eye injuries from flying glass, and smoke inhalation.

With dozens of top-ten lists, Cats' Most Wantedâ„¢ will provide you with more entertainment and amusement than your cat gets out of a simple piece of string—and that's saying something!
