In 60 full-color and archival images, you will meet sophisticated, café-going cats, dusty cats belonging to the wandering tribes of nomads, cowboy cats unfazed by a twirling lasso, sleek Siamese acrobats, and street-smart Tokyo tomcats. You’ll also encounter Koko, the gorilla, and her beloved kitten, All Ball; the cat that accompanied polar explorer Robert Falcon Scott’s ill-fated 1910 Antarctic expedition; and many more—all captured in their glorious variety.
Complete with amusingly informative captions and brief biographies of each contributor, Cat Shots, is catnip for any feline fancier: beautiful, beguiling, and in the best tradition of the National Geographic Society.

for cat lovers - pictures from the National Geographic archives of cats all over the world. Excellent photography, big glossy prints of cats going about their daily routine and their interactions with people and other animals. Nice background stories for each shot that add depth and meaning to the pictures. Some are extremely sweet like the burly farmer holding a tiny kitten, some are rather stark of street cats fighting, many are cats waiting patiently on the docks for fish or something else interesting to come along, peeking curiously through mouseholes. My favorite is the cat sitting in the restaurant in France across the table from its owner. It seems so perfectly at ease in the cafe.

This book is inspiring and definitely for the cat lover. My husband is not as crazy for cats as I am, but even he read it cover to cover and loved it as much as I did. Great pictures and takes you back in time. It also makes a great "coffee table" book for guests to browse through. It's a quick and easy read since it is mostly pictures with a few lines of text.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
