Halls, a cat behaviorist and an author of several books on cat behavior, looks at the makeup of felines, their physical attributes (five toes on the front feet, four on the rear paws) and explains how to make life with the domestic cat more fulfilling, more fun.... Even noncat people will be entertained and educated.
