Overview

• Breathtaking pictures that perfectly illustrate the many facets of each cat's personality

• With witty and informative text all about our beloved feline friends

Every cat thinks it is the master of the universe, and that is precisely what makes them so endearing to so many people. They skillfully wrap us around their little paws as they brush against our legs, telling us to please hurry up and fill up their food bowls. They sprawl across our computer keyboards, purring loudly while we try to finish that important letter to the IRS. Whom else would we forgive for artfully shredding our expensive designer sofa, refusing to sleep anywhere but the head of the bed, and decimating the backyard bird population? A proper cat has its (human) can opener firmly under control, generally ignoring that human's wants and needs, but suddenly shows how cuddly and loving it can be when Mom or Dad is home sick or needs some comfort after a bad day. The bond between a cat lover and his or her four-legged-individualist is special and unbreakable, lasting a lifetime. This beautifully-illustrated volume is a love letter to the housecat who so enriches our lives. Take a look at the complex soul of a cat, with so many human qualities, and get ready to learn, laugh, love, and cry, because cats are so much more than just pets — they are family members and lifelong companions.
