Cats and humans have a lengthy history together-going back 9500 years, as evidenced by a grave in Cyprus of a man buried with his cat-but the past two decades have significantly advanced our body of scientific knowledge about the cat. Felids evidently emerged in a near ideal form for being a slick predator, as their basic shape has changed little over the millennia. Today, we have about 30 types of wild cats and over 40 breeds of house cat, yet the major structural differences between them are in skull size. This engaging book answers our most burning questions about this charismatic and inquisitive species.
