Illustrated wrappers, large 8vo, xiv, 350 pp, plates, ills. "The Natural History of Cats is an entertaining and highly informative compendium of cat fact and fiction sure to delight all fanciers of the feline. Why do cats always land on their feet? Do cats have ESP? Do black cats generate more electricity than other cats? if its nose is hot and dry, is it sick? If you cut off its whiskers, will it lose its courage? Tracing its place in mythology and religion, law and literature, poetry and painting, Claire Necker balances the fanciful side of cattery with valuable sections on cat biology: from eyes, nose, and mouth to voice and vocabulary; from genetics and reproduction to predation, roaming, and homing; from foes - the proverbial dog - to friends, who number rabbits, horses, rats, and even Mark Twain's unforgettable elephant. Whether your favorite's a Burmese, Siamese, Abyssinian, or tom - even if you only love the Cheshire - whether you own your own or just admire from afar, here is a treasure trove of legend and lore plus all the practical information you need to understand and care for the ever-inscrutable cat.
