Summary
Witty, intelligent, and always curious, Abigail Tucker takes us on a lively adventure through history, natural science, and pop culture in search of how cats, who offer humans no practical benefit, conquered the world, the Internet, and our hearts. The appropriate reaction to a cuddly kitten, it seems, might not be aww, but awe
Summary
Discusses the natural history of domesticated felines, despite offering humans no practical benefits, through visiting researchers who discovered feline bones in the first human settlements and searching for house cats on the loose in Florida
