The Biology of its behaviour
by Dennis C. Turner,
244 pages, paperback
Humans have lived with cats for thousands of years, and there are now more
cats kept in western households than any other animal.
Cherished as companions, valued as rodent catchers, their enigmatic behaviour
has intrigued and bewildered us for generations. Whilst accepting the comforts
of human homes, cats do seem to 'walk by themselves'.
for their independence and self-reliance, myths and fables surround
them, leaving them open to persecution and misunderstanding.
Covering all types of cats from pampered pets to feral hunters, this completely
revised new edition of The Domestic Cat shows how cats live and behave in a
variety of circumstances and surroundings.
With new chapters on welfare issues, and cat-cat communication,
this volume penetrates the enigma that is Felis catus, sorting fact from
fiction, and helping both the general reader and the specialist in animal
behaviour or veterinary science to understand what cats really are.
