Summary
"House cats rule back alleys, deserted Antarctic islands, and our bedrooms. Clearly, they own the Internet. But how did cats accomplish global domination? Unlike dogs, they offer humans no practical benefit. They are sadly incompetent rat-catchers and pose a threat to many ecosystems. Yet, we love them still. Witty, intelligent, and always curious, Abigail Tucker shows how these tiny creatures have used their relationship with humans to become one of the most powerful animals on the planet. The appropriate reaction to a cuddly kitten, it seems, might not be aww but awe." -- back cover
