What are cats? How do cats hunt? Do wild cats like catnip? Do cats dream? Cats in Question, a new book in Smithsonian's highly successful “In Question” series, offers authoritative and engaging answers to the thousands of questions about cats that Smithsonian scientists receive annually. All of the world’s cats are here, from fearsome predators such as lions and tigers, to mysterious hunters such as leopards and jaguars, to cuddly pets such as domestic cats. More than 100 breathtaking photographs by acclaimed photographer Art Wolfe illustrate the questions on cat facts, cat evolution and diversity, and cats and humans.

About the Author:

JOHN SEIDENSTICKER, a Smithsonian scientist who has studied cats for more than 30 years, is recognized as the world's leading authority on cats. SUSAN LUMPKIN is director of communications and editor of ZooGoer magazine at Friends of the National Zoo. Together they wrote The Smithsonian Book of Giant Pandas, Cats and Wild Cats, and several children's books. They live in Washington, DC. ART WOLFE is renowned worldwide for the mastery of color, composition, and perspective that his photographs display. Among his published books are The Living Wild, The High Himalaya, and Africa. He has received many awards, including the Audubon Society's Rachel Carson Award, the Alfred Eisenstaedt Magazine Photography Award, and Photographer of the Year by Photo Media magazine.

From Booklist:

Done in question-and-answer format, this book includes every species of cat, from the domesticated ones we love to hug, to such predators as cheetahs, lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, lynx, ocelots, panthers, and pumas. Subjects dealt with include physical features and senses, diet and predation, social behavior, evolution, decline and recovery, diversity, distribution and abundance, and the cats' roles in various cultures. Did you know that a male and female lion mate repeatedly, as often as every 20 minutes for several days? Or that lions may sleep or rest up to 19 hours a day? The text is augmented by 120 color photographs by Art Wolfe, a world-renowned photographer, and a list of scientific and common names and a glossary. George Cohen
