Synopsis: Why do cats always land on their feet after a fall? What allows a sleeping cat to comfortably curl into a circle? Why do cats appear to torture their prey before killing it? Just how much attention do cats really require? In the spirit of the Discovery Channel television series Wild Discovery, this book answers these and other questions, drawing from science, history, and feline behavior in the wild to explain the inner nature and most puzzling characteristics of these endearing animals.

Included in this comprehensive primer are:
-- Understanding cat language
-- Feline sleep patterns
-- Learning and intelligence
-- An informative guide to 28 major cat breeds
-- The cat's agility and senses
-- Marking and defending territory
-- Nutrition, grooming, and health

Enhanced with striking color photographs, this is an entertaining and insightful approach to feline behavior, pet care, and appreciation that will delight cat fanciers of all ages.
