From the back cover:

“In Cat Sense, renowned anthropologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-edge scientific research to dispel lingering myths and explain the true nature of our feline friends. Tracing the cat’s evolution from lone predator to domesticated companion, Bradshaw shows that although cats and humans have lived together for eight thousand years, cats remain independent, predatory, and wary of contact with their own kind, qualities that often clash with our modern lifestyles. To live in harmony with our cats, Bradshaw explains, we first need to understand their inherited quirks, including understanding their body language, and managing both their natural hunting instincts and their relationships with other cats. A must-read for any cat lover, Cat Sense offers humane, penetrating insights into the domestic cat that challenges our most basic assumptions and promise to dramatically improve our pets’ lives – and ours.

John Bradshaw is Foundation Director of the Anthropology Institute at the University of Bristol. Author of the New York Times bestseller Dog Sense, Bradshaw has studied cat behaviour for over 30 years and has contributed articles on cats to BBC Wildlife magazine, Your Cat magazine, BBC Focus magazine, and the New York Daily News. He lives in Southampton, England.”
