by Lewis Blackwell

Harry N. Abrams | October 1, 2012 | Hardcover

The Life And Love Of Cats is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
The Life and Love of Cats takes us on an unforgettable journey—we travel from the homes of middle-America today, back to the demonized creatures hiding in the alleys of medieval Europe; from wild cousins on the plains of Africa to rare hybrid domestic breeds like the Savannah; and from fashionable show breeds to shelter cats lovingly rescued by volunteers. Starting with the earliest records of domestic cats 9,000 years ago in Africa and the Mediterranean and moving to the present, Lewis Blackwell weaves stories of one of humankind’s closest companions with a collection of more than 100 unforgettable images.
