Reviews

Anthropologist Thomas's (The Hidden Life of Dogs) probing of the minds and souls of felines, small and domestic as well as big and feral, spent six weeks on PW's bestseller list. (Sept.)

The New York Review of Books Thomas enjoys the complexity and subltlety of feline society and rejects many of the over simplifications that have become popular knowledge concerning cats.
Booklist Insightful.

Intrigued by the hunting behavior of her pet cats and those in the neighborhood, particularly since they did not need to hunt in order to survive, Thomas has penned a study of the cat family that could well become a best seller like her Hidden Life of Dogs (LJ 4/15/93). Thomas was criticized for the dog-care practices and conclusions of that book, but her new work does not suffer from her unapologetically anthropomorphic view of the animal kingdom. In Part 1, Thomas engages in an entertaining and enlightening discussion of the history of carnivores, specifically cats. Part 2 focuses on the "culture" of cats, defined as a "web of socially transmitted behaviors." Part 3 explores the future of cats and addresses the issue of their captivity, particularly in zoos and circuses. One may not always agree with Thomas's conclusions or methodology, but her artistry is always engrossing and provocative. A delightful book for those who don't mind Thomas's sometimes wild observations. [Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/15/94.]-Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., Wis.
