About this book

The author of When Elephants Weep turns his acute psychoanalytical attention to domestic cats, of which he has five, and offers an entertaining examination of their own versions of what we think of as emotions, and of the deep connection which they can develop with us. He draws on literature, behavioural research and true stories from experts and cat lovers.
