The Life & Love of Cats — By Lewis Blackwell

Oh! Those fabulous felines! 

Starting with the earliest records of domestic cats 9,000 years ago in Africa and the Mediterranean and moving to the present, Lewis Blackwell's The Life & Love of Cats weaves together stories of one of humankind’s closest companions with a collection more than 100 gorgeous color photos of domestic and wild felines, including Russian Blues, Siamese, lions, leopards, Bengal tigers and more. 

The Life and Love of Cats combines facts and full-page photographs to takes us on a global tour of one of the world's most popular animals. Readers will travel from domestic cats in American homes 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.
