Publisher's Summary

Our feline companions are much loved but often mysterious. In The Inner Life of Cats, Thomas McNamee blends scientific reportage with engaging, illustrative anecdotes about his own beloved cat, Augusta, to explore and illuminate the secrets and enigmas of her kind.

As it begins, The Inner Life of Cats follows the development of the young Augusta while simultaneously explaining the basics of a kitten's physiological and psychological development. As the narrative progresses, McNamee also charts cats' evolution, explores a feral cat colony in Rome, tells the story of Augusta's life and adventures, and consults with behavioral experts, animal activists, and researchers who will help listeners more fully understand cats.

McNamee shows that with deeper knowledge of cats' developmental phases and individual idiosyncrasies, we can do a better job of guiding cats' maturation and improving the quality of their lives. Listeners' relationships with their feline friends will be happier and more harmonious because of this audiobook.

    Story
    "I did not know this was cat care book"

    I thought this book was going to give me scientific insights to cat behavior. It does...a little bit. The rest is written like a handbook to new cat owners. If I knew that, I would have passed this book up.

    Story
    "If you are soft hearted for cats,"

    do not read this book. The title is misleading. It goes on and on and on about euthanasia, people who torture and abuse cats for fun, the perils of the feral cat, etc. It put pictures in my head that I can not unsee.
