The kitten on the cover of "The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World" by Abigail Tucker grabbed my attention because it reminded me greatly of my own cat, Curious George, as a stray kitten that I found on the side of the road five years ago.
I have always loved cats and found their personalities, habits, and instincts to be fascinating.
Ms. Tucker's book, a deep dive study into the history of cats from wild creature to domesticated companion, the bond between humans and cats and the humorous, poignant adoration that modern culture has for cats through social media and other platforms was natural for me. The book is a fascinating read, well-written and highly organized in its study of the feline. I learned a great deal on the subject of cats.
A must read for cat lovers everywhere (or anybody interested in a good non-fiction book). I highly recommend "The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World by Abigail Tucker (published by Simon and Schuster).
