The Life and Love of Cats takes us on an unforgettable journey—we travel from the homes of middle-America 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. Starting with the earliest records of domestic cats 9,000 years ago in Africa and the Mediterranean and moving to the present, Lewis Blackwell weaves stories of one of humankind’s closest companions with a collection of more than 100 unforgettable images.

Praise for The Life and Love of Cats:

“Fabulous felines.” —People

“As good as Blackwell’s text is (and it’s quite good—an approachable, informative, and appreciative study of cats of all breeds), the true appeal of the book is the stunning images.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Filled with gorgeous color photos of domestic and wild felines: Russian blues, Siamese, lions, leopards, Bengal tigers and more.” —BookPage

“A global tour of one of the world’s most popular animals.” —The Charlotte Observer

“This is a gorgeous coffee table book” —dooce

Love this book Great pics, cute stories. Would be a great gift for a cat lover. My friend still had the book. I might have to buy another copy!

A. Hartman says:

Gorgeous and a bit frustrating The cover image on this book is very indicative of the amazing photos one finds inside. It is impossible to see this gorgeous book and not pick it up to browse. I was a little disappointed in the text layout in comparison to the beautiful images, though. Some pages have 6 words (rather trite phrases in the middle of blank spreads — the attribution/explanation for each is in an appendix at the end of the book, which was not immediately obvious and got old quickly), others had more like 300 words in tiny print, which seemed even smaller compared to the oversized photos.It also would have been more useful to identify the breed of cat in a photo caption rather than alphabetically at the end of the book, which doesn’t make it easy to identify them by photo rather than by name. But let’s face it: we’re not buying this book for the text, and the images will delight any person who is even remotely fond of felines or photography. A very worthwhile purchase.
