In ancient Egypt they were worshiped. In the Middle Ages they were crucified. From a gentle purr to a sudden scratch, enter the dark, secret world of the creature who is definitely not man’s best friend – and who likes it just fine that way. In this extraordinary collection, 24 master storytellers look into the inscrutable eyes of felis catus, and see a reflection of the frightening, the fantastic and the bizarre. From birds’ feet left at your door to a howl in the night, from a preen to a pounce, find out who they really are… if you dare.
