Full description for The Feline Mystique
What is it with women and cats? "The Feline Mystique" is the first serious examination of the intense relationship between woman and their cats and of the repercussions that bond can have on others. Richly researched and searchingly personal, "The Feline Mystique" uses history, science, art, and literature as touchpoints to explain and explore contemporary women's lives with their cats. From a glamorous tiger trainer to a feral-cat rescuer, from a show breeder to Simon and her own relationship with the gray longhair Cyrus, this book will introduce you to women both ferocious and nurturing and animals both whimsical and noble. It's a fresh, fascinating exploration of the timeless bond between women and cats, and will deepen your understanding of your relationship with your own feline-be he or she tiger or tabby. A cat person's answer to" Pack of Two" and "The Secret Life of Dogs," "The Feline Mystique" is an eye-opening and soul-soothing book for all cat lovers.
