What do cats want. What are they really thinking? And How do they view us? Elizabeth Marshall Thomas's instinct for understanding what makes animals behave the way they do made THE HIDDEN LIFE OF DOGS a worldwide bestseller. In TRIBE OF THE TIGER, she now turns her attention on felines, both large and small, domestic and wild. She looks at the bonds they form with humans and with each other, and how the hunting instinct of cats in the wild is reflected in the behaviour of domesticated animals. Do cats have emotions, and if so, how are they expressed? Why do cats purr? In this fascinating book - a must for all cat lovers - Elizabeth Marshall Thomas sheds light on these intriguing questions and many more.
