The History of Cats in 101 Objects

Cats have held our fascination for thousands of years, from the Ancient Egypt feline warrior goddess Bastet to modern YouTube videos of kittens riding on a Roomba. We certainly are a feline worshiping cat-centric species now aren’t we!

On that note we were so pleased to have come across the most interesting new book called The History of Cats in 101 Objects. It’s a fun, fact-filled visual history of our human relationship with cats.

The History of Cats in 101 Objects investigates the many mysteries of feline behavior and explores the myriad inventions we’ve created for them (as well as the stuff made for humans that they’ve claimed as their own). It’s a purrfect cat lovers coffee table book and covers topics such as:

  • The adoration of cats throughout history
  • The evolution of the domestic cat and rise of the indoor cat
  • Contemporary cat obsessions and products perfect for every feline fanatic

Discover how humans have long expressed their love for cats and learn the history of the objects commandeered and clawed by our furry friends, from Ancient Roman cat mosaics and Hello Kitty coin purses to toilet paper and cardboard boxes. This charming book also delves into how cats have slinked their way into some of our most lasting works of literature, films, television and other pop culture, and it explores the mesmerizing behaviors we adore, from swatting balls of yarn to taking cat naps in strange places.

If you love cats, you’ll love The History of Cats in 101 Objects!  >^..^<
