From the back of the book:
Cats are a proud lot, and the pages of history overflow with tales of their amazing deeds. They're aloof, independent, calculating--clever little thinkers that usually wind up owning their owners. You can't outwit the modern, up-to-date house cat, Felis domestica calculata. But at least you can learn to hold your own. Thousands of cat persons have--with the estimable assistance of Eric Gurney's handbook.
This was a funny look at our felin friends. Very good book.
