I loved this book and have read it a number of times. If you love cats like I do, you will enjoy this book. It's easy to read and just full of cat tales. From the back cover:
"Through a winning combination of biology, psychology, and personal anecdotes, renowned wildlife authority, Roger Caras shows us how cats view the world around them and the people in it. He offers insights into the secret of catnip, the mystery of cats' iridescent eyes, and the true meaning of purr. He explains cat vocabulary and the startling phenomenon of psi-trailing (a cat's abillity to find it's way home even after being transported miles away). He introduces us to the fascinating felines in his own life, helping us to see how they select people and homes to adopt.

Beautifully illustrated with photographs and drawings, A Cat Is Watching will charm every cat lover, cat watcher and cat person."
