They say in life you’re either a cat person or a dog person. Nick Harding was neither—until he fell in love with a mad cat lady who forced exuberant kitten Alvin, on him, and the adventure began.This is the story of Nick’s unlikely trajectory from cat hater to reluctant cat owner and finally to cat lover, via a global investigation of the weirdly fascinating domestic cat world. Nick takes the reader on a global odyssey through cat history and the modern-day cult of the kitty. From hipsters using cats to take over the internet, to the richest cat in the world, Nick’s personal cat journey explains how felines have risen to replace dogs as man’s best friend. It’s full of fascinating insights about cat behavior, cat history, and cat evolution. It’s a memoir, an escapade, an anthology, and a social, natural, and cultural history that takes the reader on a romp through our cat planet.
