The Cat's Meow: How Cats Evolved from the Savanna to Your Sofa


The Cat's Meow: How Cats Evolved from the Savanna to Your Sofa is a captivating exploration into the history, present and future of cats by renowned evolutionary biologist and cat enthusiast Jonathan B. Losos. He guides readers through a journey of how cats have evolved from their origins in Africa to becoming one of the most successful and diverse species on the planet. Losos utilizes the modern tools of technology such as GPS tracking (have you ever been surprised where those backyard cats roam?) and DNA genomics (what species is your so-called Siamese really?) to reveal cats' past and present. The Cat's Meow provides a unique perspective on cats and their habitats, as well as an eye-opening comparison with their wild cousins. Furthermore, he shares insights into the questions of why cats meow, why they bring dead prey to people's feet, and other mysteries. Jonathan B. Losos not only shares insights but also shows us exactly how selection, both natural and artificial, has shaped the contemporary cat. In addition to exploring how cats have evolved, the book provides a glimpse into the future of Felis catus and Homo sapiens. With Losos' genial style of writing, deciphering complex science and history with many examples from his own research and experience beeing a multi-cat household, The Cat's Meow is a must-read for any cat-lover.
