The Lion In The Living Room - Abigail Tucker

Abigail Tucker takes us on a journey in this book, to discover how cats have taken over living rooms and houses round the world.   It was interesting to read about how cats were mainly brought inside to catch rats, but in reality have little interest in them.  She discusses how cats are creatures of habit and want their meals at set times which explains why my cat will be ready for her dinner each day at 4pm.

There was a fair amount about shelters and the amount of cats killed each year, staggering numbers and hugely sad to think about.  I think that I wanted a little more from this book, somehow there was very little about the benefits of having cats as pets and the reasons why so many people world wide love their furry companions. 3/5

It sounds like it is a rather impersonal book, though it is about a subject that most people find very personal.
