Catwatching by Desmond Morris
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The personality of your cat is a fascinating mixture of affection and independence. You may think you know him as he purrs in your lap, but come across a cat in the street on a dark night, amidst a soap-opera scene of sex and violence, and it's easy to think he suffers from a dual personality. However, each ear twitch and tail flick has a meaning. Every single cat carries an inheritance of amazing sensory capacities, vocal utterances, body language and territorial displays. By answering such questions as 'What does a cat signal with its ears?' 'Why does your cat tear at the fabric of your chair?' 'Why does a cat swing its head from side to side when staring at its prey?', Desmond Morris give an extraordinary insight into the nature of your cat.
