內容簡介 A beautiful tribute to the charm and brilliance of our feline friends. Like cats, cat lovers are forever curious to learn more about our feline friends, and look at anything about their chosen pet -- especially gorgeous photographs. Here, Kitty has all of those and more. Cats began their relationship with humans with the Egyptians, who had rodents raiding their grain storage and ships. As efficient rat catchers that didn't require care, they went on to earn their keep for thousands of years. But at some point, humans decided that cats could come inside. There were mice in the house, after all, and furry cats made great footwarmers on a cold night. Cats became permanent fixtures in homes around the world and over time new breeds emerged or were purposely bred. Here, Kitty uncovers the secrets of 36 breeds and what makes each distinctive and endearing.
