Do Cats Hear With Their Feet?: Where Cats Come From, What We Know About Them, And What They Think About Us by Jake Page, 2008

This fascinating book explores not only the evolutionary path of the domestic house cat (felis catus), but also the historical significance of cats and the continued mysteries surrounding our feline friends. Page, the author of many books about the natural sciences, includes a detailed explanation of the evolution of the cat family as well as an account of recent findings that cats were domesticated before Ancient Egypt. Additionally, theories as to why cats may have come into contact with human settlements and the reason why cats have never been completely domesticated are explained. Page details the various mythologies surrounding cats from different cultures and random facts about cats. The colloquial tone makes this book easy for cat lovers to devour.
