Why do cats rub up against furniture? Why do they like to hide in bags? What makes them purr? These are just some of the questions answered in this fascinating and informative picture book on feline behavior.

Through the inventive narrative, young readers examine the instincts of the common house cat. The text works on two levels: it describes a day in the life of a pet cat named Molly, and then explains the scientific basis for all of her actions. Some of the most ordinary cat antics, like pouncing on a toy or scratching against an object, are deeply rooted in the behavior of wild ancestors. Susan Bonners expertly explains why our beloved pets act the curious way they do.
