Description - Cat by Kay Rogers
Traces the relationship between humans and the cat from its original domestication in ancient Egypt c.2000 BCE, where it enjoyed high status, through to its present status as a companion on a par with the dog. Long before people valued cats as companions, however, they recognized something special about them. Cats' ease of negotiation in the dark, their silent movements, their self-detachment even as they live in our homes, their refusal to defer to humans, seem to indicate strange, even supernatural powers.
