Cats are enormously popular. They command our attention, and often our devotion. Why do we find them so fascinating? Is it because they are loving and playful? Is it their cool independence? Their grace and power? The touch of wildness they maintain even as pets? All of the above? To find some answers, meet some serious cat fanciers and their cats. Meet a cat psychologist and her clients. Meet Tippi Hedren and the big cats who live in her cat sanctuary. And meet some extraordinary cats, like Scarlett, who suffered severe burns to rescue her kittens from a burning building; Reebok, who saved the life of a little girl; and Sooty, who travelled six months and a hundred miles to find her human family.
