Cats

(4-19-2017)  Today, we explore the deep and ancient connection between humans and the domestic cat, with natural history and conservation writer Thomas McNamee. 

Some people consider cats as aloof creatures.  That they mostly depend on us for but food and shelter. 

Not so, says McNamee.

His latest book is, THE INNER LIFE OF CATS:  The Science and Secrets of Our Mysterious Feline Companions.
