Whether wild or household pets, cats have long been beloved by people.- Each species described and illustrated, alongside examples of their natural prey in the wild- Map of Egypt describing the various habitats of wild cats, as well as locations of ancient Egyptian sites where the cat was worshiped and mummifed- Noted appearances of felines in hieroglyphs and reliefs- Conservation efforts for threatened cat species
