    Dr John Bradshaw is an anthrozoologist,?meaning that his area of research is the?science of human–animal interactions.?His self-avowed aim is to make the science?of anthrozoology accessible to pet owners?through books and other media. In Cat Sense:?The Feline Enigma Revealed he argues that?cats are facing unprecedented challenges in?their life with humans. What they need, he?says, is our understanding. With 25 years’?experience studying the behaviour of domestic?cats and their owners, he’s the perfect person?to help us achieve this.

    Worshipped as gods, feared as demonic servants, seen as both wild opportunists & beloved companions, cats often seem as unfathomable, enigmatic & magical to us today as they did in ancient times. They have lived with humans for at least 10,000 years (far earlier than the reign of the Pharaohs), and today are the most popular pet in the world. That they now outnumber the dog, man's 'best friend', by three to one, is small wonder: at once affectionate & self-reliant, they seem to be perfectly suited to our busy 21st century lifestyles. Yet cats still think like the wild scavengers & hunters from which they are descended—and to which they can quickly revert. Today, they face unprecedented challenges in their life with humans: from conservationists who cast them as a threat to wildlife; from other cats who they compete for territory with; and from good-intentioned owners & vets with misconceptions of what they require. John Bradshaw offers us for the first time a true picture of one of humanity's closest and most enigmatic companions.
