Meet the Cat Family!: Volume 2: Africa's OTHER Cats

Front Cover
B. J. Deming, Mar 10, 2020 - Nature

Africa is famous for its big game and big cats. But if it didn't also have small cats, this great continent would soon be awash in rodents and other small animals.

African wildcats are widespread and were domesticated thousands of years ago to become house cats. As part of an international lineage, they are described in another book in this series.

But what about that spotted cat with the super-long legs?

And the one with crazy ears?

In this book, meet those two remarkable members of the cat family -- serval and caracal, respectively -- along with three other uniquely African cats. 

Each chapter contains statistics, pictures, Red-List status and information about the cat's lifestyle and wild prey. There are also links to conservation sites online for you to learn even more, as well as an extensive reference section in the back of the book.

Buy this book today and spend hours relaxing with Africa's OTHER cats!

About the author (2020)

After retiring from a 25-year career in medical transcription, B. J. decided to put her old forestry degree and undergrad geology studies to use by writing a book on cat evolution 

That wasn't as easy as it sounded, but it has started a new career for her: writing. She blogs at now and is in the process of self-publishing a series of books on the cat family.
