This volume presents an easy-to-understand overview of 17 different cats, including house cats. That's almost half of the cat family!

About the author (2020)

 After retiring from a 25-year career in medical transcription, I decided to put my 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 me: writing and science blogging, with an emphasis presently on geoscience and paleontology.

I blog at now and am in the process of self-publishing a series of eBooks on the modern cat family
