Summary

Summary

Every little fact cat lovers could want to know about the mysterious creatures that live in their homes is contained in this collection. For example, cats use at least a hundred different sounds to communicate and can pronounce thirteen vowel sounds and seven or eight consonant sounds; housecats typically blink twice a minute; and in ancient Egypt, the penalty for killing a cat was death!
