Aloof. Disdainful. Vicious. Or friendly, fluffy balls of fur who just want to be loved. Opinions on cats tend to differ though one thing is sure – they occupy a very special place in the hearts of many. Making use of the latest bespoke technology, military-grade GPS trackers, x-rays, cat-cams and specialised photography, it explores how a cat learns to function as a wild animal in a domestic world; the extraordinary ways in which cats are able to use their senses to interpret their environment; and the remarkable feline skill of inter-species communication and co-operation. Discover how a cat’s remarkable body, brain and senses – evolved to make their wild ancestors the perfect predator – are coping in the modern world, and how this naturally solitary animal has developed a unique interspecies understanding that’s enabled it to infiltrate our social groups and become modern humans’ greatest animal friend. Just don’t tell the dogs.
