    One thought on “A Cat is Watching: A Look at the Way Cats See Us”

    1. We often divide ourselves into dog people and cat people I was a dog person until I was 19 and given a cat I didn t want I ve been a cat person ever since As compared to dogs, cats were domesticated to varying degrees much later in history Dogs have been with us for possibly as long as twenty to twenty five thousand years That is five to six times as long as the cat Although the Bible references a vast menagerie of animals, not once does it mention a cat Perhaps there was some lingering resentme [...]

    2. A Cat Is Watching was the earlier of Roger Caras pair of books about most people s most familiar companion animals, domestic felines and canines He writes from lifelong knowledge sometimes specifically about the Cats of Thistle Hill Farm Caras stories and observations are engaging, and even as someone who has lived with cats and known cats for a long time, I learned some new information BW photographs and drawings enhance the book and I love the chapter headings that each feature a line drawing [...]

    3. The description provided by who, the publisher at the top of this book s page is completely incorrect This book has nothing to do with how to groom a cat Roger Caras was a TV correspondent who become an authority on animals and wildlife of various kinds He wrote a wide variety of books about animals and wildlife, including than one book devoted to cats I picked this one up at the library book sale It s an interesting combination of facts and anecdotes and personal observations, and focuses on a [...]

    4. One if my big regrets is that I never got to meet the author of this book.I read this book in the week it is by far the best book I ve ever read about Cat behaviour The late Roger Caras spent his entire life studying cats and many other animals and really knows what he s talking about.If you get your hands on a copy they are hard to find as it is now out of print then grab it and read it several times because it is packed full of information about our feline friends.A must read and he won t hear [...]

    5. Illustrated in various styles with line drawings, sketches and black and white photographs, A Cat I s Watching by Roger A Caras offers a smooth blend of anecdote, analysis and personal opinion The author invites readers to ponder how a six foot man might appear to a tiny kitten, why a pride of lions might view safari humans in their car the same way we view zoo animals, and just what that cat staring solemnly over the fence might have in mind.The cat s mind is different from the human s of cours [...]

    6. This was a fun book to read I did not like to read than a chapter at a time, though, because Caras gets very creative and existential in his musings about cats, and I wanted to step away and think about it for awhile Sometimes his language seemed over the top and I just buzzed through a chapter He speculates a lot in a stream of consciousness style that is light and fun This was a good bathroom read Caras was at his best when he talked about specific personal experiences with his own cats and w [...]

    7. By far the most entertaining of the feline references I have read This one tries to present a cat s view of humans, which isn t really possible, but Caras does a good job guessing Cats are fascinating creatures so no book about them should be dull Being a cat lover myself, I am biased.

    8. Anyone who has lived in close proximity to animals senses that they can perceive things that humans never notice A Cat is Watching, written in a pleasant conversational style, has helped me to better understand my own little brood.

    9. This book was a delight to read Not only did I learn a lot of interesting facts about cats, but the stories and opinions given from the author were hilarious to read Fantastic cat book

    10. Loved this, but love most cat stuff Roger Caras is especially good at cat descriptions And it s pretty evident that he loves cats so much.

    11. I was telling someone, who was adopted by a stray cat, how the cat had probably already checked her out, and cited this book A Good look at how cats work, and how they see and approach us.

    12. great views on how cats perceive us i learned that cats associate people as big cats and they don t see the intricacies of a person s face, we re pretty much a blur.

    13. Interesting book I enjoyed the parts about his own cats rather than all of the theories and opinions on why cats do certain things.
