Elise (ellinou) | 525 comments A non-fiction book about how house cats took over the world, and why we let them. If you live with cats (not “own” cats, nobody can own a cat), you know exactly what a huge incomprehensible mystery that is.

Abigail Tucker explores everything about the relationship between cats and humans: the history, when they started to tame and train us to cater to their every need; their environmental impact, which is bad and is not the most fun chapter to read as a cat lady; all the way to cat memes and LOLspeak and cats being Internet superstars today.

This was a very fun book to read, I laughed out loud more than once. I learned a lot of things I didn’t know about cats, but not the answer to the book’s overarching question: what is the point of house cats, exactly?

But I mean, do you really need a reason for this?
