Book Recommendation: Lion in the Living Room

Hey all! Just finished an amazing book on the science\history of cat "domestication" called "Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World" by Abigail Tucker. Absolutely fascinating and well-researched book. She also doesn't just fawn over housecats, but instead objectively looks at then and their impact on our lives, society and planet. Great read.

I saw the film and found it entertaining and interesting, particularly the idea we do our cats' a disservice by keeping them strictly indoors. It certainly adds fuel to the debate of indoor/outdoor.
