The Lion In The Living Room: New York Times Bestseller for Cat Lovers

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Pet lovers, get your paws on a copy of the New York Times bestseller, The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World by Abigail Tucker.

A lively adventure through history, natural science, and pop culture in search of how cats conquered the world, the Internet, and our hearts.

House cats rule back alleys, deserted Antarctic islands, and our bedrooms. Clearly, they own the Internet, where a viral cat video can easily be viewed upwards of ten million times. But how did cats accomplish global domination? Unlike dogs, they offer humans no practical benefit. The truth is they are sadly incompetent rat-catchers and pose a threat to many ecosystems. Yet, we love them still.

To better understand these furry strangers in our midst, Abby Tucker travels to meet the breeders, activists, and scientists who’ve dedicated their lives to cats. She visits the labs where people sort through feline bones unearthed from the first human settlements, treks through the Floridian wilderness in search of house cats on the loose, and hangs out with Lil Bub, one of the world’s biggest feline celebrities.

Top reviews include:

“In The Lion in the Living Room, three things come together with exquisite, delightful effect: a natural history of cats, replete with ecological issues as well as contemporary cultural memes; evolutionary science as it pertains to the origins and consequences of our fascination with felines; and an unusually deft way with words by author Abigail Tucker. The net result is a deep and illuminating perspective on our favorite household companion… One hesitates to use the word genius, but Tucker’s book borders on that quality.”
—Huffington Post

“Whatever your personal feelings [are] about our feline friends, this is a fascinating story about how cats not only conquered the world but our hearts.”
—Catster

“If you know a cat person who likes science, this is the book you need right meow.”
—Smithsonian.com, “The Best Books about Science of 2016”

“Fascinating… If you have relatives or friends who are mad about cats—and the strong statistical probability is that you do—consider putting this book under their Christmas tree.”
—National Review
