Cats are many things: fuzzy, cute, lazy, silly. But are they influential? Are they socially significant? Have some cats really altered the course of human civilization? The answer is yes! 100 Cats Who Changed Civilization offers factual accounts of cats who played myriad roles in human history, either through their own accomplishments, or via their influence over someone famous. Consider: Tibbles, a cat that single-handedly wiped out an entire bird species—the Stephens Island Wren; Edgar Allan Poe’s cat, Catarina, served as his inspiration for the classic short story “The Black Cat.”; and lest we forget F.D.C. Willard—the only cat who co-authored two articles on low-energy physics, without a single college credit to his name. And that’s just the beginning. With its classy, upmarket, gifty format, 100 Cats Who Changed Civilization will appeal to cat lovers, history buffs, and readers of all ages! Spot illustrations, 1-color
