Cats Work Like This was started by David St John Thomas in his 80th year and has been finished by his son Gareth. It gives a rare insight into the workings of cats’ elusive minds, gleaned from the authors’ two generations of watching their cats work. Learn about political and ‘eco’ cats, what cats do while you sleep, and what a cat’s eyes can tell you. Focusing on attention, emotion, manipulation and cunning, it explores both the scientific nature and daily habits of these puzzling creatures.

For the Love of a Cat: A Publisher’s Story

Few people can appreciate the joy that being owned by a cat brings better than David St John Thomas — the latest in a long line of publishers and authors to pay homage to the very special cats who have entered their busy lives.

This is a book for everyone who really cares about cats.

While cat people are nice (Hitler couldn’t stand them!), the real heroes in this book are naturally the cats themselves. A rich portfolio of feline characters — including the author’s own cats — step off the page, of perhaps lie curled in seductive curves on it, so vividly that you can feel their fur and hear their purr!

Rich in entertaining anecdotes and asides, For the Love of a Cat will enhance every cat owner’s understanding of their feline friend and remind them again and again just how lucky they are to share their lives with this most fascinating of creatures.
