They say in life you're either a cat person or a dog person.
Nick Harding was neither (although, if he had to pick a side he would have chosen the canines, on account of his cat allergies). Then he fell in love with a mad cat lady who forced exuberant kitten Alvin, on him, and the adventure began.
A Tale of Two Kitties is the story of Nick's unlikely trajectory from cat hater to reluctant cat owner and finally to cat lover, via a global investigation of the weirdly fascinating domestic cat world. Nick embarks on a journey of discovery on which he investigates how cats came to rule the world. The story surfs the kitty zeitgeist and takes the reader on a global odyssey through cat history and the modern-day cult of the kitty.
From hipsters using cats to take over the internet, to the richest cat in the world; Nick's personal cat journey explains how felines have risen to replace dogs as man's best friend. It's full of fascinating insights about cat behaviour, cat history and cat evolution.
Nick lives and breathes cats, all in an effort to understand the true essence of his own badly-behaved moggies. It's a memoir, an escapade, an anthology and a social, natural and cultural history that takes the reader on a romp through our cat planet.
