A Cat’s Tale: A Journey Through Feline History
Dr. Paul Koudounaris
Los Angeles, CA, USA
Featured in Season 6, Episode 1 and Season 7, Episode 12. With the help of his rescue cat Baba the Cat, his book is a fascinating odyssey through the highs and lows that cats have experienced since the days of ancient Egypt. 3,000 years ago, mistreating or even making fun of cats in Egypt carried the penalty of death! We also hear some wonderful stories about cats that show they can be as loyal and faithful to humans as dogs but rarely get the credit. There are true stories, such as when a cat had been on a ship with its crew to control the rodents. At the port, the cat went ashore but then missed the boat when it departed. The cat somehow caught up with the crew and the boat in another port in a different country!
