“Crammed with beautiful footage and solid information for the feline fan”

Cat owners have long been aware of the dual nature of their pets: affectionate domestics one minute, feral hunters the next.
This film spends an hour investigating how closely little 4-pound Cleo is connected to her 600-pound tiger sister half a world away.

The feline-centric British have actually conducted studies on barn cats that reveal the similarity of group relationships to lion prides, both in the care females give to each others’ young and in the viciousness of males taking over a group.

The result is some disturbing footage of a lion killing his predecessor’s kit and a graphic tale of a tomcat doing the same. Their gentle side is also explored in segments about cat therapy for the elderly and autistic.

This DVD is crammed with beautiful footage and solid information for the feline fan, from why cats land on their feet when they fall to the strengths and weaknesses of their vision.
Early on, the host sums up the paradox of cat ownership: “To share one’s life with a cat is to invite a bit of wildness indoors.”

By night, they’re ruthless hunters that stalk their prey with a keen sense of sight and smell. By day, they’re playful, loving companions for millions. Today, cats outnumber dogs as America’s favourite pet.

Worshipped in ancient Egypt and persecuted during medieval times, domestic cats over the centuries have been feared and adored. As comforting companions, cats provide therapy for the elderly and autistic. But as dramatic sequences show, the behaviour of cats is never far removed from that of their cousins in the wild.

If you’ve ever wondered why cats always land on all four feet or what makes them purr, join National Geographic for Cats: Caressing The Tiger.
