“This is one of my favorite books of all time. The extrapolations the author makes between Claude's behavior and the cat population at large are so funny. And the photographs are equally enchanting. I LOVE Claude!!!” ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 042514139X, Mass Market Paperback)

When author Randy Moravec brought home Claude the stray cat, he found more than just a pet; he found a research project. After close scrutiny of his new companion, Moravec produced this high-spirited romp through a day in the life of Claude. In this witty and informative book, Moravec examines Claude's lifestyle and physical traits to produce a book that informs and amuses. In approximately 50 pages, the author relates cat-specific statistics such as "total time a cat spends airborne during his life," the "average non-food-related attention span of a cat," and "total amount of hair a cat sheds during its lifetime." For instance, did you know that "a cat consumes the equivalent of a good-sized cow in its lifetime"? Or that "most cats consider the idea of getting wet an unpleasant experience that is akin to being on a medieval torture rack"? Equally entertaining are the accompanying pictures, featuring the impish Claude in various positions and predicaments that the reader will find irresistible.
