Ecologist and author John Read has travelled the world consulting cat experts and collating the most recent science. In Among the Pigeons he balances the allure of indoor cats with the animal welfare, human health, and conservation issues they create when allowed to roam. But he also presents solutions, from breeding ideal indoor pet cats to development of humane and targeted tools, to control feral cats.
‘Meticulously researched, extraordinarily informative, and engagingly written.’ – Dame Jane Goodall, DBE
‘Essential reading for all those on either side of the cat debate.’ – James Valentine, ABC Sydney
