In January 2004 Jeffery Masson began an experiment he'd been dreaming about for years: he rescued a puppy, a kitten, two chicks, two rat pups, and a rabbit, and decided to raise them all together in his home with his family, observing them for a year. This experiment led to friendship, tolerance, cooperation, and even love and compassion between the animals. Here is Masson returning to what he does best: exploring the emotional lives of animals. This book will appeal to anyone who has ever wondered what animals think and feel-and to anyone hoping for a more tolerant world.

"Can a rat become a cat's friend, rather than an entrŽe? Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson didn't just ask that question; he brought a dog, a cat, two rats, two chickens, and a rabbit into his Auckland, New Zealand, home to see how they would relate in hopes of shedding light on human relationships. Tim Jerome reads Masson's first-person work with a suitably professorial tone, although he sometimes sounds too didactic or astonished. Other times, he has a good handle on the wry humor and thoughtful insights that arise from dealing with house chickens making a mess or seeing a dog protect a rabbit friend from another dog. J.A.S.
