Professional reviews

"Tucker explores the eternal question "Are we the pets or the owners?" when it comes to cohabitation with felines. She traces how cats came to be and to currently exist both in the wild (as one of the most invasive animal species) and in the house (as the most common house pet). Narrator Arden Hammersmith's voice contains a light rasp coupled with a low pitch for a female. These traits blend together and remind one of the light purring one might hear in a cat's presence. It feels entirely right for this audiobook. She "purrfectly" captures Tucker's tone. Whether she's voicing genuine concerns of people quoted, wryly slipping in a pun, or conveying the complexity of felines, Hammersmith doesn't miss a beat. L.E. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
