Cats are humanity’s biological and spiritual masters. Customers who understand this will want their own copy of Catakism: A Humorous Purr-spective on Humankind’s Obsession with Cats by Jeff Lazarus. Pair with the companion book Dogtology, also from SKYHORSE PUBLISHING, at the register to serve worshipers of both species.
