Why Do Cats Meow? is the second book in the series of natural history books for children that answer curious questions about favourite and familiar pets. The book highlights the qualities of different types of cats, and answers some of the more curious questions children have about cats, including: why do cats like scratching things? Why do cats like bringing us dead things? and Why do cats have wet noses?

Through the book, children will come to understand what’s so unique about a cat's body and its behaviour and why they deserve to be well cared for. The book also profiles famous cats from history and popular culture, including the cat-headed Egyptian goddess Bastet and Larry, Chief Mouser to the Cabinet Office, who lives and works at 10 Downing Street in London. By incorporating zoological information about the feline species with stories from history, art, religion and popular culture, Why Do Cats Meow? celebrates why cats have been such dear pets to us for centuries.

Lily Snowden-Fine is the illustrator of Why do dogs sniff bottoms?, also published by Thames & Hudson. Dr Nick Crumpton is a zoologist at University College London. He is also the author of The Amazing Animal Atlas.
