A guide for the cat lovers about the cat behavior, cat attractants, cat breeds, cat health and food, type of cats, cats as pets, fictional cats, films about cats, historical cats. A book full with pictures of the most important cat breeds, tips and advice for cat behavior, cat diseases and how to take care of the cats. The cat, also called the domestic cat or house cat, is a small feline carnivorous mammal of the subspecies Felis silvestris catus. Its most immediate pre-domestication ancestor is the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica. The cat has been living in close association with humans for at least 3,500 years; the Ancient Egyptians routinely used cats to keep mice and other rodents (mostly rats) away from their grain (and also believed that cats were sacred to the goddess Bastet). The history of the domestic cat may stretch back even further, as 8,000-year-old bones of humans and cats were found buried together on the island of Cyprus.

Fans of science fiction and of Star Trek are legion. Huge numbers of these attend their conventions attired in highly creative costumes that identify them as Trekkers and arouse a spirit of community. Many are affiliated with fan clubs whose members buy or create such attire to be worn at conventions and public events. They come from all walks of life and show up extravagantly costumed not only at science-fiction venues but also at charity fund-raisers and public-service meetings. Klingons and Federation members may appear in the actual world of strip malls and shopping centers as they stage food-fight wars in behalf of the homeless. They surface anywhere they can make a statement about the positive ideals they feel are fostered in the Star Trek universe. Costumers may portray figures from the popular TV show and films as well as invent characters in the tradition of Star Trek. No matter where they may be geographically, their zeal for the show and its values bond them into a community. They must toe a thin line between maintaining the tradition of authentic uniforms and the wish to create costumes that express personal aesthetics and innovation. Many Trekkers on occasion demonstrate extreme creativity in their costume art. Nevertheless, to meet the approval of their peers, it must be plausible and appropriate. Trekkers find a sense of friendship, family, and high ideals within fandom. A gamut of reasons can be listed for why Trekkers costume themselves. For some it is a public way of demonstrating affection for Gene Roddenberry's creation. For some dressing as a Klingon expresses empowerment for women. For others it is escapism or pure fun. Such alien garb and motivationsfor wearing it are explored here in this fascinating book that connects expressions of contemporary folk art, folklore, and popular culture.
