New York Post Article: The Photographed Cat (PDF)
October 13, 2013

"Their treatment of this visual ephemera generates rich insights about our attitudes toward cats, as friends, diversions, mascots, commensals, and symbols of our own identity, and helps to place cats at the heart of modern social life."—Bernard Unti, author of Protecting All Animals

"In The Photographed Cat, Arluke and Rolfe brilliantly use photography to explore the multifaceted relationships we have with our feline companions. . . .The result is a treat for head and heart that will appeal to pet lovers and scholars alike."—Hal Herzog, author of Some We Love, Some We Hate, Some We Eat: Why It’s So Hard to Think Straight About Animals
