By Laura Gould

The Vets flip light. . . George, a male calico, was once a genetic anomaly, a manifestation of whatever that won't presupposed to ensue, a creature so infrequent that even so much veterinarians have by no means visible one. His curious life sparked Laura Gould's lengthy seek in the course of the files of genetics to unearth the fascinating and valiant roles performed by way of early cat geneticists, in addition to cats themselves, within the research of genes and the way they paintings. for everybody with an curiosity in cats and cat breeding, this is often an unforgettable and sometimes hilarious account of the intersecting lives of cats and geneticists.

the sector of genetics has exploded on account that 1992, while the 1st variation of Cats aren't Peas used to be accomplished. therefore a long Addendum is integrated during this re-creation, offering the reader with the terminology and ideas had to comprehend burgeoning new parts within which cats have back had major roles to play---the sequencing of genomes and the construction of clones. those descriptions let you view with expanding ask yourself the realm round you and to imagine heavily approximately even if you ought to have your individual genome mapped or your cat cloned, either one of that are now attainable (if you could have enough money it).
