Paul Leyhausen’s Offensive, Defensive Cat Behavior Drawings — 4 Comments

  1. I was lucky enough to get my copy of Leyhausen’s book when it was new for the now-unheard-of price of $14.95 (through the Natural Science Book Club). I had to take an entry-level course in ethology to get through it, and I have re-read it several times over the years. I am astonished at its current price, which, on today’s Amazon listing, is $2,016.54 new, and from $145.59 to $859.27 used. Even adjusted for inflation, I paid around $55 in 2019 dollars.

  2. That is a good set of illustrations. The key is to be able to read them as they happen in clusters, add some feline vocals and boy do they say a lot to each other.
