By Laura Gould

The Vets flip light. . . George, a male calico, used to be a genetic anomaly, a manifestation of anything that won't speculated to occur, a creature so infrequent that even such a lot veterinarians have by no means noticeable one. His curious life sparked Laura Gould's lengthy seek in the course of the records of genetics to unearth the captivating and valiant roles performed by way of early cat geneticists, in addition to cats themselves, within the examine 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 the grounds that 1992, while the 1st version of Cats usually are not Peas used to be accomplished. therefore a long Addendum is integrated during this re-creation, delivering the reader with the terminology and ideas had to comprehend burgeoning new components 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 area round you and to imagine heavily approximately no matter if you want to have your individual genome mapped or your cat cloned, either one of that are now attainable (if you could have the funds for it).
