A Cat's Tale - A Journey Through Feline History

Felines have been present at humanity's side since prehistoric times; Join Dr. Paul Koudounaris and Baba the Cat as they take us into the world of the cat.

Baba the Cat

A Cat's Tale: A Journey Through Feline History explores not only what cats may have thought of our greatest accomplishments, but also their specific role in important historical epochs; bringing to light the amazing achievements of cats who have long been forgotten with true stories of felines who won medals in war, travelled the world and even risked their own lives for the humans they loved.

A Cat's Tale is a rollicking ride through an otherwise forgotten history, which Smithsonian has called the most unique cat book ever written, and this session will affirm everything people who love cats have always suspected--and just might cause people who dislike them to change their opinion.

Sunday 28 February, 10.30am-11.30am
