At the foot of corporate skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings, New York's homeless felines have formed their own society. Some once knew the comfort of human care and companionship, but most were born into a world remote from that of the gentle house cat. Considered by some to be a scourge to be eradicated, these shadow cats have won the hearts of a fiercely protective group of New Yorkers whose mission is to help them survive.Author Janet Jensen is one of the few New Yorkers who has been granted entry into this animal underworld. Throughout her work with these animals, she learned new lessons about the amazing connection between human beings and animals.Shadow Cats tells the stories of these feline subjects and the people whose lives these animals have touched -- animal control officers, compassionate neighbors, and those who wish to rid the city of them -- as they share their experiences.Shadow Cats takes readers on a wild journey to a wild world just outside their doors. You'll never look at a stray cat the same way again!
