Sinopsis: In cities and towns across the world, feral cats roam unnoticed, with generation after generation making their way through gritty lives filled with disease and hardship. When photographer Knox began noticing the growing colony of cats in the alley behind his Atlanta music studio, he entered a complex world of feline families struggling for survival. In many ways brutal, this world, he discovered, was also filled with strong family bonds, intriguing personalities, and fun. Urban Tails, featuring Knox's striking images and Sara Neeley's lively text, celebrates these survivors at the intersection of nature and industry as they play in the sun one minute and crouch dramatically beneath a semi the next. Urban Tails is a powerful testament to such operations, giving readers a glimpse into a hidden world of lives that, while not ideal, can be filled with beauty and love.
From the Back Cover:
"The photographs contained in this skillfully produced volume . . . lovingly capture the innate beauty, gracefulness, inspiring tenacity, and joie de vivre displayed by these unfortunate little street creatures."
-- James Richards, DVM, director of the Cornell Feline Health Center
"How to resolve the feral cat problem is one of the most debated issues in animal welfare today. Urban Tails is a thought-provoking book that utilizes powerful vignettes to depict the precarious lives of cats that are neither wholly wild nor tame and the heartbreak their caretakers endure when their charges lose their battles against the cruel forces of man and nature."
-- Jacque Schultz, CPDT, director and Companion Animal Programs advisor to ASPCA Shelter Outreach
"This book is a celebration for the senses! Knox's photography and Sara's touching words remind us that there is an entire world of fragile beings who need our protection, and only through our respect for wildness will we be able to reconnect with God's world. Knox's photos annihilate the ability to turn away from these irresistible beings who need us most. Delight in the breathtaking beauty of Mother Nature's masterpiece -- the cat -- and let this playful collection of images marshal your courage to help protect them and restore their dignity. It's been an awfully long time since I enjoyed a book this much!"
-- Amelia Kinkade, author of The Language of Miracles and Straight from the Horse's Mouth
"These remarkable images of city cats vividly remind us that free-roaming cats exist everywhere. Their poignant tales encourage us to make a difference as best we can through neutering, identification, community outreach, and education so that eventually all cats will have loving homes."
-- Margaret Slater, DVM, PhD, author of Community Approaches to Feral Cats
