Davisville, 5/13/13: Ragdolls are sweethearts, Manx are quiet

“Your Ideal Cat” is a human-feline matchmaker guidebook, filled with information about different breeds to help people who want a cat (including tabbies like these two) to find the right one. You require affection? The laid-back Ragdoll is deeply friendly. For a more tiger-like feline, consider the Bengal, although it might turn your furniture into an urban forest. Drs. Benjamin and Lynette Hart, professors of veterinary medicine at UC Davis, wrote “Your Ideal Cat.” On today’s show we discuss the book, breeds, purring as exercise (to the cat, it is), and whether Davis is more of a cat town, or a dog town.
