Cat Wars: The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer was co- written by Peter P. Marra, director of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center at the National Zoo, who says "Inside, cats make excellent pets; loose on the landscape, they are - by no fault of their own - unrelenting killers and cauldrons of disease."
