Kathleen Walker-Meikle – Medieval Pets

Boydell Press | 2012 | ISBN: 1843837587 | English | 202 Pages | PDF | 22.48 MB
Animals in the middle ages have often been discussed – but usually only as a source of food, as beasts of burden, or as aids for hunters. This book takes a completely different angle, showing that they were also beloved domestic companions to their human owners, whether they were dogs, cats, monkeys, squirrels, and parrots. It offers a full survey of pets and pet-keeping: from how they were acquired, kept, fed, exercised, and displayed, to the problems they could cause. It also examines the representation of pets and their owners in art and literature; the many charming illustrations offer further evidence for the bonds between humans and their pets, then as now. A wide range of sources, including chronicles, letters, sermons and poems, are used in what is both an authoritative and entertaining account.

Rescue Dogs: Portraits and Stories by Susannah Maynard

English | August 5th, 2017 | ASIN: B0716VS79N, ISBN: 1682032981 | 128 pages | EPUB | 173.09 MB
Dog rescue has blossomed in recent years, as more and more people are choosing to adopt dogs from animal shelters and homegrown rescue organizations and have categorically steered away from purchasing dogs from breeders and puppy mills.
In this beautifully illustrated book, Susannah Maynard (Cincinnati, OH) provides personality-rich dog portraits and chronicles rescue dogs’ journeys from a turbulent start to a warm, loving, and happy and safe home. Readers will find heartwarming and triumphant stories that point to dogs’ characteristic resilience and unconditional love. Her subjects include puppies, adult dogs, and special needs dogs—of all breeds, and of course, mixed breeds—and her stories will empower readers to join the rescue effort or bolster their efforts to increase their volunteer involvement to better the lives of rescue dogs, one animal at a time.

Do Cats Hear with Their Feet?: Where Cats Come From, What We Know About Them, and What They Think About Us by Jake Page

English | November 18th, 2008 | ISBN: 0061456489, 0061456497 | 221 pages | True PDF | 2.74 MB
Do Cats Hear with Their Feet? traces the evolution of cats from the time they first adapted their feline form about 20 million years ago.
Exploring every aspect of a cat’s life—from predation, to play, to communication—Jake Page shows us what a cat’s daily life is really like. He gives us a cat’s-eye view of a bird hunt in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and explains why cats will hunt even when they are full, and why no self-respecting cat would eat vegetables.
In sections that will be of interest to every cat owner, Jake Page demonstrates why territory is all-important to cats, investigates cat ESP, and shows that cats have, in fact, never been fully domesticated; they’ve just graciously decided to reside with us. Beautifully illustrated, this engaging book is full of surprising facts. Did you know: Black cats do better in the crowded conditions of cities than any other color? Cats are as allergic to humans as humans are to cats? Cats have survived falls from heights of over seven stories?
Do Cats Hear with Their Feet? will show readers exactly why cats are such amazing creatures, and why humans have been crazy about them for centuries

Ethical and Political Approaches to Nonhuman Animal Issues By Andrew Woodhall, Gabriel Garmendia da Trindade

English | PDF | 2017 | 419 Pages | ISBN : 3319545485 | 11.64 MB
This book offers ethical and political approaches to issues that nonhuman animals face. The recent ‘political turn’ in interspecies ethics, from ethical to political approaches, has arisen due to the apparent lack of success of the nonhuman animal movement and dissatisfaction with traditional approaches. Current works largely present general positions rather than address specific issues and principally rely on mainstream approaches.
This book offers alternative positions such as cosmopolitan, libertarian, and left humanist thought, as well as applying ethical and political thought to specific issues, such as experimentation, factory farming, nonhuman political agency, and intervention. Presenting work by theorists and activists, insights are offered from both ethics and politics that impact theory and practice and offer essential considerations for those engaging in interspecies ethics within the political turn era.
