Most people have strong feelings about cats; you either like them or dislike them. But few of us have ever glimpsed the private undomesticated cat-the cat that lives on its own, away from human companions. In the heart of the Devon countryside, on open farm-land, four cats - a mature tom and three females-were studied and filmed for a year. Their story gives a picture of the cat in the wild which will make us all-whether cat lovers or not-think quite differently about an animal which, for centuries, we have taken for granted.
