About the David Grimm Interview

We’ll spend $60 billion on our companion animals this year. More than half of us would rather be trapped on a desert island with our cat or dog than with a human companion. And in the last couple of decades, pets have earned the right to inherit money, be rescued from natural disasters, and even be given their own lawyers in some cases. How did we get to this point, and what happens next?

That’s what I explore in my new, critically acclaimed book, [Citizen Canine] (http://www.amazon.com/Citizen-Canine-Evolving-Relationship-Cats/dp/1610391330), out in paperback today. An awarding-winning [journalist at Science] (http://davidhgrimm.com/), I trace the journey of dogs and cats from wild animals to family members, exploring how our relationship with them has changed over thousands of years and what the future may hold. The book covers a variety of topics—everything from how our pets think, to how much we should spend on veterinary care, to whether cats and dogs should have legal rights. From science to history to law, I know just about everything there is to know about dogs and cats. Ask me anything!
