OAA’s Summer Reading is here! Find yourself a spot in the sun to curl up with a good book, and dig into some of these Cat-approved reads.

This month’s title is Pet Nation: The Inside Story of How Companion Animals Are Transforming Our Homes, Culture, and Economy by Mark Cushing.

In the last 20 years pets have gone from the backyard to sleeping on our beds, then showing up in every corner of America. Pet Nation tells the story of this seismic shift and the economic, media, legal, political, and social dramas springing from this cultural transformation.

Insightful, surprising, and full of great stories, Pet Nation opens our eyes to the big changes happening in front of us right now. It shows us not only what our love of animals says about pets, it shows us what it says about ourselves.
