Item description for Urban Tails 2009 Wall Calendar by Knox...

In cities and towns across the world, feral cats roam unnoticed, with generation after generation making their way through lives filled with hardship. When photographer Knox began noticing the growing colony of cats in the alley behind his recording studio, he entered a complex world of feline families struggling for survival. In many ways brutal, this world was also filled with strong family bonds, intriguing personalities and real emotion. The Urban Tails 2009 wall calendar presents twelve of Knox's striking images, celebrating these survivors at the intersection of nature and industry. Knox is an acclaimed photographer known for his dramatic, gritty and realistic visual take on street life. His book, Urban Tails, was published in 2006 by New World Library. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this calendar will go to charitable organizations dedicated to helping stray and feral cats.

Amazing book  Aug 10, 2008
This is an amazing book that really brings a tear to your eye. I definitely recommend it, it is moving and honest in a way that is not often found these days.
Disappointing  May 22, 2008
The pictures are great. I love how the author captured the society and different personalities of the cats. However, I was disappointed that the writer didn't get around to explaining whether the cats were neutered/spayed until the end of the book. There were references to the old tom cat, beat up. Why didn't they get him neutered? Or the momma who had more than one litter. I don't know when this was written, but it is standard practice now with feral colonies to trap/neuter/release on a regular basis to manage the colony and keep everyone healthy.
Urban Tails tell tales  Feb 25, 2008
I'm so glad I ordered this calendar, I couldn't beleave it was on my dorrstep the next day, it was like they new I was going to order it and sent it in advance, amazing. The calendar is so preciouse with all the pictures of street living cats, but the real jewl in this is the stoy the photographer shares on who these felines are, where they live, how he came to know them and take tell their stories. It makes one want to go out and take pictures of forgotten community of homeless and stray animals. It's a work of Heart.
Poignant photo essay may inspire you to start your own trap/neuter/return (TNR) program  Jan 20, 2008
Photographer Knox and freelance writer Sara Neeley have teamed up to produce a stunning, poignant photo essay highlighting the beauty of the hidden world of alley cats. Knox, well known for his gritty urban photojournalism, was inspired to photograph the feral survivors he encountered in his work. He soon uncovered a complex underground family structure of cats surviving the clash between nature and modern civilization. The authors readily acknowledge that this book shows only a sunny glimpse at the brutal life of street cats (for "who would buy a book that accurately showed the suffering" they endure?), but their purpose is to document this world and inspire citizens to make small changes, including spaying and neutering both domestic and feral animals.
precious, sad kitties  Dec 24, 2007
A stark account of the lives of urban feral cats. The book may leave you sad and angry, but the black and white photos are precious, and you will run to give your own sweet, safe, healthy kitty an extra hug. I bought it for a fellow cat friend.
