When his favorite cat Biscuit goes missing, Peter Trachtenberg sets out to find her. Another Insane Devotion chronicles the journey which took him 700 miles and many years into his past-- into the history of his relationships with cats and the history of his relationship with his wife, who may herself be on the verge of disappearing. Trachtenberg ponders the mysteries of feline intelligence (why do cats score worse on some tests than pigeons?), the origins of their domestication, and their terrible treatment during the Middle Ages. He also looks at the riddle of why any of us loves whom we love and all the unforeseen places to which that devotion leads us.
