ASI is excited to share the recently published Special Issue of its managed journal, Society & Animals, themed “Outdoor Cats.”

This Special Issue brings into discussion a diverse set of research from different scholars and different points of view that address the complex aspects and issues relating to outdoor cats. In light of the great cat debate, the authors of the Issue’s introduction argue that in order to understand how outdoor cats, people, and nature interact, we need to pay careful attention to the complex questions of politics, ethics, and science if we are to live and thrive together.
