Episode 3 Bonus | Peter Trachtenberg on the love of cats and persons


For writer Peter Trachtenberg it all began with the sudden disappearance of his beloved cat, Biscuit. The journey to find her became a quest to understand love and loss, both animal and human. He talks to Peter Brown about the resulting memoir, Another Insane Devotion, the limits of cat love and why he sometimes can't stop himself from one particular expression of his devotion to his cats.
