John Scalzi’s Fuzzy Nation

Jack Holloway works as an independent prospector for one of the biggest corporations in the galaxy, and he happens to stumble upon an immense treasure that could become billions of dollars for both ZaraCorp and Holloway himself. Things become a BIT more complicated when Jack discovers adorable little bipedal cat-like humanoids he calls fuzzies. When he realizes that mining the planet would destroy their natural habitat and wipe out a species that might actually be sapient, he defends the little furry people and is forced to face off against the corporation he works for. Fuzzy Nation is seriously heavy wonderful stuff that brilliantly parallels the questions of morality surrounding destroying animal’s habitats for mining and oil. BRING KLEENEX!
