With a wealth of practical information, this comprehensive and enjoyable handbook will provide cat owners with new insights into their pets: how they think, how they express affection, how they make choices—in short, why they do what they do. Among the topics covered in this multifaceted guide are how to choose the appropriate breed for a particular lifestyle or personality, how create a cat-friendly home, how to raise kittens, and how to make an adopted cat feel at home. Additional sections discuss how to interpret a cat’s body language, what cats should not eat, whether it is possible to tame a feral cat, how to care for an aging or ailing cat, and how to have fun with a cat. Numerous photographs and illustrations—including original illustrations by the author—are scattered throughout the book, making this an informative and visually appealing resource for any reader owned by a cat.
