    This book was totally amazing!

    Despite having read various stuff on cats and despite inevitable repetitions, as well as the fact that a good deal of the information was something I already know, the book is still plain gorgeous. Why? Because of the cute drawings, of course! :) It's one of those things you feel thrilled just to hold in your hands: good paper, good font, amazing black&white drawings, interesting random facts about cats (really enjoyed those), a lot of useful information. I especially liked the instructions on cat training, cat character types and the cat IQ test (my kitty passed it with flying colours lol).

    I thought I have read it and knew it all before but this book explained a lot of the things I did not understand: why my cat likes to eat from the floor instead of her bowl, why she dosn't care for some of her food until I put it right under her nose and practically into her mouth, why she seems uninterested in a toy close to her but gets all excited when it's moving from a distance.

    There was even some esoteric advice, including calming your cat with flower essences, improving its behavour with harp music and guessing cat's character by the form of its snout. Guess what? Those seem to work! :)

    The question and answer format is something I normally dislike but it was done quite well (and written with a sense of humour which I appreciate a lot).

    One of the best books on cats ever!

    Funny little book all about cat psychology. Mostly in Q&A format, I thought I'd take a look at it since I spied it on the library display shelf. Things I learned from this book: the wonders of double-sided tape for keeping the kitties off the counter, cats mark their territory with oils from their whiskers (that's why they rub up again you), and you can test your cat's IQ by seeing if it has object permanence (just like you would with a small child). Oh, and cats knead because it is calming and reminds them of how they used to stimulate milk production from their mothers ...

  3. Cheryl says:

    I found this book rather educational, although it didn't answer all of my questions as to whether Minerva is abnormal, acting out, or just being a cat when she does the things that drive me nuts.

  4. Sharon C. Robideaux says:

    Excellent advice

    Sometimes books like these ignore more pragmatic advice, but this book delves into some of the more problematic issues. I liked how the author dealt with some issues, but she missed the point on other issues.

  5. Laura says:

    This book is very helpful in understanding and living with cats.

  6. Leanne Russ says:

    When I first picked this book up from a Borders bookshelf, I was doubtful. I thought, I bet it is just a book that repeats questions, teaches you how to train your kitten to use the liter box, and I don't know, why they meow? But no, I was wrong.

    Arden Moore has written a humorous, factual book that keeps me reading. People send her very short stories of a problem and question about their cat's behavior. The stories are sometimes funny, and I learned a lot about my fellow felines.

    Some cool facts learned in this book:

    Cats knead on blankets and your lap to show hat they are joyful and happy. It is what they did to suckle milk from their mothers as kittens, also a happy and joyful time.

    Cats have about 473 taste buds and we have Over 9,000. This is the reasons that they are picky about their food. The smell of the food is mainly what puts them on or off.

    I don't want to spoil anything else! Read this Q-and-A style book. You may even want to get a cat after reading this book. I smile every pages, and so will you. You may get your own questions answered too! A lot of mine were.

  7. Robin says:

    A good book for a new cat owner, however most information will be obvious to anyone who has owned cats before. There were a few useful bits of information I found in here, but nothing worth suffering through 300 + pages for.

    What I Liked
    The author seems very knowledgeable about cats.
    There's a good list of resources in back of book.
    The illustrations are nice.

    What I Didn't Like
    The question and answer format is annoying. It seems like a poor excuse to use instead of writing an actual book.
    Some of the questions are so boneheaded that I can only hope the author made them up, as I'd hate to think there are actually adults that stupid.

  8. Meagan Houle says:

    I quite enjoyed this informative little book. It's ill-suited to real cat experts like breeders and exhibitors, but the average cat owner may find a lot of useful ideas here. It covers everything from behavioural problems, to clicker training, to detailed insights into how the feline brain works. Again, a lot of this information will seem elementary to someone who has really done their research on cats, but most cat lovers will find this readable and useful. Some of the humour's a little corny, but the content is great!

  9. Sheryl says:

    A cute, informative book, written with a touch of humor (& adorable pictures). If I didn't already know so much about cat behavior it would have been really helpful. It was still a fun read for those who, like me, love cats. I would say it's definitely a good book for people who have their first cat, or just haven't bothered to delve into what makes those warm, furry, loveable little creatures tick.

  10. Dolly says:

    This is an interesting book that offers answers to common questions that cat owners have. The book is fairly lengthy and covers a wide range of topics. Our youngest daughter picked this book out at our local library, but merely skimmed through it. It was coming due and I thought I'd give it a quick read. It didn't really offer any new information from what I've read before, but it's a good reminder about how to properly care for and train a cat.
