Lots of wisdom here, but really needed "Why Are You Dumb Enough to Have a Cat When You're Allergic to Them?"

the photos could have been better but all in all it was not a bad book. Very informative and the section debunking cat myths was amazing. from kittens to elderly cats I would keep a copy of this book handy for reference on illness and other emergencies.
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because of the incredible amount of repetitiveness when it came to altering and indoor vs outdoor cats, but a lot of that has to do with the style of the series and they're important enough points I can't blame the authors too much. Extremely straightforward, not overly cloying or dismissive of issues in its attitude towards the subject matter (all too often devoted hobbyists tend to gloss over negative aspects of their favorite pet).
I suppose since I am going to be a cat owner on Friday, I should learn something about them. This is going to be an adventure :)
Soooo, I can't read an entire book about cats. I'll use this as a reference if I need help with the ole kitty, but it's so boring that I can't take it. Maybe that makes me a bad cat owner, but seriously.

having just adopted my first feline, i am indeed a dummy, and this book made me feel less so. especially helpful was the chapter on feline body language. the writing is a little cheesy (these people are OBSESSED with cats and i am not quite there yet) but as far as i know the advice is solid.
Bought at a yard sale for a dollar. Surprisingly contains no informations pertaining to cats and christmas trees. Although the only problem i've ever encountered concerning this is that they like to sit on the presents. oddd...<3.
Very informative, but a bit dated. I've had cats all my life and I still learned from this book. But it was written in 2000 so I noticed a few things that are no longer true.

Il massimo dell'utilità. Dopo averlo letto credo di aver cambato idea sull'idea del prendere un gatto. Più efficace di così. :)

Another great book in the Dummies series. I have been a cat owner since before I can even remember, & I laughed & learned all the way through this book.
Informative and well-organized. The book's chapters can be read on their own and make total sense. A good reference book.

A very basic guide to cat care. If you are looking for in-depth health and medical information, keep looking.
Wait. Cats are dummies or cats for dummies? Am I the dummy? IT'S A CAT. FEED IT, PET IT, IT'S A CAT.
Loved it! I want to actually buy a copy to keep for reference. it was very useful info
