In this guide to cats, a well-known and respected veterinarian explains the ins-and-outs of cat ownership. The subject matter is arranged logically and headings and subheadings aid those who need specific information.

The easily understood text is divided into four parts. First, common myths about cats are debunked just before the author explains how to go about acquiring a cat/kitten. The second part provides instruction on proper care. An entire section is devoted to teaching good behavior and

"First of all, it's not true that cats are aliens who have enslaved us to do their bidding" OH REALLY? ARE YOU SO SURE?

Okay jokes aside, this is a book with a lot of helpful information.

I saw this book at the library and checked it out to see if there was information within that could enhance my cat's life. This book was very well written and contained tons of useful information.

Being a cat owner for as long as I can remember, I always want to make sure I stay on top of not only their care, but their well-being too. I want to make sure that I am doing all I can to make sure that they have the best life possible. Now that we live in our home, we've adopted 4 cats from our local shelters and can say it's always a learning experience with them since each of their personalities are unique and as individual as you are.

When I got the opportunity to review Your Cat: The Owner'

I wasn't expecting to read this cover to cover, but I did. Not only is it far more interesting than I imagined it would be, it's also loaded with useful information. It answered several questions I had, more than a few I hadn't thought to wonder about, and is a very enjoyable read for cat lovers.

Great, easy read chock full of helpful information. No clear bias or covert marketing from Marty which I've found other pet books to be like. Highly recommend.
