I read the cat bodylanguage phrasebook. It was actually very interesting and I learned a thing or two that I didn't know before. I like the way it categorizes it the little pictures are really cute. there is nothing I didn't really like about it.

Kirjan nimen mukaan kirjassa kuuluisi olla sata kissojen elettä. Kirjassa kerrotaan lähinnä kissojen toimintatapoja ja kaikkia niitä käsitellään useamman "luvun" ajan.

Osa kirjassa totena esitetyistä jutuista ei edes ole mitään totuuksia. Yhtenä esimerkkinä "Villikissa on villiintynyt kesykissa". Vaikka toki usein villiintyneistä kissoista puhutaan villikissoina, niin tosiasiassa villikissat ovat ihan oma lajinsa, joka eroaa kesykissoista suuresti.

Kirjassa myös kannustetaan luovuttamaan kissa j

I recently added a new cat to my household, and I was curious about what the interactions between him and my current cat meant. So I picked this book up at Petco for about $11, hoping it would offer some insight.

After pet sitting my friends cats, one of them started exhibiting a behaviour that puzzled me, and I figured I'd get this book to find out that the signals she was sending meant. The book didn't answer my question in the slightest - however it was very informative (on other signals) and easy to read. The body signals are shown with beautiful, clear photographs. It's not for those looking to go into body language deeply, but is more than enough for those curious or those who want to learn to unde ...more

I loved the pictures in this book. They are beautiful, and let the reader see exactly what the author is describing. In fact there is more space for the pictures than text, but even still I found there was lots of good information and facts to read over. I think this book would be fun and interesting for both kids and adults.

Easy-to-read and understand, nice to browse through book on cat behavior. This is a book I would give to someone considering getting their first feline.

Some of it was kind of redundant, and a lot of it wasn't really "body language" so much as "why cats do what they do."
