There may be a couple of good things in this book...but seriously!!! and I quote "Don't be lulled into thinking that everything's okay with your cat. Think about a party or a picnic for Kitty. Spice up her life." page 59
i really like this one bec its different from all the other cat books so far that i have read. its more into the mental being of of beloved cat, like how they tick and whatnot instead of just concentrating on basic care.

This book is a great book to read, for the humor value. On the other hand, I don't know anyone with enough time to actually do these things. Certainly not me.

Right! I skimmed it and tried some of the advice and my cats gleefully ignored me and did the opposite.
A really great book shows us how everything is great and worth to die for
My cat still doesn't do what I want.. Unless we both want the same thing.
A more accurate title would be "How to Do What Your Cat Wants." Cheesy!
Warren Eckstein has a pet advice radio show based in Los Angeles. Helpful tips
