Didn't help much. Beatrice still bites the shit out of me.

There were a couple of interesting things to learn from this. Such as why it is that your cat will be sitting in your lap, enjoying getting pet, then suddenly jumps up out of nowhere for no reason. But I really don't think cats need herbal remedies or prescription drugs to help with their behavior problems. I think anyone that is giving their cat valium should have their cat taken away from them and should also receive mental help.

i chose this one from the library mainly because of the hilarious title. it didn't really address my cat's issue (food obsession/ bulimia?) head-on, but i liked what it said about play therapy and putting catnip toys away between uses to preserve the potency. my plan is to play with my cat until she is too exhausted to bother me for food. wish me luck.

This is an excellent cat behavior book that every feline owner should have on their home book shelf.
It is my go-to resource for all my cat questions and remedies.
Even the toy recommendations are the best I have found: Da Bird in particular far surpasses any other feather toy I have used.

A good basic cat behavior book. I brought it home from the library after bring an abandoned cat home from the same place! It had some good advice that has helped me to make a stray into a house pet and help him adjust and gave me some good insights into how cats tick in general.

This is very informative, especially if your cat scratches your eyelid. Don't ask :)

I think a lot of folks think of cats as work-free pets, but they really need regular, loving attention. This book helps explain some reasons why a kitty might be behaving badly.

Great information on the behaviors of your companion, getting to know what he is trying to communicate to you and great info on keeping him healthy.

Another interesting book on cats. This one has some info on nutrition but also has a lot of behavioral information. This book is quick & easy to read.

3.5 stars. Not too much new information from Johnson's other books but it was an interesting and easy read. I'm going to research further into the use of Bach Flower Remedies.

I dont agree with all the theories in this book...but it was definately worth reading. I still say, if you have a cat you should be reading all of these cat behavior books.

“Cats are true carnivores. While you may choose a vegetarian lifestyle, don't assume it's healthier for your cat also. Cats aren't able to convert beta-carotene into vitamin A the way we can. They must get vitamin A from animal tissue (called preformed A). Cats are also unable to convert linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid) to arachidonic acid the way dogs can so they must get preformed arachidonic acid from its only source—animal tissue.” 4 likes
