    Must have for all cat owners

    I kept seeing this book recommended on many cat sites. When I browsed through it in the store I knew it was a must have for me. I strongly recommend buying this book if you own a cat.

    Great Book

    The ¿Cat Owners Handbook¿ is a great backup for the advice that your cat¿s veterinarian gives you. I am looking forward to a revised edition that includes updated information about FIV and Feline Diabetes.

    Great Cat Care Reference Book

    I commonly refer this book to new cat owners. I have over 20 years working with cats (owner, foster, rescue) and have used this manual on many occasions. It covers a variety of topics necessary to be a responsible cat care giver.

    An Absolute Must!

    Anyone who cares for a cat must own this book! I have eight cats, and I wouldn't be without my veterinary handbook. It is informative enough to provide a strong home-diagnosis and treatment, but simple enough for the cat-illiterate to use. It contains a complete index, plus an index of signs and symptoms you can use to identify the cat's ailment. Contains invaluable advice for everthing from the emergency treatment of an injured cat to administering medications that your vet has given you to maintaining a happy, well-cared for animal. It even has instructions on bathing and grooming your cat properly, and it is FULL of detailed pictures! A must-have tool for every cat-lover!
