Overview

In this companion to her successful introduction to cat behavior Think Like a Cat, Pam Johnson-Bennett, the award-winning author and feline behaviorist, shows how adding another cat to your home does not have to be the start of a kitty apocalypse. Although cats are often misunderstood as natural loners, Johnson-Bennett shows how to plan, set up, and maintain a home environment that will help multiple cats—and their owners—live in peace. Cat vs. Cat will help readers understand the importance of territory, the specialized communication cats use to establish relationships and hierarchies, and how to interpret the so-called “bad behavior” that leads so many owners to needless frustration. Offering a wealth of information on how to diffuse tension, prevent squabbles and ambushes, blend two families, or help the elder kitty in your family, Cat vs. Cat is a welcome resource for both seasoned and prospective guardians of cat families large and small.

    Who Knew!

    Growing up, my family always had a cat. As an adult I have three and have cared for many professionally in the past. I picked up the book out of interest and curiosity rather than out of need. After reading it, I immediately implemented Pam's advise about play time, scratching, and feeding. If the specific cat products she recommends hadn't been of good quality and not worked so well in my household, I might have otherwise viewed the recommendations as 'plugs' for the manufacturers. Her advice has made me and my cats even happier in our humble little apartment. Who knew!

    Easy Reading

    This book gives clear cut advice on understanding how cats interact with each other, with you and a new member of the household. Everyone should read this book if they are considering getting more than one cat or kitten.

    Learned a lot of useful information, especially when it came to our concerns for our newly adopted cat who had it a bit rough until now, would not have known how to handle things with our other resident cats if it wsan't for this book; thank you!
