    Excellent resource!

    Purchased for the owners of a new kitten, the recipient stated that the information was thorough, interesting, and helpful. The kitten's owner enthusiastically implemented the suggestions for introducing their new pet to their 1 year old cat with a happy transition for the whole household. They are eager to continue with the helpful steps in raising their kitten and caring for their animals with greater confidence.
    I would heartily recommend this book for new kitten owners AND current cat owners. It made a great gift.
