Gr 7 Up—These volumes approach the topic of living with pets from different angles. Mixed Breed is a cradle-to-grave overview of a cat's life; Fetch is a dog-training manual, with pet-care advice only in reference to training. Both well-written books provide examples to support their points and solid online and text resources and feature clean, uncluttered layouts. While the general tone, font size, and color photos (that earn high points for cuteness) do not suggest an adult audience, comments about working care around busy careers, etc., point to one. That said, there is plenty of practical information that motivated readers can glean from these titles. Mixed Breed debunks some presumptions about domesticated felines, commenting that the "finicky eater" tag is unwarranted, and that cats are easier to train than people think. (They are not, though, as amenable to training as dogs.) Fetch is explicit in its assertion that trainers need to remember that they are in charge; that training must continue throughout a canine's life, as consistency is the key to success and happiness for both dog and master.—Kara Schaff Dean, Walpole Public Library, MA
