Overview

Feline therapist Vicky Halls has made a career of hiring out her services to frustrated cat owners who are at the end of their tethers, tired of coping with mysterious and often destructive behavior from their pets. In How to Be a Cat Detective, she shares the behavioral strategies that have worked for so many of her clients.

Offering practical techniques for understanding your cat and implementing change, How to Be a Cat Detective includes an in-depth questionnaire that is similar to a clinician's intake form, instructions for monitoring behavior and recording it in diary form, proven behavior programs, and pages of reassuring expert advice.

Whatever the problem is, Halls provides an explanation for the behavior and a rational way for pet owners to intervene, and she eschews old-school techniques such as punishing a cat, which is really just an excuse for the owner to let off steam while merely confusing the cat. How to Be a Cat Detective brims with realistic solutions and it could be the key to harmonious living for seventy million American house cats and the humans who love them.
