Overview

It doesn't take a Dr. Dolittle to talk to the animals. All it takes is knowledge, patience, and a little one-on-one time with your four-legged friend. Your cat has lots of ways of expressing himself...and you've probably talked right back to him a few times yourself. But do you really know what he understands -- or what he's capable of understanding? Now, with How to Say It to Your Cat, you can learn to develop all the communication devices at your disposal -- tone and inflection, eye contact, training and touch -- to get across what you're trying to say, to prevent and solve behavior problems, and give your cat the best possible care. Plus, details on how felines communicate with each other will help you interpret the meows, purrs, and body language to understand what's going on inside your cat's furry little head -- and what he might be trying to tell you.
