Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

If you’ve been waiting for the ideal guide on how to take care of your cat holistically, your patience has just been rewarded. The Complete guide to Holistic Cat Care is written by two long-time experts in the field, veterinarian Dr. Jean Hofve, and Celeste Yarnall, holistic cat breeder and founder of Celestial Pets…Delightfully illustrated with engaging color photos, this book offers everything you need to know to enjoy a healthy, happy holist cat. Makes a great gift. - Animal Wellness

The Complete Guide to Holistic Cat Care is as beautiful as it is informative: photographs of sleek, healthy cats and adorable, fuzzy kittens accompany the most up-to-date information on holistic cat care. Even those who have been privileged to live with a cat for many years are sure to learn something new from why it is suggested that a new cat brought into the household be isolated (it has to do with the ‘anti-social’ nature of the feline immune system) and how mother cats ‘name’ their kittens, to why it’s so important to ‘cat-proof’ your house (a cat’s tongue has backward-facing barbs that make it unable to expel and object it has begun to ingest). You’ll learn why a raw food diet is best suited to a cat’s needs, the psychology and sociology of the litter box in multiple cat homes, the use of herbs in healing, the benefits of homeopathy in getting to and healing the root cause of cat’s illness. - Spirituality & Health Magazine, April 2010

This beautifully illustrated and reader-friendly review of feline health care, disease prevention and integrative treatments will be a welcome addition to the libraries of cat breeders, owners and caregivers. Unlike many recent books on cat care, this one contains more stuff than fluff and is an excellent introduction to alternative human and veterinary medicine. - Dr. Michael Fox, United Features Syndicate

In addition to being chock full of well-researched and well-presented information on holistic cat care, the book is beautifully laid out and illustrated with stunning cat photographs. This guide is a valuable resource for every cat owner interested in holistic health and a beautiful addition to your cat care library. - Examiner

Meet the Author

Celeste Yarnall's first book, Cat Care Naturally, was published in 1995. Celeste is also the author of Natural Dog Care. Between 1993 and 2009, Celeste and her breeding partners have bred and raised 11 generations of Tonkinese championship show cats on the basic holistic principals outlined in her books, an unprecedented achievement. A lifetime interest in nutritional supplementation inspired Celeste to create a line of all-natural whole food supplements with holistic veterinarian, Dr. Russell Swift. In 2000, Celeste and long time friend, Imelda Lopez-Casper, formed a partnership, Celestial Pets, in order to market these products. Dr. Jean Hofve earned her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. Dr. Jean practiced holistic and conventional medicine in Denver, Colorado, and was the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association from 2004--2007. She has extensive training in homeopathy and homotoxicology, and in 1995 founded Spirit Essences, then and still the only veterinarian-formulated line of flower essences for animals.
