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
