With a handle on what’s behind your cat’s quirky personality, you’ll be able to maximize quality time with the fuzziest member of the family.

A great short answer book. Good for a quick reference & it was entertaining. I was looking for something more in depth but it was a great starting point.

Upon reading Arden Moore's book, 'The Cat Behavior Answer Book: Practical Insights and Proven Solutions for Your Feline Questions,' I wish I would have had this book many years ago. I've always owned cats and cared for them the best I could. Having this book would have answered a lot 'or most'of my questions and I would have been a much better cat owner -- as I am today. Thank you Arden Moore!
