This book is a great book for anyone owning their first cat. It is informative and easy to read. Pam breaks the book down into chapters that allows you to find quick references to any questions you may be looking up. She has a down to earth, sensible approach to resolving problems and explains the cat's world through its body language, instincts and perspective. Pam covers so many of the issues cat owners run into with their cats including litter box issues, introducing cats to new cats, dogs, guests and babies as well as informative information regarding food, bedding and litter boxes. I have been a cat owner for 20 years and still found informative information in this book.

This is probably one of the best books about cat behavior that I've ever read. Pam Johnson-Bennett's approach is both compassionate and practical, and errs on the side of the cat's mental health (although there were some sections in here about cats that seemed SO messed up I'm not sure I'd be able to put up with them . . . I got through it feeling like I had pretty well-adjusted cats after all).Pam doesn't offer any quick fixes, which is disappointing at times, and it can feel as though actually following ALL her suggestions could be a full-time job. Still, although I only bought this book for a few chapters (scratching, counter-hopping, move adjustments, and intercat aggression), I was so impressed that I ended up reading it cover-to-cover because in doing so, I knew I'd learn a lot about cats. Although reading it this way made some of the sections feel repetitive (it's obviously written as a book in which "chapter hopping" is common), I'm sure I'll appreciate its comprehensiveness when I continue to refer to it in the future. A reference that should be on all cat-owners' bookshelves.
