Daisy our cat is a real handful! whenever she gets anxious or something different happens in our house she wees outside the litter box. I was worried how she would cope with addition of a new baby as she definitely doesn't like it when other children come and visit. Thank goodness I got this book - it gave me step-by-step instructions on how to prpeare her and had a whole chapter on prevention of weeing outside the litter box. Just the perfect book and 'must-have' for anyone pregnant who owns a cat.
Highly recommend this great book, written in a very user friendly way. Anyone who has a cat that is part of the family is anxious about how the addition of a baby is going to work. It has sections on the things I was worried about like Toxoplasmosis, babies being smothered by cats and cat fur. The fact that the book is written by a vet, especially one with further qualifications and expertise in Animal behavior gives you confidence in the advice given and helps to put your mind at ease that your worries are normal and there are simple practical things you can do to ensure the experience is a good one for all. I have recently given this book to a friend who was worried about her 5 cats!! (she is pregnant with a long awaited first child) and she has also found it very reassuring and worthwhile
Must have for cat owners! Information for expecting parents is excellent but can apply to other situations, not just a new baby. Highly recommended.
All the myths about cats and babies explained! I was worried how my cat would be when George came along. Everyone in my family had told me about all the scary things that supposedly do to babies - smothering, asthma, scratching eyes out etc.... Luckily this book went through all these things one by one totally making sure that Miffy could remain part of the family. Thank you Dr Kirkham!
