This is a book any cat lover should read...at least once in her/his life! Sure, Im absolutely serious about this: if you want to understand your cat buy this book... and read it.

I got married 8 months ago and my new husband disliked my cat. He wouldn't pet the cat or even fill his water bowl. The stress was becoming unbearable for all of us. Then I found this book. The other night, while I was getting into bed I noticed the most amazing thing...my husband was reading the book. At first he told me that he was just flipping through it but the next day he began telling me things he'd learned. Bless you, Pam Johnson-Bennett. This book is the best!

Well-written and easy-to-read, this book is very helpful when it comes to figuring out why your cat is or isn't acting a particular way. Ms. Johnson-Bennett offers answers and solutions that absolutely make sense. I've read numerous books on cat behavior and highly recommend this one if you're looking for advice and answers.

This book really makes you start to think like a cat and helps you understand why cats do the things they do.

I purchased this book to help our new shelter cat become well adjusted. He was either not socialized or trained to play rough. This book gave me tools to turn his behavior around. He is now becoming a pet we can enjoy without getting hurt.

This is the best cat book I have read. It is comprehensive, easy to read and full of good, useful information for cat owners. It is especially helpful for a new cat owner like me. I have read many books, web sites and magazine articles. This book has it all.

This book covers all aspects of caring for a cat in a clear, easy to understand style. Her writing style is very entertaining while providing the reader with excellent behavior advice. I would highly recommend this book.

Pam does it again! Nobody knows cats better than this woman and she proves it again in her astounding new book. This is, without a doubt, the best book on cats you'll ever read. I wouldn't be surprised to find this on the New York Times Bestseller list. I hope this author never stops writing. Wow!

Great book! I agree with most of the readers. Pam may not be a vet but she is dead on about the canned food. Dry food has little to no moisture in it, and healthy cats need a lot of moisture in their diets. They don't eat kibble in the wild. A good balance of good quality wet and dry foods is probably ideal. What cats DO need to combat the teeth issue is regular dental care - brushing the teeth regularly or cleanings every few years is essential! If you don't believe me, answer this - how would your teeth be if you never brushed them or went to the dentist?? If you don't believe her about the canned food, do your own research instead of just talking to a single vet! There are a lot of different schools of thought on this subject, even among the best vets and scholars. Information is readily available in bookstores or on the web. All in all, this is a great read, easy to understand, and I recommend this to anyone who is bringing a new kitten - young or old - into your family! As a new kitten owner, and an owner of two very healthy and happy 19 and 17 year old cats, I give this two thumbs up!!!

I read up on cat ownership sooo much before adopting a shelter kitten and found a lot of great tips in this book. My kitten turned out to be soo good (even with me as an owner) but the ONE thing I was disappointed in was that Pam claims that we should be feeding our animals canned food otherwise they won't get enough water. Turns out this isn't true and canned food actually rots their teeth faster... I had read this, but Pam is very convincing so I went with her advice, but she is a behaviorist, not a vet! My vet said I should try to get my kitten off of canned food, but it is so not easy after she's had it for so many weeks now. So, 5 stars for the tips on modifying behavior, but minus one for undermining solid veterinary medicine.
