Item Details

A fully revised and updated edition of the bestselling feline behavior bible. There are approximately eighty-five million cats owned as pets in the United States alone. And-thanks to her regular appearances in the media and at veterinary conferences and humane organizations-most of their owners already recognize Pam Johnson-Bennett as the authority on all things feline. Over the past ten years, the award-winning author has continued to refine her work and techniques. From basic health care to more serious behavioral issues, from training cats to use a scratching post to avoiding litter box problems this newly revised edition of Think Like a Cat covers all of a cat owner's most pressing concerns-and solidifies its position as the topic leader for years to come.

I am a dog person who knew nothing about cats. Now I know so much more about cats. Who knows...I might even rescue one.
