While cat owners love their purring, fuzzy friends, cats can have another, rather unpleasant, side. Some cats spray; defecate and urinate on carpets, in corners, in shoes, on visitors' leather jackets; shred upholstery; chomp houseplants; ambush guests; caterwaul at all hours; and scratch and bite children, sometimes causing serious injuries and infections. Sceptics will claim that it's impossible to train a cat. Happily, Wendy Christensen knows they're wrong. True, cats are intelligent, adaptable, patient, independent, stubborn, observant, and extremely quick learners. But they're also remarkably self-interested and quick to exploit a good deal. Outwitting a cat means persuading the cat that what you want is also what he wants. Whatever your immediate, urgent specific cat problem - aggression, bullying, clinginess and refusal to eat - you'll find answers here. Wendy Christensen can tell you what works - and what doesn't. What to do right away - and what never to do. She'll share tips and cat-and-owner-tested secrets to reversing, redirecting, and solving - for good - even the thorniest behaviour problems. And she'll tell you how to head off future problems, simply by understanding how your cat thinks.

Recensioner i media

"Since virtually all the problems that people have with their pets result not from the animals themselves but from their owners' lack of information, this book could go a very long way toward mitigating that. People who live in cities or suburbs should be especially grateful for this book, which offers many possible remedies for the difficulties experienced by outdoor cats. I couldn't think of a single question that wasn't answered helpfully by this excellent book." -- Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, author of "Tribe of Tiger" and "The Hidden Life of Dogs" "Here's a book your cat would have written for you. Anyone who has a cat, wants a cat or wants to know a cat should read this loving, lucid, comprehensive handbook. It's a gem." --Sy Montgomery, author of "Spell of the Tiger," "Journey of the Pink Dolphins" and "Walking with the Great Apes" "Wendy Christensen is a talented and lyrical writer. This book is filled with solid information designed to help feline advocates make responsible choices. As usual, Wendy's concern, compassion, dedication and love for cats shine through every word. I am a fan!" -- Amy D.

Refreshingly honest, and extensively researched by award-winning author, Wendy Christensen, the Guide to Cat Care helps us enrich our cats' lives. Since early Egyptians made altars to their felines, generations of cat lovers have followed in their timeless footsteps.
