DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Based on cutting edge science, this bestselling book on the inner lives of cats is "for any who may wonder what their feline companions are really thinking" (The New York Times). In Cat Sense, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-edge scientific research to dispel lingering myths and explain the true nature of our feline friends. Tracing the cat's evolution from lone predator to domesticated companion, Bradshaw shows that although cats and humans have lived together for eight thousand years, cats remain independent, predatory, and wary of contact with their own kind, qualities that often clash with our modern lifestyles. To live in harmony with our cats, Bradshaw explains, we first need to understand their inherited quirks including understanding their body language, and managing both their natural hunting instincts and their relationships with other cats. A must-read for any cat lover, Cat Sense offers humane, penetrating insights about the domestic cat that challenge our most basic assumptions and promise to dramatically improve our pets' lives -- and ours.

This book is his most comprehensive guide yet to cat behavior and basic cat care, rooted in understanding cats better.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Have you ever wondered what your cat is saying? Cats do not meow randomly, nor do they growl or hiss because they have nothing better to do. Cat sounds have a purpose, and they can carry important messages, whether for us or other cats. Susanne Schötz is hard at work on breaking the cat code. She is a professor at Lund University in Sweden, where a long-standing research program is proving that cats do actually use vocal communication—with each other and with their human caretakers. Understanding the vocal strategies used in human-cat communication will have profound implications for how we communicate with our pets, and has the potential to improve the relationship between animals and humans within several fields, including animal therapy, veterinary medicine and animal sheltering. In The Secret Language of Cats, Schötz offers a crash course in the phonetic study of cat sounds. She introduces us to the full range of feline vocalizations and explains what they can mean in different situations, and she gives practical tips to help us understand our cats better.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Paul Kunkel’s foolproof, tried-and-true 21 day program teaches any litter-trained cat to use a toilet instead of a litter box. It doesn’t require anything fancy—a toilet, a stack of magazines or newspapers, masking tape, plastic wrap, a supply of cat litter, and a litter box—and it’s the perfect program for anyone who wants a happier, healthier cat. The program begins with you placing the litter box next to the toilet, and ends with your beloved cat using the toilet—just like any other member of the family. For life. Along the way, owners learn why toilet-training is beneficial to cats. In well-researched, totally updated, fact-filled text, Kunkel traces the history of this mysterious animal, and explains why many cats equate the smell of a litter box with danger; why the fragrances, deodorants, dyes, and disinfectants found in most litters are detrimental to your cat’s well-being; and why the decision to transition to the toilet is one that will benefit both you and your cat. No more litter box, no more litter, no more cleaning—and no more smell!
