Amy Shojai is a brilliant author, blogger, pet behaviorist, etc. In this book and with her many years of experience she covers every imaginable subject concerning cats and explains them in such a way that anyone can understand them. I can honestly say that after decades of owning cats she explains things more concise and in greater detail than any veterinarian my cats have ever seen. This book will definitely go on my bookshelf for reference for many years to come." --Patricia Hubbard, cat owner
