Top feline behavior expert (and author of Penguin's bestselling Think Like a Cat and Cat vs. Cat) answers the 150 questions most often asked by puzzled cat owners.
Even those of us who have lived with and loved our cats for decades are constantly stymied by their seemingly inexplicable acts, or have questions about why they do what they do and where they do it, and how we can get them to not do it. Here, in one complete authoritative guide, those elusive mysteries are solved. Why does my cat lick my hair? Why does the cat only want attention when I'm on the phone? How can I introduce my cat to my new dog? How can I get my cat to like my new husband??
No one knows cats like Pam Johnson Bennett, whose pioneering thirty-year career as a cat behavior consultant has changed the way cat owners and experts alike view cats. Her books are bibles, but her fans and owners still flood her website and social media platforms with questions on topics that perplex them. Catwise combines the questions that come up most often with answers to help you solve your cat's behavior problems (or head them off before they start), or simply improve the relationship you have with your cat.
Feline behavioral expert Johnson-Bennett (Think Like a Cat) offers common-sense advice for cat owners on topics such as choosing a kitten, dealing with quirky food habits, and solving behavioral issues such as a cat not using the litter box. Using a question-and-answer format to introduce each section and then expanding on each topic, the author provides readers with succinct explanations of why cats behave as they do and how to successfully live with a cat. The book is an excellent choice for someone planning to adopt a kitten as well as for experienced cat owners with senior cats.
