Pam Johnson-Bennett, Certified Cat Behavior Consultant with thirty years of observing and advising experience, has written what I now consider my favorite Go-To-Bible on cat behavior. With credentials like behavior consultant for Cats Magazine, Cat Fancy’s Cat Channel, Catster, plus her U.K. series Psycho Kitty for Animal Planet, Pam clearly has a firm paw on understanding what makes our kitties hiss and purr.
CatWise answers your questions from training your kitten with Boot Camp Basics, to Litter Box Etiquette (in a chapter called Stinking Outside the Box – love it!) to Animal House – keeping peace when its reigning cats and dogs – to Old Friends, making the most of their golden years.
I consulted all of the above chapters and despite my umpteen years steeped in everything feline, I learned something new.
This book would be the purrrfect (sorry) gift for a newbie cat owner, but also for someone like me. Despite a lifetime of experience in a multi-cat home, my cats are still finding ways to tell me I don’t know everything.
CatWise is available October 18, 2016, just in time to kick off your Christmas shopping for the cat people in your life.
I received an unsolicited copy of CatWise free-of-charge from Penguin Random House publisher. My opinion regarding this book is my own, and not in any way influenced by Penguin Random House or author.
