My rating: 5 Stars
My opinion: Can I give this book more than 5 Stars? I really feel that this book should be required reading for anyone wanting to purchase or adopt a new kitty. Ms. Nagelschneider lays out breed history, as well as instinctual causes, which lay behind unwanted cat behaviors, as well as give owners great insight as to how cats differ from the ever popular dog. Furthermore, she, in very concise writing, lays out treatment plans for the unwanted behavioral issues which force cat owners give up their feline friends to shelters at an alarming rate per year. Your kitty can not be trained like a dog and their differences should be respected.
