What do you do to promote harmonious relations when your cat hates your boyfriend? How do you raise kittens that will interact well with children? How do cats learn? Can you teach your cat to ring the doorbell or play dead? Are some cats despots? How do you know if a cat is depressed? Stressed? Sick? Happy? In fourteen information-packed chapters, H. Ellen Whiteley, D.V.M., answers these and hundreds of other vital questions. Each chapter includes a letter from a concerned cat owner, and Dr. Whiteley's advice to that owner.
Whiteley draws upon her experience as a house-call veterinarian for felines and her years as pet columnist for publications such as The Saturday Evening Post, Woman's World, and Cats to write a book filled with interesting and insighful anecdotes about patients, clients, and readers that will keep you turning pages long after you've discovered the answers to your specific questions.From the Author:
Several years ago I decided to open a house-call veterinary service for cats, not because I had a wealth of knowledge, but because I like cats. I learned about and increased my understanding of cats by observing them in their home environments, talking to pet owners who were clients, and hearing from readers of my columns.
Writing this book also increased my knowledge and understanding of patients, clients, and myself. I hope that this offering of personal experiences, my own and that of others, and research in the field of animal behavior enables you to train or retrain your cat or kitten, and enhances your understanding of the felines that occupy your heart and home.
