About the Author:

Caroline Davis is freelance pet journalist and is the author of numerous pet-care books including Choosing and Raising a Cat, also published by Hamlyn.

From Booklist:

With cats now outnumbering dogs in the U.S. pet population, it's only right that manuals on feline care proliferate. By no means should British editor (of Your Dog magazine) and journalist Davis' reference be purchased as the one and only cat book; information from specialized cat-fancy and veterinary associations are much more detailed in terms of, say, characteristics of different breeds and symptoms of various illnesses. For the new cat owner, though, she provides ample data in the tables and comparison charts, Q and A's, top tips, and good color photographs. For instance, an upfront checklist in every chapter summarizes major points to remember; the right environment, for instance, includes safe territory, sense of security, personal space, toys to satisfy the hunting instinct, and so on. And an at-a-glance vacation checklist. A sensitive introduction to America's top domestic animal. Barbara Jacobs
