With cats now the century's number one pet of choice, more people than ever are adopting them -- or are being adopted by them. Times have changed since the days when Tabby stayed out in the barn. Divorce and alienation are common. The ranks of the elderly and disabled are growing, and more men and women than ever before live alone. For all of these people, cats can often make the difference between a life of loneliness and isolation or one of warmth and caring. As an increasing number of doctors and therapists are discovering, cats' companionship can be the key to improved mental and physical health as well as to a satisfying relationship. The Companion Cat is a guide to promoting a deeper understanding of cats and a closer rapport beween owner and pet. It is also a manual for new and longtime pet owners. It offers tips on day-to-day care, feeding, grooming, health and safety precautions; diseases and symptoms; socializing a kitten; behavior problem-solving; simple tricks for fun and exercise; and a variety of services from choosing a veterinarian to arranging for air travel; even how to provide for Tabby in your will. Here you will meet famous cat lovers and cat haters, review feling history, learn how cats see, hear, smell and use body language.
