While several books address the care of aging dogs, this is the first to consider aging cats. Its stated purpose is to educate and console the cat owner. It is estimated that there are more than 75 million cats in households across the United States and that 40 percent are "seniors" (over age seven). Industry surveys demonstrate that pets, particularly dogs and cats, are considered family by many and that people will go to great lengths and spend huge sums ($28.5 billion annually) on the care and treatment of their pets. Geared toward that vast group of concerned pet owners, this book is organized into chapters that cover the aging process and signs of decline, medical disorders, nutrition, medical care, and choices before and after death or euthanasia. Interspersed are brief, accessibly written stories and anecdotes. While the author is not a veterinarian, he did consult with vets, one of whom provides a foreword. This book fills a niche in pet literature, and most public libraries will find useful. Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., WI
