Synopsis: Building a lifelong, loving relationship with a cat can be a challenging task. Whether you're thinking of adopting a cat or already live with one, The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Cat Care offers authoritative and practical advice that will help you make the best decisions along the way.

This comprehensive guide includes sections on choosing a healthy cat, feeding and nutrition, training, grooming, disease, vet visits, caring for an aging cat, feline first-aid kits and emergency care.

Unlike other books that endorse breeding and promote novelty or purebred cats, The Humane Society's Guide to Cat Care stresses making life better for the millions of cats already here. It provides information on rescuing and rehabilitating homeless cats, finding a stray's owner, and helping an outdoor cat make the transition to a safe indoor environment. The guide also encourages animal advocacy and offers a list of ways to get involved.

Review: Colette once wrote, "There are no ordinary cats," and cat lovers the world over surely agree. While none of them are ordinary, they generally have similar requirements for diet, exercise, health care, and loving attention from their human companions. The Humane Society's Complete Guide to Cat Care warmly incorporates both similarities and differences to create a comprehensive guide focused on providing the best possible care, not just for your beloved pets but for the species as a whole.

Specific and detailed information is included on physical issues like nutrition, dental care, and vaccinations. Short paragraphs discussing why vegetarianism is extremely unhealthy for cats, which are carnivorous, and how to introduce them to a toothbrush are straightforward and wise--you'll find simple language and plenty of encouragement. Social and behavioral issues are also addressed, and you'll learn methods of feline communication, needs for companionship, and how best to deal with finicky eaters.

The Humane Society provides plenty of information about adoption of abandoned cats, proper sterilization for your pet, and the wisdom of letting your furry friend lead an indoors-only life. Even if you're of a different opinion on some of these matters, you'll still find a range of valuable material devoted to the well-being of your extraordinary feline companion. --Jill Lightner
