From Publishers Weekly:

Crazy about cats? Fine. But even consummate cat lovers may have trouble with a book that makes suggestions like "Experiment with calling the little furball on the phone and leaving a message on the answering machine. Some cats love to hear your voice and know Mommy or Daddy is talking to them. . . . " and probes the issue "Can Kitty have a midlife crisis?" (Yes, Kitty can. The authors recommend surprising her with a new litter box or taking her on a picnic to ease her through the trauma.) Writing in collaboration with his wife, Eckstein, a pet psychologist who has ministered to pets of the stars, chides owners insensitive enough to amuse themselves with jokes at their pets' expense; discusses how to shore up a cat's self-image; and addresses the dilemma of the forlorn "latchkey kitty." The Ecksteins also offer useful information on litter training, on convincing cats to stop scratching furniture, on teaching them to walk on a leash and even to "sit" or "stay." But the cumulative impression the Ecksteins leave is that cat owners should devote nearly all their waking hours to the improvement of their pet's life. The volume merits a warning label: for fanatics only.
