Review by Publisher Summary 2

Cat therapist Carole Wilbourn spends her life helping owners understand their feline’s day to day needs, so that human and animal can relate in a way that promotes the well-being of both. Drawing on Wilbourn’s years of experience, The Complete Guide to Understanding & Caring for Your Cat presents her methods for treating the “total cat,” and nurturing it emotionally, behaviorally, and physically. Each chapter deals with an aspect of cat behavior and health in an easy-to-follow and accessible question and answer format, including “Exercise and the Great Outdoors,” “Claws vs. Furniture,” “Emotions,” and “Choice and Introduction of a Companion for Your Cat.” From grooming to litter box problems, this guide covers just about any concern or situation that might arise.
