Review by Library Journal Review

Cats have a reputation for being aloof and independent, but there are plenty of ways that their human caretakers can make their lives happy. Collins (Why Does My Dog Do That?) opens with an overview of the world through a cat's eyes, from their acute sense of smell to their keen night vision to their sensitive whiskers. Engaging a cat on their terms is essential, and cats have their own individual tastes--some may appreciate a food puzzle that satisfies their prey drive, while others might enjoy a DIY cat tower made out of cardboard boxes. Basic information about feline health is briefly covered, including tips for brushing a cat's teeth and choosing the best food. Some American readers may be surprised by the references to indoor/outdoor cats, a practice that is more commonplace in the UK, where this book was initially published. Nonetheless, there are plenty of tips for cat lovers hoping to enrich the lives of their feline companions. VERDICT While much of the information in this guide will be familiar to longtime cat caretakers, the quirky presentation is both appealing and accessible. Recommended for public library collections.--Nanette Donohue
