Some useful tips throughout makes the book worthwhile. However, from what the author says, UK folks think cats should be allowed to wander unattended outdoors. I think that's equivalent to letting your 2 year old child wander outside unattended. Indoor cats can be perfectly happy and live considerably longer without threat of cars, wild animals, and cruel people.

All it takes is some patience and perseverance and, before you know it, you 2 will surely be the best of pals.

UK cat behaviourist and prolific author shares insights about cats with a dash of humour. I laughed out loud at the long list of how cats show their human that it's time to wake up (p. 38). Many worthwhile tips and interesting "cat facts."

This book is great! I have had 9 cats over the past for 30 years and I have learned a lot from this book. It offers great insight into how they think and how you can shape their behaviors. I am going to buy this book!

Repetitive and not all that useful.

"Even in the love affair between humans and cats, the path of true love never did run smooth. We fall in love with a cat, lavish him with kindness, let him sleep on the bed, take the best chair, and sometimes he treats us merely with disdain. Cats are the natural Mr. Darcy to our Elizabeth; their sense of superiority is only too clear, but somehow it attracts us." (p. 87)
