If you’ve ever asked yourself if your cat should have an owner’s manual, The Cat Owner's Manual is the answer. This book will help you decipher all the quirks in your kitty’s behavior, like leaving mice on your doorstep or stray hairs all over your clothes.

Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, this complete manual explores hundreds of frequently asked questions, like which breeds interface best with dogs, how to maintain a quality exterior finish, and why does my model always drink from the bathtub? Whatever your concerns, you’ll find the answers here—courtesy of celebrated veterinarian Dr. David Brunner and acclaimed author Sam Stall. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for both new and experienced cat owners.

    Still needing answers

    By 4gracy on Jun 15, 2020

    I found this book to be not what I needed at the time. I needed a clearly written quick read to prep for my first feline in 40 years and this book was a quirky little owners manual comparing a cat to a mechanical object. Also the font was so small it was difficult to see.
