Are you excited about the kitten that you just brought home? You surely are! Kittens are cute and they can be delightful pets. But just like other animals, you will need to take good care of them. You want your cat to be healthy, happy and well-adjusted to your home and your family. This takes some patience and some caution. Cats tend to learn how to interact with the world within the first 12 weeks of their lives. This means that you will need to train and get your kitten ready for your home before it is 12 weeks old. Of course, you can still train an older kitten, but the first 12 weeks are definitely crucial. If you teach your cat during this time what you expect from her, your work will definitely become much easier later. But what do you do? Do you need to bathe your cat? Do you brush her teeth? How do you keep her safe indoors and outdoors? Do you clip her claws? How do you keep her entertained? So many questions can definitely leave you confused! But worry not; this handy guide will help you get started on raising a happy, health and well-adjusted cat.

Love your cat, but hate its bad behavior? According to The Humane Society of the United States, body language, behavior, and vocalizations are keys to understanding the feline mind. If your cat seems to be constantly aloof or is exhibiting bad behavior, you may often wish you could speak directly to it about what it is thinking. Fortunately, you can communicate and understand your pet by studying its behavior and using the techniques found throughout this book. By observing a cat’s body language and actions, we can guess at how it might be feeling. Want to know why your cat constantly hisses at strangers, frequently sulks, or attacks your feet while you are sleeping? How to Listen to Your Cat covers major aspects of feline behavior, including social behavior, protection of territory, hunting tactics, reproduction, and interaction with people and other pets. This book explores an array of behaviors often found in cats and what these behaviors should signal to their owners. Learning to communicate with your kitty can help you know when it’s hungry, ready to play, content, or lonely. You will learn the importance of positive reinforcement, details on how a cat learns, how to develop a bond with your cat, and the basics of cat training. This book explores how to teach your feline friend to use the litter box, come when you call its name, and tolerate touch and grooming. Teach your cat useful behaviors, such as walking on a leash, sitting, staying, and standing, along with fun behaviors, such as shaking hands, begging, and fetching. Comfort, fright, and hunger are the main feelings displayed among cats. The feelings result in a variety of behaviors. This book provides a breakdown of how these feelings are shown through changes in a cat’s eyes, ears, mouth, tail, and posture. The tone of a cat’s cry, the perk of its ears, and the sway of its tail can provide clues as to its intentions. This book also analyzes the different sounds cats make, including purring, hissing, spitting, and growling, and how these sounds tell owners what their cat is feeling. A variety of emotions displayed in cats will be analyzed, such as behaviors that suggest comfort, satisfaction with food, a welcomed greeting, sleepiness, safety, and much more. This book also offers photos so you can spot similar behavior in your own pet. Cats are known to have a variety of personalities. These personalities and how they relate to different breeds are explored. Tips on training your cat and preventing or stopping bad behavior are given to promote peacefully cohabitation with your feline friend. Advice is provided for addressing typical problem behaviors among cats, including destructive scratching, spraying, aggression, eating plants, and litter box issues. We have spent hundreds of hours interviewing veterinarians, animal trainers/behaviorists, and cat owners like yourself to compile useful information that will create a more harmonious relationship between you and your cat. As pet owners, we have a responsibility to ensure our pets are happy and safe; this book will serve as a tool for measuring these factors. Now, with the help of this book, you can love your cat and understand its behavior.

"Finally, a book that deals with stray cats; a how-to guide to trapping and dealing with a stray cat. As a pet owner, animal lover and director of a humane organization that deals with stray cats every day, this book gives us one more tool to offer to people who want to help the thousands of strays that wander our streets. Bravo!" Joseph J. Sprague, Jr., Executive Director, Tree House Animal Foundation "Tamara Kreuz cares about the plight of stray and feral cats and gives practical ways to help them. Individuals and shelters can benefit from this book. If those who find stray animals can themselves set about to help by finding homes for domestic strays, or by creating safe havens for feral cats, this will make life a lot easier for shelter personnel, who are all too often overburdened by the number of animals they receive. We highly recommend The Stray Cat Handbook." Louise Holton and Becky Robinson, Co-founders, Alley Cat Allies: The National Feral Cat Network "This is a must read for those considering animal rescue work. The information and suggestions provided are first rate and are based on actual experiences." Linda A.
