What's My Cat Thinking?
Unlock the secret code of cats for a deeper connection with the feline in your life.
Why does my cat always want to sleep on my computer keyboard? How can I keep her from bullying the dog? This used to be her favorite food, but now she won't touch it! Why will she only drink from the bathroom faucet? Does she actually like me? If you've ever wondered, as she sits on your head at 4am, what on earth is going on beyond your cat's inscrutable gaze, this book has the answers. Drawing on extensive animal behavior psychology and the latest research, it reveals what's really behind those things cats do--whether they're amusing, irritating, or just downright bizarre.
Cats may not telegraph their emotions (unlike the dogs they look down on), but they do show their feelings, often quite subtly, in the way they relate to you, other animals, and their home environment. With gorgeous and accurate illustrations across a range of breeds, this book helps you read and interpret your cat's body language and behaviors, so you'll know when she's confident and contented, and when she's telling you that something's not right. Advanced Catwatching features put the spotlight on key behaviors such as sofa scratching, while strategic Survival Guides offer five top tips for successfully managing challenges such as moving to a new house, or introducing a new cat into the family. What's My Cat Thinking? will deepen your understanding of your cat's needs and wants and strengthen the unique connection between you. So when she gives you that 4am wake-up call, at least you'll know why.
