Of course, some cats may exhibit unwanted behavior and this book will also help the pet parent with handling the situation that will result in both the feline and the human being happier. As a rescuer, I have dealt with a lot of different behaviors, including taking in a feral and turning him into a furry love bug. The most common reason cats are turned out of the home, abandoned, or turned into a shelter, are litter box issues. With a little time and patience, this is a fixable issue. I have one who was abandoned near my home.

A comprehensive illustrated book that reveals why cats behave the way they do.

The Secret Life of Your Cat uncovers the biology and physiology behind the uniquely feline approach to life and, in particular, how cats have adapted to living with humans. The book examines the cat inside out, starting with a nose-to-tail explanation of how evolution has shaped this perfect little predator. Information on feral, social and age- and breed-related behaviors reveals the biological and behavioral adaptations cats have made over centuries in order to successfully live with humans.

The author also reveals what makes a cat content in its daily life, both in the house and out and about in the neighborhood. The author examines troublesome behaviors, such as aggression, toilet-troubles and turf wars, revealing their biological sources and suggesting remedies. There are also tips on the adaptations pet owners can make at home to provide a cat-friendly environment, and 240 full-color photos add romance to the text.

For the cat lover who wants to know everything about a beloved pet to the animal lover who is curious about all pets, The Secret Life of Your Cat is a richly illustrated and authoritative guide to the singular mystery that is the cat.

This is a lovely book for feline lovers - especially the color photography, with images of cats on every page turn. Most images match what is being discussed in the text.

But the book doesn't in my view really deliver on its title. There is not a great deal of actual cat psychology inside, whereas there is a deal on caring for cats. The text is at times superficial. I came away from reading this book with a better understanding of how to care for my cat, but without understanding a great deal more about how my cat actually sees the world. Better would have been the approach "your cat does x, because of y". True there are some facts spelt out in the book which can help you understand your cat better, but often the theory isn't explicitly linked to the behavior by the author. The reader has to make the link himself.

Personally I'd have been quite happy to dispense with some of the (admittedly lovely) cat photographs for more scientific information such as tables, charts and diagrams. The book contains no footnotes or bibliography so we don't know where to go for further information.

All in all it comes across as a compromise between a coffee table book and a book designed to help you look after your cat's needs better. But does it really get you into your cat's mind? I don't think it sucessfully achieves that aim, which based on the title, is apparently the aim of this book.

Reading this book and putting into practice its advice would no doubt make you a better cat owner, however.

This is definitely something every new cat owner should have. It's informative and has pictures of cats every couple of pages...they definitely help wake me up because I love cute cat pictures (especially when I am reading a part that I already know and start to get bored).

I have always been a dog person, but working in an animal hospital for 12 years has inspired a love for cats too. In my quest to find out as much as possible about this mysterious animal i have read many books on the subject. Vicky Halls does an excellent job of explaining many of the wondrous things about cats. If you are a cat lover, this book should be part of your library.

This is a great book. I am learning so much about my cat!

Book does have some good facts, but repeats a lot and doesn't go into detail nor include as much info as I had hoped.
Crazy

I ordered this book because my husband and I had rescued a shelter cat from our local SPCA and we were having many issues with him when he first came into our home. The book helped us to understand what we needed to do to help him feel more relaxed and to reduce the stress he was undergoing. I found alot of really good facts and found the book very well written. He is doing very well now and I'm so glad I have this resource to turn to when I need it.
... is not so secret anymore!

I bought 5 of these books ... one for myself and four as gifts.

Insightful and fun!
