Personally, I don't think cats are capable of emotions like resentment. I think they can be bored, jealous, shy, upset or scared. I think herbal remedies have been proven to help in certain situations. I admit I'm very skeptical about homeopathy. I'm concerned that the chapter on the "over-sexed cat" doesn't suggest NEUTERING AND SPAYING. With the tremendous overpopulation problem, neutering and spaying is a pretty humane solution.

The focus is on alternative medicinal remedies for behavioral issues in housecats.

From the back cover:
...a unique book that unites the practical experience & knowledge of cat guru Grace McHatty, with the expertise of veterinary surgeon Tim Couzens in using homoeopathy, herbalism, Bach flower remedies and aromatherapy to treat feline behavioural problems. Tim is one of only 12 vets in the UK who are qualified homoeopaths as well as qualified veterinary surgeons. Conditions dealt with range from aggression & depression through spraying and stress, with advice on the use of complementary therapies tht can alleviate distressing and sometimes long-term problems...
