this book is written by a Cat Therapist. It's an easy read. Has helpful stories and hints. If you can't remember what you've read, it's a handy book to have on hand to refer to!! :o) I would say I've read a lot more books like this that were much better as far as cat care and trying to gather information about "cat language."
From a "cat whisperer."
"A cat is a very sensitive animal. How he feels is how he acts. It is therefore very important to know how your cat is feeling.
"Some cats are very vocal, and although you can't always figure out what they want, you are aware that they do want something. There are other cats who express their feelings primarily through body language, such as a wag of the tall or the ripple of a back. If you are able to decipher your cat's feelings by how he expresses them with
his body, you will be in closer touch with what your cat is feeling.
"I try to help people understand their cats' day-to-day needs, so that
person and cat can relate in a way that promotes the emotional and
physical health of both. However, many of my cases involve cats who
have already developed emotional problems. Emotional problems
often trigger medical ones. That's why I feel it is so important to treat
the TOTAL cat."
