    Cat behavior for dummies, January 3, 2009

    This review is from: What Is My Cat Thinking?: The Essential Guide to Understanding Pet Behavior (Hardcover)

    Have you seen those “dummy” books? “What is my cat thinking?” is like that–simple and straight-to-the-point.

    When my son goes out of town, I house sit which includes cat sitting for his three cats. He gave me this book for Christmas so I could get their behavior down pat. Little does he know that I already understand cat behavior. They eat, they poop, they groom, they sleep, then they start all over again.

    According to the book, cats rub your legs for attention so that you will feed them. I think I detect a little affection in there for me, or it could be because I am about to feed them. But when I go to the bathroom, they come running to rub my legs as I sit. Surely they know they are not about to be fed in here! So, aha, proof that affection is involved!

    The most interesting thing I read was that they mark their scent on the corner of a wall or sofa in the same place and the next cat comes along, smells that scent, then marks her scent over it. It’s a constant rivalry thing that I’ve seen them do over and over.

    Thank goodness “the next generation” chapter will not be used because my son had all three of his cats spayed. Doesn’t he know you can’t have all female cats in one house?

    All in all, “What is my cat Thinking?” is a handy little reference if you don’t know much about cats. Even if you do, it is pretty much entertaining.

    The information on decoding your kitty’s body language is quite useful but simple. Might be known facts to experienced cat owners already. Useful read for first time cat owners though. Great pictures.

    The author seems to know her stuff.

    The book has an excellent lay out. Lots of pictures, easy to navigate, wonderful index, sort of like a FAQ on cat behavior.

    Everyone from the novice to experienced cat owner is likely to learn something about the subject.

    The subject itself is a little bland. Before you cat lovers all get upset about this remark, let me explain. According to Bailey the majority of cat behavior is rather simple, basic needs for safety, exploration, food, etc. Cat behavior is also rather simple: tail up or down, rub off scent, etc. This makes portions of the book repetitious. This is not a complaint. It is better to be truthful and a little bland than to invent a bunch of human response and lay those on the cat.

    All in all it’s a good book and worth owning. Cat owners won’t be disappointed.
