Summary
A feline behaviorist and founder of the Cat Behavior Clinic offers advice on how to address common problems ranging from litter-box issues and scratching to spraying and biting by training a cat in accordance with feline-specific strategies. Who says you can't train a cat? Just when you thought you had reached the end of your ball of twine, the author, a cat behaviorist comes to the rescue of perplexed cat owners everywhere, providing practical and effective strategies for solving every feline behavior problem imaginable. The author has been helping people deal with these dilemmas for two decades, achieving a near-perfect success rate. Central to her approach is a keen understanding of the unique way cats see the world, their need for safety and security, their acute territoriality, and their insatiable desire to catch and kill prey. Her proven C.A.T. cat behavior modification plan is a commonsense course of action that can be specifically tailored to your cat in the context of its behavior problems and its particular household environment. Her solutions help transform even the most anxiety-riddled companions into confident, gregarious, and relaxed cats who live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Inside you will discover: how to harness the power of "friendly pheromones" to improve your cat's appetite, exploration, grooming, and play ; Where, when, and how to create a litter box environment that will provide ease of access and reduce anxiety for you and your cat ; How to end aggression in multiple-cat households and help your cats coexist peacefully. Is it impossible to train a cat? Not anymore! Your days of yelling and tearing your hair out in the wake of the latest household "cat-astrophe" are over. In this book, the author takes you inside the mind of a feline to explain why members of one of the world's most inscrutable species act the way they do, and how you can convince them to change their behaviors for the sake of your peace of mind and theirs
