Book Description

June 28 2004

In this companion to her successful introduction to cat behavior Think Like a Cat, Pam Johnson-Bennett, the award-winning author and feline behaviorist, shows how adding another cat to your home does not have to be the start of a kitty apocalypse. Although cats are often misunderstood as natural loners, Johnson-Bennett shows how to plan, set up, and maintain a home environment that will help multiple cats—and their owners—live in peace. Cat vs. Cat will help readers understand the importance of territory, the specialized communication cats use to establish relationships and hierarchies, and how to interpret the so-called “bad behavior” that leads so many owners to needless frustration. Offering a wealth of information on how to diffuse tension, prevent squabbles and ambushes, blend two families, or help the elder kitty in your family, Cat vs. Cat is a welcome resource for both seasoned and prospective guardians of cat families large and small.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pam has outdone herself with this fabulous book! July 14 2004
Format:Paperback
I love this book because it describes a behavior (such as petting-induced aggression), then tells you why your cat is exhibiting the behavior and gives you an actual treatment plan!
Each behavior is explained in a short, concise manner, as are the treatment plans.
I enjoyed the section where Pam tells the true effect catnip has on your cat. She goes on to tell you how to use catnip, when to use it, why to use it, etc. It really makes you understand the positive aspects!
Also, there is a section called Playtime with Pizzazz. This is wonderful! She goes through it step-by-step. Example:
• Don't forget the sound effects
• The successful pounce and capture
• Wind the action down gradually
• Don't send mixed messages to your cat
• Play tips for timid cats
• Playtime reminders
Playtime with my cats is so much fun now!

I have 3 cats and one of them was urinary marking almost every day since at least 2 years. I tried so many things to solve the problem but nothing worked out until I got this book. I now often use the play therapy when I anticipate a conflict between 2 cats. I also used the introduction technique to reintroduce the 2 cats that were always in conflict. This is a work in progress, but since I got this book, the situation has improved significantly and very quickly and my 2 cats that were perpetually in conflict begin to live peacefully together. And, most importantly, there is no more urine marking in my house!!

Don't hesitate to learn more about cat behavior, it's fascinating! This book is the cat 'bible,' the holy grail that allows me to finally understand why cats do what they do, and how to not make things worst between two cats.... often, from lack of knowing, we may do things that cause problems in the first place. If you have 2 or more cats, you will devour this book, and you will never again look at cats (anywhere) the same way!

There is a hierarchy with cats and reading their body language will take you from what you think they are communicating, often incomplete or error in our perception, to what they actually are trying to tell you. Order a copy, ready it, and pass it on to anyone who has 2 or more cats!! Knowledge will make happy cats everywhere, and happy humans too!
