5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific book! March 20 2001
Format:Paperback
I found this book extremely helpful. I had been looking for information on my cat's behavior problems, specifically litter box avoidance and furniture scratching, and the other books I'd tried either didn't have much information or were poorly organized, making it hard to find the info I needed. However, Communicating With Your Cat was well organized and well written, with lots of helpful information and suggestions on behavior problems. Not only does the author cover how to deal with behavior problems, but goes into a lot of detail about why they occur, so I understood what was happening and why. The book really improved my understanding of how my cat thinks. I could tell the author really cares about cats, and her suggestions worked -- Squeak scratches on her cat tree now and uses her litter box! Lots of other interesting information, too -- I particularly liked the chapters on how to develop a bond with your cat, the origins of cats, and the cat's senses. Lots of great photos and illustrations, too.
The book is a bargain. I give it five stars. Everyone owned by a cat should have this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Cat Owners March 11 2001
Format:Paperback
Helgren did a wonderful job of describing the evolution of the cat and how nature selectively created the breed of the domestic cat that is uniquely capable of loving humans just as much as we love them. The book describes cat behavior and teaches us to translate a simple meow into a meaningful sentence that we can use to establish a meaningful relationship with out feline friends. If you have ever wondered why your cats do the things they do, reading this book will explain it. Many color photos and step by step training included.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent... but, is harder than it seems! June 19 2002
Format:Paperback
Excelent pictures, writing, and presentation. However I think it would be much more interesting to invest in the main matters and not so much in tricks.
I would give 5 stars if the method of administering medication were explained more fully, as well as cleaning hears, bathing, etc...

We had just gotten a new cat and my husband needed a little educating on the ins and outs of cats. This really helped and is still used as a reference. My husband is a very loving cat owner now.
