Book Description

July 23 2008

Are you the owner of a misbehaving cat? By understanding what makes your cat tick, you can solve most common behavior problems and benefit from a closer relationship with your feline companion.

The Cat Owner's Problem Solver is an in-depth cat psychology manual that explains why cats do what they do and how their natural instincts are at the root of what we think of as "problem behaviors." The book provides countless ways to manage and modify feline behavior issues, including scratching, marking, aggressive behavior, excessive meowing, digging, and many others. It also teaches you how to prevent these problems before they occur by recognizing and addressing their potential causes, as well as how to find an animal behaviorist for when a behavior issue is too much for an owner to handle alone.

Instructive and easy to use, The Cat Owner's Problem Solver is an ideal manual both for cat owners looking to address existing behavior problems and for those with new cats who want to prevent any issues in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, lots of information and well written May 26 2010
By D. Colla - Published on
I thought this book was very well written, with a ton of information not only about how and why cats behave the way they do, but also how to handle "bad" behavior and problems associated with your Cat. I am not really sure what the other poster was talking about the book being for "females only", that is absurd, the author tends to use "she" instead of "he" when referring to cats and kittens, but certainly the vast majority of the book relates to ANY sex of cat, male or female.

At any rate, I liked the authors style and sense of humour, and the insight into feline behavior and behavior modification is very impressive. Much easier and more fun to read than other more clinical health guides and such. There is also many, many photos that are very entertaining and instructive. I would recommend this book to anyone who has a cat, female OR male.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise, and helpful Oct. 3 2012
By Clare White - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought this book to get more insight into cat behavior. I sometimes run into cats with problems during my volunteer time, and I wanted to find out how better to work with their issues. I also get a lot of questions from cat owners with problems, and I wanted to be able to give them better advice.

This book was more than worth ten bucks. It covers a variety of issues, ranging from destructive scratching to litterbox avoidance to aggression to helping your pets get along with each other. The author explains the reason(s) for the problems and helps you figure out what specifically is causing your cat's issues. She then explains how you might address that specific cause.

After buying this book, I found myself in need of a solution for my cat's sudden new biting habit. I consulted this book and was able to determine that her problem was overstimulation, and I followed the author's advice. It worked wonderfully.

"The Cat Owner's Problem Solver" is not a quick-fix book. Rather, it will help you learn how to understand your cat and permanently solve the problems that are getting in the way of your owner/pet relationship. It's also a great read if you simply want to understand cats better or are curious about pet psychology. It's not a deep or difficult read; it's short, to-the-point, and written at a reading level that's accessible to most cat owners from middle school through adulthood.

This book has been so useful to me in my work with cats and cat owners, not to mention dealing with my own kitty, that I'm considering buying a second copy for the lobby/sitting area at my Humane Society chapter's office.
5.0 out of 5 stars Really informative. Jan. 29 2014

It came in a great condition even though I bought it used. Very helpful! My cat had some extreme separation and food anxiety because of her previous home (abandoned at the apartment by herself for three weeks when her old owner went to worker brought her into the shelter). Good suggestions! My Cat from Hell because it helps for even minor anxieties or problems. Love that show!

Good book especially when I was searching for the answer to a cat spraying. The author listed a powerful product that WORKED, whereas EVERYTHING Else didn't. pg 93.
Very good book.
