Wonderful Book on Natural Cat Care March 2 2012
By shrinking footprint - Published on Amazon.com

I love this book as it covers everything you need to know about raising your felines in a more natural, holistic way. It's filled with beautiful photographs and is an easy read. The chapter on nutrition thoroughly explains what foods are critical to a cats' diet, which foods to avoid and what supplements to add. It even supplies several recipes for homemade, species appropriate, raw meals which I am currently feeding my 4 cats. It has a chapter on vaccines which has proved to be very helpful as well as the section about herbal home remedies for common minor ailments. This book basically helps you get more in-tune with your cat physically, nutritionally, mentally and emotionally. It guides you to help him live a longer, healthier and happier life. I highly reccommend it.

9-30-2014 UPDATE: While I still love this book and all of the information it provides, I had to come back here to take away 1 star from my original review. I've been preparing a raw food diet for my 4 cats for going on 3 years now and it has been very successful. However, I was using a different recipe from another source when I first read this book. Recently I decided to try the recipes in Sandy Arora's book to provide some variety for my cats. Well there is a glaring error in the recipes, as in, an editing error I believe, in that the actual step by step instructions lack the information as to when to add the supplements to the food mixture(s). Since I'm experienced at preparing raw food already, I can guess where/when they would be added but to those looking to start this method for the first time, this would be very confusing and a bit troubling. I was willing to just overlook this error and move on but when I visited her website, holisticat, there was no where to contact her or anyone else to point out this issue with the book. Furthermore, when I registered to participate in the forums, I was informed that in order to actually post any messages or ask questions, I would have to pay a $25.00 fee. Apparently just buying her book is not enough to just get an answer to a question about it. This is a bit disappointing.

Confused Oct. 18 2014

I'd love to give this book 5 stars, as I really like the way the information is presented, but the one problem I have with the book is that I made the garlic infused olive oil by the recipe in the book, and applied it to my cats ears as the book suggested. On page 96 there is a list of herbs that should never be used internally or externally and garlic was listed...

So I love the book and do think that there is great information in it, but am totally thrown off by the books suggested external use of garlic for ear mites in one chapter, then a suggestion later in the book that garlic should never be used internally or externally...

This is a very good addition to any cat owners library. This book would make a wonderful gift,
for any cat owner. I have many very good books on cat care, but this is my new favorite.

Solid on diet, not so sound on other issues Dec 6 2012
By Laurie A. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Sandy Arora has been researching and working with holistic cat health for eight years, running a web site and email list devoted to the subject. Her book provides her reasoning behind using a raw food diet for cats, and recipes to do so, as well as hints for transitioning cats to the raw food diet. She's had remarkable success with her system, with chronically ill cats regaining health. Sadly, the recommended foods (the ideal cat diet doesn't include easily available meats like pork & beef) are expensive and frequently difficult to find- emu, rabbit, pheasant and quail aren't carried by most supermarkets, although one can raise mice pretty easily. Thankfully, she realizes that the ideal isn't reachable by most of us, and tells us what to look for- and what to look out for- in commercial foods. There is also good information on litter boxes, dental health, vet care, etc. Where she loses me is when she reaches the part about homeopathic remedies for symptoms that could signal serious illness, although she does recommend a trip to the vet for symptoms like blood in the stool.

A good, solid book for an introduction to a raw/natural diet for cats, but do research outside the book for medical issues.
