This book shows you how to observe and interpret feline behaviour so that you can then learn how to train your cat or your kitten.
Cats are now the most popular family pet in the UK and have taken over from dogs (approx. 7.7 million). Too often the cat is dismissed as an independent creature over whom owners have little, if any, control and training is thought to be limited to dogs. However, this book proves that cat training is not only possible, but can also be a lot of fun!
In Cat & Kitten Behaviour, Sarah Heath shows you how to observe and interpret feline language so that you can make sense of some of those annoying habits that threaten your relationship with your cat – whether it is scratching the carpet, bringing home dead rodents, or spraying in the house – an understanding of cat behaviour will help you to see things from a feline perspective.
