Library Journal Review

Have you ever wondered why cats always land on their feet or what different meows or different facial expressions mean? Veterinarian Fogle, author of Pets and Their People ( LJ 6/15/84), together with photographer Burton, explain these and other cat behavior questions in this lovely book. Photographs of birth, newborns, kittens , and mature cats trace the development of a cat's life. Feeding, handling, exercising, and practical care is briefly discussed. The 350 superb color photographs are a visual delight and capture the many habits, behavior, and antics of the cat. If you need a cat owner's manual, a better purchase might be Mary Pyles's The Everyday Cat ( LJ 2/1/91). For public libraries that need a book on cat behavior, this is an informative text that children would also enjoy and understand. Buy it if budget allows--cat owners will love it.-- Eva Lautemann, DeKalb Coll. Lib., Clarkston, Ga. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
