Learning The Secret Language Of Cats – Book Review
If we were to meet, it would not take long before you discovered how passionate I am about cats. Where I go – felines follow!
You’d also discover that being an informed cat parent is important to me based on the number of cat books sitting on my bookshelves!
So, it’s with great delight that I share the latest addition to my feline library – Learning The Secret Language Of Cats – A Vet’s Translation by Dr. Carol Teed, D.V.M.
Based on the title of the book, you’d expect to find lots of fascinating facts about how cats communicate their emotions through the twitch of their whiskers, the flick of their tail and other such subtleties – and Dr. Carol does not disappoint.
Dr. Carol provides you with plenty of clues to decode the not-so-secret messages your cats are sending you if you are savvy enough to hear what they’re saying. She even devotes an entire chapter to translating the cat’s meow!
But – like me, you’ll also be pleased to learn that this book contains so much more!
Learning The Secret Language Of Cats encompasses all aspects of a modern cat’s health, well-being and lifestyle and brings you current scientific research and medical information based on Dr. Carol’s personal experience as a feline veterinarian.
Some of the topics I found particularly noteworthy are Dr. Carol’s analysis of cat nutrition and what types of food are best for your cat – her behavioral insights into what stresses indoor cats (and how to alleviate them) – and her inside track on all things health-related as it pertains to your cat.
One thing I particularly liked about this book is that it isn’t just a technical treatise on how to care for your cats. Learning The Secret Language Of Cats is a tribute, based on Dr. Carol’s personal and professional experience, that will help you to love, respect and care for your cats even more!
Dr. Carol notes that “learning the language of cats is a lifelong pursuit” – but when it comes to understanding our beloved kitties, it doesn’t hurt to have a little help!
No matter whether you are living with your first kitten or your fifteenth cat, you are sure to learn something new and vital about your favorite feline in Learning The Secret Language Of Cats.
As a cat lover, I highly recommend this book to you!
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Dr. Carol Teed, D.V.M.
Dr. Carol Teed graduated from the Atlantic Veterinary College in 1990. She spent most of her career in feline specialty practice where she became fluent in the mysterious language of cats. While observing cats through their accelerated life cycle, she became fascinated by their ability to bring positive change to the lives of those they interact with.
Dr. Carol currently lives in rural Niagara, Ontario, Canada with her husband, four children, two dogs and three cats. She is working on her second book and always has a cat on her lap and two looking over her shoulder.
