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.

This looks like a wonderful book for every cat lover.
I have 5 meow sons so this intrigues me beyond words!!
We have 4 inside and usually 5 outside. I say usually because we have taken care of 3 kittens since they were born in our garage and usually 2 others come to be fed.
We had, and still have, a lot to learn about them.
I would enjoy reading this book, and sharing it with my daughter who just loves cats.
You did an excellent job of reviewing this book!
Thank you so much! 🙂
I would love to win this book because with eight cats, they all have different personalities, and I am sometimes unsure what a specific cat is trying to say to me. Hugs, Janet
Thank you Create with Joy for your lovely and thoughtful review of my book. It was written with love. I found it interesting that you called it a tribute to cats because that is exactly what it was meant to be. My hope is that it will change many cat and human lives for the better and reduce surrender and euthanasia of cats due to preventable disease and behavioural problems. Many thanks, Carol Teed
Thank you for stopping by Carol – I’m glad you enjoyed the review and that I captured the essence of the book! I’m sure that those who read the book will come to appreciate cats and gain a broader understanding of cat-related issues than they already have.
I look forward to reading your second book!
Growing up my dad always brought a cat or two at home. We had some good days and bad days with them:) Now I do not own any. But the book sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing this info with us at the Home Matters Linky party. We hope you will join us again for the upcoming party!
I want to win the book because I love cats, always have, always will. I am 62 years old and still a cat lady.
Sounds like a great book! I’m always interested in learning something new about cats!
I am a CAT lover and am fascinated by these amazing creatures. Would love to read your book!
I could probably write this book, but I’d love to read it.
fab review and giveaway thanks for sharing with #readwithme x
I’d love to win this especially to find out why my little cat likes to wake me up at 4a.m.
This sounds like a great book. I love reading about the in and outs of cats. I have quite an extensive collection of cat books. Would love to add this to the collection.
Thanks for the chance!
As a cat lover and translator, I just have to read this book :))
Thank you for sharing such an interesting review. I hope that you will continue to make this type of content.
