Cats are lovable and funny. They are perfect little lap-warmers and attentive listeners. They can also be tenacious, persnickety, and maddeningly aloof, but that’s all part of their charm. If only you understood what elicits the purrs and what provokes the hisses!
Trust cat expert Arden Moore to explain the mysteries behind their thoughts and actions. Your kitty may not be able to tell you why she doesn’t want her dinner, but Arden Moore is happy to answer your questions about feline food preferences. She also explains the finer points of catnip, hairballs, dead birds, lap kneading, litter box problems, and other complexities of cat behavior.
Just how smart is my dog? Try draping a towel over his head and timing his “escape.”
Why does she prefer the toilet to her bowl? Because it’s always full and always cool. Keep the lid down, move the bowl to a shady spot, and add some ice.
How can I stop her from growling at my boyfriend? Clearly establish the new beau as Number 2 in your “pack.” Go for a walk; make the dog leave last. Give your boyfriend the leash; have him pass on some commands, and then have him give out the treats when she starts catching on.
Animal behavior expert Arden Moore answers these questions and more in The Dog Behavior Answer Book, part of our Answer Book series. From grooming to obedience to just knowing this member of the family a little better, this book contains everything the new or frustrated pet owner needs to know to smooth out the wrinkles in any dog’s coat!
“Had I followed Arden’s wise advice in this book, Marley might have been so good I never would have been tempted to write a book about him.”
