Building a lifelong, loving relationship with a cat can be a challenging task. Whether you're thinking of adopting a cat or already live with one, The Humane Society of the United States Complete Guide to Cat Care offers authoritative and practical advice that will help you make the best decisions along the way.
This comprehensive guide includes sections on choosing a healthy cat, feeding and nutrition, training, grooming, disease, vet visits, caring for an aging cat, feline first-aid kits and emergency care.
Unlike other books that endorse breeding and promote novelty or purebred cats, The Humane Society's Guide to Cat Care stresses making life better for the millions of cats already here. It provides information on rescuing and rehabilitating homeless cats, finding a stray's owner, and helping an outdoor cat make the transition to a safe indoor environment. The guide also encourages animal advocacy and offers a list of ways to get involved.
The Humane Society of the United States is the largest animal-protection organization in the country, with a constituency of more than seven million people, and is one of America's most trusted names in animal advocacy.
Wendy Christensen is an award-winning writer who has written extensively on feline topics for magazines such as Cat Fancy, Cats USA, Kittens USA, Natural Cat and Natural Pet among others. She lives in rural New Hampshire.
