Know Your Cat Summary


Know Your Cat by Francesca Riccomini

Cats can seem mysterious to their owners. They sleep most of the day, are fiercely independent and yet can be playful and affectionate. With "Know Your Cat" you can finally unlock the mysteries of your pet's behaviour and truly get to know your feline friend. Learn how to read his expressions, tail flicks, purrs, hisses and meows. Understand why your cat grooms himself, rubs your leg, sprays and adores catnip. Solve his anti-social behaviour, such as clawing armchairs, running up curtains and drinking from the toilet. All of these secrets and more are reveled, along with features on the latest feline research and behavioral science.
