Since I got it, I have used this book more than my phone.

I purchased this book purely for the nutrition table after commercial cat food damaged my oldest cat's (he was 19) kidneys. It lines up with everything my vet told me, and then some. Unfortunately it was too little too late for the old boy, after years of grain stuffed kibble. However, this past summer I adopted a stray cat, and we intend to find homes for her kittens. They grew healthy and strong with some advice from this book, but that was not the last of it. It turned out the mama cat had another litter on the way (six of them, oh my), and I ended up needing the sections pertaining to pregnant cats, delivery, and care of newborn kittens. While some of this information is available on the internet, so is a lot of false information which conflicts with it. I save hours of my life being able to look something up without scrutinizing it for propaganda and misinformation.

Nothing Surpasses This Book

There is no better book on this subject. This is not a "You and Your Kitten" book, nor is it written with complicated language that only professionals (vets) can understand. It provides the layperson with high-level, helpful information, while always noting when it is important to seek advice from a veterinarian. It's not meant to replace veterinary care. This book is my "cat care bible", and I refer to it constantly. It's the most useful book I've ever purchased.

A Must Have for Cat Owners

Sometimes it is difficult to buy a book off the internet if you are unfamiliar with it and are not sure if it's really what you want. With a book like this, you really need to browse through it to see if it's worth the money. Well, I'm an owner of an elderly cat and decided it was time to have a book like this handy in case symptoms arose. This is, without a doubt, the best cat care book there is! Trust me, you don't need to look through it first before you buy it ~ it covers every area, illness, ANYTHING you need to help you when you are concerned about your cat's health. It explains everything in easy-to-understand text and gives you information about cats in general. I'm so glad I have this is a great reference.

Find Any Cat Concern Here!

I was given this book the first Christmas I had my first cat. The person who gave it to me is an owner of about 15-20 homeless dogs(numbers vary) and has found the dog version to be helpful. I have found this book to be a necessary item...better than many "people" guide books. I can actually have an intelligent conversation with my vet before(and if) I have to take my cats in to see him. If my vet mentions a specific malady, I can look it up and find a simple definition. It's truly user-friendly! It's a must for those new to cats AND those cat experts. I would also recommend the dog & small animal version for those to whom it applies. We need an automachanic's book that is this simple & helpful!

This is the book to buy!

As a librarian, I have access to many books on cats and their health problems; as the owner of 14 cats, I find myself consulting those books frequently. This book is the one I go to first and I am never disappointed. The quality and quantity of information is wonderful! If you only buy one book on cat health, it should be this one. If you already have a collection of books on the subject, this book will provide valuable, useful information that you won't find in any of your other books. It is an *excellent* book.

This book offers a comprehensive resource for cat owners.

This is a must-have for any cat owner. While it does help to have a basic understanding of medical terms, the book offers an in-depth resource for ailments of all types as well as information on basic cat-care. Photos throughout the book aid in visual recognition of signs and symptoms of a multitude of illnesses.
