Written by experienced vet and cat expert Gordon Roberts, you'll learn about the history and character of the species, and get vital insights into all the challenges a cat-owner might face.

Dr. Jane's 30 Days to a Healthier, Happier Cat
By: Jane R. Bicks, DVM
Short of a veterinary textbook, this is the most readable and informative feline textbook available, for those who want to be more educated about their domestic cat's physical and emotional health. The book offers a great format, with a complete description of the necessary vitamins and minerals cats need, and arguments for which foods are best. At the time I read this book, I was making homemade food for our pets, and I found this to be a reliable resource with a problem-and-solution outline for various feline issues and challenges.
Updated edition - The idea for this book was initially conceived after I viewed the documentary, "The Paw Project", and became interested in researching the subject of declawing and the reasons this particular area of animal surgery was initially developed, and is offered to clients. This book discusses, in a respectful but factual manner, practically everything you may need to know about declawing.
Cat Behavior Problems - A collection of books from Amazon on Cat Behavior Problems and how to correct them.
