Multi-cat households post a host of challenges and introducing a new kitty to the brood may not be as smooth as you'd hoped. In ComPETability, Solving Behavior Problems in Your Multi-Cat Household, Amy Shojai does a fantastic job explaining the whys, wherefores and potential solutions to make the kitties at least be amicable towards one another.In this book, she covers everything from moving to a new home, introducing a new boyfriends or baby, to bringing in a new kitten.She breaks the book into three parts:*Part One, "Understanding ComPETability outlines the joys of a multiple cat home along with cat-specific details, including how they learn, socialize and communicate, as well as background on behavior modification and training techniques.*Part Two, "Common Problems and Practical Solutions" addresses the specifics of aggression, bathroom challenges, emotional issues, feeding concerns, and introductions in multi-cat households.*Part Three, "Common Multipet Frustrations," explains some cat idiosyncrasies that we all wonder about like why cats follow humans to the toilet. It also talks about the top behavior complaints of pet owners, many which could be solved with a little training. Many cats end up relinquished to animal shelters because of these behavioral problems, especially litter box issues.The amount of information in this book is unbelievable, even for someone who knows a tad or two about felines. She goes into group behavior, feral cat clowder society, aggression, creating a time-out for the bad kitty, having safe rooms for more timid kitties or new ones to retreat to, and much much more.
