Except for Dr. Bruce Fogle's book: The New Encyclopedia of the Cat, I can't think of a better guide to cat care. As I embark on the delightful journey of purchasing a new kitten, my interests have become rather obsessive in the "which cat do I want to bring home" department. Do I want a pedigree, mixed breed, cute kitten or mature cat. I think I decided on the beautiful, new kitten option!So, how do I keep a new cat healthy, happy and welcome a new "baby" into the family with another cat's approval. How can I understand problems and overcome any potential problems. One idea is to put vanilla extract on each cats nose, that seemed to work very well the last time.Steve Duno has authored 11 books and is an animal behaviorist and freelance writer. He has also written: No Kitty! and Show Biz Tricks for Cats. He is well qualified to write about "The Fabulous Feline," "Cat Basics," "Problems in Paradise" and "The Wilder World of Cats."Part One discusses why cats are so popular and gives the fundamentals of feline physiology and psychology, breed information, how to choose a cat and how to establish a good feline perspective and know what cat aficionados are talking about.Part Two shows you how to feed, groom and keep your new kitty happy and well adjusted. The "Cat Basics" section was especially of interest to me as I learned how to bring a new cat home and keep things calm."A good way to help ease the cat or kitten into the home is to offer it a treat or two. Doing so will make a great first impression." -pg. 99"Cat Meets Cat" on pg. 105 tells how to keep the cat in a separate room with the door closed for at least a day or two.
