Some books are destined to stay on your "keeper shelf" forever. One such title for me is Amy Shojai's "Complete Care for Your Aging Cat". I think my copy must be a first edition because I've had it for years and years and it has proven to be an invaluable resource to me throughout my last few cats' senior years."Cat Facts: The A-Z Pet Parent's Home Care Encyclopedia" is another title that will remain on my keeper shelf for as long as I'm a cat mom. In other words, forever. It covers every medical and behavioral issue you can possibly think of in alphabetical order with symptoms, first air, home care, holistic help (LOVE THIS FEATURE!!!), vet care and prevention. I've actually already had the opportunity to use it when I started to suspect that my cat's "hairball issue" might actually be asthma.While initially appearing to be a reference guide, this book is so, so much more. Color photographs, graphics and charts accompany the text along with cross references in an easy-to-read and understandable format. It might not be a book that you read cover-to-cover (although many of us interested in "all things cat" may very well do that), it's a book to always have within easy access for when an issue occurs. And pet owners know, things often "pop up" when you least expect it so it's important to be prepared.I have tons of cat care guides in my home and this is without question the most well-researched and comprehensive title I've found. You owe it to your cat to add it to your library today!I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
This is the second informational book about cats that I've read from Amy Shojai; the first being Complete Kitten Care.I've had cats for 40+ years, but still don't understand everything about them. I tend to inhale webpages and blogposts about cats, trying to find out more, but it's so much work. That is, until I found Cat Facts: The A-to-Z Parent's Home Care Encyclopedia. I know there are a lot of books out there that give you facts about cats, but this book is unique and enjoyable because of the inclusion of beautiful photos, informative charts, and graphs, and written in a language that is easy to read. The facts are also listed alphabetically, which makes it even easier to find information that is needed. This is a book that can be used as a reference for the cat owner to find information quickly since it's alphabetized, but it's also a book that one would enjoy reading cover-to-cover!I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
I won this book from Amy and I would highly recommend to anyone who has cats. My husband and I rescue and this is going to be a great help to us. Full of wonderful information that every cat lover needs to know. Thank you, Amy, for loving our pets and helping us make their lives even better.
Amy Shojai, pet behaviorist, journalist, author, and pet parent has written a comprehensive guide to felines that should be on every cat lover's bookshelf. This 400+ page compendium is arranged alphabetically by topic. From A is for Abscess to Z is for Zoonosis, you will find over 200 entries culled from Shojai's 25+ years of experience and her interviews with more than 400 veterinarians on all matters related to feline health and well being. This book is illustrated with numerous charts, drawings, and adorable cat photos. In addition to a thorough index, three handy appendixes are included that list cat associations; resources from animal welfare groups to pet services, experts, and more; and two useful at-a-glance guides for cat breeds and symptoms for home diagnosis. Shojai is also publishing a companion dog volume to this wonderful resource for pet owners.I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
This book is, by far, one of the most comprehensive books about cat health topics I have read (other than Susan Little's 1400+ page veterinary textbook "The Cat"). As a practicing feline veterinary technician, I found the medical information to be accurate and informative while not being overwhelming. Entries were clear, concise, we'll cross-referenced and indexed, and very readable. Photographs, diagrams and charts help organize and further explain many topics. I will certainly recommend this book to the many cat parents I know!I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.EDIT: As a fun aside: My 8 year old son, an avid reader, took one look at this tome and said, "This looks like a very interesting and important book about cats. I should read it so I know how to help take care of ours."
I received a copy of this book from the author, asking for an honest review. I had thought perhaps it might be dry or dull, as it is an 'encyclopedia.' However, this book is so beautifully written that you actually want to keep reading more and more facts about cats! It was fascinating!! Additionally, the graphics are gorgeous. I never had considered that it could make such a difference in looking at a book, but it did. There are also photos to help with the definitions, of course. I appreciate that within the definitions there are helpful preventative tips, some holistic remedies along with conventional remedies. Very all-inclusive information. Owners, shelters and rescues need to have this book at the ready on their shelves.
