By Richard Smith
This is a book for cat people, those who love cats, are owned by cats, or want to try to understand cats.
Divided into sections, Richard Smith makes a humorous attempt to help people understand cats. Some questions are posed to Richard, in which he addresses issues to the cat owner, including illustrations.
Issues range in topic. A common one is why cats seem to ignore their owners, or seem to “fake” interest. There are also questions regarding aggressive behaviour, why they do it and how it should be handled.
Richard helps with tips in making and keeping cats happy, though he wonders if cats ever can be. He tries to decipher if cats are ever really into you, or really just themselves.
The book offers quizzes, checklists, pledges, lists of rules, do’s, don’ts, games, and advisories. Richard’s book is humorous, fun and yet informative. His advice is realistic, practical, and useful, and his explanations are sensible. The illustrations are amusing, adding levity and enjoyment to the book.
