From the Publisher:
Cats have been popular household pets for thousands of years, and their numbers only continue to rise. Today there are three cats for every dog on the planet, and yet cats remain more mysterious, even to their most adoring owners. In Cat Sense, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-edge scientific research to explain the true nature?and needs?of our feline friends. Tracing the cat?s evolution from solitary hunter to domesticated companion, Bradshaw shows that cats remain independent, predatory, and wary of social contact, qualities that often clash with the demands of our modern lifestyles. If we?re to live in harmony with cats, Bradshaw contends, we first need to understand and adapt to their ancient quirks.
|A must-read for any cat lover, Cat Sense challenges our most basic assumptions about cats and promises to dramatically improve their lives?and ours.
The author of many best-selling books, John Bradshaw was born and raised in Houston, Texas, in a troubled family, a fact he acknowledges in his writings. He completed his education in Canada, earning three degrees from the University of Toronto. Bradshaw studied for the priesthood and has been a counselor, theologian, and public speaker. He is known as the host of several widely watched PBS television series, including "The Family: Homecoming"and "Bradshaw on Family Secrets". Bradshaw made the term "the inner child" a household word.
"Readable, practical, and original, this is likely to become the go-to book for understanding cat behavior." 07/01/2013
