We know cats are beautiful, secretive, and independent—but even the most loyal cat owners are often baffled by their own pet's behavior. With veterinarian expert Dr. Gary Weitzman as guide, this fun book helps kids understand what cats are trying to communicate by their body language and behavior. So if you've ever wondered what Fluffy means when she's purring or moving her tail emphatically from left to right, this book is for you. It’s full of insights, expert advice, and real-life cat scenarios, and showcases more than 30 poses, so you'll soon learn what each meow and flick of the tail means.

the mysterious cat translated well


I liked the separation of cat particulars so you could look up what you were curious about and didn't have to read everything. I know alot about cats from experience and reading already but I learned some new things that helped me understand. Really a nice and enjoyable book. A keeper. I think all cat owners should read, so they can understand their cat better and be more empathic with their cat.

Great resource to give to others


I bought three of these books to give away. I volunteer at an animal shelter, specifically with cats. Periodically I will "sponsor" a cat for adoption by building a care package which will now include one of these books. This book is a great resource for anyone who's never had a cat as well as for those who are lifetime caregivers.
