Présentation de l'éditeur

A fully revised and updated edition of the bestselling feline behavior bible.

There are approximately eighty-five million cats owned as pets in the United States alone. And-thanks to her regular appearances in the media and at veterinary conferences and humane organizations-most of their owners already recognize Pam Johnson-Bennett as the authority on all things feline.

The award-winning author and host of Animal Planet UK's Psycho Kitty, has continued to refine her work and techniques. From basic health care to more serious behavioral issues, from training cats to use a scratching post to avoiding litter box problems this newly revised edition of Think Like a Cat covers all of a cat parent's most pressing concerns-and solidifies its position as the topic leader for years to come.

This book is amazing. The author explains cat behaviour in a very understandable manner.

I highly recommend this book to everyone as in my eyes this is the "Cat Bible". After reading this, I felt like I could really understand my cat.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exceptionally informative book on cats and cat behavior 11 mai 2015
Par Jordan Mikena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have not finished this book yet but have gotten more than my money's worth. My plan is to reread this after completing it the first pass, and then referencing it often. I'm not actually nuts, I have good reason for my thoroughness.

My husband and I recently lost our beloved cat Isis, after 19 years together. The loss was all but devastating to us. We have a second cat, an elderly male who is now 13-years old, and was also grieving the loss. After a couple of weeks of the three of us wallowing in pain, we decided to adopt a rescue animal-companion. We left ourselves open to adopting as many as three. It would give us a total of four cats which we felt we could manage financially, but more importantly we would be able to meet the time and attention needs of a maximum of four.

Within a matter of 21 days we all but fell into three separate adoptions. The newbies range in age from about 5 months to just now 5 weeks. They had a range of issues from two of them being underweight, one being found off of the side of an expressway and the youngest that was weeks too young to be away from her mother or at the very, very least her other litter mates. Adding to our challenges has been misrepresented ages and that we brought them into the house in stages, but still rather fast.

The oldest of the new adoptees, a male that was stated to be 13-weeks, (turned out to be closer to 18 weeks) came home to us on April 14th. The next a female stated to be 13-weeks, (turned out to be closer to 7 weeks) came home on April 30th. The assumption had been that the two "13-week old kittens" would be able to play and keep one another company. In actuality after two weeks of solid meals and a safe environment, the male blossomed adding nearly three pounds in the 24 DAYS we've had him. He is no longer the scrawny, feeble-looking, nearly feral kitten that he appeared to be. He's healthy and inquisitive and wonderful!

BUT, now there is a clear 4-pound difference between these two kittens. Play must be monitored as he learns his strength and she learns her limits. Adding to that, we have a ONE-POUND kitten that came home with us on May 4th. They had represented her to be nearly 8 weeks, as it turns out she was much closer to 4. She was supposedly weaned, but "torn" is a better description. She wants to play with the others but it is even more important that limits be set for her. Adding into this collage of personalities and specific needs, we have our elderly cat. He is doing better every day but this has been no easy transition for him. So how does all of this relate to this book?

The information has been incredibly helpful! Instead of attempting to force our version of integration on each of these incredible life forms, we are seeing life from their perspectives. It changes EVERYTHING! There are so many things that never even would have crossed our minds. I'm making "puzzle feeders" for our 5-month old to help him with some of his innate need to "figure things out". He also requires a GREAT deal more release for his excess energy, where the two girls need a great deal more rest. Separate spaces, safe hiding places, access to "escape routes" from one another, all of these things are different when looked at from the floor of our house UP, rather than looking around or DOWN on what is available to them. I have rambled on way too long, but I will say that I HIGHLY recommend this book!

One quick note regarding the one-star reviews stating that this was either not informative enough or that they disagree with keeping cats inside the home, I just could not disagree more.

I had no idea of the blood types of cats, had never heard of a puzzle feeder and never considered whether or not I could have a real impact on the emotional wellness of each of these tossed-together lives on anything like the level that we have. We are doing many things now intentionally rather than accidentally bumping into ideas that may have been helpful. It feels fantastic to offer such a stable environment to them all.

When it come to the idea of keeping cats confined, I think this probably depends. If one has many acres of safe spaces for a cat then sure, in and out is probably fine. In either a suburban or urban setting this is just not the case. If one simply looks around at their neighborhood and notices the lack of weeds in the lawns due to routine weed-killing regimes, watches strays without adequate immunization, observes the number of cars in their area including distracted drivers, and considers the very real possibility of someone's intentional malice towards their cat, it changes the concept of "keeping them prisoner". Also, if one feels their home to be a prison, the cats are probably not the biggest issue they may have. Home should never feel this way to either us or our animal companions. I agreed with the author. We may debate whether or not to spay, neuter and/or declaw. We can debate whether or not they should be allowed to roam the neighborhoods or remain within the home. What we should not debate, should be able to in fact agree on, is that each of these decisions will impact the entire life cycle of another living being. They are completely dependent on us to make these decisions based not on our opinions, but rather what is in the best interest of the animals, based solely on facts. This book offers factual statements of what is in the best interest of our cats. This is a well researched book that offers those of us sharing our lives with cats, insights that we simply might not have considered or been offered in any other way.

Great book that I have already planned to also purchase in paperback for quick reference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book, especially good for those who didn't think there was all that much to learn about cats! 12 décembre 2014
Par Judith H. Shea - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm still reading this book, but I love it!! Right from the start, just looking at that adorable kitten image on the cover, I was hooked. It answers lots of questions I had (I don't have my own cat yet) and teaches me a lot about how cats think. In many cases, it's like humans think, as far as I can see!! Especially useful to me is how cats liked to be touched and not touched. Also the "click and treat' method of training kittens, I had never heard of!! Once you've read this book, you will never again think, "Cat's can't be trained." Pam Johnson-Bennett has a very warm heart for cats! You can feel it all through the book! Maybe a little less warm for people who are dumb or careless about how to treat cats in a good way!! Her writing style is lively and interesting, and is especially enjoyable in how she describes the behavior of a cats who are being treated with insensitivity by their owners. A bit of exaggeration makes you really be able to see why treating a cat without knowing what you are doing can be unpleasant for the cat—and unpleasant for you!
All kinds of things are covered, from the emotions and needs of a cat to the host of medical problems a cat can get. I learned that cats like to live not only in a horizontal world, but a vertical world (think of cats climbing trees outside, and get a cat tree) (or kitty might climb your curtains! plus be bored) There's lots about the litter box, too. Peeing outside the litter box isn't to "piss YOU off." It could be just that the box needs to be changed. But peeing on your pillow might well be to let you know she doesn't like something you or doing, or in the case of visiting boyfriends, she might not like YOU. I learned that cats need to feel they OWN certain areas in your (their) house especially when there are other cats around. Or kids, and they will keep that area marked with their scent. Even just one level on the cat tree. They tend to need their own area to feel secure. Also, there are many ways cat's don't like being touched. I sort of knew this already—but keep an eye on your cat while you are patting them—they will start to show signs that they are getting tired of it, and you might wind up with a scratch on your hand. (I remember telling my friendly visiting cat, when I was brushing her and she was getting restless and I didn't want her to scratch me (again), "It's okay if you get down when you are tired of this!" And from then on, she'd get off my lap and leave when she was ready!! One of the most important things I learned about cats is not to think of them as "aloof" and unloving just because they are not just like dogs. Cats can be very loving—just look at all the images of them you can find online with their heads resting on their owners shoulder with their eyes beatifically closed in heavenly sleep! And why do they always sit on your book or your keyboard!? They long for your attention! But we need to remember that, just like humans, if they are not treated with love and guidance as kittens, they can bear emotional scars for the rest of their lives. Oh, and I must mention how extremely important it is for each cat to have a scratching post to use (they can share, of course.) Not only does it help them to shed their claw husks, but they use it to exercise all the muscles in their body, every day, as well as relieving stress. I suppose that could be one of the most important thing I learned that I hadn't realized—how sensitive cats are to all aspects of their environment, and how stressed and anxious they can get— and how that leads to cat behavior we tend to dislike. Well, more things I've learned from this book keep coming into my mind, so I guess I'll sign off now. There will be a lot left to learn when you buy this book, which you should do if you learned about cats many years ago, as I did, when we just "had" our cats, fed them, and chased them off the kitchen counters and let them outside and inside and back outside again. ("a door is something that a cat wants to be on the other side of"—remember that joke?) Dogs got all the training methods and respect!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best cat behavior book I've read to date 21 mai 2016

Pam Johnson has revolutionized the way I see cats with this book. This book is packed with endless odes to a cat's true hunting instinct, communication constructs, and so many more grounded cat care approaches. I read it front to back within a week: it's a comprehensible read and an asset for new cat owners. I absolutely loved it and continue to reference it two months later post purchasing. I'm even thinking about getting her other book Cat vs Cat.

Thank you Pam for giving us Think Like a Cat!

I LOVE THIS BOOK! 416 pages of useful information and suggestions. My kitten is only 5 months old now.....but she is already responding well to tips and tricks in this book that I have used ... from feeding and treats to acceptable behavior. My children were born in the late 50s and early 60s......back then everybody had a copy of Dr. Spock as their right hand reference for child rearing. This book has already become my "how to" reference to insure I raise a happy well adjusted cat. The title says it all.......THINK LIKE A CAT.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitive resource to raising a healthy cat! 26 février 2012

I own every cat behavior book you have written, including Twisted Whiskers, Hiss and Tell, Tales from a Cat Shrink, and my favorite which is Think Like a Cat. This new and updated book introduces many new methods on helping cats get along, education on nutrition and reading labels, litter box and litter selection - including the much dreaded litter box problems and improper defecation. I have many other behavior books from various authors but haven't learned as much as I have in this one book. I recommend buying this book. There is not a single cat behavior problem that can't be fixed - so what are you waiting for? Read this book!
