Editorial Reviews

Review

When it comes to felines, Jeanne Adlon is a real expert . . . In Cat Calls, her engaging and entertaining anecdotes are perfectly blended with solid, practical advice for cat owners. There's a chapter on eating, a chapter on chubby cats and plenty of diva cats who get the star treatment hey, wait a minute! I think this book is about Garfield! --Jim Davis, creator of Garfield

""Jeanne Adlon and Susan Logan have been giving top billing to cats for years now cats are clearly fascinating and mysterious, but what makes Cat Calls so entertaining are some of the more than fascinating people who happen to share their homes with felines. Woven through the LOL anecdotes is good information about cat care and welfare, even experienced cat lovers might learn I did." --Steve Dale, Certified Behavior Consultant, Author of My Pet World (Tribune Media Services); host Steve Dale's Pet World; contributing editor USA WEEKEND

"Jeanne Adlon's extraordinary life as a cat sitter in New York City is a must read for any cat lover. Her wonderful stories of the many cats she has cared for will touch your heart while her common sense advice is priceless." --Dr. Marty Becker DVM, resident veterinarian for Good Morning America, The Dr. Oz Show, and Parade Magazine and the co-author of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul and Why Do Cats Always Land on Their Feet?

The stories of Jeanne's years as a sitter are funny, sometimes frantic but always reflect her love of felines.

I've been a cat person for all of my 66 years and "discovered" this wonderful book on a local New Jersey television program, "The Pet Stop" where Ms. Adlon was interviewed by the host Dr. Brian. The stories of Jeanne's years as a sitter are funny, sometimes frantic but always reflect her love of felines. I intend to purchase additional copies of "Cat Calls" for all my kitty loving friends this Christmas. Just wish I could teach Norton, my grey and white, adopted kitty of six years,how to read!

Jeanne Adlon & Susan Logan's CAT CALLS is a treasure trove of information for new, prospective and experienced cat owners alike. It's not often that such a fun book comes with so much useful information. A must read for anyone who has ever known a cat!

Cat Calls

CAT CALLS is filled with wonderful stories from Jeanne Adlon who has been taking care of cats for thirty five years. It is obvious she loves her job as a cat sitter. The cat care advice is helpful and entertaining too. I just love this book!!!

Format: Paperback
I read this book from Cover To Cover and put it with ALL my other very special tried and true and wonderful cat books for future reference -- It IS VERY VERY SPECIAL.

To start with, we have the delightful Introduction by Jim Davis, who is none other than Garfields Cat-Dad!!! A great start to an excellent book (Oops - No, BBBT -- get away from that lasagna!!).

This is a very up-beat, enjoyable and informative book -- with cute illustrations throughout. The author deftly weaves her (30+ years' worth of) cat-sitting narratives with very useful information on raising a cat and cat care basics, plus stories about her own kitties.. She also includes information on special-needs kitties (who are lovable and are just like the special-needs humans that we know and love and care for) - as well as information on how NOT to raise a cat (no litterboxes on the exposed totally unsafe terrace please!No kitties and drop cloths either -- The kitties could suffocate!!!)), as well as quirky cats and quirky cat owners (kleenexes instead of litter in the litter-box? Big Bad Baby Twinkle -- who LOVES to hit her cat sitter on the ankles and grab her shoelaces, LOL!! -- would freak out if she set her tusch on that!!!<;-)

I LOVED her DEARLY NEEDED information on Moving and kitties. Her mantra -- as is mine -- Put the Cats in a Separate Room with The Door Closed and A Sign On The Door -- so that they do NOT get packed up in the moving boxes or flee out the front door when the movers leave it open!! Also, she imparts great information on introducing a cat to a new home, where she says to make sure there are NO exits in the new home where the cat can escape -- do you know how many cats have tried to run BACK to their OLD home?
