This book is a wonderful combination of intelligent information and a loving tribute toward our warm, furry companions and intimate friends. The entire book is the sign of personal, cognitive, and emotional experience that leads to the raising questions about cats' existence as sentient beings. The book clearly establishes the fact that our furry friends are capable of emotional expression and their sensitivity is not a matter of mere affect but an aspect of growing awareness. The wonderful point this book makes is that to be appropriately sensitive to other beings' way is to experience them as real, breathing, and living entities. This book ultimately gives a direction by showing that the wonderful bridge of connectedness of human and other beings is possible through direct and deep experience. It is wonderful to realize that compassion is the way to learn and love.

This is the best book I have read for actually understanding the social behavior of cats in general AND the needs of sheltered cats. The Alger's observations about the interactions of feral and socialised cats are particularly poignant when describing the role of the ferals in helping their "dis-homed" companions adjust to life in the shelter after having been surrendered or abandoned by owners. I hope the Algers' reflections, teaching, and feedback on this study will lead them and others to build on this body of knowledge. This is a good direction for the shelter/sanctuary movement.

While I love both cats and dogs, I do lean towards being more of a dog lover. I've volunteered with dogs, but never cats, so this book was a really interesting read about what makes cats and their caregivers tick. The author helps us dog lovers develop a greater appreciation for our feline friends and those who work with them.

As noted in the title, this book deals with a single shelter; it is not clear whether the findings can be generalized to other sites. The author was sometimes intrusive.
