I recommend that all cat aficionados purchase this book!
Sandra L. Toney
One of my cat's issues is night-time meowing, which wakes me up, & Moore's book helped me solve the problem more than Johnson's book did.

This book is written in a question and answer format that makes it easy to read, and, also, to skip around.

I bought this book at the same time as I bought Pam Johnson's "Twisted Whiskers," & although Johnson's book is good, it's not as helpful as this book. The "Cat Behavior Answer Book" gave me a more thorough discussion of issues, & more specific solutions than Johnson's book. One of my cat's issues is night-time meowing, which wakes me up, & Moore's book helped me solve the problem more than Johnson's book did.

The number-one cause of death of cats and dogs under the age of three is preventable, behavior-related problems. Arden Moore is on a mission to change this deplorable statistic. With the publication of "The Cat Behavior Answer Book" (and its companion, "The Dog Behavior Answer Book"), Moore gives pet owners the tools and information they need to understand their cherished pets and manage any behavior challenges that arise.
Packed with enlightening answers to real questions from real cat owners about real cat problems, this book reflect Moore's own kitty expertise (she's a longtime cat mom herself) as well as the latest scientific research into the quirks and mysteries of feline behavior. Moore's advice is sound, sensible, practical and always given in a warm, friendly, supportive tone. She's never judgmental and doesn't overcomplicate things.
The compact, welcoming "handbook" format is inviting rather than intimidating, encouraging curious ailurophiles to flip to any page to listen in on Moore's warm, wise and witty advice. There's lots to learn, whether you're a new kitten parent or a veteran cat owner.
Moore deeply empathizes with cats and their humans, and understands the complex relationships they share. She knows that just a bit of help in navigating the rough spots of feline-human life can strengthen the interspecies bond -- and save cats' lives. Get this book, and join Arden Moore on her mission.

Need help trying to understand your cat? This book may or may not help, but it is full of interesting items that I had wondered about. I did not find some of the specific behavior problems that I was looking for, but I did find a usefull guide to understanding some of the bizarre behavior of my feline friend. There is a good section on how cats communicate through tail movements. This may or may not be a relavent book for problem solving, but it was interesting information.

Not what I was looking for. I've been a companion to cats for over 30 years and wanted to understand how to really take it to the next level: interpreting my kitty's meows, understanding her moods, learning how to be the best pal I could be to my BFF. This book did not provide much more than overviews. The "overview" on meow-types was very paltry and did not even mention the type of sound my cat makes when she leaves a "gift" by my door. (She's an indoor cat, but I hide a toy with cat treats in it every night and she finds it and brings it to my bedroom door as a gift. Too sweet.) I think this book would be best for brand new cat owners---I mean companions.

This is not the most amazing cat book ever. It is just another cat book. All these super positive reviews made me hope I would find answers that I haven't been able to find in dozens of other cat books, but within seconds, I knew this wasn't the book either. I looked up "spraying" in the index and all I got was Feliway for an answer, which I don't believe really works. It doesn't work on any of my eight cats. And medication, but doesn't say what medication. Just go to the vet. Gee, thanks. Like I couldn't figure that out.

As soon as "The Cat Behavior Answer Book" arrived from Amazon.com, my first thought -- even though it was a peculiar thought at the moment -- was that it would fit easily into my purse. It's not too big and bulky and, to my surprise, the durability of the cover deems it practically indestructible. That means it won't get tattered and torn in my "everything-but-the-kitchen-sink" cluttered purse. I normally take a book everywhere I go so I'll have something to read while waiting for appointments, etc. This book has been my traveling buddy all week. In fact, I could hardly put it down from beginning to end!

The amazing thing about Moore's words (the book is in question and answer format . . . which I really liked) is that I felt as if she was talking to ME personally regarding many of the questions and answers in her book. Just when I thought I knew a lot about felines, Arden Moore has shown me how much "Moore" I have to learn.

Finally, it's not a one-time-only read like many of the books I purchase. "The Cat Behavior Answer Book" might not live out its entire life in my messy purse, but I'm sure it will be nearby every time I need an answer to a critical kitty question. I recommend that all cat aficionados purchase this book! Every question and answer imaginable can be found within its pages. A "Must-Have" for every cat owner...

This book has answers to questions even your veterinarian may not know! Highly recommended for anyone who loves cats and for those who may not due to lack of understanding! Heidi Pavia-Watkins, DVM

This book is set up in an easy to read Q and A format. The information is okay, but pretty basic. I wanted a bit more information on preventing a cat from biting and it did not discuss.
