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!

The advise that Ms. Adlon passed along is really great and any new cat owner would enjoy such a reference book. What I object is that the stories are short antidotes of her experiences. I was hoping for a book that would be more stories that would point to advise that was provided in the book. the book was enjoyable but forgetable.

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?
