We are a five cat household. All five are rescues and two are feral brother and sister cats. We have managed to socialize all of them into one colony where they get along and respect the Queen (although she is not the highest in the pecking order). The book explains in good detail how important the feline hierarchy is and how this hierarchy is often expressed in vertical space. I had personally studied about this aspect and have seen it in my own cats but was delighted to read a good explanation about it.
This is a fantastic book for those in multiple cat households who may or may not be encountering tension between cats. The book explains territories and hierarchies very well. Understanding the importance of these two aspects in a feline's life will help everything else come together and make sense.
I recommend the book as a great resource for all of those who have multiple feline households or are contemplating bringing another feline into the fold. Think about it and read about it -- you will be happy you did.
UPDATE June 24, 2010: Another stray whose been in the wild for a while (but is definitely a domestic cat) has chosen us as his new family. I grabbed this book off my shelf as a refresher and it's as relevant as ever. Taking the new introduction nice and slow with our other 5 cats (two ferals) and things are going well. Working through some expected marking behaviors but am confident we can get our little "Tuxedo Joe" on track as he becomes more comfortable. A book like this is a MUST for multiple cat households or anyone that just wants to understand cat behavior well. Great book ... still :)
UPDATE June 15 2010: The newest stray is integrated with the other 5 and unbelievably all using one litter box. I don't recommend this but they decided this is they way they want to do things. I use Pine litter such as Feline Pine for anyone who is curious. I also used Feliway spray and various enzyme cleaners. Smells are gone and cats are happy and still doing some territory adjusting (to be expected). Very nice integration. This book is extremely helpful!
Among other things she tells you step by step how to introduce new members, how to correct behavior problems, she explains cats hierarchy within your home and how this order can be upset. I actually solved a big issue here at home, with one on my male adult cats who kept spraying on the wall behind de litterbox. The books points you the way to become sort of a detective and figure things out to keep everyone happy and sane. I'm looking forward to trying many other advices here at home and improve my cats' lives. And I'm sure I'll read her other books sometime in the near future. At the end of the book there are many websites listed that can help you with many issues (toys, cat trees, food, health, etc).
