"What baby expert Dr. Benjamin Spock did for people, kitten expert Amy Shojai has done for cats...Everything you need to know to begin a blissful life with your kitty." --Ed Sayres, President, San Francisco SPCA
"When you purchase a kitten, there should be four requirements by law: food, water dish, litter box, and this book." --Steve Dale, CABC, pet expert and syndicated newspaper columnist "My Pet World"
From the Author
Both of my kitties showed up as dumped kittens on the back porch. WHO would throw away such wonderful creatures?! While both of them are now grown-up cats, the kitten inside still comes to the surface and quite a lot of Seren-Kitty's experiences you'll find in this COMPLETE KITTEN CARE book (even her picture). I used the introduction section on cat-to-dog and cat-to-cat when first Magic arrived and then just last year Karma showed up. The leash training and crate training tips I've also used with my furry wonders, and of course all the kitten care and health information applies to mine--and your cats, too.
Kitten-hood lasts such a short time, and we want it to be sweet and fun for both the baby and us. And we want the relationship we create during this time to last nine-lives and beyond. All the information (and the SQUEEE! cute kitten pictures) are designed to help you do that.
I'm sharing these tips because not everyone can afford or can locate a qualified cat behavior consultant. You'll find prescriptive how-to advice here, and in my other cat behavior and cat health care books, for as your kitten grows into an adult cat. Since most of us have more that one cat, you may want to take a look at one of my other books sooner rather than later.
