The Cat Whisperer

Why Cats Do What They Do--and How to Get Them to Do What You Want

Popular cat behaviorist Mieshelle Nagelschneider comes to the rescue of perplexed cat owners. This fascinating book provides practical and effective strategies for solving every feline behavior problem – from litter box issues to scratching, spraying, biting, their acute territoriality, their insatiable desire to catch and kill prey, and beyond.

Easy-to-implement solutions help transform even the most anxiety-riddled companions into confident, gregarious, and relaxed cats who live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Inside you’ll discover:

• how to harness the power of “friendly pheromones” to improve your cat’s appetite, exploration, grooming, and play

• where, when, and how to create a litter box environment that will provide ease of access and reduce anxiety for you and your cat

• how to end aggression in multiple-cat households and help your cats coexist peacefully

In this fascinating and indispensable book, The Cat Whisperer takes you inside the mind of a feline to explain why members of one of the world’s most inscrutable species act the way they do—and how you can convince them to change their behaviors for the sake of your peace of mind...and theirs.
