  • A bunch more

You'll meet a number of interesting cats in this book through reading their stories. If you'd like to learn more about cat behavior, this book has interesting tales with examples of all kinds of interesting personalities.

You'll meet Mikey, the Carnival Cat. You'll meet Hemingway, the adopted six-toed stray who demanded attention, and taught an aloof kitty named Bella how to be more social.

You'll read about Shotsie, the Career Cat. Some cats have jobs, and Shotsie has several. Shotsie is a housekeeper, collecting any pieces of clothing that have been left out of place and bringing them to the hamper. She also taught the new kitten in the house not to scratch the furniture.

Along with Dr. Marty Becker, the book is written with Gina Spadafori, Carol Kline, and Mikkel Becker.

The book has a resources section, including details on all the writers and photographers. The book is filled with photos, including those by Maggie Swanson and Troy Snow. Make sure you see Troy Snow's article on how to take cat photos.
