Inhaltsangabe: Nearly four million households in America keep at least one cat. Now, from the name you've trusted for at least nine lives comes the definitive reference for finding, keeping, and maintaining a healthy, happy pet. The Purina (TM) Encyclopedia of Cat Care is designed to answer all your questions. How do I choose the right cat? What preventive care should I give? Why do cats act the way they do, and what behaviors indicate illness? And perhaps most important, what should I do in an emergency situation? Inside you'll find:
An alphabetical, A to Z listing, with 200 entries covering everything from abscesses and hairballs to whiskers and zoonosis
Boxed charts that list symptoms for a particular condition, the corresponding home care, the comparative vet treatments, and preventative advice
A beautiful color "photo albumof forty-one feline breeds with detailed descriptions of each
A symptoms/conditions table that helps you identify what ailment might be bothering your cat
A comprehensive, easy-to-use index makes quick reference a snap
Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of national cat organizations, including animal welfare and information services, veterinary resources, and feline research foundations
And much more!
Accessible, yet comprehensive, The Purina Encyclopedia of Cat Care can be used with ease and trust. And doesn't your cat deserve the very best?
Rezension: Usually they just sleep, eat, and chase crumpled wads of paper around like they're possessed, but when your kitty starts vomiting or biting her skin till she bleeds, it's helpful to get some answers. Amy Shojai, a veterinary technician for 20 years, has compiled an encyclopedia that provides A-to-Z guidance to cat care and cat behavior. From Abscess to Zoonosis, Shojai discusses diseases and abnormal conditions as well as perfectly healthy behaviors like play-fighting, kneading, and the Flehman reaction. Shojai explains cat-grooming needs, provides information on the neutering process, describes why cats navigate so well, and explores the situations likely to cause your cat stress, the symptoms associated with stress, and how best to address said stress, once you've identified it. There's also a useful appendix introducing cat breeds and associations, and another appendix of symptoms with their associated diseases and conditions, so you can read up on the physical and character traits of the Abyssinian, Bengal, and Maine Coon, or determine that coughing could be a sign of heartworms, lungworms, or pneumonia. With extra pages listing animal welfare foundations, pet services, and veterinary resources, plus 41 color photographs illustrating popular cat breeds, Shojai's encyclopedia is accurate, easy to use, and a great resource on all things feline. --Stephanie Gold
