How to Have a Happy Cat helps owners understand the feline mind.

July 7, 2011 4:41 pm | By Zootoo Editor Flinn D.

How to Have a Happy Cat, by Andrea McHugh, is a no-fuss, nuts-and-bolts book about how to keep your feline friend content and satisfied. The book begins with the basics of feline communication and body language before delving into ways to determine whether or not your cat is happy, and what type of kitty you might be dealing with – indoor or outdoor, fit or fat.

Readers looking for a training book with more wit and levity may feel that How to Have a Happy Cat tends to be too dry at times, even as McHugh covers such topics as cat moods and basic feline psychology. But chapters on pampering your puss and creating fun for your feline help to balance this tone.

The most useful sections of How to Have a Happy Cat are the ones that cover ways of cat-i-fying your home, as well as tips for helping the children in your family get the most out of their relationship with your cat. These sections provide some new and useful tips that I haven’t read in other books or magazines before.

Bottom line: While some readers may think that How to Have a Happy Cat is too instructional and not light-hearted enough, the book is easy to navigate. And if you’re looking for a one-stop manual for raising your cat and understanding his behavior, this book may be a good fit for you – and your feline.

Pros: Easy to navigate; provides new and useful tips on creating a cat-friendly home and family.

Cons: Advice can be too dry at times.

Iams ProActive Health Multi-Cat Chicken & Salmon Cat Food

I have 3 cats and they love this food. They eat less and walk away with a full belly. Eating less means pooping less and less litter. All around a great choice for my cats.
