Thinking about adding a second cat to the family? This essential guide on managing multi-cat households will answer all your questions and maybe even prevent a kitty apocalypse—now in an expanded and updated edition.
America's favorite cat expert and award-winning author shows how adding another cat to your home does not have to be the start of a cat vs. cat war zone. Although cats are often misunderstood as natural loners, you can readily introduce new members to your family, and keep the fur from flying. Johnson-Bennett shows how to plan, set up, and maintain a home environment that will help multiple cats--and their owners--live in peace. Cat vs. Cat will help readers understand the importance of territory, the specialized communication cats use to establish relationships and hierarchies, and how to interpret the so-called "bad behavior" that leads so many owners to needless frustration. Offering a wealth of information on how to diffuse tension, prevent squabbles and ambushes, blend two families, or help the elder kitty in your family, Cat vs. Cat is a welcome resource for both seasoned and prospective guardians of cat families large and small.
