The Trainable Cat: A Practical Guide to Making Life Happier for You and Your Cat

John Bradshaw and Sarah Ellis. Basic, $27.99 (352p) ISBN 978-0-465-05090-1
Renowned anthrozoologist Bradshaw (Cat Sense and Dog Sense) and feline behavioral specialist Ellis provide readers with a comprehensive look at what motivates cats, and explain how to train cats by understanding the way they perceive the world. Training cats, the authors assert, benefits owners and cats by making shared environments less stressful for cats and more pleasant for all. Practical training tips and explanations as to why cats behave as they do—such as scratching furniture or attacking their owner’s feet—are provided in each chapter. Exercises include crate training a cat, ensuring tranquility in multicat or multi-animal homes, and safely clipping a cat’s claws. Cat lovers will appreciate the sensible advice and in-depth explanations of feline behavior. (Sept.)
