El Cuidado del Gato

Sergio Alvarez, Author Rba Libros $10.1 (0p) ISBN 978-84-7901-700-2
This pocket-sized guide provides an excellent general introduction to cat care at a low cost. Alvarez does not focus on particular breeds, and although he writes from Spain, his advice is valuable for any Spanish-speaking cat owner. In under 100 pages, the book covers the most basic information about cat care, with topics such as equipment, diet, travel, and medical emergencies. However, Alvarez does not provide illustrations to complement his descriptions; a handful of simple graphics would certainly have been advantageous, especially for sections on such topics as the reproductive cycle. Nonetheless, readers who are looking for a straightforward and easy read about cat care will find this selection from the In Ten Minutes series convenient. Recommended for bookstores and public libraries. Daniel Lee, MLIS, Toronto, Ontario
