of the above, Richard Pitcairn, D.V.M., and his wife, Susan Hubble Pitcairn,
M.S., offer a comprehensive "quick reference" section on animal
illnesses, organized alphabetically and including a brief description

My Patients Are Under the Bed by Louis J. Camuti, Marilyn Frankel (Contributor), Haskel Frankel (Contributor)
Doctor Louis Camuti tended an amazing variety of cats in New York City,
owned by a more amazing variety of famous artists, authors, Broadway and
motion picture stars, producers, and executives. His insight into the
owners is sometimes juicier than his insight into their cats (which is
considerable). Along the way, he tells us useful facts. Cats are not fussy
eaters, for example. They just try to outfox their owners into paying
a fortune for fancy food. It's a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing book.
