Think Like A Cat: How to Raise a Well-Adjusted Cat--Not a Sour Puss
by Pam Johnson-Bennett
Think it's impossible to train a cat? Think again! Yes, you can learn to understand your cat. No, cats are not always aloof. No, they don't ruin furniture out of spite. Most often feline "misbehavior" is the result of owners not understanding their cat's needs. In this comprehensive book that takes readers through every step of cat ownership, Pam Johnson-Bennett helps you understand the instincts that determine feline behavior, positive and negative.

Cats on the Counter : Therapy and Training for Your Cat
by Frank Mickadeit, Larry, Dr Lachman
Cats are wonderful companions, but when they misbehave it can be challenging, if not outright difficult, to successfully treat the behavior problem in order to restore feline harmony to the home once again. In Cats on the Counter Dr. Larry Lachman uses his unique approaches, borrowed from human therapy, to analyze what makes kitty tick, and what happens when his behavior gets out of control. Using a case-by-case format, behaviorist Lachman and journalist Frank Mickadeit deal with common problems such as clawing furniture, refusing to use the litterbox or spray marking in the house, fussy eating, and fighting with other cats. Cats on the Counter is filled with fascinating stories, excellent advice, and empathy for both misbehaving pets and their long-suffering people.

The Cat Who Cried for Help : Attitudes, Emotions, and the Psychology of Cats
by Nicholas Dodman
Dr. Nicholas Dodman, professor of behavioral pharmacology at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and director of the Behavior Clinic, turns his attention to our feline friends and their mysterious minds in The Cat Who Cried for Help. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Nicholas Dodman does for feline psychology what he did for canines in his widely acclaimed The Dog Who Loved Too Much. Here he reveals the fascinating, and often frustrating, mind of one of our most popular--and certainly most independent--animal companions, and shows how we can coexist peacefully with even the stubbornest of cats.

Communicating With Your Cat
by J. Anne Helgren
An expert in feline physiology and behavior offers cat owners an approach to understanding their cats so that they can train them effectively. She discusses ways to interpret a cat's body and vocal language, and presents an overview of feline learning patterns. She also points out how cats respond to efforts at behavior modification. The book is filled with instructive full-color photos.

The Cat I.Q. Test
by Melissa Miller
From the author of The Dog I.Q. Test comes an ingenious method to test the intelligence and social skills of cats and to find out how owners measure up. Do you have a feline Einstein, or is your cat blissfully ignorant? And how well has your cat trained you? The book is packed with humorous anecdotes, unforgettable stories, and fascinating historical facts while offering new insights into the purrfect owner-cat relationship. Illustrations throughout.

Hiss and Tell: True Stories from the Files of a Cat Shrink
by Pam Johnson-Bennett
Meet Mambo, the cat who attacks his owner, but only on Sundays, and Bonsai, the cat whose dislike for the new boyfriend becomes very embarrassing. What secret does Freddie know about his owner's new wife? In this offbeat and illuminating book, feline behaviorist Pam Johnson-Bennett, takes you on the wildest house calls of her career. These stories-each of which unfolds like a mystery-will help owners better understand the ever fascinating cat psyche. Following on the success of her comprehensive book, Think Like a Cat, Johnson-Bennett sheds light on the communication breakdowns between cats and their humans.

Understanding Cats : Their History, Nature, and Behavior
by Roger K. Tabor
This is a beautifully illustrated, intelligent, straightforward book that contains just about everything you ever wanted to know about cats. It avoids the cuteness of many cat books, dealing instead with serious issues of conservation of wild cats and expressing the author's special fondness for mixed breed cats (or, as he calls them, "Moggies"), because, he maintains, they are the purest breed of cat and closest in genetics and behavior to wild cats. (Mercifully, Roger Tabor avoids the annoying affectation of using the pronoun "she" in referrence to all cats.) The historical information on how cats become our domestic pets is particularly fascinating, and the health advice and care instructions for cats are right on target and quite useful.

Why Does My Cat...?
by Sarah Heath, Russell Jones (Illustrator)
This guide to what motivates feline behavior answers such questions as "Why does my cat eat the plants?" and "Why does my cat walk on the paper I am reading?" Offering a wealth of practical advice on ways of dealing with unacceptable behavior, this book explains instincts that may be accountable for erratic and troublesome behavior. Informative and full of insights into the minds of cats, these solutions provide ways to create a healthy and loving relationship between cats and the humans who share their homes with them.
