Publisher Comments:

Who says you can’t train a cat? Just when you thought you had reached the end of your ball of twine, one of America’s most popular cat behaviorists comes to the rescue of perplexed cat owners everywhere, providing practical and effective strategies for solving every feline behavior problem imaginable — from litter box issues to scratching, spraying, biting, and beyond.

Cat Whisperer Mieshelle Nagelschneider has been helping people deal with these dilemmas for two decades, achieving a near-perfect success rate. Central to her approach is a keen understanding of the unique way cats see the world — their need for safety and security, their acute territoriality, and their insatiable desire to catch and kill prey. Her proven C.A.T. cat behavior modification plan is a commonsense course of action that can be specifically tailored to your cat in the context of its behavior problems and its particular household environment. Easy-to-implement solutions help transform even the most anxiety-riddled companions into confident, gregarious, and relaxed cats who live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Inside you’ll discover

• how to harness the power of “friendly pheromones” to improve your cat’s appetite, exploration, grooming, and play

• where, when, and how to create a litter box environment that will provide ease of access and reduce anxiety for you and your cat

• how to end aggression in multiple-cat households and help your cats coexist peacefully

Is it impossible to train a cat? Not anymore! Your days of yelling and tearing your hair out in the wake of the latest household “cat-astrophe” are over. In this fascinating and indispensable book, the Cat Whisperer takes you inside the mind of a feline to explain why members of one of the world’s most inscrutable species act the way they do — and how you can convince them to change their behaviors for the sake of your peace of mind... and theirs.

Review:

"Pet-owners despairing of getting their cats to behave will find new hope in this comprehensive guide from a feline behavior expert, who, over two decades, has spent an incredible 33,000-plus hours 'observing cats and investigating clients' reports.' This book more than meets Nagelschneider's goal of guiding owners to the strategies for behavioral and environmental change needed to address issues such as urination outside the litter box and aggressiveness. One of her main points, which sounds obvious once she's pointed it out, is that in 'almost all cases in which the issue is behavioral rather than medical, in origin, the behavior that most needs to be changed is the owner's.' Nagelschneider, founder of the Cat Behavior Clinic, divides the problems into seven categories and lays out her C.A.T. Plan (Cease the unwanted cat behavior; Attract the cat to a desirable behavior or location; Transform the territory), making her case logically and clearly. Parents may be amused at her advice to treat cats or kittens that meow at night according to Dr. Ferber's controversial sleep training method. Agent: Michelle Brower, Wendy Sherman Associates."

Review:

“I wish I had read The Cat Whisperer before I started filming Must Love Cats. The cats would have liked me a lot more.” John Fulton, host of Animal Planet’s Must Love Cats

Review:

“Mieshelle Nagelschneider is a wizard at demystifying cat behavior and providing easy-to-follow steps for solving vexing problems. I dog-eared (or should I say cat-eared) so many pages for later reference that my book doesn’t want to close. Living with six demanding cats in a small house, I wish I’d had this excellent guide years ago.” Bob Tarte, author of Kitty Cornered, Enslaved by Ducks, and Foul Weather

Review:

“The reason people are so mesmerized by house cats is because they are truly miniature versions of lions, tigers, and leopards. In her book The Cat Whisperer, Mieshelle Nagelschneider explains the behavior of the house cat in an unprecedented and most accessible way, offering unique insight into the often misunderstood companion animal that is as wild as we have become civilized.” Jordan Carlton Schaul, Ph.D., contributing editor, National Geographic, and curator, Orange County Zoo

Review:

“Nagelschneider provides excellent information....Full of ‘think like a cat’ advice, Nagelschneider’s work will make for happier human-feline households.” Booklist

Judith Gips, June 11, 2014 (view all comments by Judith Gips)
fascinating and very thoughtful guide to thinking like a cat to solve any problems you and your cat(s) may have. I have consulted with cat behavior specialists in the past but her ability to analyze and problem-solve is a step above even the very best advisors I have contacted If you want to live happily with your cat for many years to come, this is the book to consult. It's hard to think like a cat, but Mieschelle Nagelschneider does an exemplary job of helping us get a grip on the barely-domesticated feline world. I suspect this book will be interesting to those interested in ethology (animal behavior) even if they do not live with cats or have no behavior problems to address with their pets.
