Review:

If you have a cat, the answer to the title's question is, almost by definition, yes. John Wright, certified animal behaviorist, has spent much of his career making house calls to advise the distraught owners of certifiably crazy felines. He covers a wide range of topics, including multiple-cat households, stress reactions, and the urge to punish. He brings understanding and humor to situations that are not so humorous when they happen to you (e.g., when your cat pees everywhere but in the box) and offers solutions that'll make sense to both you and your cat.

About the Author:

JOHN C. WRIGHT, Ph.D., a pioneer in the field of applied animal behavior, is professor of psychology at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. One of the few Certified Animal Behaviorists in the country, he has a private practice in which he serves as a consultant to veterinarians and cat and dog owners.

Book Description Turner Publishing Company, United States, 1996. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Whether the problem is strange eating habits or a sudden personality change, aggression or post-traumatic stress, the treatment plan Dr. Wright devises is tailored to the specific cat, situation, and client. A new location for the litter box solves one case, while another requires a systematic desensitization program undertaken over several weeks. The key to some problems lies in the use of an upside-down mousetrap set on a sheet of waxed paper; others call for the client to stop punishing the cat and substitute more effective behavior modification techniques. Through these stories readers will learn why cats scratch and bite, refuse to use their litter boxes, and react in different ways to different people and other animals. They ll find out how and when to pick out a new kitten, what determines a cat s personality, how to deal with multiple cats or outside agitators, and what works and doesn t work when it comes to kitty discipline.
