As a caring cat owner, you want the best for your pet. But you may not know all the special steps you need to take to raise a happy, healthy cat. Your Cat's Life was written with one purpose in mind: to give you the most up-to-date information and guidance you need about the health, nutrition, training, and care of your cat. Written by a respected veterinarian, this book shows you how to give your feline friend the best life possible--whether you've just welcomed a new kitten into your family or adopted an older cat. Most important, you'll discover the indescribable joy of raising a cat from kitten to lifelong companion--the right way. Inside--what every cat owner wants to know: • Which cat is the right one for me? • How do I choose the best food for all stages of my cat's life? • Some people say that declawing a cat is cruel. Is this true? • How do I keep my cat from tearing the draperies and scratching the furniture? • Can I give my cat people food? • Should I have my cat spayed or neutered? • What can I do about litterbox problems? • Will my cat get along with my other pets?
