Understanding What The Furry Family Member Is Telling You


We love our pets, but it's not like we have conversations with them. Even in the most tranquil moments with our animal companions, we can only wonder what they are thinking or intending to do.

But there ARE clues, even from cats. The so-called "aloof" member of the household takes center stage in the book Decoding Your Cat: The Ultimate Experts Explain Common Cat Behaviors and Reveal How to Prevent or Change Unwanted Ones.

Change? Yes, cats CAN be trained. And so can you, to better recognize what's up with your cat and how to accommodate its needs.

Meghan Herron, Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists, is one of three editors of this book of multiple authors. Dr. Herron is our guest.
