If you adopted your cat or kitten from an animal shelter, your new kitty has a past. You don't kw where she has been or the experiences she had before. Cats may seem mysterious and unpredictable to you, but the truth is that to a cat, everything she does makes sense. Once you understand feline motivations, you can more easily solve problems that arise. Happy Tabby is based on reality. Cats aren't machines, and Happy Tabby embraces the unique aspects of living with a cat, along with personal anecdotes featuring the author's two weird and wonderful felines. Written in a low-key, easy to understand style, this book is filled with practical advice on raising a cat or kitten you can live with for years to come.
