- A poison first aid chart
- A comprehensive, easy-to-use index for quick reference
- Contact information for dozens of cat organizations and veterinary resources
and much much more.
This book is an invaluable resource for cat owners. It’s a great learning resource for new cat guardians, a helpful starting point if you’re trying to figure out whether something might be wrong with your cat, and a supportive resource if your cat has been diagnosed with a disease and you want to get more information. Shojai’s thorough explanations are easy to understand without overwhelming the reader.
I loved almost everything about this book – the only part that didn’t resonate with me was the section on diet and nutrition. Pet nutrition is a controversial subject, and Amy’s take on it does not reflect my recommendations. Despite this, I consider Cat Facts one of the best organized and easiest to use cat care guides I’ve seen (and I see a lot of them.) Amy’s easily accessible writing makes it a pleasure to read, and even experienced cat guardians will learn something new. Cat Facts makes a wonderful addition to any cat care library.
Cat Facts: The Pet Parent’s A-Z Home Care Encyclopedia is available from Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.
