Introduction Think of this book as your customized guide to all things C.A.T. It is filled with step-by-step guidelines, surprising tips and tricks as well as insights about your cat--all designed to ensure your feline friend enjoys a long, healthy life. A mere generation ago, most cats lived outdoors. If they were lucky, some had access to sand-filled plastic boxes for litter, cheaply made toy mice and maybe a folded blanket for a bed. They dined on food scraps or commercial food filled with grains. Many worked as mousers, ridding barns and homes of unwanted rodents. Too many only saw a veterinarian maybe once after being adopted for a first round of vaccinations. You've come a long way, kitty! Felines today enjoy the benefits of a pet revolution. New careers have been created out of this fascination with felines and other pets. In more recent times, people are flocking to careers as professional pet groomers, certified cat behaviorists, pet first aid instructors, and veterinarians who only specialize in caring for cats. Admit it, our felines influence us in what we buy, where we live and how we decorate our homes. Paw through the pages of this book and discover the hottest interior decorating trends such as catios (outdoor enclosures specifically built for indoor cats) and feline "superhighways" in living rooms. Find out how to outfox your feline so you can enjoy a sound night's sleep and learn how to turn your cat into a talented trickster. Discover how to s-t-r-e-t-c-h your family budget without sacrificing the quality of care for your cat. And heed surprising ways to maintain harmony between your cat and the family dog or bird. I am honored to be your guide for you and your 21st century cat. Ever since I was a toddler, I've shared my life with a cat or two. My feline friendship began with a cool Siamese named Corky who joined me swimming at our backyard lake and never turned down a blue gill I reeled out of the lake. My current cats answer to the names Murphy and Zeki. At 15, Murphy is an ageless feline wonder who still exhibits kitten-like energy and purrs like a diesel truck. At 5, Zeki wows audiences as my confident feline assistant whenever I give cat behavior presentations or hands-on pet first aid classes. She is a certified therapy cat and accomplished travel kitty by car and airplane. Yes, our cats have us at meow. They delight us. They fascinate us. They love us. So, it's time to cuddle up with your cat, read through these pages and learn how to truly be your cat's best friend.
