Cats may seem mysterious, but this indispensable book takes the mystery out of caring for them. Dr. Terri McGinnis, a practicing veterinarian with over twenty years' experience, clearly reviews every aspect of cat care: anatomy, daily care, diagnostic medicine, medical emergencies, home medical care, as well as breeding and reproduction. The Well Cat Book is a comprehensive, easy-to-follow guide that answers the questions cat owners ask most often about cat care:

- How can I get my cat to stop scratching the furniture?
- What does body posture indicate about my cat's mood?
- What's the right diet for a kitten, a new mother, an older cat?
- What vaccinations does my cat need, and when?
- What does it mean if my cat is feverish, excessively thirsty, or having trouble breathing?
- If I have more than one cat, what are the precautions I need to take to protect their helath?
- How can I prevent or plan my cat's pregnancy?
- If my cat has an accident, what do I do?
- Which problems can I handle myself and when do I call a veterinarian?

With over 120 illustrations, a general index for rapid reference, and an invaluable index of signs of illness, The Well Cat Book gives cat owners the knowledge, skills, and confidence to raise a well cat.
