Celia Haddon’s great understanding of all things feline is expounded in this witty, informative book. Written as an extension to an earlier book ‘How to read your cat’s mind’, it contains many important additions, including better explanations of what makes cats behave as they do. 

Punctuated purrfectly by Gray Jolliffe’s whimsical cartoons of cats in a variety of situations plus witty captions, this book is an interesting and informative read.

To any one who lives with the constant mystery of why their cat behaves in the way it does, this book will certainly dispel many of those myths.

In the introduction on page 10 of this book, Celia writes: ‘What a gulf separates us – the clever upright apes who have learned to travel in space – from the small, desert carnivores who cannot even use words. Yet love spans this great divide, linking two different species in a loving relationship. We spend our lives together, most of the time with contentment. Indeed, the cat-human relationship sometimes works better than marriage.’


How true this last remark is! The book will go on to explain the cat’s basic instincts, and outline what a cat needs to have a happy home, exploring some of the common misunderstandings in the cat-human relationship to help you to make your cat happy. It will also describe some of the special needs of pedigree cats, and cats that are kept indoors, and help you pamper your elderly cat.

‘The happiness of your cat really matters.’

I really enjoyed this book. Celia’s writing style is easy and flowing and she writes in a non-preachy way. Much of a cat’s behaviour is in response to its human’s behaviour, but there are inherited traits which have been instilled since God created the world – and the masterpiece that is The Cat. This book will help the reader to understand their cat better.

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."

Roger A Caras
