Thank you, Auntie Ellen, for giving me the opportunity to give 4 paws up for two new great books! Hi, everyone! We have recently heard two authors interviewed on public radio, and their books have also been reviewed in various newspapers. These two books should definitely join your libraries!
Pets on the Couch, by Nicholas Dodman, DVM and professor at Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Dodman has written several books about animal psychology and behavior, and this one takes us into the inner thought processes of some of the pets he’s cared for over the years. While they’re not all cats, the book certainly includes cats!
Dr. Dodman discusses pet problems and solutions in a very down-to-earth way, so our pawrents can maybe help solve some of our challenges and foibles! The pioneering veterinarian and author of the New York Times bestseller, The Dog Who Loved Too Much, and the national bestseller, The Cat Who Cried for Help, recounts his stories of treating animals for human-like problems, while discussing his amazing breakthroughs with the new science of One Medicine.
” Inspiring, sometimes heartbreaking, and utterly fascinating, Pets on the Couch demonstrates how what we share with our animals can only lead us to a greater appreciation for them—and our mutual bonds.” book review excerpt
The Trainable Cat, by writer John Bradshaw and Sarah Ellis, feline behaviorist. Mr. Bradshaw has published other books about dog and cat behaviors, and he has teamed up with Ms. Ellis to tackle our feline challenges!! This book covers many cat behaviors that can be solved, including litter box problems, introducing new cats into the household, and dealing with cat phobias and eccentricities! Wow, maybe our pawrents should NOT read it. Can we possibly be tamed?
Happy reading, dear 15 and Meowing Fans!
Thank you Maggie, I plan to read both of these books.
I am a bad Mommy, yesterday was Sammy and Joanie’s 11th 19birthday and I forgot to write about it. Joanie’s sweet boyfriend Simon and his family made cards for them:
And our dear friend Sammy K made a card for Joanie. He felt bad for her when he heard she had to go to the evil vet on her birthday. She just turned 11 which seemed too young to be going deaf. Turns out, her
stupid Mom has been packing the wax in her ear when she uses Qtips.
And for P.S. Annie’s 19-Somethin Challenge the question is, What was your childhood home like? It was a very big old house, I miss the radiators, they were great for warming clothes. The house was sold in 2003, sadly, there was a fire last year that completely destroyed it.
