This month, the Companion Animal Psychology Book Club is reading Decoding Your Cat: The Ultimate Experts Explain Common Cat Behaviors and Reveal How to Prevent or Change Unwanted Ones by the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists and edited by Meghan E. Herron DVN DACVB, Debra F Horwitz DVM DACVB, and Carlo Siracusa DVM DACVB DECAWBM. 


From the inside cover,

"The cutting-edge, scientifically accurate, definitive book on the most common behavioural issues that cats face and how to prevent or solve them.

One of the predominant reasons that owners abandon their pets in unwanted behaviour. And while other books and guides offer tips to train pet cats, cat owners are still often left befuddled: Why is my cat acting this way?

Finally, the board-certified experts of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists provide answers: a comprehensive, easy-to-understand guide to decoding your cat. Armed with th newest science on cat behaviour, effective, veterinary-approved methods, and real-life examples, this must-have book empowers cat owners to understand why their cat acts the way he does, address behaviour problems, and ensure a happy life for their pet."

You can get the book (and all the previous choices) from my Amazon store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/animalbookclub

To join the book club, ask to join on Facebook and be sure to answer both of the questions. Members are expected to read and comment on at least 7 of the 10 books each year. If you prefer more general chit chat about animal books without a commitment to read and comment each month, you may prefer the Animal Books Facebook group. If you want to join, please do so as yourself, not as your Facebook page (even if you are an author).
