We know cats are beautiful, secretive, and independent ... but even the most loyal cat owners are often baffled by their own pet's behavior. With veterinarian expert Dr. Gary Weitzman as guide, this fun book helps kids understand what cats are trying to communicate by their body language and behavior. So if you've ever wondered what Fluffy means when she's purring or moving her tail emphatically from left to right—this book is for you! It's full of insights, expert advice, and real-life cat scenarios, and showcases more than 30 poses, so you'll soon learn what each meow and flick of the tail means!

    Hey readers! I got this book from the library, and I thought it was really cool. Have you ever wondered what it means when your cat rolls over on its back, with its feet in the air? My cat used to do that all the time. I used to try to rub her belly - I thought she wanted a belly rub. That's a dog thing, and now I know it! What it really means is that Ms. Player wanted attention. After I read the book, that's what she got! Sports_Star, OUT!
