Cat Body, Cat Mind

31-5APSDkpL._SS500_.jpg

At Super Cool Pets we read a pet column by Dr. Michael W. Fox in our local newspaper. Dr. Fox is a compassionate and humane animal-lover, as well as a renowned veterinarian and animal behaviorist. In his new book Cat Body, Cat Mind: Exploring Your Cat's Consciousness and Total Well-Being he "explores the minds, hearts, and bodies of cats." If you find your cat an enigma (and who does not?) this book should help you to learn how to better care for and communicate with your furry friend.

Fox believes that cats, and all animals, have much to teach their human companions - if only humans learn how to listen. In Cat Body, Cat Mind, Fox not only teaches readers to communicate with their cats, he illuminates the extraordinary powers that cats possess - from their amazing ability to empathize to their mysterious ability to find their way home. Fox makes a terrific case for the right of cats and all animals to live safe, healthy lives, free from fear and harm. Only by better understanding and appreciating our cats and by strengthening the cat-human bond, Fox explains, can we do right by them.


Cat Body, Cat Mind also offers a holistic approach to companion-animal care and preventive medicine, including essential nutritional guidelines, as well as behavioral advice and troubleshooting that will help guarantee a healthy and happy pet.



Great book for the cat-lover from a well-respected expert.

What Pets Do While You're at Work (Paperback)--Review

51c1vCuK43L._AA240_.jpg

If you feel guilty when you leave your pets home alone, this book is for you. Yes, they may mope, mew and whine, look up at you with sad big eyes, but don't let them fool you. What Pets Do While You’re at Work by Jason Bergund and Bev West is an "unauthorized album of caught-in-the-act photos your beloved furry ones never meant for you to see". As soon as you back out the drive, they party party party.

This handy (approx 6 " x 4") paperback is filled with real-life funny pet photos and captions. Great book for laughs and a perfect stocking stuffer.
