Cat Sense
Cat Sense: The Feline Enigma Revealed | John Bradshaw
22 posts | 14 read | 10 to read
Why do cats get stuck up trees? What makes them purr? Why do they kill? Do they really like us? What are they thinking? John Bradshaw, one of the world's leading experts on animal behaviour, overturns many of the myths surrounding cats to reveal the true nature of our most enigmatic companions: what makes them tick, how they relate to humans (and each other), and what they really need to make them happy. 'You could buy a dozen books by the many cat whisperers, cat gurus and cat therapists, but their accumulated wisdom would probably not help you understand your cats as well as Cat Sense.' Tom Cox, Observer 'Friendly and engaging, packed with excellent cat facts.' Steven Poole, Guardian 'What makes Bradshaw's book so valuable is his positive thinking. How can we make the cat less anxious? How can we help?' Lynne Truss, The Times 'Bradshaw wants us to be better owners, and draws on the latest research - much of it is his own - to show us how.' James McConnachie, Sunday Times 'A must-read for cat owners.' The Lady

@Mitch look what found it‘s meandering way to Texas! It must have had some fun stops along the way 🤣.

I love the funny kitty faces on the pillow, which is perfect for propping up books on my lap! The kitty paw post it‘s will be perfect for marking quotes and discussion points, and I love the book! I look forward to learning more about the feline enigma.

Thank you and Mel for your sweet thoughts. 💕

Mehso-so

As a cat lover, I was excited to read this book, This book wasn't exactly what I was hoping for, in terms of that. It's very, very scientific, wish isn't to say that it's a bad read, because it isn't-- it just wasn't exactly what I was looking for. The author has studied cat behavior for over 30 years, and definitely makes a point that science just hasn't studied cats in the way they have done for dogs.

Between our visit to the very crowded neighborhood pool on opening day, grocery shopping, a 🏋️‍♀️ and chores, not much reading happened today. 😟

But this is what‘s on for tonight! Tagged book is the author interviewed on the show.

tournevis I saw that. It's a Nature of Things special. I remember liking it a lot. There's a book too. 8mo
Eyelit I liked that special! 8mo
4thhouseontheleft @tournevis @Eyelit It was really cute, and educational. Maya and I needed some downtime tonight, and this is what she picked. Our one 🐈 watched with us. 😹 8mo

We live with three cats ( only because they let us!) so this was insightful!!

I picked this book up for a friend and to get some feline tips for my pursuit of being a cat whisperer to Rory. But it wasn't what I expected. It was written more in a science-y way, and it had a lot of information on cat death, which wasn't pleasant for a tender heart like mine. This is probably a great read for a more investigative/reader than I am. I mainly just skimmed it at the end.

Sometimes I resist the urge. Sometimes not.

Nothing against this book, but I keep not picking it up. I want to come back to it eventually, but life is too short and my TBR list is too long.

My TBR stack. I'm inclined to pick something lighthearted from this stack. Something in my soul is still reeling from my HDM reread.

Well written and full of good science. I loved this book and it made me completely rethink how I interacted with my cat.
