Cat Body Language looks at all the postures cats are likely to adopt in and around the home, both with other cats and with their owners. Using the psychology of cat behaviour, it explains how a cat is likely to react in stressful situations, such as during a visit to the vet, when it is ill, and before or after a fight. All the most common behavioural traits of cats are examined in detail, from raking the dirt in the backyard and kneading their paws while being stroked to chattering their teeth at flying birds and meowing when a can of food is opened. Also included is a whole section devoted to the cat’s most expressive body part – the tail. Cat Body Language is an easy-to-use reference guide that enables cat owners to read the signals their pets are giving through their body language. Cats are often regarded as being part of the family, and this book will help readers understand more about their quiet companions.

Kittens are not cats. They have their own very specific needs and challenges. They may scratch furniture, chew on cords, and just generally cause trouble-all while looking adorably innocent. Their first year will be one in which they learn how to use a litter box; that nipping at hands and feet is not tolerated; and how to go to sleep when you do, so their play doesn't keep you up all night. It will be your job to teach them appropriate behavior. 'The Secret Language of Kittens' is your partner during this first year, your one-stop guide when looking for answers. It takes the mystery out of kitten communication, giving you the insight needed to raise a kitten into a happy, well-behaved cat. Learn to translate the vocal communication, behavior, and body language of your kitten. Understand how your kitten sees the world. Know how your attempts at communication and interaction are interpreted, and get guidance on kitten care. As this book shows, there are no bad kittens, only owners who don't yet understand their kitten's 'secret language.'

Animal Body Language is part of the R.U.F.F. Program, innovative animal based teaching. This curriculum was developed after children were bitten by dogs running around Chinle. One little boy ended up with a scar from the top of his forehead angled down to his chin. He had crawled under a trailer and tried to pet a dog and was savagely bitten in the face. This small boy had his life forever changed from this horrible incident. Something had to be in the schools to help the children understand more about dog behavior to avoid incidents like this. This curriculum is complete and has thematic unit tie-ins in social studies, language, behavior, safety issues, reading, art, writing and drama. There are suggested student activities that involve games, quizzes, animal behavior board set-up ideas, journal and creative writing. Animals helped extrapolate expressions of emotions and incorporated self-esteem where all else had failed. It teaches responsible behavior that proved extremely effective.

A guide for the cat lovers about the cat behavior, cat attractants, cat breeds, cat health and food, type of cats, cats as pets, fictional cats, films about cats, historical cats. A book full with pictures of the most important cat breeds, tips and advice for cat behavior, cat diseases and how to take care of the cats. The cat, also called the domestic cat or house cat, is a small feline carnivorous mammal of the subspecies Felis silvestris catus. Its most immediate pre-domestication ancestor is the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica. The cat has been living in close association with humans for at least 3,500 years; the Ancient Egyptians routinely used cats to keep mice and other rodents (mostly rats) away from their grain (and also believed that cats were sacred to the goddess Bastet). The history of the domestic cat may stretch back even further, as 8,000-year-old bones of humans and cats were found buried together on the island of Cyprus.

There are cat people, and there are dog people—and then there are cat and dog people. For those of us who love both, Cats and Dogs offers invaluable tips and strategies for living with pets and taking a look at the world from their point of view. Praise for Cats and Dogs “Frania Shelley-Grielen combines personal affection for animals, a synthesis of a wide range of research in animal biology, and long experience as an animal behaviorist to give a unique and insightful account into the social and interactive lives of animals. She not only dispels common myths (cats are solitary) and answers important questions for humans seeking to share their lives with animals (how to choose the right match, how to introduce animals to your home, etc.); she also gives us a picture of the mental lives of animals and helps us to understand ‘where they are coming from.’ She addresses animal communication and indicates conclusively that not only are nonhuman animals capable of it, but that humans usually fail to pay heed to important ways that animals express their moods, dispositions, and desires…. This book combines vital practical information for improving the shared lives of human and nonhuman animals; it also peers behind the curtain of important cutting-edge research in animal mind and sociality to give us a glimpse of what amounts to no less than a renaissance in our human understanding of the matter.” —Jeffrey Bussolini, BSFS, PhD, feline sociologist, co-director, Center for Feline Studies/ABMSC
