Publisher's Summary

“Definitely a book your cat would want you to read!”
Dr. Sarah Ellis, coauthor of The Trainable Cat

"Zazie Todd has created a must-have guide to improving your cat's life."
Modern Cat Magazine

We all love our cats and we all want them to be happy. But making our cats happy isn’t about buying them lots of things—it’s about finding out what matters to them. In Purr, animal behavior expert Zazie Todd addresses every stage of your cat’s life and offers surprising and effective advice for even the most experienced cat owner, all with the science to back it up. 

In this indispensable book, “cat lovers learn the science behind cats’ petting preferences; the multiple meanings of purrs, chirrups, and meows; how to best satisfy the scratching and stalking desires for indoor cats; and even how to keep both cats and wildlife safe if your felines spend time outside.”—Cat Warren, New York Times bestselling author 

Cat lovers will also discover how to:

  • Enrich your cat’s life through play and exercise
  • Reduce anxiety and fear around your absence, visitors, and trips to the vet
  • Train your kitten or cat without causing harm (i.e. don’t use a spray bottle!)
  • Provide for special needs like asthma
  • Make senior cats comfortable
  • And so much more!

In Purr, Zazie Todd demystifies the feline-human relationship so you can form your special bond based on your cat’s unique needs—all while learning lots and having fun together.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
