Even though this is a dog blog, I am always happy to consider doing a blog about a species other than the beloved canine. As a cat lover and former cat parent, I find cats a fun topic.
I mentioned in a previous blog about cats, that during a training session with the family dog I sometimes include a little cat training as well. If I am not hands on with the cat I offer suggestions on introducing the two species and how to maintain harmony in the household. On occasion I am hired for cat consults.
I was contacted about doing a little PR for the book and to note that Dr. Becker will be in Seattle for a book signing next month. Dr Becker states, ” this book represents a lifetime of studying and treating cat diseases and practicing preventative health. “
I am happy to review his new book. I have quite a few books on cats in my library but nothing like Dr. Becker’s current book which I enjoyed reading.
Dr. Becker will be signing this new book, Your Cat, The Owner’s Manual on June 22nd at:
1:30p.m. and 3p.m.
1241 North 205th, Seattle WA 98133.
Dr. Becker has been a contributor to Good Morning America and is the resident Vet on the Dr. Oz Show.
Dr. Becker includes what he calls insider secrets for raising a happy and well-behaved cat. The author seemed to leave no stone unturned offering information on just about anything someone would need to know about cat parenting. He includes information on parasite control, suggestions to help decrease shedding and hairballs and how to address common behavioral problems. He also includes advice on parenting multiple cats just to mention a few topics. What I also liked was that throughout the book he recommends to the reader to contact their own Vet for guidance when necessary.
Marty Becker, DVM’s new book is an easy read. I would highly recommend this book before you get a cat to help you feel like a seasoned cat parent. If you currently are the proud parent of a fabulous feline I also would recommend this book be added to your library.
