Booklist Reviews 2015 March #1

Understanding catspeak appears to be a minefield, particularly for people who think they know what they're doing. In dogs, a wagging tail is a friendly sign, but in cats, it may mean anger, attention, or indecision. The main text carries most of the information within topical sections dealing with body language, facial expressions, tail tells, vocalizations, acting out, and emotions. Meanwhile, Weitzman—aka Dr. Gary, a vet—speaks to readers directly, offering facts, observations, and advice. Along with the text, the double-page spreads carry clear color photos, sidebars featuring Dr. Gary, and links to online cat videos. The occasional "Training Tips" column gives step-by-step directions for training a cat to, say, give a high five or walk into his carrier willingly. With at least one appealing cat photo on every spread, this colorful book is a browser's delight for cat lovers, who will probably learn something new every time they pick it up. A useful companion volume to Newman and Weitzman's How to Speak Dog (2013). Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

This chatty introduction to feline communication begins by outlining humans' historical relationships with cats; then covers vocalizations and body language, as well as how to read them to interpret a cat's needs and emotional state. High-quality stock photos, quizzes, and sidebars with tips from the veterinarian coauthor round out the browsable, magazine-like volume. Reading list, timeline, websites. Ind.
