In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Nicholas Dodman does for feline psychology what he did for canines in his widely acclaimed The Dog Who Loved Too Much. Here he reveals the fascinating, and often frustrating, mind of one of our most popular--and certainly most independent--animal companions, and shows how we can coexist peacefully with even the stubbornest of cats.

  • Great book, easy to understand!! This book is worth several times more than this price. The author is with the prestigious Tuft's Vet College. His book about dogs, "The Dog Who Loved Too Much" is also great.
