Published by iUniverseBooks
The theme of responsibility towards our companion animals emanates from this informative book. Lack of accountability by cat guardians and misdirected animal control methods has allowed a serious problem in our society to brew. My concern for this problem caused me to start a no-kill shelter. I have personally rescued nearly 600 cats and counseled thousands of people regarding cat care topics. As a cat-connection specialist, I offered solutions to what guardians thought were un-resolvable problems. Cat guardians will find remedies for many cat issues. Find your missing cat, bathe your cat properly, select the proper post for a cat, train your cat to use a scratching post, are just a few topics discussed. Anyone with the desire to start a shelter has all the necessary information right here. Do not be without this resource on your bookshelf! Infuse your mind with years of knowledge with moments of reading.
