We know cats are beautiful, secretive, and independent ... but even the most loyal cat owners are often baffled by their own pet's behavior. With veterinarian expert Dr. Gary Weitzman as guide, this fun book helps kids understand what cats are trying to communicate by their body language and behavior. So if you've ever wondered what Fluffy means when she's purring or moving her tail emphatically from left to right—this book is for you! It's full of insights, expert advice, and real-life cat scenarios, and showcases more than 30 poses, so you'll soon learn what each meow and flick of the tail means!

        Oh my gosh, this has answered my prayers. I have six cats, and I had always wanted to understand them. This book really helps, plus the pictures are amazing. I mean, wow, it is amazing! I highly recommend this for any cat lover, future owner, or avid book reader. I'm impressed.

                  I thought it was a great book. It didn't just give you ways to understand a cat, it gives you tips and interesting facts about cats. My favorite part is where a kitty went into a washing machine. However, it didn't tell you how to really speak cat, it told you how to understand their feelings. I recommend book! :)I forgot to mention that I won this book from DOGObooks!

                    You are so lucky! The title isn't literal, it is just catchy. It it actually told you how, people would of heard about it. But cool!

                      You're really lucky, but you shouldn't brag like that, because it makes other people feel really unlucky. But still, congratulations!
