We know cats are beautiful, secretive, and independent ... but even the most loyal cat owners are often baffled by their own pet's behaviour. 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 behaviour. 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!
