(Reviewed by Jeyran Main)
How To Be Owned By A Cat is a non-fiction, short, self-help book. It is for people who are loving the idea of having a cat but are unsure and have questions about how to undergo this desire with the utmost care.
This book stands different among its peers because it provides a step by step take on how to make this transition smooth and practical instead of just dumping plenty of information about cats and how to care for them.
Besides the basics on how to prepare your home or how to protect your furniture, the author also informs the reader of the animal’s personality and traits. The key is communication, even when you are dealing with a pet and it is no surprise that this book also emphasizes that subject matter as well.
I found the literature standard to be in good shape. The chapters are short and easy to understand.
Anyone who has the intention of buying a cat or adopting one will find this book to be useful.
I especially liked the part where the author discusses bizarre behaviors in cats. It stipulated a more psychological aspect of the animal and provided a personal touch to considering this big responsibility.
I would recommend this book to people who are into cats, are proud owners of one or are considering to adopt or purchase this furry animal.
