What does your cat really want when it rubs up against your leg? Is it showing affection or aggression when it sucks a hole in your favorite sweater? Why does it turn up its nose at the cat food you bought on sale, settling only for the most expensive meal?
Making use of the latest scientific evidence on animal consciousness, Dr. Milani shows how a thorough understanding of feline anatomy, physiology, and behavior can lead to a warm and lasting bond between cats and the people who love them. She also lets us know what our responses to feline behavior tell the cat about us and our emotions.
The Body Language and Emotion of Cats is a fascinating guide to understanding this enigmatic pet and provides a way to enrich and expand the bond between owner and cat.
