Cat Care:The Essential Guide (Rob Duffy Series Editor)

I was recently sent a copy of Cat Care:The Essential Guide by (Rob Duffy Series Editor). Throughout the years I have featured, read and own a number of Cat Care books and each one has value in their own right. Cat Care:The Essential Guide is another to add to your toolbox of cat care reference books.

From Perfect Pets Books:

"Cat Care The Essential Guide is a useful resource packed with all the information one needs to provide the best care possible for your cat from infancy to adulthood. Not only does the book cover the vast amount of general things to consider about owning and caring for a cat more specific issues are covered. These include: The early years and the cat ‘teenager’. What a cat should eat and drink and foods that are dangerous. Basic first aid is also covered in easy to read language that guides the owner on the best course of action to take before the cat gets to the vet in case of an accident."

Some Chapters From the Book Include:

Things to Know About Owning A Cat
Microchip, Vaccinations,  Weight, Exercise, Grooming

The Kitten
Kitten-proofing your home. 
Toys and Chews: Perfect Pets Books is based out of the UK and in this section they reference a couple of things that I am not familiar with. Are any of you familiar with fresh breath mint sticks, plaque removing pretzels, chewy wheels and stick shaped grinding toys for cats? Feel free to shed some light on this!

Dangerous Foods for your Cat
This can't be reiterated enough!

First Aid for your Cat

  • What should be in your Cat First Aid Kit? The book has a comprehensive list!
  • What to do in an Emergency
  • Symptoms Which May Need Quick Action

Only 72 pages long, it makes it easily transportable. It is  a quick (but thorough) and  IMPORTANT cat care reference book to add to your collection. The book covers many more topics and is written in "everyday" language that makes it easy for people like me with no medical background, easy to use and understand.

  1. Might be a great addition to the ones I already have...that are old and likely outdated.

  2. This sounds like a really good book for all cat companions!

  3. There are things our babies need and we need to have that information.

  4. That one sounds good and I always thought something like that should be given to new cat parents.

  5. Although some of us have a bazillion books about cat care, this one is probably all one needs!
