Cat people, rejoice! Finally, a fun-to-read yet science-based book about cat behavior that explains how to keep your cat healthy and happy.

We all love our cats, and we all want them to be happy. But making our cats happy isn’t about buying them lots of things. It’s about finding out what matters to them—and this book shows you how to do that, with the science to back it up. 

In Purr, animal behavior expert Zazie Todd addresses every stage of your cat’s life and offers surprising and effective advice for even the most experienced cat owner, including how to:

  • Enrich your cat’s life through play and exercise
  • Reduce anxiety and fear around your absence, or trips to the vet
  • Train your kitten or cat without causing harm (ie. don’t use a spray bottle)
  • Provide for special needs like asthma
  • Make senior cats comfortable 
  • And so much more

In Purr, Zazie Todd demystifies the feline-human relationship so you can form your special bond based on your cat’s unique needs—all while learning lots and having fun together.
