Booklist Review
This title, appropriately rife with puns, offers guided activities that will help young ailurophiles understand many of the mysteries behind cat behavior. Chapters divide exercises into four categories based on feline physiology, senses, predatory instinct, and psychology. Most activities incorporate simple arts and crafts into a behavioral study, which is broken down into numbered instructions, with each step accompanied by a photograph. Difficulty ranges from Easy to Grab a Parent, and everything can be done from the comfort of one's home. Ultimately, though, this works best as an informational text. The activities which depend on a cat's willingness to participate mostly serve to confirm what the text shares up front. Still, many readers who wish to learn their own cats' quirks will enjoy attempting the various observational experiments, and anyone who chooses simply to read will come out with a much deeper understanding that will enrich everyday interactions with their feline friends. Challenging vocabulary is in bold, and back matter includes a glossary of defined terms as well as resources for further learning.--Ronny Khuri Copyright 2019 Booklist
