How Do Cats Do That? is an educational book written by Peter Scottsdale. With cats being such mysterious and endearing animals, finding a book such as this for younger readers is truly wonderful. Encompassing many curiosities, Peter Scottsdale has answered questions about how a cat communicates, eats, drinks, shows emotion, procreates, gives birth and more. I was both fascinated and intrigued by how many details were provided about this delightful animal. Not only does the book stick to the facts, but it educates without treating the reader like they are absolutely clueless in reading the book to begin with.
As a former Veterinary Nurse, I was extremely impressed with both the quantity and quality of information which Peter Scottsdale has imparted in such an easy-to-read format, as both young and old alike can gain a wealth of knowledge about our feline friends. Each chapter starts with a question and is finalized with a statement, as if answering the question on a personal level, as opposed to the clinical feel which most educational textbooks tend to follow. I found myself smiling, thinking about the mannerisms of the two felines who run my household, while also nodding at how correct each detail was which I had read.
How Do Cats Do That? is an essential addition to any pet owner’s library, and would also ideally be stocked in retail outlets of animal welfare organizations where adoption is the key. The more an owner knows about their new furry family member, the better off the whole family will be. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to cat lovers of all ages.
