Why do cats get stuck up trees? What makes them purr? Why do they kill? Do they really like us? What are they thinking?

John Bradshaw, one of the world's leading experts on animal behaviour, overturns many of the myths surrounding cats to reveal the true nature of our most enigmatic companions- what makes them tick, how they relate to humans (and each other), and what they really need to make them happy.

'You could buy a dozen books by the many cat whisperers, cat gurus and cat therapists, but their accumulated wisdom would probably not help you understand your cats as well as Cat Sense.' Tom Cox, Observer 'Friendly and engaging, packed with excellent cat facts.' Steven Poole, Guardian 'What makes Bradshaw's book so valuable is his positive thinking. How can we make the cat less anxious? How can we help?' Lynne Truss, The Times 'Bradshaw wants us to be better owners, and draws on the latest research - much of it is his own - to show us how.' James McConnachie, Sunday Times 'A must-read for cat owners.' The Lady

John Bradshaw is a biologist who founded and directs the world-renowned Anthrozoology Institute, based at the University of Bristol. He has been studying the behaviour of domestic cats and their owners for over 25 years, and is the author of many scientific articles, research papers and reviews.


Witty, surprising writing ... There is his delight in detail, a talent for dismantling myths, but most importantly an ability to build a coherent and entertaining theory from an apparent contradiction that all cat-lovers will recognise: we seek to understand cats even though it is our lack of understanding that makes us love them * Herald * A fascinating book every cat owner should read * Irish Times * For any who may wonder what their feline companions are really thinking, Cat Sense, by John Bradshaw, provides the best answers that science can give * New York Times * Bradshaw wants us to be better owners, and draws on the latest research - much of it is his own - into feline behaviour to show us how ... He offers admirably pragmatic solutions ... An entertaining book, written in a relaxed style -- James McConnachie * Sunday Times * Exceptionally thorough ... Bradshaw's concern and love for cats shines through ... You could buy a dozen books by the many cat whisperers, cat gurus and cat therapists that exist in our feline-obsessed modern world, but their accumulated wisdom would probably not help you understand your cats as well as Cat Sense -- Tom Cox * Observer * A mind-altering book ... What makes Bradshaw's book so valuable is his positive thinking. How can we make the cat less anxious? How can we help? -- Lynne Truss * The Times * Thoughtful, useful and utterly absorbing . . . What this book does is give us a better understanding of the way cats perceive the world; and so how we might better accommodate ourselves to them -- Nick Lezard, Paperback of the Week * Guardian *
