Proper care takes time, money, and a lifetime commitment. Whether you are newly kitten smitten or a seasoned feline aficionado, Cats for the GENIUS shows you how to build the foundation of a long, healthy, happy relationship between you and your cat.

Cats for the GENIUS is written with clever wit and in an easy-to-read conversational style common to books in the For the GENIUS series. It is your comprehensive owner’s guide to everything feline.

Cats as a species are surrounded by myth, misinformation, and misunderstanding, causing so many to be relinquished to shelters. With humans, miscommunication is often behind misunderstandings in relationships. Communication is no less important in our relationships with our cats. Usually, the miscommunication involves a perfectly normal feline behavior that may be innate, instinctual, a sign of stress, or a medical condition that a person finds unacceptable in the home environment—weakening the human-animal bond or completely rupturing it. Ramona D. Marek shows us how to understand what our cats are trying to tell us.
