Award-winning author Kim Campbell Thornton offers "Real Answers to the Curious Things Cats Do" in this fun-fact book that all cat lovers will adore. Why Do Cats Do That? discusses twenty peculiar feline habits that have puzzled cat owners since the first semi-domesticated cat plopped a dead baby dodo on a caveman's doorstep! Why do cats bring us mangled mice as gifts? How and why does a cat purr? Why do cats land on their feet? (Do they always land on their feet?) These questions and others are explored and sometimes resolved in an entertaining and instructive format. More than good fun, owners will discover the reasons behind common behavioral problems, including litter box accidents, furniture scratching, spraying, and more. Feline facts and training ideas plus lots of funny cat photos complete this Simple Solutions book.
