Pros: easy to read, good advice, Q&A format
Cons: needs to be revised
I got The Kittens Owners Manual back in 2009 when I acquired my cat, Angie, when she was 4 weeks old. Her and her littermates were dropped off at the local grocery store by a lady who said that they wouldn't eat anything and she didn't want them anymore. Turns out, Angie was taken from her mommy too early and wasn't even weaned yet. This was the only book I could find that was specifically for kitten care at the time.
This book was very informative, especially the section on newborn kittens and hand-raising them. The entire book is in Q&A format, which makes it easy to read and follow. Later on, the book came in handy for training Angie and taking care of her. There was even suggestions for toys, litter, grooming supplies, and other supplies to make a kitten feel at home. In addition to this, there was also a health section, which was very helpful, especially the age ranges on when to get a kitten vaccinated and fixed.
I think this book should be given to everyone who is adopting a kitten from an animal shelter or breeder. It will be referred to quite a lot. I just wish that the author would make a revised edition with updated information a companies that make products for kittens. Most of the products information is really out of date.
