Pros: Excellent behavioral advice! Friendly and well-written.

Cons: Owners may wait too long to follow the advice offered.

Pam Johnson-Bennett is a true cat behaviorist!  She really tells you how to "think like a cat".  And her writing is casual and friendly, not bombastic or pedantic.  She's the type of person you'd love to have a chat with over the fence!  The only drawback to this book is that cat owners won't follow her advice until it's almost too late.  A terrific companion book is "Cat vs. Cat".  Although it's primarily focused on two-cat households, the advice can be useful for any multi-cat environment.

The writer is so friendly and comes over like a good friend.

Pros: Well-written and covers a lot of cat care related issues

Cons: Perfect for cat behavior, but health and nutrition probably should be covered by a separate book

Pam Johnson-Bennett offers what IMO is the best ever manual for cat behavior. She helps you get the cat's perspective on things, and works with that to create the best possible behavior-modification techniques. The book covers a lot of ground, including general cat care, feeding and health issues, but its strength is definitely in the field of cat behavior.

Think Like a Cat: How to Raise a Well-Adjusted Cat--Not a Sour Puss
Description:

A popular cat expert and award-winning author of four books on feline behavior reveals the key to a satisfying and rewarding relationship with your cat. Think it's impossible to train a cat? Think again! Yes, you can learn to understand your cat. No, cats are not always aloof. No, they don't ruin furniture out of spite. Most often feline "misbehavior" is the result of owners not understanding their cat's needs. In this comprehensive book that takes readers through every step of cat ownership, Pam Johnson-Bennett helps you understand the instincts that determine feline behavior, positive and negative. An authoritative resource for cat owners of all stripes, Think Like a Cat covers everything from where to get a kitten to choosing a vet; from basic health care to treating more serious medical problems; from selecting an irresistible scratching post to avoiding litter box problems. A seasoned therapist and former veterinary technician, Johnson-Bennett offers welcome advice in a straightforward manner that will help cats--and their owners--share a happy, healthy life together. Johnson-Bennett's first book, Cat Love, was chosen by Cat Fancy magazine as one of the best books ever published on cats.
