From the publisher of B. Kliban's Cat, All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat, and Bad Cat, comes a new book that answers the question all cat lovers ask: How do I make my cat like me?97 Ways to Make a Cat Like You is the perfect interactive guide to these mysterious, fickle, seemingly aloof--yet really, just particular--pets.
Paired with a full-color photograph of friendly, extroverted, happy cats (in case you've forgotten what a cat looks like when he "likes" you), the 97 inspired, occasionally silly but always behaviorally-based tips and tricks prove that when a cat is treated right, he or she will respond in kind.
Within reason. There's the "Eye on the Ball"--record a tennis match or a Ping-Pong game on TV to play back for your cat when he needs a bit of exercise. "Cat Burrito"--wrap your cat in a towel, burrito-style, which is particularly good for anxious pets or trips to the vet.
The "Boing, Boing!"--wind pipe cleaners around a pencil in a spiral shape to create springs.
Carefully slide off the pencil so the spirals go "boing" when pressed.
The classic "Tickle, Tickle"--tickle Kitty under her chin and softly say "gitchy, gitchy, gitchy" in your highest-pitched voice. And for the cat owner willing to go the distance, the "There's No Business Like Show Business"--practice your best Ethel Merman by belting out favorite show tunes for your cat.
Kitty won't care if you're off-key and she'll enjoy the stimulation.
