    Am I already subscribed to Cat Fancy, the magazine affiliated with this book? Nyet, I get a different feline circular, Modern Cat. It honestly comes to my house every other month! Would it be cost effective to subscribe to Cat Fancy or rather I think they call it Catster, as well? Hmm, I don't know, I think it would only be worthwhile if it were to come the other month that Modern Cat didn't arrive... otherwise it might be an overload. I MEAN I COULD SPACE THEM OUT MYSELF BUT DO I EVER THINK BEF Am I already subscribed to Cat Fancy, the magazine affiliated with this book? Nyet, I get a different feline circular, Modern Cat.

I MEAN I COULD SPACE THEM OUT MYSELF BUT DO I EVER THINK BEFORE I READ? ...well, only a little... so I am on the edge with subscribing to Catster too. It would be good, I like to support good kitty information... ANYWAY this is the story of a lady who goes around to people's apartments to catsit. It has interspersed in between every story which is only a page long tops protips on keeping Fifi and Snowball healthy and alert like putting ice cubes in the water dish so they'll continue to drink it and what to do when giving your cats medication. [I think primarily in order is listen to your vet and follow those directions exactly, that's what they're there for, but this lady is here to discuss how to open a cat's mouth to give him or her (or it) a pill.] So I liked to read her stories. You may, as well!

In Chapter Two is enlightening advice on feeding your kitty. There's also good tips on getting your cat to know and have a good attitude toward her cat carrier so she is not afraid whenever it comes out! It has practical litter box hints, like not placing food and litter close together (no one wants to eat where they go to the bathroom - including your kitty). Chapter Five has important health care advice. For example, the authors tell you when you need to take your cat to the vet - immediately! Further, the book shares what to do when kitty misbehaves and reveals inexpensive cat toys and the dangers of some toys. This book is also peppered with funny, interesting and sometimes touching feline stories from Adlon's life as a professional cat sitter. It's definitely For Cat Lovers...

    I thought there would be more in-depth personal "this happened to me" cat stories in Cat Calls. I felt the little paragraphs were too short, cute and sweet but short. As a cat owner for over a decade, I've learned a lot on my own (thus the low rating). Adlon provides some interesting tips, for example, to keep catnip fresher, it should be placed in the fridge.

    Some cute and very brief blurbs about cats she's watched over, and some good practical advice. Not for people who need detailed info on specific cat issues, but good for a basic understanding of how to be a cat owner.

    Cat Calls is a well-written book. However it is not what I expected. I was expecting the veteran cat sitters story to be front and center but the true focus of the book was basic cat care. It is mainly a how to care for you cat book with cat sitting experiences added for flavor.
