"A must-read for any cat lover, Cat Sense is a revolutionary new account from one of the leading scientific experts on these little-understood animals. As he did in his acclaimed, best-selling Dog Sense, Bradshaw combines the most up-to-date research with fascinating case studies to paint an unprecedentedly detailed portrait of the domestic cat"--"Cats have been popular household pets for thousands of years, and their numbers only continue to rise. Today there are three cats for every dog on the planet, and yet cats remain more mysterious, even to their most adoring owners. Unlike dogs, cats evolved as solitary hunters, and, while many have learned to live alongside humans and even feel affection for us, they still don't quite "get us" the way dogs do, and perhaps they never will. But cats have rich emotional lives that we need to respect and understand if they are to thrive in our company. In Cat Sense, renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw takes us further into the mind of the domestic cat than ever before, using cutting-edge scientific research to dispel the myths and explain the true nature of our feline friends. Tracing the cat's evolution from lone predator to domesticated companion, Bradshaw shows that although cats and humans have been living together for at least eight thousand years, cats remain independent, predatory, and wary of contact with their own kind, qualities that often clash with our modern lifestyles. Cats still have three out of four paws firmly planted in the wild, and within only a few generations can easily revert back to the independent way of life that was the exclusive preserve of their predecessors some 10,000 years ago. Cats are astonishingly flexible, and given the right environment they can adapt to a life of domesticity with their owners-but to continue do so, they will increasingly need our help. If we're to live in harmony with our cats, Bradshaw explains, we first need to understand their inherited quirks: understanding their body language, keeping their environments - however small - sufficiently interesting, and becoming more proactive in managing both their natural hunting instincts and their relationships with other cats. A must-read for any cat lover, Cat Sense offers humane, penetrating insights about the domestic cat that challenge our most basic assumptions and promise to dramatically improve our pets' lives - and ours"--… (lisätietoja)

Lot os areas to just leaf through. Facit: we simply don’t know cats. ( )

As a full fledged on her way to be certifiable crazy cat person, I was really excited to learn more about cats. Reading this book definitely opened my eyes to things I didn't know about before and changed the way I look/think about my cat's behaviors. I think my favorite part was learning more about black cats and how they came to be as they have a special place in my heart. All in all, I really learned a lot from this book and have been spouting facts at anyone who will listen (and even some people who don't want to). ( )

Good book about what's known about the psychology, genetics, and socialization of the domestic cat.

What's most remarkable to me is just how little basic science has been done -- many basic things like knowing the optimal age to home kittens with their new families, the extent of genetic influence over personality traits, etc. have never been studied.

A particularly scary thing is that widespread neutering of pet cats has led to the least sociable and human adapted cats being responsible for most new kittens (unaltered female cats kept in homes, but feral tomcats rather than outdoor pet tomcats); this has apparently led to observable behavioral differences in kittens in areas where the majority of pet cats are neutered.

Pedigree cats don't seem to have been bred with personality taken into account, and the market for random-bred or non-pedigreed cats based on personality may not exist, but it seems like there should be a market for a super-premium known-parentage cat, raised in a home environment until age 8 weeks or so, combined with feline enrichment and other pet ecosystem products -- basically the "Apple" of cats.

A must-read for every cat owner. ( )

A really interesting read, especially if you own a Cat. There is a lot in here that will make you think, especially about the Cat's role as a predator. There is also a chilling vision for the future of the Domestic Cat. ( )
