Hailed as "the founding mother of cat psychology," Carole Wilbourn has received international attention for her feline expertise. With her emphasis on treating the total cat, the "Wilbourn Ways" to a healthy cat follow the guiding principles of the ancient Greeks -- a sound mind in a sound body. Wilbourn explains how to talk to your cat -- and how to listen. She provides tools that can help you recognize, understand, and respond to your cat's body language, vocalization, and facial expressions -- the keys to your cat's behavior.

Wilbourn addresses specific situations that may develop with even the best-cared-for feline. You will learn how to detect the underlying causes to your cat's problem behavior -- whether yours is antisocial, self-destructive, or an overly aggressive "attack cat" -- and you'll receive invaluable guidance on everything from your cat's eating disorders and litter box aversion to its phobias and depression.

Whether you're introducing a new cat or person into your feline's environment or caring for an abused refugee, The Total Cat provides the insights necessary for understanding your cat at every stage of its life.
