    Vicky Halls is a veterinary nurse who currently works in Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom as a cat behaviour consellor that U.K bit is important because there are some fundamental differences in U.K thinking on what is best for our little feline friends and U.S thinking Being a cat behavior consellor apparently means that she earns her living by visiting people in their homes, drinking tea from their cat mugs and listening to their stories about their cats She never gets bored her words I m not sure how helpful any of this is to the North American cat owner who picks up Cat Confidential the book your cat would want you to read with a hope to solve a particular cat problem, it is, however, a rather entertaining and thoughtful book written with some insight First off, in case you didn t know, two major difference between British and American views on house cats In the U.K declawing is illegal so you will not find any discussion of it here pros OR cons not that that s a bad thing i believe it s a rather inhumane thing to do myself, but it does bear mentioning importantly, in the U.K it is considered depriving a cat of one of its most basic needs to not allow it to freely roam outside whereas the A.S.P.C.A and the Humane Society of the United States as well as most U.S vets agree that not only are cats much safer as purely indoor creatures but that they can live a very happy satisfied life if kept inside given the proper amusement and stimulation In fact it is mentioned as one of the symptoms of an overly attached perhaps even bordering on pathological owner in this book if the cat is kept exclusively indoors or allowed only restricted access to the outdoors under supervision for reasons of safety The owners worry that the cat would be exposed to unacceptable dangers if it were to go outside In the U.S this would be considered indicative of a responsible cat owner.Another conceit of this particular author seems to be that often the answer is to remove the cat from the home, which, i am sure, must sometimes be necessary but she seems much quicker to do it than i would be and have worked out situations in my own home that have seemed daunting than those she seemed to resort to very extreme measures with The book is divided into chapters which would seem to make seeking help for particular problems easier The New KittenThe Scaredy CatThe Aggressive CatThe Indoor Cat which of course would always seem to result in a stir crazy cat who needs some outdoor time The Multi Cat Household which rarely seems to work well except in the author s case The Weird CatThe Human Cat BondThe Elderly and Disabled CatCoping with BereavementUnfortunately many of these problems often seem to have similar solutions and they are so anecdotal as to be of little use I found the last two chapters dealing with elderly cats which is really just a report on a survey the author did of cat owners and coping with bereavement to be the most helpful Halls said she wrote this book mainly to talk about the nine cats she has shared her life with and each of these is used to introduce a chapter , it is on this level and in Halls tone that i find the book succeeds most She also is incredibly witty and i love her description of how cats feel about cat doors but without them, and the constant need for the cat to go outside, doesn t that leave you at your cat s beck and call Worth reading but for behavior advise a better bet is probably Nicholas Dodman.

    Interesting read if you have cats Its of a pick up and read a chapter than a sit down read because it is quite detailed about various problems The book addresses various issues through stories of her clients who called her in due to difficulties with their cats The main problem I had with this is that these people all seemed obsessed with their cats, and the advice to build stuff for their cats, or put a litter tray in every room and hide their food in every room wouldn t it smell Otherwise interesting stories and facts, if you like cats worth a look.My cats apparently have a sense of irony, as just as I finished it and it was left beside my bed one of them threw up all over it so I guess they didn t like it that much

    This was a cute and delightfully British book that had some good information in it Since it contains some hard to find information e.g about cat masturbation and the standard info doesn t contradict anything else I ve learned in school, I think this will be my go to cat manual from now on.

    I bought this book back in 2009 2010, along with 3 other books by Vicky Halls, when I got my first cat There was a bookmark stuffed in its pages, so I decided to pick it back up and read it cover to cover I firmly believe that one should educate themselves as much as possible when committing to care for a dependent species particularly one that won t ever speak the same verbal language as them Fortunately, there is body language and social cues Halls equips her readers with her experiences on what a cat is saying with their body and behaviour in an attempt to break down the language barrier between us and our feline friends Sometimes our cat is trying to tell us they are sick by not using their litter Sometimes, they are telling us they don t like it when our schedule dramatically changes when they start to excessively groom themselves Halls also arms her readers with tips, based of her past experiences, on how to best work with your cat depending on the behaviour they are exhibiting when its been determined to be a behavioural issue What I found most interesting, though, was the common factors she noted for those humans who grow too attached to their cats women, divorced widowed, history with depression mental illness are the same common factors of those who are most prone to internet addiction.

    As an ardent cat lover and proud mum of two cats with quite a heavy history I try to learn as much as I can to make their lives as comfortable as possible Cat confidential has provided some big eye openers not simply for my situation now but, importantly, also towards my future that s going to be filled with even cats The most shocking aspect about cat life that I have learned through this read is probably the fact that you may not notice your felines distress until the bucket has already overflown and the bullying Cats are not as simple as you may think, but once you know what to look for which I now do thanks to Vicky Halls , they actually are I d recommend this read to anyone thinking of expanding their family with a cat, as this author is thoroughly experienced in solving family issues that seem to be caused by their felines Prevention is everything

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would definitely recommend it Book consist of interesting stories which lead us through various cat behaviors and issues connected with them Advice is also there, it s just that it becomes secondary main goal of the stories is to understand and explain behaviour, causes reason Sometimes solutions aren t of happy end type, but were logical thing to do I especially liked part about over attachment, about how to know when to let go and how to handle grief of both owners and companions There s also extensive information about elder cats from author s own research Also found very interesting to find out that genes which cause color are connected with some behavioral as well, so effectively you really can deduct some expected behavior traits just from the color.

    With the recent addition of a cat to the household, I have been devouring a lot of cat related content Cat Confidential is written by a cat counsellor and talks about different aspects of cat behaviour, especially the troubling kind, through the various cases that she has had The stories were very cut, even if a few were a touch disturbing at times, and the anecdotes really helped bring to life the advice that she was giving It was a really fun read, and I feel like I learnt a lot about cats through reading it, even if it did highlight how strange they can be

  8. Ally Ally says:

    This was a very informative book that could be used as a help guide or read purely for pleasure, assuming the reader is a cat lover There was a great deal of practical advice and guidance related to specific problem areas and stages to in a cats life I particularly enjoyed all the case studies and anecdotes about the writers own cats.
