Zitat
"The long awaited third edition of this authoritative book on cat behaviour provides the reader with an up-to-date scientific knowledge on behaviour and welfare of domestic cats. The coverage is considerably broader than in previous editions, including more chapters relevant to cat welfare, cat breeding, behavioural problems, and how to handle overpopulation of stray cats. Some intriguing new research results, e.g. on human and cat personalities, are presented in detail; part of this is previously unpublished. The editors have successfully casted an impressive list of experts on the various topics. This book is very valuable and highly recommended to students and professionals of ethology, veterinary medicine, biology and others interested in this exciting animal species, which is now the most widely kept companion animal in most countries." Bjarne O. Braastad, Norwegian University of Life Sciences "In The Domestic Cat, Turner and Bateson provide the ultimate compendium of all things cat. This book will be of benefit to scientists, practitioners, and perhaps most importantly to cat owners by unraveling the enigma that is the cat, dispelling myths, and answering questions which may be vital to optimizing cats' and their humans' lives together." Rebecca A. Johnson, International Association of Human Animal Interaction Organizations (IAHAIO) "This updated and expanded new edition of The Domestic Cat edited by Dennis Turner and Pat Bateson gives a comprehensive and authoritative account of the behaviour of one of our most popular companion animals. It makes fascinating reading both for the behavioural biologist and for the cat lover." Felicity A. Huntingford, University of Glasgow
