Cats are often thought to be solitary and hard to read, but if you know what to look for, they possess a “secret language” that relies on expressions, body postures, behaviors, and noises. This language contains many subtle yet important nuances and is very different from human verbal communication, but it is nevertheless a language that can be learned.

    I'm fluent in cat now. This skill is going straight to my resume.

    I agree with the other reviewers - brilliant book! If you want to understand the why of cats this is your secret weapon. I loved the tone too. Not precious, but obviously a cat lover wrote it, one who lives with and understands cats.

    This book contained a lot of useful information about cats from their physical communication to their ages and stages. It's broken down well, using headings and subheadings and the author doesn't jump around much. The only issue is that Dunphy doesn't use many credible resources and instead uses many unpublished opinions and articles from magazines and newspapers suck as telegraph.co.uk and nydailynews.com The book isn't very exciting and is more like a school textbook rather than a fun informational book for younger readers. One quote, for example, states that "Cats have 13 thoracic vertebrae and seven lumbar vertebrae, which facilitate enhanced spinal flexibility. In comparison, humans have 12 and 5 respectively." this book was intended for younger readers who wouldn't be able to understand and/or pronounce these words.

    I'm not sure which one I like better - The Secret Language of Dogs or this one, both books are by the same author. Read this if you want to understand your cat, and have a better relationship. Of the four or so books I have read on cat behaviour in the past this is the one that I found most useful. Lots of information on what it means when your cat act or sounds a certain way, and why cats act as they do (for example, inherited behaviours). So glad to have read this, as it helped me figure out why my cat was avoiding his litter and what to do to solve this, as well as shined light onto why my cat is up so early and sleeps all day and how to prevent him from scratching my furniture anymore than he already has (lucky he's so cute, right!).

    This book has taught me so much about my cat and helped me become a more wiser cat owner. I didn't have to fork out a whole wad of cash for a vet check up because this book taught me how to check on my kitties health myself. I have also learnt to become more sensitive to Ebony although I think that she hasn't inherited old lady health problems yet. I think she has been aging gracefully and I hope the same for Mushu (my kitty) when the time comes. I am glad to have this book and the RSPCA pet first aid guide but I would still love to learn more. Excellent book! I would recommend it to any cat owner.

    I don't give any books (or restaurants or songs) a perfect rating, but I received quite a few books for christmas and this is the one I first finished reading in its entirety. I've always been more of a dog person but am introducing a cat to my home in a matter of weeks. Very excited, and I feel very prepared now that I have read this. I usually only read fiction when reading for enjoyment but I liked the writing style very much and found this book very helpful and informative. It's been sitting on the side table in the living room since I got it, and I'm regularly picking it up to flip through and read sections over again. A great gift!

    This books was really informative and I learnt a lot about cats and cat care. This book would be a really good choice for somebody looking to adopt a cat, especially if it's their first.The photos were great and the layout clear and easy to follow. I like how the author divided the book into the different stages of life and the different things that can affect a cat.

    While cat fans may have encountered a lot of the content of this book before, it has enough interesting bits to keep a reader engaged. I would recommend this book to cat owners, and would be cat owners, who want to understand their fuzzy friends a bit better.

    I learned a bunch of interesting information about cats to help me with my felines at home. Some of the information was repeated but still useful.

    Has some great insight towards cat's behaviour, but nothing different from Google search.

    Lots of great information. Much of it was repeated 8 - 10 times throughout the book. It could've been a little more condensed.

    Meh...thats kind of how I felt about most of this book. Sure there are a few tidbits of info that is interesting but overall the book is VERY repetative. The same explanations about the same activities of cats are said over and over again. I am the ultimate cat lady so I thought this book would be fascinating. Wrong it was more of a snoozefest.
