I didn't know I was until this little guy made his way into my heart two years ago.
It's been really fun getting to know cats through him. When we first brought him home,
I bought a little book to help me understand cat mentality, health, needs, wants, and communication. But I haven't done any real reading to keep in tune with him since.
room -- I also bought some teach-me-about-cats reading material. Oliver is a communicator.
He is! But he still can't talk to me and tell me everything I need to know. So, it's nice to
read up and inform myself a bit. I found this magazine to be super interesting.
For example, I learned:
* Citrus oil, a common ingredient in cleaning products, is toxic to a cat's system.
* How to tell when they're sick (because it's harder with cats then dogs) .
* This guy -- who is a cat behaviorist, trainer and lover -- is on Animal Planet's Cat 101.
I feel a little more connected to my parenting role with Oliver when I know exactly what
I need to be doing for him and why. He's such a special little guy, and I want him to have
the healthiest, happiest life he can!
