Five Best Cat Behaviour Books
Five Books on Cats every Human should have
The first thing you have to understand is that cats are not people!
There's an instinctual reason behind the actions of a cat. Understanding what these instincts are (and why I have them in the first place) will make you become a better cat owner. At the very least, cat behaviour should make a lot more sense.
Here's my list of recommended books for you to read on feline psychology and overall cat care.

This human knows her stuff!
It wasn't all Wine and Roses with Joe
I once had a friend named Joe.
He turned up one rainy night, small and skinny, with oil in his fur and a piteous wail. The woman made a big fuss getting the oil out and after some weeks we finally woke up that no one was going to come and claim the creature. His temporary stay turned into 13 years.
And let me tell you it wasn't all wine and roses! Or cream and catnip for that matter, but after Joe learned what rung he occupied on the ladder, we became the best of friends.
He's crossed the rainbow bridge now, and I've adjusted to not having the bumbling fool around although at first I was, perhaps, a little crazed and demanded a lot of affection. Yes, cats grieve too.
If you have more than one cat in your house, I recommend Cat Vs. Cat: Keeping Peace When You Have More Than One Cat
Think Like a Cat: How to Raise a Well-Adjusted Cat
When you want to get inside your cat's brain, here's some excellent advice to help cats, and their people, share a happy, healthy life together.
Yes, you can learn to think like a cat!
Specially recommended by the woman who feeds me, she learned a lot from this book.
When you start to share your life with a cat you have to think like a cat
Anyone who's been around a cat for any length of time well knows that we have enormous patience with the limitations of people. It constantly amazes me just how very tolerant we are of your foibles. But don't you want to raise the bar?
Surely you would rather start off on the right foot, or paw, when you have a cat moving into your house.
We love security. We love a familiar setting. We love a routine. And we quickly become bored if you don't play with us regularly.
If you're about to share your house with a cat. I recommend Think Like a Cat: How to Raise a Well-Adjusted Cat, also by Pam Johnson-Bennett.
What Humans don't know about Cats
Why Do Cats Always Land on Their Feet?
For instance, why don't you understand furballs? How do you measure my age next to yours? How do I tell the time? Bet you don't know why my whiskers twitch either
And what is that white cat doing?
Fortunately, Why Do Cats Always Land on Their Feet? tells you lots of things that you don't know. Things you didn't know that you ever wanted to know.
Humans Marty Becker and Gina Spadafori present an excellent guide to the mind, body, and psyche of the magical creatures that we cats truly are.
All that you wanted to know, but didn't know who to ask!
Why are my eyes vertical slits?
