Kittens are not cats. They have their own very specific needs and challenges. They may scratch furniture, chew on cords, and just generally cause trouble - all while looking adorably innocent. Their first year will be one in which they learn how to use a litter box; that nipping at hands and feet is not tolerated; and how to go to sleep when you do, so their play doesn't keep you up all night. It will be your job to teach them appropriate behavior. The Secret Language of Kittens is your partner during this first year, your one-stop guide when looking for answers. It takes the mystery out of kitten communication, giving you the insight needed to raise a kitten into a happy, well-behaved cat. Learn to translate the vocal communication, behavior, and body language of your kitten. Understand how your kitten sees the world. Know how your attempts at communication and interaction are interpreted, and get guidance on kitten care. As this book shows, there are no bad kittens, only owners who don't yet understand their kitten's 'secret language.'
