Dr. Marty Becker has become known as "America's Veterinarian" because of his educational and entertaining shows and columns. For more than ten years, Dr. Becker has been the popular veterinary contributor to ABC-TV's Good Morning America and is now a member of Core Team Oz on Dr. Mehmet Oz's show.

Dr. Becker will help owners solve problems and enhance their bond with their cats through a tip-filled book on everything from finding the right cat to preventing health problems and bad behavior. He will start owners off on the right foot, whether they buy a kitten or adopt an older cat, showing them how to solve the most annoying behavior and cat-care problems--from scratching furniture to not using the litter-box. (Surprising fact: did you know that black cats shed more than light-colored cats?) And he advises owners how to make their own cat toys, and how to save money on medication, both traditional and alternative.

Reviews from 1.....5.0 out of 5 stars Actionable Advice, Enjoyable to Read Many books on cat care are boring. This one is not. With personality and flair, Dr. Becker offers sound advice for all things kitty. Yes, he includes the basics you may already know. But throughout the book he gives fantastic little tips, tricks and insights you may not have considered before. I picked up all kinds of useful nuggets of info and you will too! ............................... 2.... 5.0 out of 5 stars If you're only going to get one cat care guide, this is the one to get, May 15, 2012 .Because of the enthusiasm Dr. Becker brings to his work as a veterinarian, his dedication to the human animal bond, and his passion for sharing his knowledge about pets with others so their lives, and the lives of their pets, can be richer for it................... This passion comes through in every page of the book. From how to select a cat or kitten (or what to do when one selects you) to how to keep your cat happy and healthy throughout her life by providing proper nutrition, health care, environmental stimulation, and even training, the book covers all aspects of cat care..................... Dr. Becker addresses a few topics I have not seen in other cat care books. "Financial Planning for Pet Care" covers pet insurance, setting up a dedicated savings account for pet care, explains why veterinary care costs what it does, and offers money saving tips that won't compromise your cat's health. "In Sickness and in Health" includes everything from finding the right veterinarian for your cat and getting the best medical care to what to do in an emergency............ The book is written in a highly engaging and entertaining style, sprinkled with a dose of humor, which makes for a thoroughly enjoyable reading experience.......... I highly recommend this book for new and veteran cat guardians. If you're only going to get one cat care guide, this is the one to get.
