“My Cat Hates My Vet” by Amy Shojai

This book is written in the usual style of Amy Shojai who, as you know, is one of my favorite animal behaviorist.   It covers what to do when your cat has trouble with all of the stages of going to the vet, or anywhere else.

“My Cat Hates My Vet”  starts out with the first stage…getting her used to the carrier.  Amy suggests a few different carries, depending on the size of your cat.  For example, the carrier should have plenty of room for her to move around comfortably.  Getting your cat used to her carrier as she rides in the car may not seem like a big deal; but for those who have heard the heart-wrenching mews of a scared kitten, or the ear-splitting yowls of a mad cat while driving, know that this is not the case.  IT IS A VERY BIG DEAL!!

Ms. Shojai also suggests helpful tips like taking your cat into the vet when there isn’t anything wrong.  You do this to let the cat know that the vet and staff are not the enemy, and it is sometimes a fun place in which she can romp and play.  This way, there is less anxiety when she needs to go for her checkups, etc.

As usual, I found Amy’s “My Cat Hates My Vet” informative, as well as entertaining.    I give it 5 stars and wholeheartedly suggest it to any cat guardian.

Bones & Boxes (Hetty Fox Mystery #1) by Anna Drake

 


Bones & Boxes: a Hetty Fox Cozy Mystery (Hetty Fox Cozy Mysteries Book 1)

Sixty year old Hetty was a mystery buff and, along with her black cat aptly named ‘Blackie’ and the ghost of her college fiancé, she found herself in the middle of a real live murder mystery to solve.
It began one night when a friend called on Hetty to accompany her while she checked on another friend. To Hetty’s horror, she found the friend’s body lying on the kitchen floor. Hetty and her two unusual helpers, using their sleuthing powers, try to find the killer.
A fun book to read by the fireplace with a steaming cup of hot cocoa beside you and a cat curled at your feet.

“A Motive for Murder” by Morgana Best (Volume One)

I love Morgana Best. “A Motive for Murder” is the first of a four book series in which Misty Sales, an Aussie journalist for a paranormal magazine, who inherits her aunt’s house, strange neighbors, and a cat, Diva.  Together, Misty and Diva get in the middle of a war between two witch covens. It is a true battle of good versus evil and a race to see who will find a page from a book of witchcraft that enables the holder to stay young forever.

Misty is swept off her feet by Douglas, a seemingly honest man, with good intentions.  However, Diva does not approve and shows her dislike every time he comes around.

Then there is Jamie. Everyone around Misty is warning her to stay away from this man only Diva seems to trust him.   So, what is this page that everyone is seeking and why do all her new ‘friends’ think that she has it? Who can she trust?

Even though it was the second time around, I enjoyed this cozy mystery and give it 5 stars.
