As a part of the blog tour, today I share my review of Let’s Talk About Cats by Anita Kelsey. As a mommy to three kitty furbabies, I was excited to read this one! There is also a giveaway going on on Facebook.
Let’s Talk About Cats: Conversations on Feline Behaviour features 16 unique in-depth conversations with devoted feline experts, each chapter answering a question about our cats. An abundance of catty conversation points which provide many useful takeaways for cat owners to improve their own every-day connection with their cats.
This book, the first of its kind, presents the combined wisdom of experts from all over the world on the psychology, behaviour, diet and training of cats, in a relaxed and conversational style. Contributors include Jackson Galaxy, star of My Cat From Hell, and composer David Teie, whose ground-breaking album, Music for Cats, was released by the Universal Music Group.
Each illuminating chapter exudes a love for cats and a wealth of fascinating insights.
This book is packed with helpful advice, guidance and true stories from the author’s own professional experience of cat care topics, explaining the most important cat concepts, giving food for thought and expanding on all the most important issues and debates in the cat world.

Let’s Talk About Cats is a nonfiction book by cat expert Anita Kelsey: She has a degree in Feline Behavior and Psychology, is a cat groomer, and more. Needless to say, she knows what she is talking about. She is based out of the UK, so the spellings of certain words are UK based (which I never have an issue with) and some of what is discussed would apply to UK readers more than US readers, but it is still a very well written book and I learned some things as well (I have only been a cat momma for 5 years and still constantly learning.)
Let’s Talk About Cats is 15 chapters of learning and one chapter of a ‘bookend’ telling us about The Cat Man of Aleppo. Despite being in the UK she does talk with US based experts including Jackson Galaxy who hosted the television show My Cat From Hell. Each chapter of the book deals with a certain question that cat owners/guardians may have. There is a discussion with an expert of the question presented and also summary of what you have just read at the end of the chapter and there are also real life case situations that apply to the chapter. Chapters include Why Does My Cat Scratch Furniture, What Should I Be Feeding My Cat, touching and giving cats attention, all the way to dealing with elderly cats and euthanasia.
Whether you are a new cat parent or experienced one, you will learn something from this book. Let’s Talk About Cats is for every cat parent and cat lover out there!
