KIRKUS REVIEW

Unlike Unkelbach's Tiger Up a Tree (KR, 1973) this respects both the pet's inherent cat nature and the average owner's limitations -- except possibly for that five meal feeding schedule recommended for eight-week old kittens. Mostly this is a familiar mix of homegrown photos and anecdotes and middle of the road advice with odds and ends of cat history, poetry and physiology thrown in. Rockwell is sensible where it most counts, but annoyingly silly in minor ways (viz: ""In those days [ancient Egypt] a human funeral cost the equivalent of $1,500""). Marginal.
