Celia Haddon – Cats Behaving Badly


My main problem with this book is that the entire thing felt like one long advertisement for Feliway. It felt like that was the answer to one half of the questions and the answer to the other half was to rehome your cat. Celia Haddon, the book’s author, is a cat agony aunt, and while she does offer a fair amount of good advice in this book, it also gets pretty repetitive. and I felt as though some of the questions could have been combined or removed altogether.

Still, if you can get past that then it’s a decent enough reference book, and you can’t say that it’s not comprehensive. It covers pretty much every area you could ask for including questions about breeding cats or caring for specific injuries or illnesses. I read it from cover to cover though, and I guess that’s not really how it’s designed to be read.

All in all, it was okay, and it pretty much lived up to the low expectations that I had for it. I’m not sure if I’d necessarily recommend it though, even to other cat owners. Even the anecdotes of the cats that Haddon has met fell a little flat. There was just something about it that stopped me from engaging with it, and that’s a shame. Maybe I just already know enough about our furry feline friends.
