Although cats are often misunderstood as natural loners, Johnson-Bennett shows how to plan, set up, and maintain a home environment that will help multiple catsaand their ownersalive in peace. "Cat vs. Cat" will help readers understand the importance of territory, the specialized communication cats use to establish relationships and hierarchies, and how to interpret the so-called abad behaviora that leads so many owners to needless frustration.
