Think Like A Cat Book Review

If you are a cat person then you probably have come across the name Pam Johnson-Bennett, CCBC at some point.  I actually came across her name several years ago when I was having a behavioral problem with my cat.  I found a message board where people would post questions and she was the behavior specialist who would respond with great information on that particular situation.  I do not remember what my cat was going through at the time, but I do remember being grateful for having found her. Now that I have a kitten, she was the first place I turned to!

Cat Behavioral Problems

Pam Johns0n-Bennett is sometimes referred to as the cat whisperer, but she is actually a pioneer and leader in the field of cat behavior consulting and the go to person for cat behavioral problems.
