Learn to identify every meow, tail swish, and slow blink in this fun, informative, illustrated guide to feline body language, from the author of Doggie Language.

Have you ever wanted to know what your cat really thinks? Professional artist Lili Chin explores felines in this whimsical visual guide to reading and understanding the feelings and behaviors of your kitty.

Packed with playful, vibrant, and informative illustrations, Chin demystifies common behaviors—including sniffing, rubbing, kneading, staring, stalking, and more—so you can help your kitty feel safe, secure, stimulated, and happy. Did you know that the further apart your cat’s ears are, the less relaxed he is feeling? Or that when kitty bumps you with the top of her head, it can be a sign of affection, a request for interaction, or her way of saying, “You are my friend”?

A well-known artist in the animal training and welfare world, Chin creates informational artwork backed by scientific research and vetted by animal behaviorists and veterinarians. From head rubs and tail twitches to eye blinks and ear flicks, Kitty Language is a fun and quick read to help pet parents connect with and appreciate their feline friends.

    ESTABLISHED SERIES: Doggie Language has sold more than 100K copies, including foreign rights to 16 territories.

    WELL-KNOWN ANIMAL ARTIST: Chin is widely known in the animal training/welfare world and her Cat Language and Interactive Cat Play posters are used at vet clinics around the world.

    ONLINE GIFT STORE FOLLOWING: Chin provides illustration services, does custom pet illustrations, and manages her own online gift store with a catalog of prints and gift products (doggiedrawings.net).

    SCIENCE-BASED: Illustrations and content have been vetted by cat behaviorists and veterinarians.

    FOR CAT OWNERS AND PROFESSIONALS: A perfect gift for kids, a new cat owner, as a self purchase to better understand your pet, or as a reference guide for clinics, animal shelters, cat foster parents, or animal adoption centers.

The perfect gift for dog owners.”—Dr. Zazie Todd, author of WAG: The Science of Making Your Dog Happy; “This little hard-backed book packs more information about canine body language into 126 pages than hours of video narrated by a canine behavior expert.”—Nancy Kearns, Whole Dog Journal
