I expected this book to be very gimmicky but it really pleasantly surprised me. The author does an incredible job of describing a cat's senses and how cats physically perceive the world. She also shares a lot of fun facts about cats. For instance, cats can stand much warmer temperatures than humans. Humans start avoiding heat at 115F while cats aren't bothered until 126F. Apparently, the only parts of a cats body which are sensitive to heat are it's nose and upperlip, which it uses as a kitten to locate it's mother before it's eyes are open. She also talks a lot about why cats behave the way the do and gives some very good advice for dealing with nearly any behavior problem you might encounter.
