Tyler, TX (PRWEB) April 08, 2013
Approximately 33% of U.S. households own at least one cat – but do 86.4 million cats have caregivers who understand what it takes to keep them happy?
Reflections of a Cat Whisperer is a unique autobiography of Mary Ann Clifford. It contains short stories, thoughts, and insights about her adventures with cats.
Relevant to animal lovers anywhere, readers will enjoy humorous and inspiring feline tales, as well as discovering some of the unique solutions Clifford came up when faced with cats with physical disabilities, emotional problems, medical needs, or a combination of these issues.
An expert on felines, Clifford has been involved in almost every aspect of the cat world: she has worked with rescue programs, humane societies/animal shelters, the veterinary field, the cat fancy world of showing cats, and also has worked as a lobbyist for animal rights.
Much of her book discusses her life with special-needs cats. For example, Clifford tells about dealing with cats with behavioral problems, diabetes, and heart disease.
Clifford shares how humans and felines can have a mutually beneficial relationship. Her book not only contains how cats have helped to build lasting relationships between humans but it also includes stories of pet therapy that demonstrate how felines can aid people struggling through either an emotional or health problem.
“The utilization of cats in therapy has finally taken hold ... I have seen barriers broken down each time a cat reaches out to a human in need,” says Clifford. “A cat has the ability to reach a patient’s inner soul when no other human can accomplish it.”
