The Pet Detectives. A fun and practical way for children to learn about the responsibilities of keeping cats before they get one.


Cats can be brilliant and entertaining pets but we shouldn’t forget that like all animals they too have their own needs.

For example, did you know that cats still have lots of wild instincts like hunting, even sometimes if they’re not hungry! They love to climb, chase and hide up high when they are worried. If you think you might like a cat for a pet you need to find out what cats love to eat, who their friends and enemies are and what keeps them happy as well as healthy. You can find out by learning the facts in this book and taking on detective assignments to investigate their needs.

By going through your pet detective tasks and learning as you go you will find out if you and your family are the right owners for these special pets, then you’re ready to take care of a real one! Just as importantly, if you discover that you and a cat aren’t a perfect match you can get some pointers to other fabulous animals that might suit you better.
