Picked up this book at the beginning of Jess and I's new adventure with Sam and Zoey - our two new cats!
The book offers lots of insight into how to welcome cats into your home and helpful tips scattered throughout. (Sam and Zoey skipped right over the gradual introduction suggested and met each other almost too quickly.)
The biggest takeaway for me is to encourage cats to express their "wild side," ie. play hunting, eating after play, and using lots of vertical space in the home.

Jackson Galaxy, the exotically-bearded fellow of the “my cat from hell” video series, fills this book with useful tips about how to start your relationship with a small fierce predator in the right way.
Key among his tips is the creation of a cat base camp. A brilliant idea and one that worked well when I hosted a disturbed shelter cat for a while- she arrived traumatized and left calmly and all because of following Galaxy’s advice.
He is a true cat lover. I do wonder if toxoplasmosis has entered his brain as it does with rats, making them want to be with the cats that eat them. If I were to follow his advice to the letter, my house would be a web of cat walkways and litter boxes, cozy nests and places to run. This is an fine and good but people often need space, too, areas where the chance of spring- propelled felines flinging themselves overhead is minimized.
Despite that, this book is filled with calming advice and information and well worth a read if you are planning to adopt a cat.
And do plan to adopt a cat. And do PLAN to adopt a cat.

All sorts of suggestions and inspiration for the cat owning DIYer, ideas for creating walkways and play areas and highways around your living space to keep your cat(s) happy and engaged and not fighting with each other and you.
People in this book are perhaps a bit mad. One created a highway across their ceiling (after donating one part of their home totally to their cats), complete with a nest nailed to the ceiling. A huge creation, and I’m sure the cats felt they were in heaven. I wonder what the landlord here would think if I tried it...
And of course I can’t help but think of Winnie the Pooh and Piglet walking through the hundred acre woods looking down to avoid encouraging the jagulars to jump down on them.
I recently had a cat visit who, as she got more comfortable, started flinging herself across rooms, claws outstretched (so as to grab the landing spot). Twenty five pounds or heavier, she made a terrifying projectile. One can only hope the cats in these cat-ified homes know enough not to land on their owners unexpectedly.

A bit of cat wisdom and lots of talk about addictions. Would rather preferred more of the former and less of the latter.
