I thought I had posted this earlier today, but can't find the thread anywhere anymore, so here it goes again:

I am getting an exotic longhair in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for books for a newbie cat owner to read in order to get a good overview of what I need to know to raise a healthy, well-behaved cat. Of course I can do forum searches, etc. but it is a lot easier if I have a good book I can just open up and read. And there are probably a lot of unknown unknowns I am unaware of so I wouldn't even know to search for them (for example I was unaware that anyone even brushed their cats teeth, so I would not have thought to do that on my own and I just happened to stumble across this information).

Thanks so much!

A book that isn't so much about maintaining your cat but more so about how to read their behaviour, understand them and provide conditions for them to thrive is total cat mojo by Jackson galaxy. I read that when I got my first "my sole responsibility" cat and it was a huge help. And we are all better off for it. Happy cat, happy me :)
