Jeanne has dodged tarantulas, served up kosher cat meals, and fed pampered felines in Waterford crystal goblets—all while trekking from five-floor walkups to Park Avenue penthouses. She even cared for television critic Cleveland Amory’s beloved cat, Polar Bear. Cat Calls delightfully recounts Jeanne’s many experiences, from comic adventures with quirky cats to the challenges faced by a woman who’s determined to reach her clients despite midsummer blackouts and blinding snowstorms.But since Jean Adlon is no ordinary cat sitter, Cat Calls offers far more than tales of the cat. Over years of devoting herself to the needs of felines, Jeanne has become a recognized expert on cat care, and her book is designed not just to entertain but also to share valuable information and advice. Along with coauthor and Cat Fancy magazine editor Susan Logan, Jeanne has designed each of Cat Calls’ seven chapters to focus on important issues for cat owners, including adopting new pets, feeding your cat, coping with litter box problems, providing proper medical care, and much more. Within these pages, you’ll find priceless tips for keeping your kitty happy and healthy, and, just as important, for maintaining your sanity even when your feline friend decides to use the new Louis XVI dining room set as a glorified scratching post. Anecdotes about Jeanne’s furry clients add charm, humor, and specific examples of cat-care strategies that work.Whether you’re looking for commonsense cat-care advice or you simply want a to relax with stories about little cats in a big city, Cat Calls is sure to please.
