    I like that this book has new information even for someone like me, who loves cats and knows a lot about them. I appreciate that the author supports adoption and explains to any doubters why should they fix their cat. And why it's better to have a cat that is indoor only.It's a good book for anyone, who wants additional info about cats, and for people who consider getting a cat, because it offers vital information for your happy life together. It's easy to get the info you want, because the book is divided into chapters about specific theme and it's all written as questions and answers.I took one star down, because sometimes, I wasn't comfortable with her jokes. She tries writting happy light informative reading about cats, but sometimes, she tried too hard with the jokes and it was bordering on offensive. The other thing that didn't suit me was her overusing numbers, like I don't need to have exact stats for what you're saying... But I know that some people like that kind of info, so you might be fine with that.Anyway, overall I can recommend it, it's good and informative.

    I don't want to completely knock this, because I've heard Justine Lee on the radio and been impressed with her advice, but this is an awkwardly presented book. It's not like you can read the book from cover to cover, as it's mainly laid out in question (and short) answer form, which makes for some repetitive reading if you are going cover to cover. The author has a light touch to her answers but the joking tone got to be annoying as well. The other problem I had with this is the somewhat haphazard organization of the book. Some effort was made to loosely give it some structure but it doesn't seem to make much sense. It's a shame because I think there are some good things in there (especially about litter boxes, obesity and general cat health). Still, I definitely wouldn't recommend spending money on buying a copy, if you can get it from the library it's good for casually paging through and reading whatever strikes your fancy.

    If there’s anything you want to know about cats, It’s A Cat’s World…You Just Live In It is the book to get. It has 224 questions and answers by Justine Lee, a veterinarian who has cats of her own. I liked how she throws in some humor into her answers and her love for cats come through.  I loved her last sentence:"We should all learn an important life lesson from our cats--take lots of catnaps, don't stress out, rule the roost, let someone else take care of you and pick up your crap, and be content with the simple things in life--a nap, a sunbeam, and a warm lap to love." This is a great reference book and an enjoyable read for any cat lover!

    I really enjoyed this book and it was an easy read. It answered some of the questions that I've kind of wondered but never asked my vet. I always thought that my Orange and White male cats were really outgoing and I was right. It answered some basic questions as to why my cat break out in a 50 yard dash across my apt everyday. Why my cat loves cat grass or he will chow down on my house plants. I too will sacrifice my spider plant if he doesn't have any grass.I just like her witty but not to serious presentation of the book.

    Thanks to those of you who suggested this book. This is a very informative book for people who are new to cats and people who think they are experts (like me). I was especially interested in the top 10 toxic household products and the top 10 toxic plants. Also, the part about looking for signs of illness in you cat was very helpful. The author has some strong opinions about how many cats you should own which I disagree with, but overall it is a must read for everyone who loves cats.

    This was pretty funny. It was eye-opening to read that the silly things my cat does like "barking" at birds that fly around outside and following me into the bathroom everyday, are actually normal things that cats do. It makes me love them even more! haha Justine is clearly a knowledeable person and she cracked me up!

    Fun to read, great for those new to cats and for veteran owners. The author does focus on big company foods and is biased towards them, with specific mentions (sponsors?) Otherwise great information from the serious to the silly.

    Breezy intro cat guide. Probably not informational enough to serve as a reference book for first-time cat owners, and I disagree pretty strongly with its advice re: feeding/nutrition. There are some funny anecdotes, but I wouldn't consider this an essential read.

    I was a little confused by how the information in this book was put together but I did enjoy reading it. It was very informative and insightful and I enjoyed the humorous approach to cat behavior.

    It's nonfiction, it's writing tries just a tad too hard to be "clever", but it answers some cat questions I had. That's all I can say about it.

    It was witty, down to earth, and simple read. Finished the entire book within 2 hours.

    This was a humorous look at owning a cat, written by a vet who tells it like it is.
