Roughly 39 percent of households in the United States own a cat and the average number of cats in any household is 2.2, states the Humane Society. When your love of cats inspires you to pursue a career in the veterinary field, reading feline-friendly books can help maintain your motivation.
Reading books that are directly related to vet school allows you to get ahead in your career and learn more about treating animals and the biology of different animals so that you are prepared for the future. “Mosby’s Comprehensive Review for Veterinary Technicians” is a recommended text by the Vet Tech department at PennFoster.edu. The comprehensive review is directly related to the topics that vet school graduates need to understand.
Travels with a Cat
Many pet owners bring their beloved dogs, cats or birds with them when they plan a trip. “I & Claudius: Travels With My Cat” is an auto-biographical book that details a trip that the author took with her 19-year-old cat.
Although the story focuses on the bold and unexpected events of traveling across the United States, it is recommended for all cat lovers, suggests The Examiner. The auto-biographical story shows the humorous side of traveling with a pet, which makes it an interesting book if you enjoy comedic and heart-warming stories.
Fictional Tales Involving Cats
If you prefer fictional books, then “The Warriors” series may be the perfect set of books to appeal to your personal interests. The Warriors books start with “Into The Wild” and focus on clans of wild cats that live in the same forest.
Since the books are told from the perspective of a cat, the book is perfect for cat lovers. The complexities of the story combine with the unique perspective of different cats. It provides interesting insights into the behaviors, actions and movements of cats.
Talking to Cats
Animal psychology is a topic that may appeal to you if you plan to work with a veterinarian or you are working toward a degree in veterinary medicine. Among the books that may appeal to your interests is “The Cat Whisperer: The Secret of How to Talk to Your Cat.” The book is written by a leading veterinary journalist, states The Examiner. It provides insights from her experiences with cats and discusses ways to communicate with a feline pet.
Although the psychology of cats can seem complicated, learning to maintain a calm demeanor and handle the problems that may arise when you are treating cats is valuable to your future career. The book provides information that can help you with your feline patients and gives you advice that you can share with other cat owners.
Working in the field of veterinary medicine does not necessarily mean that you will give up your interest in cats. Books are available to help you learn new skills related to animal medicine, gain insights into the behaviors of pets or enjoy an entertaining story that involves a beloved animal.
