His latest book, Your Cat: The Owner’s Manual: Hundred of Secrets, Surprises, and Solutions for Raising a Happy, Healthy Cat (Grand Central Life & Style) was published in May, 2012. Its bestselling companion, Your Dog: The Owner’s Manual, is now out in paperback. He has written more than 20 books in all, including Chicken Soup for the Pet-Lover’s Soul, the fastest-selling pet-related book in history, and The Healing Power of Pets, a best-seller that’s still one of the most popular pet books in print. He has been a contributor to Parade magazine, Reader’s Digest and
