Cat Body Language looks at all the postures cats are likely to adopt in and around the home, both with other cats and with their owners. Using the psychology of cat behaviour, it explains how a cat is likely to react in stressful situations, such as during a visit to the vet, when it is ill, and before or after a fight. All the most common behavioural traits of cats are examined in detail, from raking the dirt in the backyard and kneading their paws while being stroked to chattering their teeth at flying birds and meowing when a can of food is opened. Also included is a whole section devoted to the cat’s most expressive body part – the tail. Cat Body Language is an easy-to-use reference guide that enables cat owners to read the signals their pets are giving through their body language. Cats are often regarded as being part of the family, and this book will help readers understand more about their quiet companions.

Animal Body Language is part of the R.U.F.F. Program, innovative animal based teaching. This curriculum was developed after children were bitten by dogs running around Chinle. One little boy ended up with a scar from the top of his forehead angled down to his chin. He had crawled under a trailer and tried to pet a dog and was savagely bitten in the face. This small boy had his life forever changed from this horrible incident. Something had to be in the schools to help the children understand more about dog behavior to avoid incidents like this. This curriculum is complete and has thematic unit tie-ins in social studies, language, behavior, safety issues, reading, art, writing and drama. There are suggested student activities that involve games, quizzes, animal behavior board set-up ideas, journal and creative writing. Animals helped extrapolate expressions of emotions and incorporated self-esteem where all else had failed. It teaches responsible behavior that proved extremely effective. www.ruffprogram.com

Why does the tail wag the brain? What is virtual autism? Why can't our avatars walk hand-in-hand? Will a nonverbal Babel fish save the world? Jeffrey Ventrella, a seasoned virtual worlds programmer and visual language expert, reviews the history of avatars, smileys, and other expressive forms, and considers a future of spectacular creativity. This book combines thoughtful scholarship with amusing anecdotes from the trenches of Silicon Valley. Virtual Body Language presents a thorough analysis of the neurological, linguistic, aesthetic, and technical aspects of how nonverbal communication can be distributed over the internet. Based on nearly a decade of avatar development, Ventrella has the practical foundation on which to justify even the most outrageous claims, regarding what "avatar" might mean in the future.
Cat body language is harder to read than dog body language. Perhaps that's by design (I mean...evolution). Dogs don't seem to have the same talents of reserve and constraint. Dog expressions just flop out in front of you.

A guide for the cat lovers about the cat behavior, cat attractants, cat breeds, cat health and food, type of cats, cats as pets, fictional cats, films about cats, historical cats. A book full with pictures of the most important cat breeds, tips and advice for cat behavior, cat diseases and how to take care of the cats. The cat, also called the domestic cat or house cat, is a small feline carnivorous mammal of the subspecies Felis silvestris catus. Its most immediate pre-domestication ancestor is the African wild cat, Felis silvestris lybica. The cat has been living in close association with humans for at least 3,500 years; the Ancient Egyptians routinely used cats to keep mice and other rodents (mostly rats) away from their grain (and also believed that cats were sacred to the goddess Bastet). The history of the domestic cat may stretch back even further, as 8,000-year-old bones of humans and cats were found buried together on the island of Cyprus.
