This is essential reading for anyone who's ever owned, cared for, or simply cared about an animal.
Why are dogs so eager to please their owners?
Why are some cats bold and others shy?
And why do chickens hide their eggs?
In this follow-up to her groundbreaking international bestseller, Animals in Translation, animal scientist Temple Grandin delivers extraordinary insights into how animals think, helping us give our animals the best and happiest lives - on their terms, not ours.
Drawing on her latest research, she identifies the core emotional needs of animals and how to fulfil them. Whether it's creating a happy home for a dog, encouraging cats to be less antisocial, keeping pigs from being bored, or knowing if the lion pacing in the zoo is miserable or just exercising, Grandin teaches us to challenge our assumptions about animal emotions. This is essential and fascinating reading for anyone who owns or cares for an animal.
