Free-ranging Cats Behavior, Ecology, Management

Free-ranging Cats Behavior, Ecology, Management
By Stephen Spotte
1st Edition
Feral and stray domestic cats occupy many different habitats. They can resist dehydration for months by relying exclusively on the tissue water of their prey allowing them to colonize remote deserts and other inhospitable
places. They thrive and reproduce in humid equatorial rainforests and windswept subantarctic islands. In many areas of the world feral cats have driven some species of birds and mammals to extinction and others to the edge, becoming a huge conservation concern. With the control of feral and stray cats now a top conservation priority, biologists are intensifying efforts to understand cat behaviour, reproductive biology, use of space, intraspecies interaction, dietary requirements, prey preferences, and vulnerability to different management
strategies.

This book provides the most comprehensive review yet published on the behavior, ecology and management of free-ranging domestic cats, whether they be owned, stray, or feral. It reviews management methods and their progress, and questions several widely accepted views of free-ranging cats, notably that they live within dominance hierarchies and are highly social.
Insightful and objective, this book includes:
  • a functional approach, emphasizing sensory biology, reproductive physiology, nutrition, and space
    partitioning;
  • clear treatment of how free-ranging cats should be managed;
  • extensive critical interpretation of the world’s existing literature;
  • results of studies of cats in laboratories under controlled conditions, with data that can also be
    applied to pet cats.

Lymphoma in Dogs and Cats
By Wallace B. Morrison
1st Edition
This title is a concise yet comprehensive guide for the diagnosis and treatment of lymphomas in dogs and cats. The book is organized into two parts: noncutaneous and cutaneous lymphomas. This practical manual is designed to assist the practitioner in identifying lymphomas that can be treated and defining the outcome that can be expected. Includes detailed discussion about the assessment methods used to help diagnosis lymphomas including histological classification, immunophenotyping, AgNOR assessment, and clinical laboratory findings and how these results determine the method of treatment. Lymphoma in Dogs and Cats contains detailed instruction for the use of standard chemotherapeutic protocols and radiation therapy along with different treatment options such as rescue and nutritional therapy. Easy to read tables summarize recommended diagnostic work-ups, clinical staging and recommended treatment protocols.
