This slender, down-to-earth volume compiles a working holistic veterinarian’s recommendations on common feline health problems, as well as maintenance of good health.  It’s readable, practical, and accessible, even for someone with little or no experience in herbalism.  Experienced herbalists might not find a ton of new information here, but it’s still nice to see things laid out with an eye to a cat’s needs, especially since not all herbs that work for humans are safe for cats.  Kidd also has some interesting and useful notes on how to get your cat to take herbs in the first place, and which herbs they’re likely to take willingly.  This book has a permanent place on my shelf, and I look forward to helping support my cat’s health with some of the herbs Kidd recommends.
