Format: Paperback
Stefan Ball and Judy Howard are Trustees at Mount Vernon home of Dr Bach and his Bach Flower Remedies. They teach there and have both written books on how to use and understand the remedies. This book is a little different as instead of humans it concentrates on the character of cats, our sometimes mysterious companions. For more in depth knowledge of the remedies you should read Judy's Step by Step, or Stefan's Teach Yourself books, but this book stands alone if you just want to use them on your cats.

I am a Bach Practitioner, cat lover and owner and this book helped me to understand the nature of felines and apply the remedies to my own cats and those I encounter in my volunteer work with animal rescue centres. I have done feline behavior courses but I still found this book useful because it is an easy reference handbook, simple, cost effective and yet in depth about how the remedies work on cats, how to select them and when to use them. We often think, 'if only our pets could talk' - and this book shows us how to read their signals and understand what they are trying to tell us.

I am in no doubt at all that the remedies work on people and now that I know more about feline needs I am also getting amazing results with them. As anyone who has ever been owned by one will know cats are very sensitive intuitive beings and the Bach Remedies work on their emotions to keep them calm and happy when things change in their environment or when they have an illness.

Since reading this book I often refer back to it to help friends whose cats have a problem, and I have given this as a present to cat owners. My first copy is now so battered from being frequently thumbed through and loaned out that I may be buying a second copy soon!

This book would be useful to cat lovers everywhere who want to be able to communicate better with their cat and give them a helping hand when needed.

I have a cat who was aggressive from an early age, which made it very difficult to be affectionate towards him without getting scratched or bitten, and a hard time for my older female cat. He developed some strange behaviours like pulling his hair out and trying to nest in everything as time went on and after consulting a vet, i bought this book to see if I could find an alternative to conventional methods and medications in an attempt to calm him down and make him feel happier (and us). I had to read the book a couple of times to get it into my head but i followed the guidance, which includes information on the Bach Flower Remedies and how to use them. I also bought a book speciically about the Bach Flower Rememdies for animals and have found that the two together do provide a solution and a happier cat.

This book has been my first introduction into Bach flower remedies, and I have to say that I have found it very interesting and inspiring. I had often heard people mention Bach remedies but was unaware they could be used in animals as well as people, which I found fascinating as a trainee animal healing practitioner and a trainee cat behaviourist. I cannot personaly comment on the effectivness of the remedies on animals as of yet, but I will certainly be getting one one of my clients to act as a guinea-pig after reading this book!

Overall I found the book very informative and easy to read and definetly a good introduction into the world of Bach flower remedies for animals. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is although most of the veterinary information in the book is correct as an ex-veterinary nurse I had a couple of eek moments! When I read the author's recommendation for using frozen peas on an animal suffering from heat-stroke!! yes a bath of cold water to dip them in, but not an item that is below freezing! Not unless you want to send them straight from heat-stroke into shock!!

The comment about cats self regulating themselves in regards to food intake had pritty much the same effect!..... Who ever came up with that theory in first place (as I have heard it often) has alot to answer for!! Cats do not self regulate them selves EVER in terms of how much food they will eat if it is there for the taking, weather a feral cat or a pet cat. There is a very good reason for this, a cats willingness to eat food and hunt is not connected to hunger at all, the two stimuli belong to different areas of the brain completely. Eating is actually connected to a cats survival mechanism, so if the food is there a cat will eat it to ensure they survive another day, it has absoluetly nothing to do with hunger. But otherwise a good book, which I would recommend :)

Improving Your Cat's Life Naturally 30 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Anyone wanting to improve the quality and increase the longevity of their feline companion's life should own this reference book. Based on the teachings of Dr. Edward Bach, a prominent physician in the early 1900s, who was concerned not only with the physical problems of his patients, but with their emotional outlook as well. This book reminds us that cats are as individual as humans--each with their own set of emotional and health issues. The 38 Bach Flower Essences are listed alphabetically, with a general description as well as specific behavioral traits exhibited by cats that each remedy could correct. Suggested remedies for humans having difficulty dealing with injured or ailing cats are also given. No previous knowledge or experience with flower essences is needed to start using this information immediately.

Good book on flower essences + animals (limited to Bach only, which is not good) 15 Dec 2006
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've studied flower essences for over ten years. I own several books on flower essences + animals, and this is in the top four. I use it all the time for my several cats.

However, I am giving this book only four stars. As nice as this book is, it is limited to ONLY Bach's original 39 flower essences mainly from England. Nowadays, flower essences are much more than the first 39, including flowers from North America (Northern California, deserts of Arizona and New Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, Florida); Scotland; Australia bush; New Zealand; South Africa; South America; Central America; to mention a few. Bach died young in 1936, leaving his work unfinished, and many people in the last 70 years have taken up where he left off, much expanding the number and quality of essences (depending on where in the world the flowers are indigenous).

Frankly, books on Bach's first 39 flower essences are so ubiquitous that I now avoid them in favor of books covering flower essences from other parts of the world besides England. Plants of England are not the only plants in existence! I am REAL tired of books getting published involving only Bach's original 39 essences. Even though Bach "bumped into" his first 39 essences, Bach's essences are not the holy grail of flower essences! Look further afield than Bach's essences.
