Try your local book store and look in the pets department. I've collected various books on cat care that way. You can also search under www.amazon.com. Even authors can be pretty opinionated but I trust books better than I trust the web usually. Although this forum certainly does have some very useful information. And there are many members here that are quite knowledgeable.

I really liked the book

"Cat vs. Cat" by Pam Johnson-Bennett

This is my first experience with more than one cat and I found this book very interesting.

The following authors have written excellent cat-knowledge books and are reputable and authoritative:

Roger Tabor
Pam Johnson-Bennett
Bruce Fogle
Larry Lochman
Desmond Morris
Wendy Christensen
John C. Wright
J. Anne Helgren

You can't go wrong with any of them. Good luck on building up your cat library.

I have a couple books by Bruce Fogle. I also have a book by Steve Duno. KISS(Keep It Simple Series) guide to cat care. This book even has information on homemade raw too. The book is not biased one way or the other. It basically lets you choose, dry, canned, dry and canned, or homemade.

I also like Christine Church's book, called How To Keep Your Indoor Cat Sane and Sound. This book doesn't support the raw meat diet but it has great information about keeping indoor cats happy. I never knew cats like classical music and that leaving some classical music on while you're not home can be very relaxing for your cat. They hate the hard rock music and heavy metal though. Christine Church says, "Although I like it, cats don't."
