book-herbCatCareDr.Kidd’s Guide to Herbal Cat Care
by Randy Kidd

‘Cats are not small dogs’, as they tell you at vet college. Nothing is more pertinent than when dealing with cats with herbs or essential oils. If you have a cat, then get a cat book, do not assume that there is complete crossover with herbs. There is most definitely not.

This is a good example of a cat book that will keep you out of trouble. Again – if in doubt, consult your vet for a diagnosis and then to chat about treatment options.

book-secretThe Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in Direct Perception of Nature
by Stephen Harrod Buhner

A discussion of plants and how man related to, relates to and how he should, in future, relate to plants. Buhner maintains ‘the heart is a brain in its own right’ and goes on to explore the physical mechanisms of heart based cognition; indigenous people know of the properties of their local flora – not through trial and error experimentation, but ‘from the plants themselves’.

An intriguing book.
