THE PET WAR is a hilarious story about the timeless battles of dog vs. cat, brother vs. sister, know-it-all vs. know-nothing. Eleven-year-old Otto wants a dog. His twelve-year-old perfect sister, Lexi, wants a cat. Their mother, who works very long hours as a nurse, wants neither. Pets are expensive so who's going to pay for everything? And what happens to the pet when the siblings are at their dad's for the weekend? Otto has an idea. What if he got a job and earned enough money to pay for the dog? Then Lexi has to open her big mouth. She proposes that whichever sibling can raise enough money first will decide which pet they get. Oddly enough, their mom and dad agree. With Otto and Lexi each out to defeat the other, their business plans become more elaborate and involved. As the competition gets fiercer, the stakes get higher, and the battle lines have been drawn, so let the Pet War begin. . . .

In 1894, a lighthouse keeper named David Lyall arrived on Stephens Island off New Zealand with a cat named Tibbles. In just over a year, the Stephens Island Wren, a rare bird endemic to the island, was rendered extinct. Mounting scientific evidence confirms what many conservationists have suspected for some time—that in the United States alone, free-ranging cats are killing birds and other animals by the billions. Equally alarming are the little-known but potentially devastating public health consequences of rabies and parasitic Toxoplasma passing from cats to humans at rising rates. Cat Wars tells the story of the threats free-ranging cats pose to biodiversity and public health throughout the world, and sheds new light on the controversies surrounding the management of the explosion of these cat populations. This compelling book traces the historical and cultural ties between humans and cats from early domestication to the current boom in pet ownership, along the way accessibly explaining the science of extinction, population modeling, and feline diseases. It charts the developments that have led to our present impasse—from Stan Temple's breakthrough studies on cat predation in Wisconsin to cat-eradication programs underway in Australia today. It describes how a small but vocal minority of cat advocates has campaigned successfully for no action in much the same way that special interest groups have stymied attempts to curtail smoking and climate change. Cat Wars paints a revealing picture of a complex global problem—and proposes solutions that foresee a time when wildlife and humans are no longer vulnerable to the impacts of free-ranging cats.

Spike, a brown Spaniel, has always been interested in certain aspects of humans' lives, so it was no surprise that the dog kept up with the humans' news reports. One day while at home relaxing with his great pal Doug, a Golden Retriever, the two were shocked when cats won the contest for best pet of the year. To Spike and Doug, cats are lazy and mean creatures that only think about themselves. After learning this, Spike thought of a way to make the humans change their minds and redo that poll.After surveying the animals in the city and learning that all the animals were outraged at the results, Spike told them of his plan for his group to help the humans around the city until they see that they were the best animals and not the cats. However, when the cats learned of Spike's team's intentions, they went straight into action. These animals would not take that title from the cats, especially not a dog!In "The Fight for Best Pet," Spike along with his friends, Doug the Golden Retriever, Tweet the yellow Warbler, Charlee the Hamster, and the other various animals, attempt to show the humans that they're the best. However, the cats do not plan to go down without a fight, and they will do anything to keep their title, even if it means turning their enemies into dog food.
