A stunning celebration of all things feline, from domestication and anatomy to practical advice on breeds and cat care

Are you a feline fanatic? Could you tell the difference between a Housecat and an Ojos Azules? Do you want to know how to keep your kitty happy and healthy?

The Cat Encyclopedia is a comprehensive cat compendium that has all the facts about cats and kittens. It's packed with beautifully photographed profiles of different breeds from the Maine Coon to the Khao Manee, and includes information on caring for your own cat.

This book also offers information on the science and history of house cats. Find out how cats were domesticated and developed into separate breeds, and see their prominence in art, literature, and superstition. A chapter on feline biology focuses on the anatomy of cats - including the nervous system, digestion, and muscles - and also features detailed descriptions of cat senses and coat patterns.

With help on cat care - from preparing for your cat's arrival and essential equipment to healthcare and training - The Cat Encyclopedia is the perfect guide for cat lovers.
