Part of a great new series of comprehensive and accessible encyclopedias on our favourite animals, this is your definitive guide to the cat. Discover the cat throughout history and culture, its anatomy, appearance and behaviour, and take in a wealth of practical advice on how to choose a cat, care, health, breeding, and showing your cat. Information on evolution and classification is included before succinct clear entries go on to cover all the main breeds of domestic cat (nearly 60), split into shorthair and longhair and organised by type. There are also entries on wild cats and helpful statistics and icons provide essential information at a glance.
