The Complete Cat Book is a fantastic treatise of the wonderful world of cats. The book is factual, informative and fun reading. It is a must for the humans who are owned by our nation’s 69 million cats.
— Jack O. Walther, DVM, President, American Veterinary Medical Association
What is a pedigreed cat?
What standards does each breed have to meet to compete in shows?
How can owners acquire pet health insurance?
How can owners pick the right veterinarian for their cats?
The Cat Fanciers’ Association has spent one hundred years educating the cat owners and cat breeders of America on the answers to these questions. Finally, in the tradition of The American Kennel Club Complete Dog Book comes The Cat Fancier’s Association Complete Cat Book (Harper Resource; October 2004; $29.95; 0-06-270233-5). The CFA Complete Cat Book will not only become an invaluable resource to the average cat lover, but serve as a comprehensive reference for the standards for 41 breeds in show, from the organization that has created them.
The CFA Complete Cat Book includes information from an array of the top authorities in cat care, and includes the latest information on selection, nutrition, grooming, behavioral and other general cat care issues, making The Cat Fancier’s Association Complete Cat Book the most complete reference book on the subject.
Expertly written, thoroughly instructive, and wholly entertaining, this book is a benchmark work on cat care, providing both official breed standards as well as plenty of general information. For the general owner, they will find information describing the history, physical description, and personality of their beloved pet. For the breeder, it will touch on compatibility, grooming requirements, and special handling (at home or in the show ring). With the full support of the CFA, The Complete Cat Book promises to become the standard reference in every cat lovers’ home.
