BOOK DESCRIPTION FROM INSIDE DUST JACKET: Still the most enigmatic members of the animal kingdom, cats have man fascinating and enchanting facets to their personalitites. Worshiped by the ancient Egyptians, feared and hated by the medieval Christians, cats became objects of sentiment only in the last century.
The magnificent color photographs in this book capture equally the curiosity of high spirited kittens and the splendor of classic show winners. All the major pedigree cat breeds are identified and described to help the would-be owner to decide which variety to choose, together with the important points to look out for.
Anyone who has experienced the considerable pleasure of owning a happy, affectionate cat - whether a champion or merely a much loved moggie-will find this book thoroughly delightful.
