All forty-one breeds officially recognized by the CFA are here; detailed descriptions and official standards outline their history, physical features, and personality, and include show grooming requirements and special handling tips, whether you're at home or in the ring. In addition, you'll find a lively illustrated history of the CFA, the world's largest and most prestigious registry of pedigreed cats.
The book also includes a home veterinary guide as well as in-depth information on cat selection, grooming, behavior, and other essential topics. A major section is devoted to feline nutrition, as energy and nutrition requirements vary during the different stages of a cat's life. CFA veterinary experts offer advice from choosing the right cat food to keeping your beloved feline healthy and fit.
