Cat Breed Guide

By: Stephanie Warren Drimmer

Gary Weitzman

From Russian Blues and Munchkins to Maine Coons and Persians, this comprehensive guide gives an overview of 71 different cat breeds. Each profile includes the breed’s “cat stats”: country of origin, size, coat color and pattern, grooming difficulty, and cat-titude. With the help of veterinarian Dr. Gary Weitzman and cat behaviorist Mieshelle Nagelschneider, kids will also learn how to choose the right cat for them, how to take care of their new feline friend, and how to understand its behavior. Fun feature spreads cover cats in popular culture, prehistoric cats, and the house cat’s wild cousins. This comprehensive guide is perfect for the cat-crazy kid, and is an excellent reference for families who are bringing home their first four-legged family member.

Series Review
Breed descriptions, general information, and fascinating facts are combined to present highly appealing references to popular pets. Cat Breeds, a JLG selection, devotes at least a spread to each of more than 60 breeds, covering history, physical features, and behavior characteristics. A clear full-page photograph includes labels for key body parts. Dog Breeds, on the other hand, covers nearly 400 breeds: Most receive brief profiles with a small photo, while better known breeds expand to fuller treatments over a full page or more. Engaging topical features complement the straightforward breed information. These range from scientific (“The Cat Brain”) to historical (“Hero Hounds”) to entertaining (“Cat Hotels”), adding useful and interesting content, especially in Cat Breeds, where there is room for fuller details and images. Final sections shift to pet ownership, covering breed choice, care, and training. First choices for pet sections.
