Written by a cat-care expert, this comprehensive, fully illustrated resource, including a guide to over 100 varieties of cats, answers all the questions cat owners have about their favorite, and sometimes finicky, felines.
Susie Page, an All-Breed Judge and the owner of six Burmese cats, shares her in-depth knowledge of feline facts in this thorough and easy-to-use volume. The Complete Cat Owner's Manual contains all the essentials: choosing the right cat; bringing a new cat or kitten home; grooming, exercising, training, and feeding; easing the trauma of traveling; and maintaining the cat's general health. A special section presenting specific information on over 100 varieties makes this a valuable book not only for ordinary cat owners but also for those who breed and show cats professionally.
With over 400 full-color photographs and illustrations throughout, this is the book the millions of cat-fanciers in America have been waiting for.

Not a bad guide for a newbie, but as someone who has had two cats and fostered kittens, most of it is old news. The species pages are interesting, though. Read full review

My go-to book for cat info. Short, sweet, to the point. Not too expensive, it has nice pictures, several breeds in the back of the book and very informative and organized. Everything I look for in a cat care book in a good size. Recommended. Read full review
