Leading veterinarian Bruce Fogle puts his years of expertise in animal behavior to work in the Encyclopedia of the Cat, a thorough and engaging guide to the feline. A detailed history of the cat worldwide introduces readers to the fascinating facts behind the feline, while following chapters address the nuts and bolts of the cat (muscles and movement, heart and lungs, skeletal system) as well as feline behavior. The remainder of the book belongs to a discussion of cat breeds--Munchkin and Bombay to name a few--and a look at caring for the cat, including feeding and nutrition, signs of illness, and first aid. With over 1,300 full-color photographs sprinkled throughout, this encyclopedic look at our furry friends is a feast for any true feline fancier.
