Breeding domestic cats is a fascinating and satisfying labor. The wide diversity within the Cat Fancy enables the breeder to choose a breed that appeals to him or her in respect to size, appearance and/or temperament.  From the tiny Singapura, the substantial and powerful Siberian, the hairless Sphynx, the graceful Siamese, the regally beautiful Bengal and the curly coated LaPerm, all are equally feline.  It would be difficult for any feline enthusiast not to be able to find a cat, among the many recognized breeds, that did not fulfill his vision of the perfect one.

While fascinating and satisfying, breeding cats also invites heartbreak and, therefore should not be entered into lightly. This book will help the prospective breeder, the new breeder and the seasoned breeder decide how to best meet the responsibilities of being a reputable breeder, while providing valuable knowledge and insight on how to best run a cattery and how to best care for breeding cats.

Special thanks and acknowledgement to world renowned feline photographer, Helmi Flick, for her support and contributions, also making this one of the most beautiful books on the market today!  Numerous others helped to make this second edition possible, from breeders, to veterinarians and judges. Over 180 pages.
