Find out about more than 70 cat breeds, including their origins and characteristics, in this pocket-sized encyclopedia.

This cat-alogue packs a whole lot of information into your pocket! Along with a photo of each breed, discover the facts and stats of each cat, including its size, where the breed originated, colors and markings, and unusual features or behaviors. You'll soon be able to tell apart a Burmese from a Siamese; a rex from a sphynx and a manx; and an American shorthair from a British shorthair.

You will also discover a lot about colors and patterns. Did you know that tabby cats and tortoiseshells are not breeds, but colors within breeds? Plus there are pages introducing cat anatomy and behavior; and the book finishes with fun facts.

The style of the Pocket Eyewitness series is perfect for all children, from reluctant readers who can easily digest the key points through to budding vets and cat-lovers who want to know more about the best pets on the planet.

Cats with facts: what more could anyone want?
We believe in the power of discovery. That's why we create books for everyone that explore ideas and nurture curiosity about the world we live in.
 
From first words to the Big Bang, from the wonders of nature to city adventures, you will find expert knowledge, hours of fun and endless inspiration in the pages of our books.
