The Manx Cat

(The books I publish are always proof read and corrected before publishing on Kindle! David Snode) Among animals possibly the most perfect, and certainly the most domestic, is the Cat. I did not think so always, having had a bias against it, and was some time coming to this belief; nevertheless, such is the fact. It is a veritable part of our household, and is both useful, quiet, affectionate, and ornamental. The small or large dog may be regarded and petted, but is generally useless ; the Cat, a pet or not, is of service. Were it not for our Cats, rats and mice would overrun our house, buildings, cul- tivated and other lands. If there were not millions of Cats, there would be billions of vermin. Since the foundation of the National Cat Club, followed by the Cat Club and the British Cat Club, of course cats have attained a more important position than they formerly held, and not only are they raised in popular favor, but have greatly increased in value, so that specimens of sufficient quality to win prizes in their classes readily find purchasers at remunerative prices, and I know of many persons, of both sexes, who keep well- filled catteries to supply the demand created by the shows. In the early days, I should say long-haired cats were decidedly in the minority, but for some years past I expect for exhibition purposes more of the long-haired have been bred than of the short-haired. I have not the slightest doubt there are hundreds, if not thousands, of cats running about the country quite good enough to win prizes at shows, and to sell for sub- stantial figures if their owners knew their value. This I have proved on more than one occasion by picking up specimens at different times in most unlikely places, with which I have taken prizes at some of our best shows. IT has been suggested to me by many of my "catty" friends that I should write a small handbook for cat fanciers. I have had many years' ex- perience with cats and kittens, and have also a real love for them, without which I do not believe any one can be a successful breeder and exhibitor of cats. What is worth doing at all is worth doing well, and to combine profit with pleasure is a most desirable end to have in view. The object, therefore, of this little book is to assist cat lovers to become cat fanciers. I trust that it may be found helpful and instructive. Here you will find a description of your cat along with judging standards and points, if you wish to show your cat. BONUS 1 You also get an entire book on care and diseases of cats and their cures. At the end of this book are more comparative judging points. BONUS 2 Also included is a several page essay on the care of kittens. BONUS 3 In addition you receive this cool little book on the zoological position of the cat family, with a descriptive list of the various feline species around the world. The second chapter describes the anatomy of the typical housecat. BONUS 4 The final bonus is a book with some quotes and cat stories. Very interesting and amusing. This is a must have for all cat lovers and fanciers.
