More Description from Internet Sources--
From neolithic farm cats to ancient Egypt's feline deities to modern house pets, and from the first cat show in 1598 with prizes for the best ratter and best mouser to the high-tone competitive exhibitions that began in the Victorian era. the domestication of the African wild cat has produced a superb, intriguing spectrum of creatures. With the wit, style, and erudition that made international bestsellers of his Catwatching and Catlore, Desmond Morris here details all 100 breeds: both the long-established and the exotic newcomers, from tough European shorthairs to delicate, slender, hot-country Orientals.
