Classical Cats: The Rise and Fall of the Sacred Cat / by Donald W. Engels

"There has been much debate about the position of the cat in ancient Greece and Rome. Artistic representations are sometimes ambiguous, and its role as a mouse-catcher seems often to have been carried out by weasels. Other evidence clearly suggests that the cat was as important to Greeks and Romans as it is to many modern people."--BOOK JACKET. "This book is the first comprehensive survey of the evidence about cats in Greece and Rome, and of their functions and representations in art. Donald Engels draws on authors from Aesop to Aristotle; on vase-painting, inscriptions and the plastic arts; and on a thorough knowledge of zoology of the cat. He also sets the ancient evidence in the wider context of the Egyptian period that preceded it, as well as the views of the Church fathers who ushered antiquity into the Middle Ages."--BOOK JACKET.

Barron's Encyclopedia of Cat Breeds : A Complete Guide to the Domestic Cats of North America / by J. Anne Helgren


A reader from California: "an almost "purr-fect" cat encyclopedia" After buying many encyclopedia cat books (6 in all) and continually being disappointed in the lack of detailed information on many subjects, such as the differences in personalities among the various breeds, I have finally found, what I believe, is the
definitive book on cat breeds. Ms. Helgren has taken her time to explain the dissimilarities among each breed and has done so in an extremely interesting and concise profile form. She has used easy to read charts for showing the various levels of behavior and general care concerns for each type. There's even a chapter on how to choose the best cat for YOUR personality. This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone who is either beginning a search or just wants to find out more about these wonderful feline companions.
