Summary

Summary

Responding to the increasing popularity of pure-bred cats among today's pet owners, the author gives detailed information and instruction to owners who plan to breed pedigreed cats. Feline traits are summarized in detail as they relate to the periods of female heat, mating, and reproducing. Advice is offered on choosing and conditioning breeding stock. Common problems and responsibilities are spelled out as they relate to selecting mates and breeding, pregnancy, the birth process, care of newborn kittens, postnatal care of the queen, registering the animals with the proper associations, and selling the kittens to responsible owners. Full-color photos and many line drawings.
