Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Cats: Portraits of over 70 Pedigrees

Cats: Portraits of Over 70 Pedigrees - Bruce Fogle I know next to nothing about cat breeding and what I do know, I don't really agree with, but this is a very interesting window into the practice. This little book is actually quite dense with facts and there are wonderful photographs of 70 different breeds. I learned a lot about the dominant and recessive genes and how they combine to make so many amazing combinations of cats. And I really enjoyed learning what part of the world certain breeds can be traced to.
