Discover which kitten is perfect for you! Who's going to be your new feline friend? Choosing a kitten is a lot of fun, but it's also an important decision. This unique guide shows you how to select the breed which most perfectly matches your personality and environment. Seeking a laid-back, comforting friend? Persians and Scottish folds are renowned for their loving, gentle dispositions. Need a cat with social skills? A Ragdoll will greet guests at the door, and a Bombay will happily perform tricks for company. Looking for dog-like friendliness? A Colorpoint shorthair or Havana brown will lavish you with the unbounded affection of a loyal lap dog. Active and energetic? You'll enjoy the boundless curiosity and daredevil antics of a Somali or Himalayan/Kashmir. Choose a kitten as you would choose a partner-- carefully! With the help of a personal questionnaire, profiles of various breeds and their personalities, and charts listing the main characteristics of more than 40 cat breeds, you'll be on your way to caring for a cuddly new kitten.
