These docile, heavy-coated felines are closely related to the Persian breed. Their gentle nature makes them perfect as indoor companions. Books in the comprehensive and popular Barrons Complete Pet Owners Manuals series advise on feeding, health care, housing, and all other important aspects of responsible pet ownership. Each title is individually written from first page to last by a pet trainer, veterinarian, or other pet-care specialist. All Complete Pet Owners Manuals are filled with high-quality photos and instructive line art.
