This book guide to cat breeding is a digest of scientific knowledge and technical information for amateur breeders and feline professionals, as well as young veterinarians that work in the field. The latest knowledge on cat breeding is reviewed by theme: genetics, reproduction, paediatrics, health problems, nutrition, grooming and care. If you are considering breeding cats, there are several factors you need to consider before making a decision. It is not a job you should undertake lightly and we recommend reading up as much as you can on the cat breed you want to breed and what the process may entail.Cat breeding seems to be slightly less complicated than dog breeding, since you don't need to be as precise about the timing and felines seem to be far more self-sufficient at handling the mating themselves. Let's take a closer look at the process.Cat breeding can be a rewarding experience, but it's not an operation to be undertaken lightly. If you're thinking about breeding your pet, first consider the tragic surplus of unwanted cats sitting in shelters and running the streets at this very moment.
