Books About the Maine Coon Cat
In association with
amazon.com, we'd like to present our selection of books about Maine
Coon cats which are carried by amazon.com.
Coon Cats: Everything About Purchase, Care, Nutrition, Reproduction,
Diseases, and Behavior (A Complete Pet Owner's Manual), Carol Himsel
Daly, 1995. This is an excellent modern guide for the pet owner, with
many color photos of beautiful cats.|
Yankee Cat: The Maine Coon, Marilis Hornidge, 1992 (3rd
edition). This book's particular strength is its evocation of the
breed's roots in Maine culture, with many fine tales about those
wonderful "shags". Many pictures of Maine Coon cats, both historical and
modern. The best book for stories and history of the Maine Coon cat.|
Is the Maine Coon Cat, Sharon P. Bass. Reprinted in 1990, this book
has actually not been updated (to our knowledge) since its original
edition in 1983. A fine book for its time, with many color illustrations
of cats that grace our pedigrees now. Sections on showing practices and
the like are a little out of date.|
to Owning a Maine Coon Cat, Abigail Greene, 1997.|
For Christopher: The Story of a Maine Coon Cat, Virginia Langley.
This is an absolutely adorable book, and should be read to every Maine
Coon lover's kids! Unfortunately out of print, but worth asking Amazon
to search for a used edition.|
Coon Cats (Cats), Stuart A. Kallen, 1996. This is listed as a
child's book, reading level 4-8 years.
