Royal Canin Encyclopedia

The World Cat Congress has collaborated with Royal Canin in the production of a new Cat Encyclopedia that was launched at the Royal Canin “International Cat Breeders Convention” in La Grande Motte, France in June this year.

Nearly 20 years after its first edition, the Royal Canin Encyclopedia has been entirely redesigned with new content and updated layout.

The 496 page reference document brings together the latest state-of-the art knowledge about cats, co-written by 18 scientists, veterinarians and cat-experts from around the world.

The Encyclopedia is organized into 2 main themes:
1 - The first part of the book focuses on 58 distinctive cat breeds and on the ‘Cat Fancy’, the world of cat shows and has been created in collaboration with the World Cat Congress.
2 - The second part discusses elements such as the role cats play in todays’ society, their evolution from their origins as a solitary predator to their current life as a pet.

The book also includes information on what are the main diseases in cats and how to detect them, as well as exclusive insights into cat anatomy, behavior and physiology and how their origin has an impact on these.

Royal Canin believes that it is essential to learn about, understand and respect these behavioral and physiological insights in order to ensure a cat’s well-being.

The Cat Encyclopedia aims to share scientific knowledge about cats to the general public.

The Royal Canin Encyclopedia is only available through your local Royal Canin offices.
