Japanese Bobtail Cat Facts For Kids — 4 Comments

  1. Michael, during my shipping years i had purchased a book on cats at the famous Higginbothams bookshop in Chennai (Madras) called “Cats”. “CATS” by David Alderton with photographs by Marc Henrie was published in 1992 and in 2012 with many new hybrid cats introduced during the years seems outdated! I normally spent my off-duty hours from the ships engine-room reading in my cabin, hence the passion for blogging after quitting the shipping industry. “CATS” is an excellent pictorial description of different breeds of cats and that book was the foundation of my study on cats.In the Internet era,i personally feel your “P.O.C” is a encyclopaedia reference for cats.I am commenting after having read various “Cat Books” and referring different other sites on the internet.Most important, your site has an interaction with other cat-owners discussing and exchanging their own personal views on cats, something that published books lack.I personally feel that the “INTERNET” is a better space than a published book for “P.O.C” as it will always remain relevant as well as include cat owners and enthusiasts discussions.Would “P.O.C” generate more money if published in book-form? Just an idea.Excellent.

    • Thanks Rudolph. As you say the internet has something a book does not: it has interaction in comments with visitors which add significantly because they are often first hand experiences and not theory. That is priceless information.

      Also webpages can be updated all the time (if you have time!). It is much harder to update books. Although with digital publishing (on Kindle and iPad etc.) updating should be as easy as a webpage.

      I have not thought about doing a book. I don’t know if a book would make more money. PoC does quite well making money from online advertising so I have no complaints. It keeps me alive 😉

  2. Good job including the Maneki-neko bit, it’s a huge part of the Japanese Bobtail story. I think it’s interesting that they still have the same number of vertebrae in their tails, as do cats with a full sized tail. This is true in American Bobtail and Manx cats as well. Nothing cuter than a Manx wagging that tiny little puff of a tail on the real, real short ones. 🙂

    You should seriously consider rounding these all up and seeing if you could get it published as a book. Think of all those young minds who would eat this information right up. Well done!

    It’s just amazing how brilliant cats can be.
    Happy Holidays!
