Discover the beauty of cats

People love cats, as proven by the billions of pictures of our feline friends on the Internet. But for some reason, there aren’t a lot of cat books in print. As someone who appreciates the beauty and charm of cats, I hope my humble book can rectify this.

Pure, cat portraits by Lucas collects the best pictures I released on my Lucas & Cats website over the past year, and adds previously unpublished photo’s and behind the scenes materials, as well as my thoughts on the photogenic charm of cats.

This coffee table book features pictures of well-known cat breeds like the British Shorthair and Maine Coon, but also of more obscure but still gorgeous breeds like the Selkirk Rex and Birman. The title ‘Pure’ reflects the fact that all pictures were taken with a simple white background so the cats are photographed in their ‘purest’ form - yet it’s also a pun on their famous ‘purr’.

The book contains over 190 pages of full-colour, high-quality photographs of cats, in a luxurious hardcover edition. Because of its large size, this book would be suited to keep as a centrepiece on a shelf or the coffee table. Then all cat lovers in the house will be able to browse it to their heart’s delight!

  1. There are coffee table books that feature cats, and then there are MAGNIFICENT coffee table books that feature cats. PURE cat portraits by Lucas falls into the latter category.

    Hi. Yes, your cat may well put on a bit of weight just after snpiyag but that should settle down after a few months.You do not say whether your cats are indoor cats or do they go outdoors as well. During the winter the outdoor cats put on weight whilst they laze about in the warm house but once they start spending more time outdoors again, they lose the excess’ weight they have gained. We find that the indoor cats do not have such a great winter weight fluctuation as the cats which go outdoors as well. Personally, I’ve never found a satisfactory way of separating cats feeding to ease one cat having a special diet but if you can, good for you.Cats should always have a mix of wet and dry foods and not just one or the other. When using dry food in addition to wet food, the cat will need less of the wet food than if you just gave them wet food alone. This will help them to maintain their nutritional balance. Also, when putting out dry food, remember to ensure that the cat has a good supply of liquid as well. For dry food our cats all seem to like Iams and their coats seem to be more healthy but it is not cheap. Our cats also like Vitacat Healthy Balance(I believe this is an Aldi own brand) which is much more budget friendly and still keeps them very obviously healthy. For my current cats, these are the two dry foods I try to ensure are in the house at all times as they suit them best. However, the cats will also tolerate short spells on Go-Cat, which has a good variety of flavours to keep them interested, and Whiskas dry food but consistently turn up their noses at Tesco, Sainsbury and Asda dry foods. Over the years, and new cats, I’ve tried most brands and own labels but find that it is a trial and error exercise to find what suits the animals bestHope you find what your girls prefer and the youngest cat’s weight settles soon.(Edited to add the essential reminder to ensure that liquid is available if dry food is used in addition to wet food.)
