The book is written in an easy to read and understandable style. In a straight forward, no nonsense fashion, Elliott Lang covers all aspects of keeping bombay cats as pets. I have always been in the company of animals. That is the one thing I am most thankful for. My lovely pets have always been around to provide unconditional affection and love when I needed it the most. My father was instrumental in making me grow fond of animals. He always kept me around animals. I guess he was trying to help me learn how to be tolerant and loving from these amazing creatures. Trust me, some of the biggest life lessons that I have gained have come from these beautiful creatures. My family, too, has always been hands on with the pets in the household. Whether it was bathing, feeding or taking care of these animals, my family relied on pure instincts and ensured that the animals go the best of everything. These animals were the centre of all our activities. There was not a single day that did not begin with a discussion about these pets. What to feed them? How to take care of a cat or dog that is ailing? What is the most nutritious thing to feed them? These were common dinner table conversations while I was growing up. So, needless to say, I have had a lot of practical training with respect to taking care of different breeds of animals. Sometimes, I learnt from my family and sometimes, your pet will just tell you what he or she needs. Today, I am in a very privileged place where I can share this information with pet lovers across the globe. I would have never been able to provide you with so much comprehensive information without the knowledge that I gained from my father, my family and of course my beloved cats.
