Different Cat Breeds

Long Hair Cats

There are so many different cat breeds - but the popular ones include many long hair cats. Actually many think that a pedigree cat is a long haired cat.

And these longhaired different cat breeds are all beautiful... Their coat can be ten times longer than that of short haired cats. And because of that they require a lot more care - you need to brush them often, so they are not for the lazy cat owner. (There are exceptions to the rule - check the Turkish Angora cats for example)

Almost all of them have two-layered coats: a short, soft undercoat and a longer coat of coarser hair.

Still, once they have been well groomed, these different cats breeds of long haired cat are a beautiful sight to behold... They look luxurious, delicate and regal.

This book travels with the King Tut - Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition on his world tour of ten cities from March 2018 onwards

Tutankhamun: In My Own Hieroglyphs tells the story, for older children, of the life and afterlife of the famous young pharaoh in his own words. Tutankhamun tells us about the trouble he got into as a child in Akhenaten's palace in the new city of Akhetaten, and how he became a boy pharaoh. As we learn, his life changed a lot when he died as a teenager, and long years of boredom started in his tomb with only his pet monkey Fingers and his treasure for company. He did meet some of the Egyptian gods, of course, and had fun scaring off tomb robbers, but it was mostly rather dull. Then one day, some new and strange people, including a Mr. Howard Carter, arrived and began to take all the treasures out of his royal tomb. Fortunately, through the eyes of his beautiful golden mask, Tutankhamun, could have fun again traveling around the world
