The independent-minded cat has been domesticated for around 5,000 years but in all that time it has held on to its mysterious ways. Here are eight fine examples of modern cat breeds: Spotted Shorthair, Russian Blue, Persian, Japanese Bobtail, Havana Brown, Blotched Tabby, Burmese, and Domestic Shorthair.
The pictures are printed on special paper that allows light to shine through. First cut the pages from the book as neatly as you can, Then color the pictures, using crayons, felt-tip pens, or paints. You'll get particularly interesting effects if you color both sides, using different colors on the backs than on the fronts. When the pictures are taped to a window, the sunlight shines through them, the way it shines through colored glass.
