Feline Husbandry: Diseases and Management in the Multiple-Cat Environment by Niels C. Pedersen. Published by American Veterinary Publications (Goleta, CA), 1991. ISBN 0-939674-29-7  Only buy this if you can find it at a good price, $20.00 or less. I just (2010) picked this up and its companion book Feline Infectious Diseases for $20.00 on ebay.  Most of it is geared to a large scale breeding business and is a technical reference for Vets. Most of what would apply to a small hobby breeder like me can be found online or in the books above. This book is now available free online. http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/ccah/felinehusbandry.cfm
The WorldCat Libraries website is a wonderful tool for locating any book you are looking for at the library nearest to you. As an example I did a search for The Book of the Cat  and it gave me a list of town libraries near Worcester that have this book. It also tells me how many miles each library is from your entered zip code.
