Outline of Cat Anatomy, With Reference to the HumanBook - 2000
The cat has been used as a subject for dissection in the study of mammalian anatomy for almost two centuries. The very popular Pictorial Anatomy of the Cat, by Stephen Gilbert, originally published in 1968 and now in its twelfth printing, has been used in countless laboratories as a guide to dissection and supplement to introductory textbooks.
Pictorial Outline of Cat Anatomy is an abridged version of the original guide, modified for affordability and practical use in one-semester courses. It employs anatomical terms used in human rather than veterinary anatomy, and it includes illustrations of human anatomy that may be compared with those of the cat anatomy for the many students who do not have access to human dissections. Gilbert's drawings are remarkably fine. Their accuracy and clarity inspire confidence in the user's ability to identify and dissect.
