Mini QTpedia

In the future I intend to use the power of QTSaver to supply a free service that will use QT/search algorithm to retrieve only Wikipedia results.
It will be a short and condensed version of each Wikipedia article and it will save users time in case Wikipedia retrieve few links for the same query.
In the past I checked the feasibility of QTpedia But then I was using results from the Web that complemented Wikipedia and now I use only Wikipedia results – so it's a 180 degrees change in my attitude.
I hope that you readers will find the time to comment on the usability of this idea…


Results for Abyssinian cat - Abyssinian (cat)
The Abyssinian is a natural breed of domesticated cat believed to originate from one Egyptian female kitten called Zula that was taken from a port in Alexandria, Egypt, by a British soldier and brought to England where the breed was developed by being breed with an English tabby.It is believed all Abbys in Europe, America, and Australia are descended from Zula, but there has been at least one and possibly as many as three Abyssinians introduced from Libya (or less likely Egypt) into the existing Abyssinian gene pool in the USA.The Abyssinian has become one of the most popular shorthair breed of cats in the USA.There are said to be still wild Abyssinians in some parts of North Africa. - American Keuda
o The American Keuda (pronounced KEW-da) is a type of cat.The Keuda type is currently under development to become a standardized breed.The roots of the breed are from a 1980s study called the "Kitten Evaluation Under Direct Assessment" which was meant to determine the characteristics which led to superior barn cats in the Southwestern United States. Barn cats gathered from the study area (Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas) were bred with each other to develop the breed.
o Since the Egyptian Mau itself was redomesticated from feral Egyptian cat populations in the mid-1950s, it may represent a superior feral cat type, closely reproduced in the deserts of the American Southwest in the Keuda, but with no direct genetic connection to that breed.
o American Keuda cats share many physical similarities with the Mau, including body type and a belly flap, not seen in other breeds.Since the belly flap adaptation allows extra extension when running, and thus more speed, this would be a successful adaptation for any cat that needed speed, like a barn cat.Keudas also share a high level of intelligence and athleticism with the Mau, as well as speed and a love for warm conditions. One marked difference between the Keuda and the Mau is the wide diversity of appearance the Keuda displays.While some Keudas look strikingly like Maus, they may also look like a Siamese, Havana Brown, cats of other breeds or mixed breed cats. Keuda cats display a much wider variety of coat colors and patterns than do Maus. - Feral cat colony o Two breeds of cat have been developed recently from feral cat populations.The Egyptian Mau was developed from Egyptian feral cat colonies in the 1950s.The American Keuda is being still developed from barn cat colonies in the US Southwest from the 1980s.

o The African Golden Cat (Profelis aurata) is a medium-sized wild cat distributed over the rainforests of West and Central Africa.It is about 80 cm long, plus 30 cm tail.
o African Golden Cats are able to climb, but they primarily hunt on the ground.The prey includes rodents, birds and small monkeys. Due to its hidden living there is not much known about this cat.
o The African Golden Cat is similar to the Asiatic Golden Cat, but studies indicate that the reason is convergentЗлатна котка da:Afrikansk guldkat de:Afrikanische Goldkatze eo:Afrika ora kato fr:Chat doré africain nl:Afrikaanse goudkat pl:Kot złoty.

Search results for American Bobtail cat American Bobtail
o The American Bobtail is a relatively new and uncommon breed of cat most notable for its stubby "bobbed" tail about half the length of a normal cat's tail.This is the result of a genetic mutation affecting the tail development, similar to that of a Manx. The cat is not related to the Japanese Bobtail despite the similar name and physical type — the breeding programs are entirely unrelated and the gene causing the mutation is entirely different.

Results for American Curl cat - American Curl o The American Curl is a breed of cat with unusual ears.The ears curl back from the face in a smooth arc toward the center of the back of the skull; they are otherwise perfectly normal cats.The breed is the result of a spontaneous mutation which occurred in a cat in California in 1981.The first cat, a black female domestic cat, was found and taken in by the Ruga family who named her Shulamith.All American Curls descend from her, the foundation female.In 1983, the first American Curl was exhibited at a cat show, and in 1987, the longhair American Curl was given championship status by The International Cat Association (TICA).In 1993, the American Curl set a precedent in the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) by being the first breed to be admitted to the Championship Class as one breed with two coat lengths.The American Curl is a medium size cat with no health handicaps associated with the curled ears.They are strong, healthy cats remarkably free of genetic defects that affect many purebred cats. The American Curl may have either curled ears or straight ears.The American Curl may have three degrees of curl - first degree, second degree, or third degree.The third degree is the preferred one. The straight ear American Curl has all of the loving personality of the curled ear American Curl but may not be shown.The American Curl comes in two coat lengths - either long haired or short haired.The American Curl comes in all colors.
