Guides are provided for those who wish to enrich their reading experiences further, or who would like to learn more about the Feles, Jinimaru and other creatures found in these stories for their own projects. Guides are considered factual reading, and are only recommended to those who enjoy that style of writing. Guides take longer to produce than other books and can go through multiple revisions.
Guides contain all information in one book, whether it touches the basics or goes into complete detail depends on if the volume is intended for Beginners or for Veterans.

Future guides are revisions of the originals, dubbed Jinimaru for Veterans and The Edris Compendium: Cosplay Edition, intended for those who want a more detailed and text-heavy book. The Veterans Editions do not require the reader to have knowledge from the Beginners Editions as it includes the information from the beginners guides,though they can be a bit on the daunting side with their longer subject coverage and advanced terminology. As such Beginners Editions are intended for those who want to learn more about these feline worlds but in more manageable bite-sized chunks. Books labelled as Cosplay Editions are identical to the Beginners Edition only with a cover that is better suited to be used as part of a costume.
