    Easy way to get started is just look up on the Internet Serval Cat breeders - Serval Cats for sale. There is a magazine on CATS called Cat Fancy and they have a list of breeders in the back in the classifieds. You can start by calling breeders in your area - most breeders know where you can purchase a particular breed of cat and that way you have a recommendeation. Cat shows.

    I don't even think they should take 'Servals' out from the wild! It's just mean!
  • Kali - 2012-06-26
    Yeah but it would be cool to have one.

We have two Devon boys both brothers, but so different in their natures. One loves to be with you in the toilet, cooking, washing and in your bed. The other brother wants to be outside all the time and cries till you let him out. Which could be 2am or 4am!!! They love to talk to you. My children think it is funny. They expect their food to be there in the morning when they get up, if it's not there they will come looking for you to ask why it's not there for them. Then they jump at you to make you get their food. They are fussy eaters only like tuna. One loves raw meat and the other cooked meat. It's funny they are like chalk and cheese. The one boy loves to get into our bed and sleep under the quilt, the other cat loves to be with my 11 yr old daughter he just loves her(that's the one who likes to be outside) they sleep together, he has his head on her pillow and his body under the quilt. The one who loves to be inside loves to give you love bites on your hand or cheek and gives us smooches at 2am!!! There is so much I could write about them, great family cat if you have kids, we have 4 so they get lots of attention.

I have two Scottish Folds who are brothers. They are both neutered. One of them has the folded-ear gene (Milan), and the other has normal ears (Lenny). They are extremely sweet and playful. Lenny is a lot more "hyper" and active than Milan. Sometimes Lenny bullies Milan, which makes me sad, but for the most part they get along well. They will play together and take naps together. Getting two littermates was the best decision I have ever made because they keep each other company while I'm at work. They are both pretty needy and require a lot of affection and time with their human. My only problem is that Milan has the stiff back as a result of faulty breeding. I bought them from a breeder who was a retired veterinarian, but I guess that doesn't guarantee quality breeding stock. They cost A LOT of money, but they are the sweetest guys ever. I highly recommend the Scottish Fold breed.

    It doesn't matter how much they cost , they're worth it!

    I'm thinking about getting myself a fold quite soon. I was just wondering why do you say they cost a lot of money.
  • linda - 2012-05-21
    there are sadly some people that dont take breeding seriously, and a breed like scottish fold are only for people who realy care for their health, only using the healthiest cats in mating and NEVER uses fold on fold. here in norway there are about 16- 17 scottish folds in the country and all are very healthy:) and they will stay that way as long as we plan the mating carefully , and uses the best lines:) you should never buy a fold to a low price that is under the normal price, that can mean the kitten has bad lines. my breeding kitten from germany cost me 1200 euros pluss some money for the flight ticket. but l got 200 euroes diskount, because we were two from same country who wanted to buy;)

I have a Siamese and his name is Bleu. I luv him sooo much. He's nothing like normal cats. He fetches, walks on a leash, drinks from the toliet, sits outside my bathroom door until I'm done and has to be in the same room as me. It's crazy. He's my cat dog. He is very bad. His first Christmas gift was a cage at 9 wks. lol I wouldnt trade him for nothing. If I ever get another cat it has to be a Siamese.

My wife and I have a white, blue eyed angora that is the love of the house. She loves to be held and petted all the time. She gets along with all our other pets, good thing we have two other cats and two yorkies. But she is the baby of the place and also the queen. And to think someone put her out as a kitten, only thing we can think is they were not animal people. But we saved her and she has been the best pet we have ever had. Loves to be in the middle of everything.

I have an "accidental" brown kitten - in extremely poor condition when he strolled into my back yard, having made a tunnel under the fence. His eyes were horribly infected and he was very malnourished. He weighed a pound and a half and he lost weight to 11 ounces at first. Both situations have changed dramatically. I can only think he is the product of a feral black female cat and a large Siamese chocolate-point cat who roams the neighborhood. He is not registered but he is a beautiful, beautiful animal. I feel fortunate that he sought me out. He needed help and as the veterinarian said, he knew where to go to get it. One other of the kittens was fortunate enough to find a home down the street but I think someone found the rest of the litter dead. I can barely stand to think about it.

We just rescued a little baby kitten(whom we named Lucy, after the Beatles song) from a person I know that was neglecting and abusive toward her. When my husband brought her in. Wrapped in his shirt. She was covered in her own excrement and both eyes were pussing and matted shut. Her mouth covered with dried old food and a gross slimy film on her little feet. I immediately bathed her while crying and got her eyes open and all the horrible neglect off of her little face and feet. She was skin and bones. I still cant understand how someone could do this to such a helpless life. She is a beautiful kitten. Affectionate, playful, not really affected by the neglect. She sleeps on both my husband and my chest all the time. At least 5 weeks old at the moment. I had to help keep her eye from getting further infected and since we got her almost 4 days ago she has thankfully gained weight and seems very happy with us. She was so hungry when we got her she tried to bite my finger off. She took the bottle at first with the Vitamin formula for kittens and ate up the soft wet kitten food we got her, vigorously. Like she hadn't eaten in days. Plus her eye is completely open again and no more infection. She is completely healthy. And growing since. I noticed she has these darker tiger stripes to her. But her coat looks a very very dark brown almost black, until the light hits her and it turns this chocolate brown color.
Her front legs are a bit awkward. They have an almost outer stance to her knees. But she walks perfectly. I don't think anything is wrong with her legs its just how she is built. They do remind me of the legs of a Siamese. Her ears are very large for any other kitten I have rescued/had. I was looking through breeds and came across pictures of Havana browns. And they matched her perfectly. Now I don't know what her mom & dad looked like but her nose is tiny and her eyes are green. Could she be this breed? I also have a Maine Coon and a beautiful Calico.
My Calico female is not too happy with our new addition She has been hiding upstairs and occasionally comes down to eat and use her potty. But the minute she sees the baby kitten she hisses and bolts back upstairs. I don't know how long this behavior will last but I really don't like her avoiding us as well. She swung at me today for the first time and I know she is frustrated. But she isn't normally like this. I love her bunches and don't want to make her feel like she is second best. Cause she is my baby just like the others.
Does anyone know what I can do to stop my Female Calico from hissing and avoiding her? She just doesn't seem to be okay with her presence at all. But I make sure she gets plenty of love from me.
I think she may be jealous. Would it be positive for my Female Calico, if I gave her a toy? And also including the new baby? My Male (Neutered) Maine Coon has hissed at her a couple of times. But doesn't at all act jealous of her.
I was thinking, if it was a good idea to go ahead and buy them all toys and show my love? Could that break the tension? I don't expect them to be immediately used to her. It will always take time. But my Calico is worrying me.
I dont want her to attack Lucy. I just need a little help on what to do to soften the environment with all of them. Lucy is curious about them. But since they have been hissing at her. She doesn't want to go near them much.

Thanks to anyone who can help

    Have your cats adjusted to each other yet? I had one that after 6 months was still very agitated and not accepting the kitten. The vet put her on a very small dose of Prozac daily. It helped tremendously. After a month or so I took her off of the medication, but her attitude continued to be much better. It has been a year now and while they are not "buddies", she tolerates the younger cat.

I accidentally have become the owner of an ocicat. The home she was in had two other cats, one that had lived there for years. My cat as a kitten already started to insist on being the dominant cat. The other cats didn't fancy her much so I took her in. She's amazing .... Very talkative, very playful (loves to fetch), and loves any guest we bring by. I feel blessed to have taken her in.

    Ocicats are neat and extremely smart.
