I own a serval, and the only negative comments I can make is that she is way smarter than my husband, and her farts could knock a buzzard off a poop wagon. She is very loving, social, and gets along well with everyone, including people, children, and other pets.

    How did you come about owning one of these animals?
  • fred - 2010-03-30
    Hi Cindy:

    How old is your serval? Does your serval spray inside the house and how are her litter box habits? I am trying to find out if a serval would make a good pet to travel with me. I am also thinking of getting a caracal, if they would make a more suitable traveling companion.

    Where can I buy a serval?
  • jeff - 2010-10-16
    I also own a serval he is a love bug plays well with our 18 month old daughter and other cats. Great pet if you have the time.
  • Madison - 2011-01-23
    Where did you get your serval? I have been searching for what seems like forever but still no luck. Give me the website/email if possible.

    Is this the only type of cat that gets that big? My daughter loves cats course she is only two but my in law said the other day that they have big cats that can get as big as a dog but she couldn't remember the name. So that is my question as far as are their different types and also where do you search for one so you have to go through an exotic country for them or are they here in the states? Thanks for taking your time to read my comment and she is beautiful love the print on her:)

    I got my first Natural Mink Tonkinese, Cheesecake in 1985 -he was bred from a Sable Burmese mother and a Seal Point Siamese father - Cheesecake was 17 years old when he got lympho sarcoma-cancer - it broke our hearts but we had already fallen in love with Tonks - we also had Sasafrass Marie at the same time - she was a Seal Point Siamese girl that lived until she was 19 years old - we lost her to heart and kidney failure. Again ours hearts broke. We now have two Tonks - Charlie is a Champagne Mink 8 year old sweetest kitty boy with the kindest heart and soul we have ever known. Oliver is a Blue Point 3 year old very active and loving kitty boy. Both are very athletic and extremely smart and always polite to everyone including the vets. We wouldn't be without our kitties whether they be Siamese or Tonkinese - you just can't beat them!

    We have a blue point Tonkinese called Oscar, he is only 9 months old and is the best cat we have ever had. He is so affectionate and loves lots of cuddles. At night we carry him up like a baby and he settles into sleep with my children taking it in turns which one he will sleep with and there he stays until the morning. When he is hungry he is very vocal and he does eat alot ! He is just so adorable.
  • Stan Scheider - 2011-06-19
    I am a resident of Somerset West, Cape Town, South Africa and live with two female Tonks and a wife, affectionately known as "the three blonde bitches", who are all amazingly adorable. The older Tonk, Lulu (Talulah) a solid lilac is 6 years old, a bit skittish and shy, who loves as much human attention as she can get. She grew up with a Bengal, who has since passed on due to kidney failure, and both grew up in our garden where they learnt to climb the highest trees, catch birds, guinea fowl, moles, rats, mice, chameleon's and any other insect that moved. The only problem is that their catches were brought into the house either as gifts or to be ripped apart which eventually required many carpets to be replaced. The younger s a 2 year old caramel named Kapri, full of mischief, gets constantly locked into a wardrobe or cupboard and is the most affectionate animal we have ever owned. I've never seen her climb a tree nor catch prey, and basically spends her time indoors unless we are outside. She's also the official greeter to any visitor and in fact friends often come to visit and cuddle her. Thankfully we have king size bed so there is space under the duvet for all of us at night especially during the cold winter months. If you haven't owned a Tonkinese you haven't lived with a cat yet!

Hi. Some years ago my mother found Turkish Angora in park bushes. The cat was bad in shape and it turned out that he's deaf. Some say that deafness affects mostly cats with blue eyes or mixed eye colours. This cat however has green eyes, so I wonder if it's the white coat among many other things in DNA which is the cause? Since we had other two cats at home, it was adopted by Pershian university students. To bad as it is one of the best looking cats we had at home. Faniest of all my ex-girlfriend being from western Iran and speaking also Turkish would propably love this cat - just one of life coincidents or mysteries.

Devon Rex Owner in MN - 2011-05-13
I have had my Devon Rex for 3 years now. "Dex" is the best. A fun, loving, outgoing, curious kitty. (Plus, I never have to use a lint brush.) He is always by my side, whether cooking, watching tv and/or sleeping (a huge snuggler). He loves to play. If I'm not playing with him, he will follow me around hitting my ankles with his paws. The Devon is a funny...yet very smart cat. The breed comes with a price tag, but it's worth it.

My daughter has a Scottish Fold that she just rescued. Its coat is so thick that none of our cat grooming tools seem to penetrate it. What type of brush or comb would you suggest? Thanks.

  • Charlie Roche - 2011-04-25
    Just a thought. I had a Balinese with the same problem. None of the cat/dog brushes would go through the coat. I finally just bought a regular womans hairbrush with the rounded tip edges. That worked for me. Good luck. If you find something let us know.
  • Sandra Musser - 2011-04-30
    Thanks so very much! Even our vet, who said that this one is his first Scottish Fold had no clue for us. So we will try your recommendation and I thank you so very much for it!!! Sandy

I lost my very friendly cat Fletcher with name tag and all to an "evil" man (a tenant), who stole him and maybe killed him. Thank God that man is gone now. I was very afraid to get another pet, as I am very protective of them - that's why I don't have dogs anymore (my first love) - because of tenants downstairs. But I visited my local animal shelter and cried over my missing cat. Then a woman directed me to this little shiny grey quiet cat, who turned out to be the best behaved cat ever! She does not go to strangers, she does not eat scraps nor eat from your plate nor interfere with the garbage - she will drink your water though, she does not go where I don't- she has never yet ventured into any of the other apartments open doors or windows even if she is bribed. She loves to stay inside even though she is free to go out. She communicates with me in sound - she calls to find out where I am in the apartment. She is very serious about being fed to her leisure. Once I'm home, she stays close to where I am approx. 80% of the time. And if I'm out, she stays inside approx. 95% of the time. If I'm out she waits until I come home to go outside to hunt and do her 'business'. The point is, she's safe from dangerous people. And for this I am so grateful. When I get up in the morning she walks beside me and guides me to her bowl to feed her first. You can't help but develop a very close and instinctive bond with this cat. She helped me in dealing with the grief of losing my previous cat. I was afraid of the man, but I am not afraid anymore. God gave me victory over him - I smile and wave hello whenever I see him - he is so confused when I do that. But you see because he killed my cat (which belongs to God) for whatever reason, I now know what a dangerous person he was. He broke my water line on purpose during the early hours of the morning then called me @2:30am then again @3:30am to come downstairs - the plumber confirmed it was tampered with (twice). So while I still grieve for my cat Fletcher I am grateful to have overcome this dangerous threat to my life in the likes of this man- because I lived alone at the time. But now peace has come and my new lovely cat Smokey is my new room-mate - she has her own identity/ demands privacy, etc. In fact, she's a lot like me!

    What a lovely story :) I am so glad you found peace and happiness with this new cat that the Lord gave you. However the man in this story sounds VERY scary (oh my goodness!) - praise God he's gone too! I'm not sure I could wave to someone that sounds so evil. Good for you and I wish you well. May the peace of the Lord be with you always.

    My little girl, Bella is a rescue cat, who also consoled me after I lost my beloved blue Oriental, Nicholas, to kidney disease at age 12. Her nature seems much like your cat's although I have to monitor her food intake as she is very fond of her food. Lorraine, Qld, Australia.
