We have a Turkish Angora cat, about aged 14, whom we adopted from Humane Society when she was 7. Her fur was in terrible shape, and she was scrawny. Her people had moved and left her at Humane. We scissored the knots out of her fur and let her do her own thing in the condo. She hid under the bed for about a year, coming out at night to eat. Gradually, she has straightened out, fattened up. She is a beautiful cat, blue eyes, LOTS of fur - but very picky. She wants what she wants when and how she wants it, only eats dry food, and will howl for no reason in the day time. I came to this site after searching for 'Turkish Angora howling for no reason!'....it is a pathetic, periodic howl - one would think she was sick or stuck somewhere, but that is not the case. She loves water, and likes to be petted but only in certain places (her chest) and only at certain times (when I am in bed trying to read a book). She resists any grooming, but I have tricked her by using my fingernails instead of a comb. She likes to have secrets - she will go outside on the condo deck, but only if no one is looking...it has to be a secret. If she sees that we see, she runs back in. We have a dog and another cat (also a Humane adoption). Finally, after 7 years here, she begins to try to play with the dog, sniffing him and wanting his attention. By this time, of course, he is more or less indifferent. She will wake us up in middle of night wanting our hands to stroke her - lousy timing. She is fat, but can spring to counter heights. She loves drinking water from faucet. I think she would go swimming if we had a pool. Although she is skittish about many things, she will - inexplicably - suddenly become 'Miss Affability' when guests are here - guests who probably do not WANT white cat hair all over their clothes. Then she enters the living room as though the party is all about her, and parades around, presenting herself. Her name is 'Princess' - probably should be 'Empress'... She is an interesting and inconsistent combo of indifference, seeming fear, social avoidance, self-containment, assertiveness, social, anti-social, dietary mono-kibble. We have taken her boating in Canada - she loves the boat and the ocean. She fell in once, and just paddled around! If we let her, she would leave the boat at night and explore. She did get out once when we were moored at a dock. We were lying in bed, looked up at the skylight, and thought 'there is a cat outside on our deck that looks just like....Princess!' then 'It IS Princess'. We could see her footprints all over the dock and the boat. Her adventure had to be a secret. She had gone out the porthole opening above the kitchen stove. So this is NOT a cat that is fearful in fact. But she sometimes acts that way - one of a kind! but I think a lot of it is the temperament of the Turkish Angora!

    My TA does the same thing. My family and I will just be having a normal day, and he will sit in the middle of a random room and just howl, and howl, and howl..... He isn't hurt or sick or anything (like you said), he just does it for no reason! I have to admit though, it is kinda funny. XP

Most individuals with an animal have driven with them at least once. Very often, pet owners drive around without their animals belted in safely. Only about 17 percent of pet owners use them, however an unfastened animal can be as distracting as texting and driving.

I grew up with cats, but decided I didn't want them in my home because of the hair, scratching the furniture and the thought of a litter box. So, I told my now 17 year old daughter no for at least 2 years. BUT let me tell you....One year ago right now, she brought home this totally white kitten (he and his siblings had been left behind by someone moving away, he came to live with us, the others are on a farm, in a barn to keep mice at bay), litter box, toys and food in hand. At first I said no, you have to take it back, as she did. Two days later, she brought him back, and NOW, I have the ultimate love of my life, this gorgeous Angora cat with the softest blue eyes. We named him Q-tip. He adopted me as Mom, which he should have, as I am the caregiver, litter box cleaner, and buy all of his toys. When my girl goes to college in 2 years, she is somehow thinking she will take him with her, but she will be hit hard with reality when the day comes. He has many nick names, Mitters, Mit Mit, Mittens, Le Purr Le Furr...and on and on. We adore him, as does our Schnauzer. He thinks he is a dog, but you can only love a cat this much with this superb soft fur..He attacks our feet under the covers in bed. We just laugh and stroke him until he falls asleep with us. I am completely in love . I watched a short film of a cat someone had lost, the love of their life, needless to say, now I will take as many pictures of him as I can. There will never be another Q-tip. Wish you could meet him. If you are ever in S.W. Kansas, Come to a town called Hugoton, Mitter Mews and I will be right across from the hospital....On Jackson street.

The Abyssinian breed most certainly did not originate in America!

My beautiful boy Lyon is 12 years old. I came on here to see what the average age of a tonkinese might be and am so pleased that hopefully, I may have him around for a nice long time yet. He really has been the most wonderful boy, gentle, affectionate, funny everything you could ever want in a cat. When I went away recently to visit my daughter for 6 weeks, I left him with my parents who adore him, when I walked into the room where he was asleep in his basket, he heard my voice and immediately jumped out, said hello very loudly and came bounding straight to me....he had missed me, it was very obvious. He has always given way more than he has taken, I thank him every day for that.

I stumbled on a havana brown by accident. My white kitty passed on with carcenoma cancer. After a few months my daughter said she wanted to get me a cat for Christmas, I agreed. We went to the shelter and I fell in love with the noisiest cat there. He is black, but when you fluff his fur back it is deep chocolate. He has every trait of a Havana Brown, including his non socialness. He loves to have his belly rubbed and nudges my hand there for it. He jumps higher than any other cat I have known in my lifetime and that is quite a few. I have always had a cat. He is a bit of a scaredy cat though, he jumps at sudden movement. but he loves to play, He will carry his ball upstairs then toss it down and fetch it and do it again. He is the funniest little clown, and I cannot imagine my life without him now. Oh and for the record he was only noisy at the shelter, here he is very quiet only crying if his water of food dish is empty.. The shelter called him Mr.Ed (after the horse) we call him Lucky..

I love these cats and had them before I moved to Florida. I would like to get along fine but would they pose a threat to my peacocks, cranes, sugar gliders, and toucan? Any help is apppreciated.

    Yep, the Bengal is going to do what comes naturally and eat the gliders, chase the peacocks etc.  Some cats - no problem but the bengal just may want to play.  You are risking a problem as the cat is going to do what nature taught him and they haven't been really domesticated totally yet.  Besides you wold be scarig the others regardless of what the bengal might do.  Can you have cats around these critters - sure but depends on the cat (breed0 and disposition.  I have seen cats curl up with birds, deer even a monkey baby - but that just isn't all cats.
