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.

    Sorry if i am eaves dropping but have you check her teeth/gums in case of abcess?  If she won't chew - possibly a bad tooth of infection or abcess.

    Not terribly unusual but they aren't real cooperative with hearing tests.  OK - when he is napping just sneak on over and clap your hands.  Come up behind him and clap.  Throw car keys against the wall when he is close by.  You want to see if he follows the sound.

Jessica,

I have a Turkish Angora too. I have had no problems with him and litter boxes, but I have recently brought in two feral cats who did have problems that way, which briefly caused the Angora to become inconsistent and start peeing about the place too. Someone suggested I get a pheromone 'cat calming' diffuser. Feli-way from the vet, or Nutri-vet Pet Ease (for cats, there is a dog version too) from a pet shop.(Cheaper than the Feli-way.) Also comes in a spray. I was sceptical, but this did work. I used the Nurti-vet. All of the cats stopped inappropriate peeing within 24 hours.

Your Angora is likely traumatized due to his background so 'scent marking' your room, to make sure it is claimed as his own. Hope this soon stops. Keep reassuring him and showing him to box. I am sure it will soon stop. The spray and diffusers do work.

    Turkish Angoras can be free to upwards of $800.  The higher prices is based on show quality of the Turkish and its awards.

My 6 yo white turkish angoian died 10/16 and I have been heart broken ever since. I got him when he was 5 weeks old and spoiled him to no end. I bathed him brushed him slept with him, played in the yard with him while he was on his leash. He loved going out on his leash and would get it for me. He loved the snow and would sit and watch the rain outside his favorite window. I truly miss him. I was surprised to read of how many are deaf. Amadeus (aka Buttons/Gato Loco) was definitely not deaf and would appear from where ever if he was called. If anyone knows of a kitten available please feel free to contact me.

    Jacquie, I wanted to express my condolences on the loss of your Angora. I too had a Turkish Angora as white as a newly fallen snow. He had one amber and one blue eye. His name was Cutimus Maximus because he was cute to the max! Oddly enough he too died in the early morning hours of October 16th, 2011. I found his body in one of his favorite resting spots. My heart is broken over his passing just as yours is over Amadeus. I wanted to let you know there is a heart defect that can cause sudden death in Angoras between the ages of 2 and 6 that is what I suspect took my Maximus. I hope you find a new companion even if it is not a Turkish Angora. - Karen

    I am so sorry! I know how it feels to lose a pet. I was so heartbroken when my 7 month old cat managed to get outside and he got hit by a car.

From the comments listed already I've come to the conclusion that my kitty is indeed a Maine Coon. She's fiesty, 15 years old now and still plays :) she has a snowy white tummy and a gorgeous block calcio pattern on her back. I was wondering, about how long does this breed live? I've had her since I was 2 and I know she is old and that I need to prepare my self for her death. But she is still quite healthy, I look forward to any answers!

    They say on an average the maine Coon will live between 12 and 15 years but many have healthy lives longer than that.  Enjoy.
