I have a cat and was told by my vet that she looks like an abyssinian cat. I have been researching these cats and do see similarities. She has the ticking and rabbit like coat and is extremely soft. How can I find out for sure?

We live in a very rural area but have commuter traffic on our 2 lane road that runs behind our home. It also seems to be a location where many animals have been dumped over the years. My wife found a 5 week old kitten in our yard last Nov. The wife brought her in and put her down, when she spotted me she dashed across the kitchen ran up me and sat on my shoulder, I have been adopted. She is my constant companion when I'm home, eats what I eat, sleeps on or next to me every night, gets quite upset when I leave and meets me at the door when I return and plays fetch better than any dog I've had. Shes a keeper.

A beautiful tri colored cat came to my door for breakfast this morning and he stayed - doesn't seem to want to leave. He's litter box trained and very comfortable with me and my pomeranian dog. I've contacted our shelter and animal control to let them know where he is? If his people are looking for him? He's skinny and ate all Gizmo's blue buffalo grain free tiny bites. I'd love to keep this cat but need a good source of kitty info as I've never been owned by a cat before. The vet is coming to see him tomorrow to check his health and give him shots. He seems to be in good shape except for underweight and his back paws are very dirty.

I adopted a 5 yr old Turkish Angora. She is white with one blue and one gold eye. They say on here (the video) that they don't need much grooming, however, my Lilly sheds like crazy leaving the chair she claimed as her 'throne' white. Also I find balls of fur everywhere lol. Well I also have two black British Bombay cats and one Black and White long hair cat and they shed a lot less. Other than that, she is the best kitty ever. She licks you and hugs you and she loves to what I call 'Happy Paw' for confort. She def. took charge over the other cats as the Alpha cat. LOVE this breed, just wish the fur would stop flying. ahhahah!

    I have a bombay and he is the coolest little kitten. My daughters talked me into him after years of hating cats and never wanting one, I have to say I am glad we adopted him. I have READ that the Angora breed does not get its full coat till around 2 years old which might be when it stops shedding so bad. I also read that they will shed a lot more in hotter climates. If that helps I don't know.

I have 2 adult male cats - brothers about 2 1/2 years old. When they were kittens, they got along, but now they have stare-down contests which often lead to fighting. I'd think they were playing, but fur literally flies and one or both end up scratched. I'm afraid they will hurt each other badly. Is there any way to bring peace back to the household. We try to keep them apart space is limited.

I have a beautiful young female Russian Blue that bred with a grey Tabby. Her Kittens are beautiful and are reversed tabbies , silver blue light grey and are reversed tabbies with whithe stripes instead of black or dark stripes. The girls are gorgeous, with all the features of her HER. ONE HAS THE HEAD AND EARS AND SLIM BODY BUT NOT THE PINCH SMILE. THE OTHER HAS THE PINCH SMILE BUT IS TAKING AFTER THE FATHER WITH A ROUNDER HEAD AND STALKIER BODY BUT THE FACE FEATURES AND EVEN THE SOUNDS THEY MAKE WHEN THEY MIAO ARE SPECIFICALY RUSSIAN BLUE. VERY VOCAL LIKE THEIR MOTHER. DO I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL. CAN THEY BE RECOGNIZED AS SUCH . TO ME THEY ARE AND JUST THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE REVERSETABBIE MARKINGS MAKES THEM VERY DISTINGTIVE. CAN THEY BE SHOWN ANYWHERE. DOES ANY BODY KNOW OR EVEN SOLD AS UNIQUE AS THEY ARE_

    In order to show a cat, the cat has to be a recognized breed by the ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association) or the TICA (The International Cat Association).  You would obviously have to be able too reproduce the kittens you have, have the markings, coloring, size etc stablaized to allow rules for points to be established.  This is a complicated and long term endeavor but you can write either organization and ask them and if interested, how you would go about it.

    Ms.Gesia Rosenberg, I know this is quite a few years late. But would you have pictures of your 'babies'? Did you sell any kittens? If so, may I ask:How much? And where are you? I'm in VA. 56 years old, been disabled since I was in car crash at 25. I would be interested in some (2?) of your kittens if you ever have more, and the price is right. (I have very little $,but a LOT of love.) Have 2 dogs, but they are 'daddies babies'! I love them, too, just not the same. Thank-you in advance, Kris Behrens

I have a 4 year old Silver shaded persian male cat and a 9 mth. old chocolate point Himalayan female, they are both fixed. My Persian is beautiful but very slim and I have tried everything to add weight to his slim build. If there are any suggestions, I am open to any. He is a little over 7 pounds. My Himalayan is big, at least 9 or 10 pounds already, and very active, she is very smart and affectionate, loves to play, but my persian doesn't like her. What am I to do, I want them to be company for each other and I love them both. They are a lot of work as they require daily brushing, which I don't mind doing. Just want my Persian to get a little heavier. Cats in Canada.

    Build a really big cage and line it with plastic.

    Keep the cat in the bathroom with the door closed along with a litter box. Make sure there is no clothing, or carpet for it to urinate on, it should start using the litter box while being confined to the room. *Once the cat gets used to using the litter box you can now put the litter box in an area where you would prefer it to be. Then show the cat where it's new location is by putting the cat in the box. If the cat still urinates in an area other than the box in the new location. Then... Repeat step 1. You just need to work with this confinement method until it clicks with the cat as to where it should be urinating. Lastly, you must know that once a cat urinates on something you almost always need to throw it out or replace it. Otherwise the cat will smell it and repeat the behavior again.

    Residual odors from 'accidents' prompt pets to reuse those areas for that purpose. I use white grain-based vinegar to *NEUTRALIZE* residual odors with. On a tile floor, I would mop it on & dry it off after a few minutes. On carpeting, I would spray it good, and *after* allowing it to set for a few minutes, try to dry it with an absorbant, non-lint cloth. Cleaning does NOT neutralize odors! Residual scent left from urination &/or defecation *MUST* be neutralized away, after cleaning the area as thoroughly as possible, first.

I have 2 right now I took in because if I didn't take them they would have given them to a farm and they were too little to survive winter outside. They're brother and sister born in August of 09 they love to cuddle and sit on your lap. One time I woke up and Miyu was in my arms like a teddy bear. I just weighed my cats and I was shocked Buzz is almost 3 pounds bigger than his sister she's about 6 and he's about 9 pounds, she's so skinny her legs look so twiggy compared to his muscular build. (This is my first female cat and my family seems to think its because females are supposed to be smaller than males. Also they are both fixed and males tend to weigh more if you're not careful after they're fixed.) Miyu thinks she's a princess and when you correct her for doing something she knows not to do she tilts her head and looks at you with this expression that says "Who me? No! This is the face of an angel!" and she will rub against you so you get your guard down and then she goes right back to doing what you stopped her from doing.
