We (me and my wife) have 2 lovely van cats > Pepper (Black & White) and Ginger (Amber & White). They perfectly depict above behaviours and are the most loving among our other cats (mostly European Baroudeurs). Ginger has tendency to meow a lot. We wonder why?

    I guess some cats are just more vocal, though I think this is unusual for a Van Cat. We have a siamese mix, and she gets very vocal, but our other cat, more of a Somali though also a mix, has a soft mew and and is very quiet.
  • Az & Hanna - 2012-01-20
    Hi Clarice,
    Thanks for replying. Pepper is very silent but Ginger been talkative a lot. Anything he needs he starts to meow - for food, for play, for attention, just anything. He also vomitted couple of days back. We're bringing him to the vet during the week end!
  • Clarice Brough - 2012-01-21
    Good luck with your cat. Just an aside, my siamese gets hairballs pretty regularly, and so she vomits.
  • Editor's Note - 2012-01-21
    I agree with Clarice, we have a small 8 pound 'mute' cat.... well Shmoopie does meow, but so daintily, then we have a 15 pound RagDoll, Meeko, that howls like a wolf (picked that up from the neighbors wolf/hybrid) then he is bored and wants to be played with! So we play with him for about a 1/2 hour and he quiets up and goes to sleep! lol

    So very sorry to hear of the death of your beloved cat.

    Anonymous and Renata: So sorry you lost your friends, but may I urge you and every cat owner to please, please keep them indoors for life so your losses are not repeated. I have had cats all my life and kept all indoors only. Eventually one loses them to illness or old age, but they live safer and longer lives indoors. Please, fellow kitty-lovers, keep them alive and inside!
    Adopted a 4-month old Russian Blue, had him altered at 6 months yesterday. He is a riotous little scoundrel, playful in the extreme, hugely affectionate, and chronic purr-er, chow-hound, and rock-and-rolling wrestler with my 3-year old Tonkinese. Sleeps on our bed, cuddling and chasing toes. Has demolished a number of glass and pottery items thus far, zooming and leaping around with his buddy. Has a Siamese head, those little mauve toes, quite small and will probably remain small-ish. We named him Boris, but call him BB (Boris the Brat), and he is just a total delight and a wonderful example of his breed.

Domestic short hairs make an excellent pet. Kittens can be weaned as early as 6 weeks and typically are. Outdoor lifestyles are not safe and lead to many health risks. Diets should be quality food like Nutro or Mother Hubbar (not Friskies or pet store 'junk'), and there is no point in paying hundreds of dollars when these beautiful cats are in shelters for free needing good homes!

    Actually, they should be weaned at 8-12 weeks. The outdoors are great for them so that they can exercise and hunt. And there is nothing wrong with Friskies! But I agree that you do NOT need to pay hundreds of dollars for them!
  • Margo Command - 2012-12-31
    Actually (oh my tao! I googled Friskies and I stopped reading half way through the ingredients in their dry food because I couldn't find ANY meat!) Friskies is one of the worst cat foods around! Cats are MEAT eaters! They should never eat wheat or gluten or anything like that! PEOPLE shouldn't eat that stuff and we can cook! Imagine feeding that *%##$@!, <-- no real word, to an animal that naturally ONLY knows hunting and meat eating! corn gluten?? meat BY-products?? There are no good brands of food in your basic large grocery chain unless perhaps Blue and I'm not sure THAT is such good food. I buy all protein food for my Sammy (tabby long hair) and my Missy (Tuxedo american shorthair built like a polar bear! Her paws are 3 of my fingers wide and she will be going on a diet. She is 15.9 - 16.0 lbs, 1-3 pounds overweight! It's only a problem becuause she loves to sleep on my face while I rub her belly. Oh, yes, and her health! Her real name is Penelope but she was my little miss (now she is my big miss, LOL) so I call her Missy. She answers to both. Actually she hears two words, FOOD and NO! so she is probably answering to 'Food!,' when I call her name. They sound so much alike! Fortunately she does do 'No!' She is a good girl!

I adopted a siamese cat almost three years ago and I love the little bugger <3 She's spoiled rotten, of course, because I can't refuse her anything. I feed her soft food, I brush her, I wash her to keep down her dander (my stepfamily is allergic to it) and she has two toys to date (I've only recently gotten a job to be able to buy her toys). She loves attention from my family and guests, and when the light goes off at bedtime, she's always curled up right against me. I couldn't ask for a more loving companion, and I'd do anything for my little baby. Being the runt of the litter, she's still very small and probably always will be, but I am trying to fatten her up a little with frequent feedings because all too often people comment about how slim she is.

I recently lost my beloved Maine Coon Baron Munchmausen to rainbowsbridge - he was only 3 1/2years old but in that short time he lived the life of 40 cats. He had a massive personality and made an big impression on everyone he met. He was my puppycat- he'd follow me on walks and scuff around a bit whilst I walked ahead and run to me at full pelt just like a dog when I called him, his magnificent fur blowing in the wind and his big tail sweeping. He would follow me to my neighbours house to try and steal her cats food and would follow me round the house if he was not allowed inside and stand up and paw each window and mew. - He didnt chirp but he had a tiny high pitched mioaw which was far too small for him. He once got on the same neighbours conservatory roof during a residents meeting and ran up and down like thunder before settling just above my head until the end of the meeting. He disappeared into the christmas tree last year and eventually out flew a bird - and he managed to carry a baby rabbit though the cat flap up a spiral staircase and put it into his bed at easter!! It was unharmed. Mice and Voles were not so fortunate -he was an expert hunter with his massive paws. He could turn the taps on the kitchen sink and loved to drink water from running taps lapping it until it went up his nose and he sneezed. He would sit on a big red blanket and let me pull him round the floor like a sledge and he'd wake me up in the morning at 7 am on the dot with rough kisses. I could never have anything other than a Maine Coon now, but filling his boots will be a hard task.

Is there another breed of cat with the title of Russian besides the Russian Blue? This breed is a little longer haired and has a double coat.

We got Chase 8 years ago from the ASPCA. He was just a tyke and running around with his friend and so we planned to take both, but couldn't :( Well, we got Chase home and he immediately got us wondering why we hadn't gotten a cat sooner. At the time we had a mouse problem and Chase earned his name because he snatched them up, brought them to us, which ALWAYS scared me to death, but he was always so proud! Needless to say, the Misee problem cleared up quick-fast! After a few months a friends cat had kittens- so in order for Chase to have company, we got Little, a female tabby. Chase was amazing with her. He accepted her immediately and whenever w couldn't find her, we asked Chase and he always led us to her. In July I got a daschund puppy for my daughter birthday. Chase once again showed he's a hospitable guy and welcomed her. She has since grown and has tried to prove her dominance as a dog, but Chase remains the true alpha male. Its the cutest thing, because Mocha is much smaller than Chase (she's a mini), she does a barking dance around him while he just sits. When he gets up, she runs sooooo fast. Chase has been the most loving, personable, beautiful cat. I can't imagine ever being without him. Yes, he's finicky-he refuses to eat hard food, but he's worth all the fancy feast in the world. He loves to be petted and told how beautiful he is, and he is! I massage his lush mane and tell him that he's my 'big handsome'and he loves that. People love to come see him and take pictures because he's so big and good-looking, easily the 'prettiest boy' they've ever seen. When he talks to me its with the teeniest voice, yet I love to hear that, as well as his big bear snore while sleeping. I know this is long, but as I type from my bed, Mocha is sleeping to my right, and my Big Handsome is sleeping on my left. I can't tell you just how much Chase is loved by the entire family.

I've never really had pets in my life, until my family decided to adopt a tabby/siamese. I thought she was great, until I met my baby Santana! She was less than a year old when I adopted her from the shelter. She was rather shy and wouldn't acknowledge me, until I got her home. She's the prettiest gal I've ever seen. She's been very patient with me, starting my first semester in college, and moving out into an apartment. She used to go outside a lot, but as soon as I brought her to our new place, she knew she owned it (even though I don't quite trust her when it comes to the 3rd story windows). She wakes me up every morning with kisses,and crawls on my chest before bed or when I'm on the couch. When she gets fiesty she bites and claws at my hand for a brief period, then decides to wrap her paws around it and cuddle to sleep. She waits at doors for me to, and has the cutest chirp. At this point in my life, I can never see myself having any cat besides one of these big lovebugs.

    We currently have 5 cats that we love and will take care of for the rest of their life... A year ago however, cat number 6 passed away. He was a Maine Coon named China. He was the most beautiful tabby coon cat in the world! He was Adopted from a Maine Coon rescue group/shelter. He ended up saving our children on several different occasions from scorpion bites, he found them, killed them and then he would alert us of their location. p.s. we live in Arizona. #RIPChina This post is in memory of China Doll our Big Coon daddy. We Love You Bear!
