The Abyssinian breed most certainly did not originate in America!

    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.

I have a Siamese and his name is Bleu. I luv him sooo much. He's nothing like normal cats. He fetches, walks on a leash, drinks from the toliet, sits outside my bathroom door until I'm done and has to be in the same room as me. It's crazy. He's my cat dog. He is very bad. His first Christmas gift was a cage at 9 wks. lol I wouldnt trade him for nothing. If I ever get another cat it has to be a Siamese.

My wife and I have a white, blue eyed angora that is the love of the house. She loves to be held and petted all the time. She gets along with all our other pets, good thing we have two other cats and two yorkies. But she is the baby of the place and also the queen. And to think someone put her out as a kitten, only thing we can think is they were not animal people. But we saved her and she has been the best pet we have ever had. Loves to be in the middle of everything.

We never had pet cats before until my daughter brought home a kitten. Since I never took care of a cat before, I resisted in having one in the house. But, it didn't take long for me to come around and see what the fuzz is all about; this kitten was so friendly, affectionate and playful! We watched him grew to a full size Coon, and weight almost 20 pounds. He was solid and can feel the strength of this gentle giant.

He loves hanging-out and be in the middle of our activities as a family. He sits there quietly, majestically, watching everybody with his mane shining. He loves smelling everyone's hair especially after shower. His favorite game is fetching a crumpled candy wrapper or a tin foil rolled like a little shiny ball and then he would kick it with his paws and chase it.

One morning when he was about 4 years old, he came to our bedroom door and started calling us with this tiny voice and as I opened the door, he ran towards the kitchen still meowing as if to say "pay attention to me" and as I got closer towards him; I noticed that he was sitting on the floor with something in front of him. As I looked closer, it was a mouse. It was Chino's gift to us. He was very proud that day and we were too!

Chino grew as an indoor cat, but, we let him out in the backyard when we're out there. He lived to the age of 9 years old and was still very active until his last few days.

Maine Coon Cat are great cats. He did act like a dog in terms of loyalty and they are so playful, even at 9 years old he was still acting like a kitten.

We miss our friend!

Hi, my name is Azin from Iran. I know English just a bit, but I want to say that we don't see Persian cats here especially in streets, when I saw pic of Persian cats in internet I surprised because they are rare in here, of course I saw Persian cat but once in a rich families and that time I don't know he is a Persian cat. He was white, corpulent and shaggy but he has a bad temper especially with other cats also when he was emasculated. I love Bengal and Burmese cats and I think you will surprise when I say that many of them are here, of course other breeding cats particularly in streets, they are very beautiful and clever but they are chicken – hearted, they are afraid of peoples and sound of cars. Many of them are vagrant and streetwalker, but they are very beautiful, don't blame us that we leave them in streets because I think it's a good reason to breed various types.
I've got a cat that is between orange and yellow with white belly she has got three kitties. I don't know who is their father, many male cats come here, only the boy is like his mother he's my favorite I know he like me mutually, one of the daughters is white with black and brown spot she doesn't like to communicate with me, and other is dark brown with black and bright brown spot and one of her eyes has a black spot like a pirate, she's kind and quiet, but I am worry about her because she is thin and weak. Now their eyes are amber.
Bye

    I have also come across persian cats who are ill-tempered and sort of nasty with people. I dont know how many people have experienced this.
