My little Whitey passed away today at only 11 years old. No symptoms over a long period except for an aversion to his normal deli cat. I switched to fancy feast and he became ecstatic for about a couple weeks, then stopped eating that. He laid down and stared at his dish for half a day. Wobbly gait. When I tried to wake him today, he coughed and weased and tried to move, but by the time we got to the vet his heart was beating but he wasn't breathing. Just an occassional cough. I hope he passed away in no pain. I loved my boy. I got him 3 months before meeting my current wife. We are sick.

    I am so sorry. I had my kitten for 17 years and I still miss her.

    I cried when I read your story. I have cats too and have lost some in the past due to old age and illness. Please take comfort in knowing that your little "Whitey" knew how much he was loved and was adored by you both. What a lucky kitty to have such a loving home and such devoted owners. When it was time, you gave him the gift of a peaceful end. I am sure he did not suffer knowing that you were right there with him.

Hi. Some years ago my mother found Turkish Angora in park bushes. The cat was bad in shape and it turned out that he's deaf. Some say that deafness affects mostly cats with blue eyes or mixed eye colours. This cat however has green eyes, so I wonder if it's the white coat among many other things in DNA which is the cause? Since we had other two cats at home, it was adopted by Pershian university students. To bad as it is one of the best looking cats we had at home. Faniest of all my ex-girlfriend being from western Iran and speaking also Turkish would propably love this cat - just one of life coincidents or mysteries.

I lost my very friendly cat Fletcher with name tag and all to an "evil" man (a tenant), who stole him and maybe killed him. Thank God that man is gone now. I was very afraid to get another pet, as I am very protective of them - that's why I don't have dogs anymore (my first love) - because of tenants downstairs. But I visited my local animal shelter and cried over my missing cat. Then a woman directed me to this little shiny grey quiet cat, who turned out to be the best behaved cat ever! She does not go to strangers, she does not eat scraps nor eat from your plate nor interfere with the garbage - she will drink your water though, she does not go where I don't- she has never yet ventured into any of the other apartments open doors or windows even if she is bribed. She loves to stay inside even though she is free to go out. She communicates with me in sound - she calls to find out where I am in the apartment. She is very serious about being fed to her leisure. Once I'm home, she stays close to where I am approx. 80% of the time. And if I'm out, she stays inside approx. 95% of the time. If I'm out she waits until I come home to go outside to hunt and do her 'business'. The point is, she's safe from dangerous people. And for this I am so grateful. When I get up in the morning she walks beside me and guides me to her bowl to feed her first. You can't help but develop a very close and instinctive bond with this cat. She helped me in dealing with the grief of losing my previous cat. I was afraid of the man, but I am not afraid anymore. God gave me victory over him - I smile and wave hello whenever I see him - he is so confused when I do that. But you see because he killed my cat (which belongs to God) for whatever reason, I now know what a dangerous person he was. He broke my water line on purpose during the early hours of the morning then called me @2:30am then again @3:30am to come downstairs - the plumber confirmed it was tampered with (twice). So while I still grieve for my cat Fletcher I am grateful to have overcome this dangerous threat to my life in the likes of this man- because I lived alone at the time. But now peace has come and my new lovely cat Smokey is my new room-mate - she has her own identity/ demands privacy, etc. In fact, she's a lot like me!

    What a lovely story :) I am so glad you found peace and happiness with this new cat that the Lord gave you. However the man in this story sounds VERY scary (oh my goodness!) - praise God he's gone too! I'm not sure I could wave to someone that sounds so evil. Good for you and I wish you well. May the peace of the Lord be with you always.

    My little girl, Bella is a rescue cat, who also consoled me after I lost my beloved blue Oriental, Nicholas, to kidney disease at age 12. Her nature seems much like your cat's although I have to monitor her food intake as she is very fond of her food. Lorraine, Qld, Australia.

Hi,
I have a traditional siamese, named kenzo. He's an absolute angel at times and a terror, he has so much energy, always looking for something to do, he's broken a lot of things at home, you need a lot of patience with siamese cats..he's always bringing gifts, if it's not a birds head, then it's their wing. I do let him outdoors even tho I was not supposed to, but my house is small, he gets bored very quick. If you're planning to get a siamese be prepared, they not like your normal cats, but they very fun to own, he's very good with my little nieces, and with my moms two cats, but I introduced him early to them, he somehow made friends with a neighbors dog lol....he's full of tricks....but I wouldn't have two have them his a handful already, if he pass on, I'll most def get a siamese again.

I used to have a great angora named Samantha. She was white and odd-eyed (one blue and one gold). She has long since passed on but I do miss her a lot. She acted more like one of kids in my family and was always loving and very playful. She was always very protective and kept dogs and other cats out of our yard.

    Here is a picture of my cat which I rescued at four months old. I believe that the closest feline he resembles would be the "Turkish Angora." I would like to report some behavior that I would have not expected, having being raised by a couple of cats and dogs as I grew up. This feline, opens up cupboards and turns off lights, loves the water and even enjoys canine company. I challenge anybody to tell me that this isn't the cat that I think it in the photo. Anyways, would love to have more advice on this obscure breed- lucgreen

I own a white Turkish Angora, who is 5 years old. I adopted her from the SPCA. She is very attached to me and will follow me from room to room. She seems to have separation anxiety because if I am gone for longer than a day or two at a time, she will start pulling out her hair and wailing. She will do this even if another family member is at home with her. Is there anything I can do to ease her anxiety while I am gone?

My dad, when he was a kid, had a siamese called Mittens. One day, he got a concussion, so he had to go home. Overnight, Mittens came over and wrapped herself around his head, protecting him. After that, he started calling her Nurse Mittens.
