I just got a 5-yr-old Female, Black, Turkish Angora cat. Right now she is on a sleep all day, play all night schedule. Is there any way I can retrain her to interact and play with us during the day and sleep at night? Thanks, Lisa.

    I just read your note, hope I can help. Our cat was the same. I don't know if you are an at home all day person like me, but if you are, all you have to do is entertain him...Keep him awake! I take him outside with me, let him hunt for an hour or so while doing yard work, then an hour os so before bed, get out the toys and especially the laser. I make sure he chases it at least thirty minutes or more, without fail. Next thing we know, he finds himself conked out behind the t.v. for the rest of the night. Just keep him engaged, just like a newborn...Before you know it, he and you will sleep through the night.

I believe I am one of the luckiest ppl in the world. O ne day,driving through my small town home of algood, TN there were gorgeous newborn kittens in the road. One was already hit but still hanging on, he was transported to the vet. We picked one up and took him home. It wasn't until about a year later we found out what he was. I was watching cats 101 and saw the turkish angora and realized that I had a rare cat breed. And I bet if the jerks who threw them kittens out knew they were rare they would still have them. But he is the sweetest cat you could ever find and I am so happy we rescued him when we did :)

I just love Pumpkin, my maine coon. He is about 6 to 8 yrs old and he is a wonderful loving friend for me and I did decide to keep him in as a house cat because of where I live. He sleeps by me and lays next to me wherever I go. At one time he must have been hurt because of his one rear hip, runs but has a little problem with that hip. But right now I am having a real problem with him not eating and it is mainly the dry food I cannot seem to get him to enjoy and today he came out from sleeping and meowed at me and was telling me that he was hungry. Yes he eats some moist food but I cannot get him to eat a dry food. He drinks some water but not enough I don't think, and of course his stool has not been much. Has urinated quite a bit. You say they are not hard to feed but he is giving me run for my money. Have fed him Friskies and Natural food from a pet store and he does not like any. Is it time to take him to the vet? He is my big orange and white fluffy buddy.

    I'm sorry to say that he may possible have kidney disease. If you get him to the vet for test, and he is in early stages, you can continue to have him around for years. Or he could have a tooth problem, and need dental work. Dry food is not good for cats, no matter what has been previously stated. It can cause kidney disease. I know, because my 16 year old has had kidney disease for 6 years, and with careful monitoring.......testing, giving fluids with an i.v. under the skin,( you can easily learn to do it......she is your baby!) proper diet, and many trips to vet, she has held out 6 years past what she was supposed to. He has all the symptoms, drinking a lot of water, not eating, and urinating huge quantities. More goes out than they can drink........that's why the sub q fluids. It's very important to get his bowels moving so that the toxins that normal kidneys would filter. I just stumbled upon this site, so email me if you like.

I just got my 1st Maine Coon 6.5 months ago and she is such a joy! She really is like a dog since she follows my husband and I around the house, plays fetch, and brings us her toys to play. Patches also LOVES to "help" us around the house too, and it is so so cute! EVERYTHING I have heard and read about the breed is true. It's a dream come true, since I always wanted a Maine Coon and now do. My condolences to those of you who've lost your babies to the rainbow bridge. I am sure one and all will find new babies in due time...

    I note your comment 'over the rainbow bridge', therefore you must be a Kirks Folly fan. Are you on the Kirks Folly Forum? My name on there is 'Meg'. I have two Maine Coon cats, one Tabby and one Silver. They are both l0 years old and are really true to breed with their characteristics. The male (silver) follows me round endlessly and is still acting like a kitten. The female is more superior!

I am one of those lucky people adopted a turkish angora who had been living on the streets for several months through the spring and summer. I brought him home in Nov.

I think he was a gift from God dropped from the sky just for me. Because of that and his white coat, I call him star. He is white like a star and is a star in my life.

I don't understand how such beautiful and supposedly valuable cats can just be dropped off by someone. I think that both those who have taken in homeless turkish angoras and those turkish angoras themselves are all VERY LUCKY.

I have a Turkish Angora, we adopted him at the humane society. His name is Galileo and he is so sweet. We lost a 21 year old cat and he was the perfect cat to fill his place. Galileo is white and black with the greenest eyes I've ever seen. He is my best friend :D

As the owner of an Am. Shorthair, I have to say that over my life, they have made a fabulous impression. When I'm not comforted by purrs and warm fur, I'm laughing about her antics, or amused by her 'superiority complex'. I live in a small place, and she's a champion bug hunter - Cockroaches beware!

I love dogs very much, but for my money, its my Am. Shortie who keeps me going day to day!

Most cats will quickly learn to use the litter box, it's instinctual for them. Place the cat in the litter box several times so he knows where it is, and then again after each time the cat fails to use it, it usually only takes a day or so. Turkish Angoras are very smart and will pick it up quickly. Ours asks to go outside when he has to go to the bathroom, or in an emergency will only go in the sink.
