Pussy cat breeds

Post by SEZnz on Sun Jul 11, 2010 3:27 am

Almost 2 weeks ago our beautiful tonkinese girl went walk abouts and didn't come home Sad

it's a bit quick but we have a little kitten and don't want him to be brought up alone so are thinking about a new cat... infact thinking of two - the whole reason we got Olly was because Luna's brother also went missing a few years back - they were such good mates that we wanted that for her again. i figure that if we get two more kittens around the same age and bring them up together, if (heaven forbid, we can't be that unlucky!!) something was to happen to one of our babies, we'd still have 2 left together and no worries about introducing another one to the solo one (if we were only to get one new one.)

don't know if that makes sense or not!? haha

anyway, what breeds do you guys like and why? temprament is most important to us. Olly is a ragdoll and a funny, sweet little guy. Luna and her brother, Roo were tonkinese (siamese, burmese cross) and we also had a cheetoh (bengal, oscicat cross) - i've had moggies and although of course you can come across amazing moggies and nasty purebreed cats, we'd like to go with a breed that's specially bred to be lovely Smile

thinking maybe either 2 bengals or a bengal and maine coon - thoughts? would love to get another cheetoh but there aren't any for another season (we're in the middle of winter here) and another tonkinese might just be a little raw still.

Very cute!
We've always had great sucess w/ shelter cats that are mixed breeds! We just lost our 14 yr old kitty & are waiting till hubby is done w/ college before we get another one.

We always have gotten mixed bread/ rescue cats. My cat is probably part main-coon, but the vet says she definately has abyssinian. I have a friend who had 2 main-coons. They seem to be very good family cats. Sweet temperaments. Our other cat we are guessing is partly Norwegian forest cat and she is a wonderfully good natured cat. All cats are good cats!

All of ours have been strays that got fed and stayed. Our old guy (Fritz)died last fall at 14, and I finally let the outside cats in. Fritz was part Maine coon and we referred to him as a lover, not a fighter. He had a very gentle, laid-back nature that I have rarely seen in cats. Full grown dogs didn't bother him at all. He is sorely missed.

I too adopted my first ever two kittens last year. They are tabbies and sooo lovely! They are indoor cats with claws intact, but I clip them whenever they get long, so that helps....I dont know how they would do with dogs, but when I introduced one then they were kittens they didnt mind, but who knows now... They say kittens are very adaptable you just have to introduce them to different evironments when they are young. (PS they hate my dish washing machine as I only started using it this year, lol, my fault)

I had mixed breeds growing up, but my husband grew up with Siamese that he adored.

They were large and the eldest female helped him to learn to walk. She would stand still and allow him to grab on, stand himself up and would continue to stay with him while he steadied himself.

They had crossed eyes, crooked tails and made strange, low growling sounds instead of meowing. They sound pretty unique.
