Cornish Rex-breed under the magnifying glass

 

Today I want to present you a special breed of cat: Cornish Rex. It’s a relatively new race. Her story begins in 1950 at a farm in Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, England.

Cornish Rex has earned a faithful audience through its physical and temperamental qualities.

But it is not to be confused with the Cornish Rex breed with the Devon Rex breed. The two breeds, Cornish Rex and Devon Rex, have nothing to do with it.

Origin

In 1950, Nina Ennismore, in Serena’s nest, discovered a chick with a special look. It looks like a miniature jade. She had the furry fur. As he grew, he was more and more different from his brothers. The brethren looked like a domestic British. The chick, however, had a fine body, long legs, narrow head, large lion-like ears, and a long tail.

Nina was growing up of Rex rabbits. She was familiar with genetic mutations. So he realized that the kitty, named Kallibunker, was a special animal. Upon the recommendation of the veterinarian, she consulted a specialist in genetics, A.C.Jude. Together with the well-known feline scientist Brian Sterling-Webb, they recognized in Kallibunker the bearer of a special gene. To fix the mutation, they paired him with his mother. There were 3 kittens: one female with ordinary fur and two short furred skirts. This is how the first cats were named Cornish Rex. By place of origin and by type of Rex rabbit fur.

Nina Ennismore tried to fix and grow the new breed. He has exported some cats to US specialists.

At the beginning of the 1960s, Brian Sterling-Webb continued his selection and fixation effort with the few survivors of Serena and Kallibunker. He wanted to see standard Cornish Rex breed. The Rex gene is recessive, meaning Rex blonde occurs only if the kitten inherits one gene from each parent.

Several races contributed, through the controlled crossing, to stabilizing the breed. These are Siamese, British Shorthair, Burma, and Oriental.

If you want, you can see my post here and here

Cornish Rex was officially recognized in England in 1967.

In the US he has been successful since the beginning and since 1963 has been accepted in competitions. All North American organizations have recognized Cornish Rex as their race. Apart from the CFA-Cat Fanciers’ Association. It did not recognize the differences, and therefore competed together, Cornish Rex and Devon Rex. Barley in 1979, the CFA recorded with distinct standards the other race.

The breed is highly appreciated in the United Kingdom and the United States.

Appearance

Cornish Rex’s velvety body covers a body with fine bones, with a sporty and muscular allure.

 

Cornish Rex 1

 

The body is slim and long without being tubular. It has strong thighs, arched back, abdomen line curving backward. It ends with a long and very soft tail.

The long and graceful neck supports the head like a small, narrow egg. The forehead is round, long nose with a Roman profile, specific to the breed.

Oval eyes are well open. Large, alert, high-pitched nodes on the head convey an unmistakable image.

Coat, with a wavy look, though seemingly stiff and stiff, surprisingly pleasing to the touch. Because it has one layer, it’s hot.

The appetite is legendary in this breed. It’s greedy.

The life expectancy is 15 years, but it is not an exception nor the age of 20 years. Life with a Cornish resembles a prolonged childhood. Do not saturate the play and the toys.

Character

Cornish Rex adapts very easily to apartment life. She is an intelligent, curious, extroverted cat, untiring to reach her goal. The small body hides a very loving and extremely active creature. He does not feel the need to be like other breeds. Instead, it needs a lot of running space.

It’s a very intelligent cat. Her admirers think they can hear how his wheels are spinning.

They like to accompany their master over and over without interruption. Pretty talkative, she has a penetrating voice.

She is sociable with other cats, but also with dogs.

It does not stand loneliness.

Despite its sophisticated look, Cornish is particularly playful and affectionate.

Care

Cornish Rex is characterized by the absence of the protective fur coat. It has a delicate look. However, it is less sensitive to cold than we could expect. Nature has this breed with a thermoregulation system that allows it to withstand cold winter weather. Body temperature is higher than other cats: 38.5 / 390 C.

However, it must be protected from sudden temperature and current differences. The ears should be controlled and cleaned regularly. And the base of the tail. Are the areas most exposed to cutaneous infections.

Generally, it is a robust animal that rarely gets sick.

Cornish Rex 2

Care of the coat is done weekly with a glove. The fur remains clean with well-placed curls. The quality of the coat is the most important factor in the exhibition.

Conclusions

If you think of catching a cat of this breed, certainly do not trick yourself. She is very intelligent, affectionate and playful. She does not like loneliness. If you have other cats and/or dogs, Cornish Rex will not cause problems. It is friendly to other cats and dogs.

It is also longevity and rarely gets sick.

Some breeders claim that special fur, being formed more hair than fluff, leads to better tolerance for more sensitive or even allergic individuals.

Allergy is caused by dandruff and animal saliva.

Other breeders believe that this breed flies like any other, being a much less obvious process.

As the views are divided, the buyer has to focus on the problem himself.

I would love to know your opinion, leave me a comment if you liked the article. Thank you.

Cat’s taste

 

After a few days break, here I am again.

Today I want to tell you about the cat’s taste.

The cat has a sharp sense of smell. Much better than man. Instead, cat’s taste is less developed.

The content of today’s post:

Feline does not chew but swallow

The role of the experience

Palatability

Cat preferences

Conclusions

Feline does not mesh but swallow

We all know that the cat is a feline. One smaller one. The big cats are perfectly suited to predatory life. Their teeth reveal many features of diet and lifestyle.

The small skull provides limited space for the teeth (16 on the upper jaw and 14 on the lower jaw). The four canines positioned on both jaws use pruning and killing the leek. Most felines penetrate the throat.

Molars work like scissors. Thus, the cats cut the meat into pieces that can be swallowed.

pisoi 3

The lower jaw can only be moved vertically. That’s why cats don’t chew but swallow.

Domestic cats suffer from various tooth disorders. Especially tartar. That’s why veterinarians insist that cats be fed only with dry food. Breaking croquettes and friction on the tooth reduce tartar. Nature fights dental affections through a certain diet. But I give them to spoil, sometimes and wet food. But just as spoiled.

The role of the experience

Mother’s food influences the composition of amniotic fluid and milk consumed by chicken. It is the first step towards the development of the taste sensation.

After birth, the environment influences food preferences. The cat is always drawn to new food. If it is more palatable, it has a good chance of being quickly accepted. The refusal of a new, even palatable, meal occurs, especially in stressful situations. For example a brutal change in diet or the environment. That’s why when we change the cat’s diet we have to do it gradually, within two, three weeks. We were mixing the food from the two diets: initially more of the old diet, then gradually mixing more of the new one.

pisoi 1

If a cat gets sick after ingestion of a toxic product, she learns to avoid it in the future.

Palatability

Taste and palatability are not the same things. Palatability is essential when the cat decides to eat something. Palatability is the term describing how much cat likes the taste, smell and texture of the food.

 

Quality food is formulated not only to be nutritious but also to be palatable. The value of quality food lies not only in its ingredients but also in the fact that it is consumed by the cat. When she eat with pleasure means that the goal has been reached.pisică

Major manufacturers are investing in studies that determine the happiest combination of ingredients and processing technology. This results in nutritious and palatable food.

Cats are attracted not only by the taste of the food but also by its color, aroma, and texture. They are interested in the shape and size of the grain and prefer the acid taste.

Among the most important elements that contribute to greater palatability are fat, acidity, and dehydration.

In the pet food industry, palatability is a concept that is based on an optimal partition system, the use of top quality raw materials, the control of the technological process. Both the raw materials and the feed obtained are stabilized against oxidation and protected from microbial alteration.

Cat preferences

The cat, strictly carnivorous, is very sensitive to the presence of certain amino acids associated with animal proteins. But the false impression is that the cat only prefers fish or meat. This preference varies greatly depending on the individual.

The cat has its own way of testing fat, each type of fat is characterized by a certain length of the fatty acid chain. For example, the cat refuses certain vegetable oils characterized by an average length of the fatty acid chain. She gives great attention to texture and granulation. He does not like the very small particles.

With several cats, I noticed that some prefer sunflower oil. Others, coconut oil. Others, pig fat. Butter. It is clear that preferences vary according to the individual.

The cat is very sensitive to bitter taste, not supporting it. For example, refuse food containing sweeteners with a bitter taste like saccharin. The sense of taste varies from one specimen to another. The cat detects salt only in higher concentration.
Instead there are cats who love sweet ones.

pisoi 4

Taste helps cats test the taste of the food they provide. Soil, gastric and pancreatic secretions are stimulated. Receptors or taste buds are part of the taste buds. These were located on the upper surface of the tongue, the palatal mucosa, epiglottis and pharynx. By comparison, the dog has more starters than the cat.

These receptors are functional from birth, but they take a few weeks to mature. The intensity of taste perception decreases with age.

Certain diseases or the administration of certain drugs alter taste sensitivity. Cells are connected to the brain where sensations are recorded: a meal will be accepted later.

Conclusions

The cat appreciates the food by associating the two senses: taste and olfactory. They have clear preferences for animal products. In the pet food industry, the raw materials and flavors used are processed from ingredients of animal origin.

Especially for cats, we have to take into account the cat’s preferences and how he appreciates the taste of the food offered. And not just for cats of race. If we love our cat, we want to have it healthy and enjoy it as long as possible.

They have a formidable instigation and will refuse food they do not like.

Fortunately, there are plenty of cat food available on market . Even for sensitive cats or dietary foods for various diseases. It depends on us what kind of food we offer. But first of all, he must satisfy their nutritional needs of cats and be of good quality.

I would love to read your comments. Or maybe you have questions to try to answer.

The story of another kitten, Jimmy

Although I lost it in 2009 and lived only 9 years, his memory is still alive. It’s my sixth kitten. A beautiful, intelligent, courageous and relaxed kitten. Very clean. Writing his story I want to pay homage to him.

The story of another kitten, Jimmy, I write it in a moment of sadness. It overwhelms his memory.

He was a very friendly kitten.

But let me tell you the story of another kitten starting with:

Early

It was September 2000. During this time of year, in our area is a beautiful and gentle autumn. Mitzi, the mother of Clare, made chicken again, somewhere in the grass, among the blocks.

When they were one month old, together with my daughter, I moved Mizi with the chickens in the kiln dryers. There were five puppies. Everybody was really expensive, but Jimmy, when I got it, spit on me and fight.

From now on it was October and it was cold, so I had to move Mitzi to the chickens.

Clara started to care for them. It was their sister’s bigger. He also gives Mitzi time to walk.

When they were 3 months old, 4 chicks gave them for adoption. Jimmy kept it.

Jimmy

Christmas Eve

In the evening they invited us to my father-in-law. But I was not in the mood to leave home. So I told them I invited some neighbors, Clara and Jimmy. My societies were pleased and told us it was very good. It’s great to have good with our neighbors. But they did not know that the neighbors were two cats lol.

I got the carols that I invited in the house. There were high school boys who were already studying for the third year. We have already become friends. They stayed until morning.

Along with the carols, they entered Clara and Jimmy’s house. We already had three kittens: Thomas, Little Jessie, and Pussy.

Clara and Jimmy approached the Christmas tree. They were very interested in the ornaments of the tree, but they were good and did not ruin anything. Clara seemed to tell Jimmy: “Let’s be good, maybe we’ll get into the house.” And we understand: they stayed in the house. But with a special regime. If the other three of our kittens did not get out of the apartment, Clara and Jimmy

Jimmy 2

were leaving when they were in the mood. They lived outside, they knew to avoid dangers.

Living in the block

Jimmy was very well integrated into our house and was extremely good. I was working at home, on my computer. Jimmy wanted my attention. I could not always give it to him. He sat down beside the computer and sat for hours.

Once he urgently asked for his affection, and if he saw that he was not receiving it, he turned his back towards me and “marked me” lol. I talked to the veterinarian about this and he told me that his mother was “marked” by a lion at the lol zoo.

Until one day when Jimmy did not come home for three weeks. He disappeared at the same time as Clara. I searched for them, I called them all the time. I had already lost all hope. But three weeks later, Jimmy appeared at home, weak, hungry, dirty. A few more days I found Clara.

At one point I lost Thomas. He was not accustomed to of the house. I do not know how he slipped. After three days of searching, my only hope of finding was Clara and Jimmy. I told the episode in my post about Clara. The fact is that after a conversation with a man I had with Clara, it pulled me out and next to a block was Jimmy. He was actually watching Thomas. I cried at him and at the block of the block was halfhearted. It was Thomas, blocked by things thrown by neighbors. Blocked for three days. I took him and took him home. What clearer proof I would have wanted Jimmy

Jimmy 3 and Clara to be particularly intelligent.

Living at home

We moved in 2003, November, to the house. The hardest thing to do was to take kittens. But I finally succeeded.

The winter came and I did not leave the cats outside. They have adapted relatively easily to the new conditions. Okay, with great care and understanding on our part. Cats hardly adapt to major changes in their lives.

But in the spring cats have discovered the yard and the garden. Who was happier than them? They were running through the garden, standing in the sun, “swarming” butterflies.

But JimmyJimmy 4

was running away from home through his neighbors. Until I secured the yard, she can not leave. Let’s know it safe.

It’s been six years that Jimmy was really happy. He had made friends with the dogs I had taken from the block.

But unfortunately, in 2009 he got sick. He did kidney failure. Six days I went to the doctor to give him infusions. Twice a day. During this time, the home was good and very clean. She used the litter until the last minute. But the poor did not resist on November 23, 2009, when the doctor was at 20:30.

Conclusions

First of all, I told you Jimmy’s story in his memory.

Then to draw some lessons:

1. Though when he was young, he was bitter, when we offered him decent living conditions and especially all our love, Jimmy became a good, educated and loving kitten. How can you take care of a kitten you can see here.

2. If you want a cat, adopt one. You will have a friend who loves you unconditionally. Only if you want to go to competitions with your cat, you can choose a cat with pedigree, breed.

3. They all have an end. Unfortunately, the life expectancy of cats is much smaller than ours. It’s very hard to get over the extinction of your dear friend who lived with you, both good and bad. It is the same as losing a relative, or worse. How can you overcome such sadness you can see here.

I would love to leave a comment telling me your thoughts about the cat you have. Thank you.

Norwegian forest cats -my favorite breed

As it appears from the title, by far my favorite breed is Norwegian forest cats. Fortunately, I have one, actually a half-breed. We had one, but she died. Both of us were in the competition and both got the diploma.

I will present a brief history, temperament, maintenance, standard of these wonderful Norwegian forest cats.

Short history

The oldest references are found in folklore, stories collected and recorded between 1837 and 1852.

The big cat with a long, bushy tail is about 500 years old in Norwegian forests and farms. It is believed that the breed is even older, having 100-200 years.

The origin of these vigorous cats is controversial. Some say they have arrived in Scandinavia brought by the tribes of Central and Asian Europe. Others believe the Vikings took their small Asian ships (Caucasus, Anatolia) to protect their rodents. Others believe that Norwegians are the result of crossbreeding between short-haired cats from England by Vikings and long-haired cats from the Crusader Orient.

Whatever the beginning, these cats have adapted to the harsh climate of the North. They were “dressed” with a warm and waterproof coat in cold and snowy weather.

Norwegian 1

The thick fur is made up of two layers. Can protect the cat from temperature -25C.

Wild cats approached farms, becoming familiar to humans.

Only in 1930 Norwegians began to care about these cats. They set up a conservation and reproduction program.

In 1938, in Oslo, a Norwegian copy of the forest was first exhibited and arbitrated.

World War II caused a long break, Norwegian is almost forgotten.

Some passionate resumed selection in the seventh decade. Their work materialized in the recognition of the breed in 1972.

The first standard dates back to 1975. It was approved by FIFe in 1977, renewed in 1987 to resolve the confusion between Norwegian and Maine Coon.

Approval of the breed was a great success for Norwegians. King Olaf has designated his national cat.

On June 1, 1994, various feline associations had nearly 1,400 copies.

No crossing out of breed is allowed. Those that have preserved the natural traits without human intervention are the Norwegians of today.

Temperament

Regarding temperament, Norwegian is not a cat like other cats. She had to be intelligent and inventive to survive. When the weather was bad and little food, only the smartest specimens were able to find shelter and food.

Despite the Scandinavian appearance, Norwegian is a sympathetic and balanced, calm, playful cat.

Norwegian 2

She is sociable. She is easily acquainted with other cats, dogs and is a good companion for children. For example, my cat, half-breed of Norwegian, is washing the other cats in the house and doing it with much love. And he turned 17.

The harsh life of the wilderness determined an active, vigilant temper, without being nervous.

Rustic, robust, sporty, Norwegian is a great hunter and climber. She has taught generations that the best defense is the attack. This has caused a strong will and a relentless drive.

Accepts change and adapts easily to new situations.

Although affectionate, the owner has to deal with it because it tends to be independent

She has a strong personality and is “talkative,” without being noisy.

In the natural environment, it spends most of its time climbing in the tallest trees, From there hunting birds in flight.

If it is a cat, we must have a climbing tree in the apartment.

An entire male will adopt harder to live in the house, he will mark the territory.

Maintenance

Norwegian is an easy-to-maintain cat. Food should be of good quality and balanced.

Weekly her fur is squirted and brushed with care, not to break the long threads that are hard to recover. If the fur has a tendency to scam, we will do it more often. The tail is brushed in the scrub, paying attention to the long wires.

During the summer Norwegian becomes a cat with short fur. The bushy tail and the ears of the ears recall that it is a cat with half-hairs.

Norwegian 4

At the beginning of the fall Norwegian dressed in winter clothes. In the winter full of the proud is the most beautiful.

As a general rule, Norwegian does not get muddy because it destroys the natural layer of fat of the coat. It creates waterproofness and gives the characteristic shade to the coats.

Very popular, Norwegian is a trendy breed despite the Maine Coon race. It brings a corner of paradise to the owners’ home, personifying the fascination of the north.

Standard

Waist-high; heavyweight 3-9 kg; females are considerably smaller

Head of triangular shape, with equal sides; of the profile, high; slightly curved forehead, long and straight profile; Barbie farm.

Ears-wide, with a good opening of the base; sharp edges; lynx, with long wires that come out of the ear; high and open placement, so the ear’s caliber follows the headline to the chin.

Eyes large and oval, well open, slightly sloping; alert expression; all colors are prefabricated in harmony with the coat color.

Body-long, strong; strong bone structure

Legs strong, tall, legs higher than previous ones; large, rounded toe-pads.

The long and bushy tail must reach at least the shoulder line, but it is preferable to touch the neck

Fur coat; under the rope hair is covered by a smooth, waterproof cloak, made of long, shiny, shiny threads covering the back and sides. A well-bred cat has collar, favors, and pants.

Colors-all colors are allowed including all colors with white; exceptions are: chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, and fawn; or white ice white surface is allowed: white buttons, white medallion, white chest, white abdomen, white patches on the paws.

Norwegian 3

Conclusions

Norwegian forest is a fascinating, easy-to-maintain cat. She is very sociable and a very good companion for children. It is easy to make friends with other cats and char with dogs, They are extremely intelligent. Great hunters. Accept changes and adjust easily.

She is a trendy breed despite her Maine Coon race. It brings a corner of paradise to the owners’ home, personifying the fascination of the north.

If you decided to take a cat of this breed, you did not cheat. She is generally healthy and her life expectancy is 14-16 years. It will be the joy of the house.

How do we avoid the unwanted behavior of cats?

Many owners face various problems: the unwanted behavior of cats. From harmless ones to troublesome ones. Scratching the furniture, climbing the curtains, playing with toilet paper or avoiding the use of a litter are just a few examples.

Today I will explain the serious problem of unwanted  behavior of cats and especially how to cope with splashing.

Identifying unwanted behavior-marking

The cat has a very developed sense of smell. If our smell is like a stamp, the smell of the cat is a handkerchief. It also communicates olfactory. The ways she communicates this way are: rubbing, scratching and spraying with urine.

marking territory

An important indicator of the difference between marking and urination is the behavior of the cat in the two situations.

If the cat urinated and started burying, it will stop to smell the spot before continuing. This will be repeated as long as the smell intensity is pronounced.

Splashing is usually aimed at visible and significant objects. The cat turns back toward the wall and, in the right position, sprays a small amount of urine. In tomcat, the phenomenon is more frequent and more pronounced. But cats can also see the same thing.

The target is sprinkled at a height of 30-60 cm from the ground. Splashing is followed by intense vibration of the tip of the tail. The cat’s face has a very concentrated expression.

Purpose of splat marking

The highest percentage of splashing is found in cats that are not castrated.

It decreases significantly after we castrated it. But absolutely all the cats mark.

In a mixed cat community, males splash more frequently when there is a hot dog. Females splash when they are in the first phase of heat. Their markup contains information about one reproductive status. Males spend a lot of time investigating it. Much more than if the mark is of a female that is not hot. This is the sexual function of the marker.

Splashing has three functions: territorial, relational and reaction (emotional stabilization).

In cats kept in the house, emotional stabilization is most prominent. A new space incites the marking mechanism. The cat introduces its own odor into the unknown space. To customize it and increase your sense of security.

And in cats living outside, there is the possibility of scarring in response to stress. It reacts in the same way as a house cat.

When the cat splashes the owner’s personal things, something is wrong in their relationship.

The cat may splash in the following situations:

– Stress due to general conditions ( when a baby or a new animal appears in the house)

– When something changes in the apartment

– When the furniture is rearranged

– When the family moves

In these cases, the sprinkling direction defines the cat’s space.

– Changing family relationships

– The existence of a conflict with a family member with another animal or the overpopulation of the house (a cat needs 5 square meters  at least to live comfortably).

The cat usually sprinkles where it feels vulnerable.

Prevention

A safe boundary between the inner world (the house) and the outer one must be created. The cat owner has full control of the access ways.

When the cat stays alone at home, she must have water, food, litter. Also, have free access to the house.

The ideal is not someone outside, not even the cat door.

Let’s make sure that the smells of the house stay as stable as possible and familiar to cats. This reduces the risk of splashing.

The open-door conveyor will be an effective help.

To minimize the feeling of insecurity, we will give cats the opportunity to climb high-quality furniture, poles and special platforms. The behavior of the cat will be relaxed and quiet because it can always catch up and get rid of potential danger. So she will not feel the need to escape or marking.

marking territory 1

Some suggestions

We were laying the cat with a towel, especially the head (the glands used by her to mark the territory) and then wiping the vertical surfaces of the house at the height of the cat with that towel. This makes the cat feel at ease and the risk of stamping is significantly reduced.

If you struggle with the unpleasant smell of house cat urine, do not use aggressive detergents containing chlorine or ammonia. They also contain elements that have decomposed urine. I can generate repeated cat splashing.

Sprayed surfaces should be cleaned with enzyme-based products. They will eliminate bacteria and odors. But it could also encourage the cat to sprinkle again because the signature has “expired”.

It is not advisable to use a water gun against the sprinkler cat. Rather, it increases anxiety and causes more sprains. If we punish the cat, the splash will continue when we are absent.

Splashing can also be translated by attracting attention when not enough cat attention. Splashing becomes, in this case, the tool of our conditioning cat.

Conclusions

Although it is a natural and normal phenomenon, spraying can be avoided.

Socializing and forming appropriate habits will develop the ability to overcome challenges.

If the cat continues to sprinkle,marking territory 2

we need to pinpoint the causes. Then eliminate them.

I have listed the causes during this post.

There is another method against sprinkling. See here.

I hope I helped many cat lovers who are confronted with this phenomenon. Especially those who keep cats only in the house. I assure you that patients will be avoided in the future.

Please leave a comment about your experience on marking. Thank you.

Your cat is an expert?

Today I’m proposing a small test to measure some of your cat’s auditive and visual capabilities. To find out if your cat is an expert. The test did not designed by me. I found it in a specialist magazine. But I liked it very much and I want to share it with you.

From a scientific point of view, the test is not absolutely accurate. But if you do, I assure you that you will be amused. It was quantified on a sample of 65 cats. So let’s find out if your cat is an expert.

Preamble

The cat is a very good observer and learns everything quickly. There are cats that can open the door or window. Others manage to turn off or turn on the light. They watch how people do these things every day.

Cats are very good strategists to capture a spoil. There are cats carrying bread crumbs in the garden to attract the birds. Then they hide until the moment becomes optimal for the attack.
Cats are smart.

Test – your cat is an expert?

Choose one answer for each question.

1. When you talk to them, your cat:

a) Believe that you address them

b) Play with the thread or the device

c) You do not talk to her and look at you as if he were saying “do not talk”

d) Has no reaction

2. Your cat is in front of the TV when flying birds are on the screen. Or other cats. Then she:

 

watch TV

a) Do not react

b) falls asleep

c) Study the screen well, wanting to find out where they went

d) Try to attack

3. How does your cat calculate the distance when it wants to jump on the window or on the table?

a) He is very able, never fails

b) Generally, the figure succeeds, char sometimes if it is wrongly calculated

c) You do not know, because your cat does not bother to jump in high places

Chartreux another breed under the magnifying glass

 

Reserved and solitary, Chartreux is calm to the world. She is tolerant and gentle with strangers, young children and, other animals. The Chartreux other breed under the magnifying glass is the presentation of this special breed, both by intelligence and by beauty.

Chartreux

To those he loves, Chartreux  shows them a devotion that a stranger can not imagine.

Appreciates the gentle treatment of the owner, being very sensitive to praise or quarrels.

Sometimes he learns very slowly and it takes a lot of patience.

So let’s see Chartreux other breed under the magnifying glass: a short history, nutrition and care, a few words about Chartreux, the standard.

Short history

Similar to other cat breeds and the origin of the Chartreux cat is lost in legend. Some say these cats have been brought from Captain Good Hope to the Chartreux order. Where did they get their name from? Other sources say the name comes from a famous fabric in Spain, ” Chartreux” because of its special coat. In the sixteenth century, Italian naturalist Aldrovandi mentioned Syria as the country of origin.

Some authors as Chartreux are cats identical to those of the British Blue breed. Others think it was once a separate breed that merged with British Blue.

In fact, the two breed have different physical and temperamental characteristics. Research of pedigrees confirms that owners have distinctly upward cats.

Cats have arrived in Europe with the withdrawal of troops left in the crusades. The trip was long. Through the Mediterranean islands, the feline was named “cat of Malta” or “cat of Cyprus”.

The double coat of this cat indicates that it comes from a mountainous area. Maybe through Iran, Syria, and Turkey.

Nowadays, Chartreux is the most representative short-haired cat in France. Whatever the reason, Chartreux , with his brilliance and intelligence, “adopted” France. In turn, this country adopted this breed.

Charles de Gaulle himself was the owner of such a cat.

The cat is considered to be part of the French heritage nowadays.

Many breeders used Persian or British for crossbreeding with Chartreux , unsuccessful. That is why we must study the pedigree of each Chartreux in part.

Nutrition and care

Chartreux is not moody, but it can be sensitive to changes in diet.

Some breeders pass the kittens to adult food around the age of 4-5 months.

kitten of Chartreux

Kittens feed is very nutritionally rich. Older specimens should be fed with easier food to avoid weight gain.

Kitten is precious. To grow harmoniously they need a lot of patience, love, and understanding. After long adolescence, they become adults with an impressive personality.

Some Chartreux kitten have small incisors and too close. They are pushed when they grow older. There is a need for filing. It is necessary to take the cat to the vet for it. And for the control and cleaning of teeth too.

Daily rooting is not necessary. It is enough to move your hand through the hair. Then finish with a piece of deerskin for shine. However, during brushing it is mandatory. This pleasant routine contributes to the cat’s social abilities.

The fur is waterproof. It does not get soaked lightly due to its texture and does immunity. Repeat when you want to make a bath.

 

A few words about Chartreux

Chartreux 2

The breeders agree that Chartreux, especially castrated, are the best pets. I am extraordinarily devoted to family life.

It is a massive cat that grows slowly. The male is larger than the female. The coat in two coats, soft and glossy, of a special density, makes the cat look bigger.

There are very active cats. Playing with other animals in the house and with children. Your favorite exercise is to catch others and not get caught.

She preferred our bed.

She quickly learns her name and comes when she is called.

It almost resembles a dog in terms of devotion.

The environment and the attention given determine to a great extent the personality and behavior of the adult.

It adapts well to any new situation. It supports well the trips and loneliness. She is less talkative than other breeds. He has a thin, slow and discreet kiss.

He’s a good hunter. When playing is effective. Expect the optimal moment to make the decisive move. It does it with amazing speed and accuracy. Playing in short intervals. Most of the time he spends sleeping.

Follow the owner anywhere, lying down when he’s sad or sick. Her present is wonderful, not just for the ones alone or the elders.

Standard

She harbors a robust, short-haired, simple-looking breed. Not classic nor modern, even primitive. Although it has a strong constitution, it is agile and elastic. The texture and color of the coat and eyes are determined by gender, age, environmental factors.

Head and neck rounded and wide, but not round; strong jaws, full cheeks, high forehead, slightly contoured, wide and straight nose; narrow little toe; sweet, smiling expression; short and strong neck.

Ears-small to medium, slightly broad at the base, slightly rounded, high-headed and upright.

Eyes-round and open, with an alert expression, suitable for large and remote; the color between copper and gold, clear and deep; the most appreciated color is a brilliant orange.

Body and tail-robust physical, medium width with wide shoulders and deep chest; strong and strong muscles and muscles; tail of moderate length, thicker at the base, with oval tip; vibrant and flexible.

Legs and paws – straight and strong legs, relatively short, with a fine bone; round and medium-to-large (it can appear almost delicate compared to the massive body)

Coat in two layers, medium-short length and light texture as wool; the degree of wool resemblance depends on the age, the sex and the environment in which it lives.

The color-any hue of gray-blue, from gray to slate; the threads lightly splashed with silver; clear and uniform; the preferred color is wide, uniform, glossy blue; the nose skin is gray-blue, blue lips, pink cushions.

Most British associations do not recognize the breed. But in most US and European associations, Chartreux has been championed.

Conclusions

Chartreux breedChartreux 3

is an excellent companion for children and the elderly. And not only. It is a sturdy, adaptable cat and well supports the travels, unlike other breeds. She is very fond of the family. Very playful. It requires minimal care. We just have to pay attention to food. Adult cats should be fed with mild ankles to prevent weight gain.

How not to love this breed.

I would love to leave a comment and tell me your opinion about this breed.

Useful tips about cats

Today I will give you some useful tips about cats. I will tell you about cat discipline. Then about the problem of excessive vocals. About what we did when we brought a cat in the house where a dog already exists. I hope you find interesting these useful tips about cats.

Discipline the cat

Unlike the dog that can be trained, the cat cannot be disciplined besides a few tricks.

The dog lives in hierarchically organized packs. Man uses it. It is placed in the forefront. So he becomes the head of the group. Obtain it.

Cats form groups only when needed. This arrangement is based on respect for the territory. Not at all on the respect to the boss.

Generally, people make many mistakes in cats education. It compares the behavior of the dog with that of the dogs.

Do not try to educate the cat using physical punishment. You will only manage to fear yourself.

The cat can learn good manners. She can use data from her innate behavior.

The cat hates surprises. She gets bored to watch every move.

To stop a cat from an unacceptable action is enough to make noise. Bend your hands or say NOT decided. It is important to use the same “tactics” every time the cat has an unacceptable action. But it must be done immediately. A delay as small reduces the effectiveness of the gesture.

If your cat wants to bite, I advise you to impress your face with your palm and say NO.

Another method is to think of the cat as a child. This way you can prevent any unfortunate happening. Food should be stored in closed boxes. Dangerous or breakable objects are placed in secure places. Heavy objects, ex a shelf, must be fixed. The meat can be thawed in the cold oven, not the buffet.

The cat must be taught by the little one with what he is allowed and not allowed to do. He does not tolerate his

whims.

The cat eat  grass

cat eat grass

when it lacks certain nutrients. Indicate it would be to cultivate the grass in the pot. So the other plants in your house will get rid of cat visits. Great attention to cat poisonous plants. Inform yourself before planting the house.

Excessive vocals

Some cats are innate tongues. For example Siamese and Siamese Metis.

Is an opportunity for them to be heard, meow. When they are hungry, thirsty, or when they want to play.

The main reason why cats live is that they can get different rewards from the owner of cats. That’s how they were taught. So they develop an excessively gagging behavior.

But with little effort, he can be educated.

First, you have to accept that your cat is very vocal. Many landlords are amused by watching conversations between cats. Or char they talk with their garrulous cats.

If you upset the cat vocals, you need to take action. First of all, let’s notice the situations where the little feline finds a reason to be heard. A clear record of these situations must be kept. Lose more during the night? Before Meals? When watching your favorite show on TV?

When she digs during meal preparation, the cat anticipates that she will receive a treat and try to get it as soon as possible. The quiver of the little quad can be quenched by leaving croquettes in the saucer. Under no circumstances try to silence the cat by giving him various culinary attention. This will accentuate the unlucky vocal behavior.

When cat cats excessively when you are focused, busy, it requires attention. She’s eager to mess or play.

In some cases, the cats are constantly lying down and the owners return home. They anticipate that they will follow mangroves or play sessions.

In both cases, the cat must be taught that they do not get what they want. For this, the tender moments and the sessions of care must be limited only to the moments when the cat is silent.

tenderness

Being nocturnal animals, very active, cats probably feel the need for a pet. Leave a lit night light or even a small volume radio. In addition, before you go to bed, do your time to play with your cat. So the little feline will be quieter. Plus it will maintain a better health condition.

They can lie down at night and starve. Leave them croquettes overnight.

It takes only a little patience to teach the cat to express himself more slowly.

I personally do not have this problem although I now have 18 cats. They are quiet, but they always have food at their disposal. And they have lots of tenderness. During the summer, he runs through the courtyard night. In the winter they borrowed the human biorhythm.

The cat and the dog defy the laws of nature

You have a dog but you want a cat. But you’re afraid they will not understand. Eliminate fear and inform yourself. If you know how to act your success is assured, your dog and cat will understand.

Animal behavior experts say cats and dogs who have not had the opportunity to know other species need help to get acquainted. More help than those who have grown together.

The dog is extrovert. Being curious is the interaction with the cat. But this is often confused by such insistence. At best, it remains defensive.

The cat is usually solitary. Even if it keeps a lot of other family members (whether people or other pets).

Owners need to observe some basic rules when they want a cat in the house. In which a dog already lives. This prevents the emergence of problems that can lead to insecurity or fear. Or to develop a state of permanent aggression.

Yet they can be very good friends.

friendliness

 

Practical steps that can help in such situations:

1 If your dog is not trained, it is time to change this situation. A tasty glimpse it usually receives is enough after doing what it was asked for. The attention will be taken away from the new intruder.

2 Once you know each other’s smell (eating each other on a closed door), you can keep them in direct contact with a controlled environment. Both the cat and the dog will receive a glimpse as a reward. They will stay at one family member. In opposite corners of the room. Eventually, soak up the smells, mix them. With the dog in the leash. It is very important that the first contact is for both a reward experience. That I can live and enjoy. This step should be repeated to the belief that there is no risk of aggression.

3 The next step is to get the animals closer. With the dog in the leash and the cat in the arms of the one, he’s used to. If the dog intends to change his position you repeat the command to sit or sit down. Immediately reimburse the execution with words of encouragement or a glimpse. If you delay the reward, the dog will not associate it with his behavior. If the cat gives signs of restlessness or fear, it increases the distance between them. Try it later, gradually and with great patience. In the end, the cat and the dog must get so close that they can smell each other.

4 Do not argue or punish the dog all the time against the cat. Char if it does not always behave appropriately. If it does not associate something positive or motivating with the presence of the cat, it will develop a redirected aggression. Very dangerous when you are not present.

5 For better control of the situation, you can keep your dog in the leash. Cats walk freely through the house but secure access to some high places in the house. She can run without being reached. To be sure the cat is not in danger when you are away, the animals have to stand apart.

Conclusions

The cat cannot be trained but can be disciplined. With patience and gentleness. If it’s too vocal, with little tricks you can reveal it.

Dog and cat friendship can be both natural and cultivated.

I have presented the useful steps when you want to bring in a cat and you already have a dog.

From my own experience. When, I moved to the house I had many cats. I took from the block three stray dogs. It lasted for three weeks until I had the courage to leave them alone, unattended.

I would be happy to know from your experience, please leave me a comment.

I’m a big cat loving, since the young baby.   My mother was great loving cats, grandmother as well.   My daughter is coming to the end. My daughter loves cats so much that she makes a second faculty: veterinary medicine.   Four generations, what do you think?

My cat Clara

Was August 2000. We were still living in the block. In front of the kitchen window was the vine. One morning I heard a kiss in the beef. Was the one that would become my cat, Clara.

Was a cat for about two months, hungry. I went outside and took the kitten. I brought him home and gave him food. We had special cat food in the house. It proved to be mild though it was a cat of no one.

I guess had just finished sucking. After eating, he was asked out. I left it. Though I felt sorry to let them go into a world full of dangers for such a small cat.

But my cat Clara returned to the vine every day. She said, “I’m here, I’m here.” So I cut the net from the kitchen window and Clara went to eat.

That summer

Outside it was warm and pleasant. Clara was accustomed to eating every day. Same ritual: I’m here, I’m here.

Over time, I noticed that Clara had a brother. Later he found a home.

At one point her mother also appeared. She was a little wild but very careful with her chick. I called her Mizti.

Clara grew handsome. Meanwhile, the fall came. Mizti made  news kittens, somewhere between blocks, in the grass. I made him a couch in the drying room, which was the door in the door with our apartment. I took Mitzi with the chicken and took her to the couch. One of the chicks spit at me and I was informed, but after all, I took him. Later, I took him home and became one of my adorable kittens, Jimmy. But about him, I will write another post.

When they were three months old, the other four of his brothers gave them adoption.

From the kiln, besides the pipes, a cat had the possibility to sneak into the basement, and out there. So Mitzi sneaked quite often.

But dear Clara Clara 1

cared for kittens. She was their big sister and took her role seriously. She was particularly affectionate with them.

Indoors

It was past autumn and winter was approaching fast. Kittens grew up and placed them. Not Jimmy.

Christmas came, and in the evening I “invited” Clara and Jimmy to the house. I had some friends visiting. They were very good. Clara seemed to say to Jimmy: To be good, maybe we can get home. They sat under the Christmas tree and done’t disturb or broke anything.

They stayed in the house. It was winter now. They have learned the purpose of the house. They got used to the litter immediately. They were strong and loving.

All the winter in the house.

As spring came, they were asked out. I left them, knew the dangers and knew how to guard. When they wanted, they came to the house: eating, sleeping, loving him, They sneaked on the kitchen window.

The other kittens we had done’t go out.

Clare’s kittens

Clara, I was walking outside, in May 2001, the twentieth day, he gave me 5 gorgeous puppies. The gesture was, it was immense. My daughter said she was a …ship lol.

On the morning of May 20, 2001, I woke up with something black in bed. At first, I did not know what it was. But I realized immediately: it was Clare’s first cat pup. I quickly made her comfortable in a large laundry basket and helped her bring the rest of the chick to the world. Everything went very well and after he washed them he started to breastfeed.

It is a feeling I can not play in the words I have had. I actually saw how she brought the world and how she cared for them. It’s something fabulous what maternal instincts the cats have.

Little Jessie, another cat of mine, came to help immediately. They were both in the basket and were watching them.

When they were alone and were crying, Jessie was the first to them. They let Clara rest or eat. She had a cat litter. It seemed she wanted herself.Clara 2

When I was three months old, I gave my puppies for adoption, less one.

The following year, Clara had anothers kittens. I was exactly on February 14, 2002. She already had experience. I kept four cats this time: Titzi, Pupi, Pufly, and Albutz.

In June 2002 I sterilized her.

The adventures of Clare

Once Clara has been at home for three weeks. I thought we lost it. But I did not stop looking for her day and night. One morning I found her. It was weak and hungry. I took her home and I took care of her.

At one point I lost Thomas, the cat who was never out. I searched him for three days without any results. Then I talked to Clara as to a man. I told him Thomas was gone and my only hope of finding her is Jimmy. They were accustomed to. I asked her to find him. Maybe you can not believe it, but soon Clara started dragging me to a place where Jimmy was standing guarding something. She actually found Thomas. He was immobilized in another building by some neighbors. I cried, he answered. I recovered it. Without words, only Clara was very smart.

We moved to the house. Clara was used to patrolling out on the rooftops. But I had very bad neighbors. I secured the yard so no cat could go out. I felt sorry for Clara, he could not run freely anywhere he wanted. But I knew her safe.

She was a very fine cat, sweet, good and very clean. My husband  telling her Lady Clara.Clara 3

He’s got a move of ours to a bigger house. And a yard with a bigger garden.

He felt great, ran the stairs, played outside, stood in the sun, smelled the flowers. He never had a conflict with other cats or dogs. With an exception: George. A Stamp dog we got from the block when we moved to the house. I made him a yard dog. By the time he had the first cat chick, he scratched George. The dog then respected her.

In the yard, they became good friends and they were sleeping together.

Conclusions

My story has a substrate. If you save a cat from living insecure, she will reward you. Long and good. Providing it with adequate care. Clara ceased on August 16, 2018.

She had a long and beautiful life. He lived in three houses. And while the cat is said to be of home, I believe something else. The cat is really of house, but the house is where you are. If you change your home, your cat will feel very well in the new home. Provided you love and respect her. Understand the nature of cat.

If you love cats and want one, save it from an insecure life. There are plenty of others who really want a cat of breed. My opinion is that cats of breed are for competitions. If you want a loyal friend to love, any cat is great.
