Maine Coon-breed under the magnifying glass

In today’s post, I present a race trendy: Maine Coon-breed under the magnifying glass.

It is one of the oldest natural breeds in North America. Several legends explain its origin.

One of them and perhaps the most widespread is that the breed comes from crossing domestic and wild cats with rats. This impression, supported by the appearance of the bushy tail and the similar color, led to the adoption of the name Coon, which later became “Maine Coon”.

It seems that the breed comes from the cross between domestic cats with short hair and cats with long hair all Angora brought by sailors from New England or cats with long hair who came to America with the Vikings.

Another story says that the six Persian and Oriental cats of Maria Antoaneta arrived in the locality of Wisc asset, Maine, where Captain Chong had prepared a residence for the queen’s rescue.

The action failed but the captain’s ship arrived at the destination with luxurious royal goods. Over time, the furniture was scattered. But the royal cats mated with the local cats.

Captain Coon, a great lover of felines, is the hero of another legend about the origin of this breed. He sailed along the coast of New England with his army of cats. Most were Persian and Angora. Remaining on the American shores, the cats mingled with the natives. When it appeared in a kitten with long hairnets, people said it was one of “Coon’s cats”.

Description of breed

Maine Coons a cat with long hair,

Maine Coon

it is distinguished by its strong bone structure, rectangular contour, and rich fur. Maine Coon evolved from a domestic cat in the rural area that required strong musculature and coarse, waterproof fur. Is a healthy and resilient cat. The closest breed is forest Norway. It evolved in the same type of climate, giving credence to the theory that this cat brought by Vikings from Europe contributed to the development of Maine Coon.

All her appearance shows the adaptation to a harsh climate, and first of all the fur shiny. It is longer on the flanks and on the abdomen, to protect it from snow and rain, and shorter on the back and neck so as not to cling to the bushes.

The fur falls beautifully and needs a weekly brush in addition to the normal toilet to keep it fit.

The long, bushy tail that the cat wears twisted over its back protects it from the cold as it surrounds it.

Ears are well-groomed and very mobile. Paws Big rounded tufts of hair look like little boots. Eyes and ears are large, indispensable to a good hunter like her. The long, square muzzle catches the prey quickly.

Maine CoonMaine Coon

is one of the largest domestic breeds. She is tall, muscular, with large bones.

The cat develops slowly reaching its maximum size at the age of three or four.

The female reaches late sexual maturity.

Most important characteristics are the shape of the head and body, along with the texture and quality of the fur.

Eye color can be a golden green or peanut color.

Blue and different eyes (one blue and the other golden or green gold) are allowed on white cats. There is no requirement for the combination of fur and eye color.

Character and maintenance

Many people consider Maine Coon a perfect pet.

Main Coon

With her cheerful, affectionate and active personality. Even if they are adult specimens, their temperament is pleasant. It is a big and gentle cat, a kind of giant of the feline world. Even the voice is special with a special stamp.

Rarely does he moan, and even when he does, his voice high, pleasant does not fit his waist.

She is a perfect companion for large families, is friendly with other cats, tolerates dogs and other animals very well.

Loving, without being flattering, full of dignity but lively, Maine Coon is truly a superior breed.

Very few cats of this breed are in the owner’s lap, most of them preferring the armchair next to them.

With an independent temper, a Maine Coon behaves more like a friend.

It is a playful cat that maintains this quality throughout your life, though females are more reserved than males. The favorite game is the one that imitates the hunt but especially the contribution.

Maine Coon has a great affinity for water and can often be seen playing in the sink or sitting with a fascinated look on the edge of the bath full.

When she drank water from the pot it could be seen how she waved her paws as if cleaning her leaves, probably a reflex gesture from the wild.

These sports cat needs space, a garden is more suitable for her than an apartment.

It is a healthy, vigorous cat, which raises no special problems even when it is a kitten.

It does not need care meticulous. The fur requires a brush once or twice a week. During the mating period, a thorough toilet is needed.

The food recommendation is the dry one, of the best quality. Most cats can permanently have the full plate available without becoming overweight. In the middle-aged cats, is a sufficient measure of feeding with hooks with low caloric content.

Being a big water lover, Maine Coon should always have plenty of fresh and abundant water.

Play

Whether it’s a kitten or an adult, Maine Coon likes to play. Early morning or evening (after sleep afternoon) is the most appropriate time for a play party. So the cat participates with all the soul especially if it is an adult.

As for the kitten game, it is good to avoid violence because it can become aggressive.

If the young master threw hand and bite it, it must say NO and his blow face to discourage.

A good toy should not break apart into pieces that can be swallowed. A rod that has a ball end can be used for fishing the kitten but only in the presence of the master so as not to risk the twisting of the wire around the cat.

Most important thing is that the kitten needs the attention of the master. Especially when he has left alone all day he is happy when he sees his master and he is eager to pay attention.

Remember that the kitten is a living and sensitive being and do not allow your friends, children or other pets to spit it out.

Indifference and ill-treatment are the best ways to have later a nasty cat.

On the other hand, the owner who gives enough time to play with the kitten, which treats him with affection and attention, will grow a cat tender, which will give him much joy.

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.

Standard

General appearance: waist: medium; weight: between 2.5 and 4.5 kg; arched back; fine bone; curly hair.

Nose: Roman, having a length of one trimester than that of his head; Viewed from the profile, a straight line unites the tip of the nose with the chin, giving a square look.

Cheeks: Bones of high and prominent cheeks, well-clad.

The beard: strong, well-developed.

Neck: Medium, Fine, muscular.

Condition: farm and musky.

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.

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.

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’t 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.

The color described as an open light (the color of the nut ) with dark brown dots.

This breed lives in natural conditions in Malaya peninsula. It is a very popular rarity.

The Burmese cats lived in the temples. They were the cats of the highest ranked priests. They worshiped and honored by the ancient kings of Burma. In India, they exposed as a rarity.

The ’70s were probably the most successful ten years in Burmese history. They were so popular that they reached third, after Persian and Siamese. For a race that started in 1930 with a single cat 9 and that hybrid,) performance is great.

Females tend to occupy the central spot in the home and actively coordinate activities. Males are more tolerant and prefer to watch from a more secluded position.

Burma may feel embarrassed if she feels that her emotional needs are not met.

Many owners have confirmed that a complete Burmese experience is only possible if you have two copies of both sexes and two colors.

Health, reproduction

Burma is generally a healthy, strong and resistant cat. She has a long life and is full of vitality even when she gets older.

Burmese is a very good mother. Put it easy. While large and heavy cats valued at exhibitions, small, supple and compact females are better reproducers.

The Burmese males are attentive and tender with the females. Their calm behavior does not change during mating. Males adore kittens and will gladly dad if they have the opportunity.

The exhibitions are like benevolent bears. They like to play on the referees’ table. Communicate in a non-aggressive way. Thus, they recall their strong performance that must be respected.

Not to be confused with the Burma Sacra.

British Shorthair – another breed under the magnifying glass

I will introduce you to one of the most popular show breeds, British Shorthair. Every cat has her personality. Even brothers in the same nest have completely different characters. British Shorthair

albastru britanic

has an independent and reserved temperament. Wonderful and worthy. She is a wonderful, alert and playful cat. It is not exaggerated or destructive.

Short history

The Roman legions brought the first cats to the British islands. A few centuries later, on every street in the United Kingdom, there were cats of this breed.

By the end of the 19th century a great lover of this breed, Harrison Weir, made it very popular on this native British cat. He wrote: “The common cat survived all the hardships and persecutions. The fact that it still exists is due to its character and resilience”. By selecting and raising the best cats British Shorthair breed was born. Similar to today. A compact cat, with large head and eyes, round. Short coat with fine texture and fluff often.

British is a medium-sized cat to the sea. It reaches between 4 and 8 kg.

She was highly appreciated in exhibitions until the Persian.

After World War, it there was a dramatic fall in the feline in England. Some breeders crossed the Persian breed, but British Shorthair was a stable breed. The resulting descendants could not compete like British Shorthair. Only after three generations of breeding within the breed, the heirs could be eligible for registration as British Shorthair.

After the Second World War, the decline of the race continued. Thanks to the growing Kit Wilson, the race has regained public interest.

The wish of British Shorthair

bicolor britanic

breeders was to reach the original breed without crossing it and succeeding. Up to this point, crosses have been tried with Persians, Russian Blue, Burmese, etc., but the resulting offspring were foreign.

 

Characteristics

She appreciates people’s company but can not be described as a “sticky” cat. She is smart and courageous. Can attract attention to draw attention to her. But provided she is admired from afar (especially from strangers).

She lives well with the other animals in the house if her needs are met. She’s a quiet and quiet friend. A great comrade for children. British

albastru britanic

is a lovely cat.

Health and development

British Shorthairalb britanic

is a sturdy cat. He has a few health problems. Genetic basis and careful growth ensure this.

In the 1970s hemophilia was found in a nest. Responsible growers turned to an expert on cat’s blood diseases. He tested all suspicious cats. He sterilized those affected. This has made it possible to eliminate the disease in the next generations.

The breed matures slowly. The process will be completed every 3 years. Thus cats look good for a longer period, being long-lived.

The kittens are 4-5 on the nest. The cat breeds easily. She loves and caring with them. The kittens open their eyes in less than a week. The third week shows interest in the dry food.

They are very fond of their mother as long as she allows them. He’s always looking for food and affection. They quickly grow in weight and become round, but not fat. Growing, the kittens passes through several non-uniform developmental phases. Growers avoid showing them in exhibitions under the age of 3 years.

Standard

The standard dosen’t describe a live cat; this is an artistic ideal that is never touched by a single cat.

The standard is an objective guide that the referee uses when judging a cat.

The ideal cat is a perfectly proportioned animal with a pleasant look – a sophisticated look of the domestic cat.

That being said, I introduce you to British Shorthair.

The Burma Sacra – another breed under the magnifying glass

 

 The Burma Sacra has an interesting story. Why is it called Sacred? A beautiful story says these cats come from Burma. They are the bearers of the souls of deceased masters on their way to paradise. Sometimes the majority of  the Burma  Sacra cats were Buddhist monks. That is why the cats were given the name “sacred”.

Interesting is also the naming convention of these cats. Most breeders follow the French tradition. Almost all cats born in a year receive a name that begins with the same letter of the alphabet. This becomes useful when calculating the age of the cat.

Short history

sacra breed

 

The modern history of the Burma cat is full of mystery. There are several versions of the origin of the breed. The oldest and most widespread story says cats come from Burma. They are considered the holy companions of the priests in the temples.

In France, the 20-year-old Burma cat was the only (re) known breed cat.

It is said that in 1919 two Englishmen received a pair of Burma. Thank you for helping protect a temple against an invasion.

Another version says an American millionaire has received two cats from a disgruntled servant of the priests. He stole them from the temple.

Whatever the story, these wonderful cats have arrived in France. But the male did not resist the difficult journey. But the female survived and was pregnant. He gave birth to the new chicken. A little girl was mated with a different breed, probably a Siamese. From this small nucleus has been established the Burma breed in the Western world. The breed was officially recognized in France in 1925.

After the Second World War, it seems that only two specimens of pure breed remained. In order to ensure the continuity of the breed, it was accepted the need for crossbreeding with other breeds. This program was attended by Persian and other breeds. The experiment has succeeded and since that time the race occupies the place it holds today in the Western world.

Adaptability

Burma can be defined as

burma sacra breed

“the cat that is always in your way”. They are not as active as their short-haired cousins. And not as phlegmatic as those with long hair. Of course, there are differences within the same race. And between races too.

Burma is a loving being who loves to stay in the master’s arms. Or next to him. She has a tender voice. It’s talked. He draws attention that he needs a company. It is recommended not to be the only pet in the house. If the master is busy, she feels abandoned. He generally enjoys a friend’s company. Another Birman, a cat of breed or a dog.

Burmese are not moody when it comes to food. They are robust, healthy and live relatively long.

Despite all its qualities, Burma is not recommended for children. To choose the best pet for your baby, see here.

Standard

Burman’s “unique gloves” draw the attention of viewers in an exhibition.

But let’s see how it is evaluated.

Body -of medium size, massive and slightly elongated; strong neck, medium size; legs are short and strong, rounded and well-proportioned feet; the male is stronger and more massive than the female.

The head-skull is strong, with round and rounded cheeks; the nose of average length without a stop but slightly lying; chin strong

The ears, , preferably small, widely spaced, do not stand upright

Eyes dark blue, slightly rounded or oval, well-placed, with very little outside corner

The fur on the cheek is short, then becomes longer, on the neck forming a very rich collar; on the body is half-length, on the back and lateral is long; has a silky texture, with a little puff, without being mature

Mid-length tail, elegant and dense

THE GLOVES-the characteristic of the Sacred Bird of Cambria is “white gloves”, which must be completed and pure white; the front paws have white gloves ending in a single line; it must not extend beyond the wrist; the back paws have white gloves, which are stretching back; they climb up to about half the way to “lace”; “gloves” and “lace”, equal to all legs, are highly appreciated

Color-Burma is a cat with a point but differs from other breeds through his paws: all four are white; the point is on the face, ears, legs, tail and genital area; the rest is light, and the back is a golden beige in all variants; the color of the point should be in contrast to that of the body; only at adult the color is finished; kitties are completely whit;

sacra-kitten

 

at different feline associations, for the contest, different colors of the point are recognized.

What you need to know when you adopt the Sacra of Burma

First of all, it should not be confused with the Burmese who is completely different

Burmese

Sacra of Burma is dynamic and playful. But also quiet, gentle, when his master can not give him the right attention. It is a balanced, affectionate, faithful and very sociable animal. These cats are extremely intelligent, attach themselves quickly to their owners and are curious about the yarn. Being smart cats, they almost do not need the master’s intervention, being able to educate themselves.

They adapt easily to new living conditions, so the adoption of such a cat is not a problem.

Males mature at different ages, being able to pair at age 1 or 2 years.

Females have a well-developed maternal instinct, the number of chickens ranging from 3 to 5, who are completely white at birth. Although the points appear in the first two weeks of life, the color finishes much later.

Like any cat pup, at 3 months of age, kittens are weaned and educated for what they need in their mother’s life. They are physically and socially stable. Can be put to adoption.

Life inside, quality food, sterilization, and the provision of scratch surfaces are factors that ensure a long life.

At the age of 18, the Sacred Virgin of Burma has matured. It will continue to grow until it reaches 3 years.

Quality specimens must be mated only with male pedigrees that do not relate to individuals in the female line.

The colors of the breed are seal and blue.

Conclusions

Burma’s Sacra is an excellent companion. Dynamic, playful, tender voice. Sociable, willing to keep company all the time. It’s a sturdy, healthy and longevity cat. She’s a beautiful cat. Specific to this breed is “gloves”. They must be completely and pure white.

Males mature at different ages, being able to pair at age 1 or 2 years.

Females have a well-developed maternal instinct, the number of chickens ranging between 3 and 5.

If, you adopt such a cat, you will have a very pleasant company.

The Balinese breed- breed under the magnifying glass

The Balinese breed is a slender cat. Elegant, refined, medium-sized. With long hair and a thick tail. It has lines that give discreet and well-proportioned shape to the body.

Besides the attention it strives to achieve in any way, a Balinese cat is easy to maintain.

Take a Siamese cat and dress it in a nice fur. You will instantly get the Balinese breed .

The cat is sociable, vocal, playful, curious and intelligent.

Balinese

Short history

Balinese has a relatively recent history. In the middle of the 50s, the breeders were intrigued when a long-haired chicken appeared in the pure Siamese nests. Of American breeders, some were impressed by long-haired Siamese. They have decided to standardize the race. All the necessary steps have been taken to recognize it. At the end of the ’50s, the race was named Balinese. Due to the resemblance to Balinese dancing exotic. With the Balinese years, he won the title of champion at various competitions organized by US cats associations. In 1970 CFA (the largest association in the US) recognizes this breed. But only in the classic colors of Siamese: with the black point, chocolate, blue or purple. Since 1979 CFA also recognizes Balinese with a red point, cream, tabby, and torte, but under the name of Javanese.

Javanese

During the ’70s, the breed started in England too. In 1978 the Balinese Cat Society was established. Race becomes more stable and stronger. FIFE recognized the Balinese and Javanese breeds in 1986. Specimens of this breed have won the title of champion.

At the moment

Balinese, as we know it today, is the result of some great efforts and the dedication of a group of breeders. Short hair Balinese are grown in renowned felines. They are intertwined with quality Siamese to perfect the guy. Cats resulting from this pairing are called Variants. They have short hair and fur has the texture of the plus. They have value invaluable in the Balinese breed growth program. They are carriers of the long hair recessive gene. Transmit the gene when it is mated with long hair baldness or another variant.

How are the Balinese

If you ask someone who has such a cat, what is so special about Balinese, he will answer everything. After that, he will keep a monologue that ends when the speaker is exhausted.

Mother Nature decided that Siamese is already famous, it can increase its fame. Thus, a spontaneous mutation of the Siamese cat appeared. The length of the hair is the only difference between Siamese and Balinese. Siamese has soft and soft hair, and Balinese has a fine, long, silky coat. Balinese has a bushy tail.

Balinese has a single layer of hair without a fluff. Unlike other long hair breeds. The fur is lying down, close to the body, falls naturally and follows the direction of growth.

The cat has a royal outfit and an aristocratic appearance. But also full of life and affection. He is intelligent. Her sapphire-colored eyes shine with untidy curiosity. It has a warmer voice than Siamese and is less charming. Balinese breeders claim their cat is the most elegant and noble of all races.

Balinese is an excellent companion, a loving friend, and a playful partner for the job. They are easily accommodated in a new environment. He understands well with other cats and is ideal as an apartment cat.

Balinese loves his master and engages his soul in everything he does. Either read, cook or wash your teeth. They are very “talked” and can comment on any subject. If the owner is sad, he’s crying with him. If he’s sick, he suffers more like him. If he is happy, he will enjoy and play even more. Balinese love to play.

The boy cats is particularly affectionate and “sticky”.

Proper eating and exercise are essential. The body of Balinese should remain elastic, tubular and silky. The perfect Balinese resembles a silvered steel arch.

Unlike other breeds, many Balinese cats are proud when they reach the ring for competitions. I know how to impose in front of the referees and get under the skin of the spectators.

If the breeder offers you an older chick or an adult, do not hesitate.

young balinese

He has proper behavior and good manners, as he has already been familiar. Easily adapts to a new environment. It will bring a welcome change to the house.

If someone needs a clever, active, “talker” friend, he will be delighted with the presence of a Balinese.

Standard

Head – Sharp shape, long profile; fine but, sharp shape; flat skull; chin/jaws: upper line of the nose parallel to the bottom line of the chin

The ears-wide shape at the base; size: large and wide; preserves the triangular shape of the head

Eyes-form: almonds; size: large; color: blue “Siamese”; it is not allowed that the space between the eyes is smaller than the width of an eye

The neck-length: long; size: thin, elegant, not dropped between shoulders

Body-Shape: tubular, same width at shoulders and thighs; size: medium; bones: fine; length: long; muscles: very firm, well-defined, easy

Tail-shaped: dense, long and fringed, giving the impression of waving; length: in balance with the length of the body.

Legs : long, longer ones than front ones; bones: fine, well proportioned; muscles: farm

Elbows-shape: oval, size: small

Fur-length: half-length hair; texture: fine, silky; density: very little puffiness, long hair, shorter hair allowed only on the head and shoulders

Color-for different feline associations the colors differ; CFA is the only association that limits Balinese to four classic colors and classifies all other colors in Javanese; in some feline associations and in some European independent clubs, long-haired, non-point varieties are called Mandarin

Conclusions

Balinese has blue eyes and half-long hair. Javanese has green eyes and long hair. But if you want a companion, with a pedigree or not, these are cats to consider for adoption or acquisition. It’s easy to maintain. Ideal for the apartment. They are stable enough, physically and socially, to adapt easily to the new environment. They are excellent to keep your company, very friendly and irreplaceable.

As I said at the beginning, the cat is sociable, vocal, playful, curious, and intelligent.

If you thought of taking a cat you will not regret whether you choose a Balinese or her variant, Javanese. Look at her how grateful she is when she makes her remarkable, tail up. How hard he can and he prepares for madness. He has a pride outfit.

If you have suggestions for the things you want to find on my site, do not hesitate to tell me. Let me know what you think and if you have any idea, you can suggest in your comments.

Turkish Angora cat-breed under the magnifying glass

The most appropriate term for defining characteristics of the Turkish Angora cat is “capable”. Smart and powerful at the same time. Caution: don’t confuse Turkish Angora with Angora. The Turkish Angora cat is the original breed. It is the result of Turkish-American cooperation. It called Turkish to distinguish itself from the breed created in England. And which named Angora.

Short history

This cat attracted the attention of the royal houses in Europe. This cat has become a symbol of social status. Although it is one of the oldest breeds, today it is almost unknown. It is the origin of many other races: Persian, Tomorrow Coon, Norwegian Forest. Your views divided into her origins. Some say it pulls out of the western area of Turkey. Around Ankara, whose ancient name is Angora.Turkish Angora

Others think the cat is from the southern Caucasus. From there it spread by merchants’ caravans. Americans believe it comes from the cat, domesticated by the Tatars. They would have arrived in Turkey through their migrations. They brought the little felines with them. The cat has become increasingly rare in Turkey. In the rest of the world almost disappeared. The Turkish government has put the national cat under protection. Thus, the export of Turkish Angora white cats was strictly forbidden. At a national level, those who had this cat called to contribute to her preservation. The specimens collected in the zoo in Ankara. Later in Istanbul. This created the basis for breeding and protecting the breed. But a serious mistake made. Only white specimens tracked. Cats from a white and colored parent are healthier. There is no deafness in the case of chickens coming from only white parents. In the 1960s the Turkish Angora reintroduced into the US. From the zoo in Ankara. The Americans committed to promoting the race. They crossed white specimens with colored specimens. At first, only white copies accepted in the contest. Colored specimens were later recognized and appreciated. Turkey considers this breed a national treasure. It continues to preserved

Character and personality

It has a strong instinctive character and great intelligence. It is perfectly suited to life with a man. But he respects and keeps his personality strong. If the Turkish angora lives in a family, she chooses a person. She will enjoy all her attention. The better it treated, the more it manifests its affection. The more joy it brings to our lives. She likes to always be with that person. But he also asks for more love and attention. Often the cat touches them tenderly with their paws, cheeks. I sit on his shoulder or get to his neck. But they do not lie in the lap. She sneezes and ashes the master if he does. She likes to speak with her beautiful voice. Comment on the owner’s actions all the time. The Turkish Angoraagain Turkish Angora

thinks it’s her duty to get involved in all the house’s actions. The master loved with deep devotion. Instead, ask for the same thing from him. The cat interested in everything that concerns the master. It has to be present, whether it works on the computer or makes it clean in the bathroom. She attends and supervises. It must accepted, even if she sometimes gets confused. Otherwise, the cat will feel injured in her sincere feelings. She participates in all family activities. Turkish Angora has a lot of energy to play. Run through the house with an imaginary prey. It does everything with skill and agility. He climbed onto the kitchen cabinets. It’s a stunning jumble. Take part in all family activities. To keep her in shape she needs movement. She likes high places for sleeping. From there it also has the observation tower. Turkish angora is a very sociable cat. She must have a company. He understands with dogs and other cats. When a baby is born, the cat knows that this is a “human kiss”. She will take care of him. Both female and male are some outstanding parents. The result is healthy and robust kitten. They raise not problems.

Standard

Shape-very well-proportioned in all aspects. Elegant and elastic. It gives the impression of an always graceful move. Males are bigger than females.

 Head-shaped “nail”. Wider at the top, slightly sharpened to the chin. Of medium length. The right long nose, on an easy, no-stop slope. The jaws are narrow, conical.

Big eyes-almond and expressive. Colors is clear and pronounced. All colors allowed.

Ears-long, wider at the base, well covered with hair. They located very high. Vertical and high.

Medium, slim and graceful neck.

The long, slender body with finely and well-defined muscles, perfectly harmonized. Delicate features without deviations or interruptions in flowing lines. The skeleton must be fine.

Long legs, longer ones than front ones.

Small toes, round and tangled between fingers.

Tail-long and thick, wider at the base, thinner at the top. It is well tattered. It held below the body but does not touch the ground.

Medium-length coat with a smooth, smooth texture, slightly wavy on the belly. Does not have a puff; it changes with the season; achieves the best quality after the age of three.

Color – still disputed; White is the traditional color. All colors allowed, including all white varieties.

Turkish Van


A relative of the Turkish Angora cat is Turkish Van.Turkish Van

It’s a very special cat. Both behavior and appearance. They are very loved by the breeders. They characterized by a soft, short, waterproof coat. Being unique in the domestic cat’s world. Extremely active, playful and curious. They are tricky cats. I can get into trouble because it works under the impulse, without too much analysis of the situation. Sometimes they can ruin things in the house or stay stuck somewhere. Precisely because they always have to run, cherish or see something new. These cats are not recommended to those who will order absolute peace in the house. Van Turkish is a non-conformist cat.he Van Turkish breed is also distinguished by the water attraction. In the vicinity of the Turkish lake Van still, there are such felines (which are currently protected). They can observe swimming with the greatest pleasure. Their fur helped them stay dry. Despite their independent character, they will be strongly attached to the masters. Asking for affection and worshiping any kind of play.

Conclusions

If you do not have a cat, but you want one, Turkish Angora or her relative, Turkish Van is advisable. Provided you are totally committed to it. It’s a lovely cat and brings a lot of joy in the house, a lot of love. Elegant, royal, strong and volunteer. Such a moving cat gives the impression of flying. The slender and fine body, followed by the long, with the fringes fluttering. It’s a beautiful cat. You have cared but it is a lively cat and involved in all family actions. For those who want a Van cat, it recommended buying a chicken, the adults being very hard to move from one place to another. It attaches profound to masters and hardly undergoes sudden changes.

Breeds- Blue Cat from Russia

I will present a special breed of cats: Blue Cat of Russia. The classic personality of a Blue Cat from Russia is something special, unique. It is possible that some non-pedigree cats may have the same character traits.

the blue cat of Russia

About the specimens of this breed

Certain requirements imposed on the owner of a Blue cat from Russia. This cat is for connoisseurs. If the requirements met, the cat is a special companion. It has a particular behavior compared to the other breeds. I hope to stay that way. It’s a real cat. She has most of the natural instincts of the felines almost intact.

It’s an intelligent cat. But which cat is not. She is curious, alert, cautious, lively and playful.

It’s a cat for people who indeed love felines. Females are ideal moms, I do not know otherwise cats of race or not. All cats have a special maternal instinct.

It attaches a lot to family members. Instead, he has to give him much attention and love. Must be a friend of the cat chosen. Being vigilant by nature is cautious when a stranger visits the house. She stays hidden until her curiosity conquers. Sometimes they just let go.
If he accepted someone else, he will remember him at the next visit.

Blue cat from Russia is not an insistent or aggressive cat.
It will never need you. You can have full confidence in it.

He instinctively developed “social life”. It depends only on the individual, in part, on the personality of each.

Sometimes they come home with strangers when they are chickens. Sometimes when they are adults.

The origin of the What is definitely known is that in 1912 the first standard appeared for this breed.

Everything about their past circulates all kinds of legends and “versions”. The true origin of Blue Russia will remain a mystery.

One legend says that from the northwest of the Russian Empire, in the middle of the nineteenth century, a feline arrived with commercial ships in Europe. This known as “Archangel cat”, “Maltese”, “Spanish blue,” or “Blue”.

By the 40s the Scandinavians crossed Blue to Russia with Siamese. They have achieved a “diluted” color effect – from black to blue.

In effect, after World War II, the formation of the race we know today begins. The English took care of it and crossed it with Siamese. They introduced a more elegant form, crossing only those with “blue point”.

The quality of the fur preserved like in the times of the empire. It’s extreme velvety.

Eyes, golden or golden, with crossed cats, stabilized in green.

Since 1900, several copies have imported into America. After the Second World War, the followers of these dogs crossed with copies from England and Scandinavia.

Thus, it standardized in the 60s by Russia, as we know it today.

 

the blue cat of Russia 2Standard

The standard differs from one feline association to another in the sense that the score is different.

I will take into account the FIFe standard.

A harmonious cat

Compared with most non-pedigree cats, Blue from Russia is nobler and more elegant. It is very harmonious. The medium waste has a very beautiful head, high legs and long tail. All this creates a harmonious whole. It has no extremes. A closer look reveals the distinctive, distinctive features.

Fur

Blue Russia is a cat with short hair. For this reason, it is sufficient for brushing and caressing. They are also a source of pleasure for the cat. The fur has the appearance and consistency of velvet and silk. When she passes her hand through her fur, she feels soft and a little resilient. At present this seal is almost exterminated precisely because of the coat.

Color is preferred in a darker shade.

The skull is long and flat. The head has the shape of the nail short, unobtrusive. Forehead is long and right. The nose is right. Forms a concave angle with the forehead at eye level. Has strong Barbie and mustache prominent.

The eyes

The eyes are separated from each other. They are particularly expressive. They are green, big and almond. Sometimes the shape of the eyes appears rather round. The eyes are too small, deep or too close.

The first time we see a Blue from Russia, we notice our eyes. Especially when they are green, according to the standard.

The ears


Are large ‘at the base, sharper and positioned vertically on the head. That is, the outer line of the ear must be vertical. It is very important for the ears to have the right width. If they are too narrow, the rabbit ears or the exclamation mark in the crown of the head. Also, your head should be optimal width, because of your ears.

A narrow head would make the ears too close to the base. This is not desirable.

Cat and exhibitions

Personally am against the cat’s presentation at exhibitions. Many years ago I presented two cats at the exhibition. If I knew how much stress it is for the poor cat, I would not have done it.

It is also true for Blue from Russia. Presence in the exhibition involves traveling, sometimes over long distances. You have to sit in a cage, in a huge hall, many cats and strangers.

She has to behave well in the exhibition. She must not look frightened, aggressive, not spit, scream, scratch or bite. It must be kept in mind that the cat will be presented to the jury by the steward and not the master.

It’s no secret that Russian Blue has the reputation of the “inappropriate” breed for exhibitions, especially among breeders of other breeds.

Fortunately, there are specimens that behave well at exhibitions. Cats are unpredictable, so breeders will be challenged by breeding nests according to their behavior.

The best way to find out if a kitten likes exhibitions is to bring him to one. He will take care to give us his opinion.

By its very nature, she is not enthusiastic when it comes to strangers. The thing is more true for Blue from Russia.

Let me take or not a Russian Blue

 

Blue Russia is a cat for connoisseurs. It’s not a cat for anyone. Must be ready for her devotion. You need to prepared to give him more attention and love. Must be your chosen to friend. If Albania’s need for love and attention satisfied, people are no longer interested.

If you think you can meet the needs of Blue Russia, take it. Otherwise, think of another race.

Breeds – cats Abyssinian – standard

This elegant animal is a real aristocrat in the feline world. Her moves, jumps, detentions and landings. Are all done with the grace, ease and elasticity of a rhythmic gymnastics champion.

The cats Abyssinian breed is affectionate and intelligent, oriented, active. He likes to interact and to play, and to be present in every activity the master carries out.

Because of its overflowing energy, the cats Abyssinian  is not suitable for the elderly.

Short history

The views divided on the origin of the breed. Some claim that her origin is not Ethiopia. But most converge to the idea that the breed imported Abyssinia. Through the English armies in India.

The Abyssinian breed is one of the oldest known breeds. Still, there are speculations about her history. The native Abyssinian with the paintings and sculptures of ancient Egypt. They were an elegant feline. With muscular body, neck in perfect bow shape. Large ears and almond eyes. The name of this breed makes us believe it comes from Ethiopia (sometime Abyssinia). But the recent genetic breakthroughs show that Abyssinian origin stems from the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. The first Abyssinian imported from England to North America arrived in 1900. Until 1930, not enough cats were brought in to form a basis for the development of this breed on the new continent.

Pure specimens of this breed do not exist. In England the Abyssinian cats Club has 33 members. And about 170 pure-bred cats entered in the club’s register.

Standard (how to rate in the contest)

Fleece – clear and colored, medium waist and royal outfit, supple. Elastic, well-balanced both, physically and temperamentally, proportionally. She’s a short-haired cat. Males are proportionately higher than females, but they are more active.

Head-mild edges, slightly rounded, without flat surfaces. Eyebrows, cheeks and all lines of a tandem profile. A slight slope along the nose to the forehead, which should be of the right size, with space between the ears. This line continues invisible, elongating in the line of the neck arch.

The Bottom is neither sharp nor very pigmented and not square. The beard should not be too prominent, nor too withdrawn. A permitted exception may occur when it comes to jaws of adult males.

Ears-Very lively, large and moderate pigmented. Wide at the base and conical, worn in the position as if they were just listening. The hair on the ears is very short and smooth. With the tips colored in black or dark brown (reddish red) or wild, brown chocolate (red).

Eyes-They have almond shape, they are broad, bright and expressive. Neither rounded nor oblique. The eyes accentuated by a fine black line, covered by a lighter colored area. Their color is golden or green.

Body-Average length, supple ratio, showing well-developed, but not distressed muscles. Greater importance given to proportions and balance, in general, than simple dimensions.

Feet and paws-proportionally supple, fine bones. Abyssinian stays very stable on the ground, giving the impression that he stands at the top of his toes. The elbows are small, oval and compact, the front legs have five fingers, the four at the back.

Long tail at the base, long enough and sharp. The fur is soft, silky, with a fine texture, but thick, elastic to the touch and glossy, clear, warm and vivid colors.

Colors

Abyssinian is a tabby cat with ornamental specific AGOUTI. “AGOUTI” is a gene that predominates all other tabby genes. Does not allow specific ornamental tabby to appear. The background made up of red, brown and black tufts. Evidence that the cat is tabby we have at our forehead -, M “characteristic). Thus placed, the hairs give the illusion that the cat changes its color when it moves.

The four recognized colors:

RUDDY (light red, orange-brown or wild color) -the color of the dried straw, the puff

RED (color SORREL or CINNAMON, red-brown reddish) – color of the fox, intense brick

BLUE (blue) – an ash-bright, warm and gentle, pigmented with intense blue

FAWN (pink beige) – deer color, beige Matt hot cream circles, and light cream base

FIFE also recognizes the following variants. They are silver, blue silver, sorrel silver and fawn silver (beige).

Somali, variety of the Abyssinian

Fade everything that tempts her. She is affectionate and intelligent. It can teach more everything you ask for. The very discrete-gangster meadow. Somali, the classed long-haired Lynx specimens as a distinct variety. The look is original, chic, elegant. Supple, the sturdy blade, gives her the grace of a big cat. The huge, almond, golden or green eyes give it a unique beauty note.

She appeared as a result of a spontaneous genetic mutation. It has brought through a careful selection of her form today. He has a great coat of fine fur. With thick and silky hair in splendid colors. With a long and bushy tail, Somalia is a wonderful feline.

The puppies get very late, characteristic “ticking”. The final color is only two years old. If you want a Somali, look good on your parents’ fur.

Being of the same breed, the standard is the same as that of the Abyssinian.

Growth and nutrition

The Abyssinian cat is robust and healthy. It resists cold weather in the winter. Consume a lot of meat. Four times a week, cooked vegetables, raspberries, or very delicate salad should added. Thoroughly administer for their vitamin content. In the evenings it can be over boiled, boned or boiled rabbit. Sometimes a porridge with milk can give. Should brushed or brushed regularly.

Arbitration of an Abyssinian

The standard of the breed is very similar from one association to another. Some qualities, yet, evaluated otherwise. So, a cat that participates in exhibitions organized by different associations can get a different score.

Deviations:

· Other color spots

· Long and narrow head, short and round head

· Striped on your legs

· Closed dark collar

· Rings on the tail

· Cold or gray tones in the fur

· White fluff to blue or “fawn”
