I've never really had pets in my life, until my family decided to adopt a tabby/siamese. I thought she was great, until I met my baby Santana! She was less than a year old when I adopted her from the shelter. She was rather shy and wouldn't acknowledge me, until I got her home. She's the prettiest gal I've ever seen. She's been very patient with me, starting my first semester in college, and moving out into an apartment. She used to go outside a lot, but as soon as I brought her to our new place, she knew she owned it (even though I don't quite trust her when it comes to the 3rd story windows). She wakes me up every morning with kisses,and crawls on my chest before bed or when I'm on the couch. When she gets fiesty she bites and claws at my hand for a brief period, then decides to wrap her paws around it and cuddle to sleep. She waits at doors for me to, and has the cutest chirp. At this point in my life, I can never see myself having any cat besides one of these big lovebugs.

    We currently have 5 cats that we love and will take care of for the rest of their life... A year ago however, cat number 6 passed away. He was a Maine Coon named China. He was the most beautiful tabby coon cat in the world! He was Adopted from a Maine Coon rescue group/shelter. He ended up saving our children on several different occasions from scorpion bites, he found them, killed them and then he would alert us of their location. p.s. we live in Arizona. #RIPChina This post is in memory of China Doll our Big Coon daddy. We Love You Bear!

I had two of these cats growing up, at different times. Our original one was a female tabby who was said to have simply curled up in the stroller with me when I was 2 and hitched a ride home from the breeder's. She was very sweet, but an excellent judge of character and could be shy around people she deemed untrutworthy (we found out about them later). Hated my aunt's pomeranian though. She lived to 16. Our second one was a ginger male. He was rescued by us at our old house, but eventually got adopted by another owner.

We found a mouse at krogers a month ago it was cold so we took her home she was sooo hungry and she ate up all the food in our auto feeder...lol. I found out today she is a turkish angora. She's a wonderful lil kitty and she is a blessing in our home. The vet said she is about 8 mos old and is in great health. Her name is mouse because she's timid and cute. Shes not deaf and she's just wonderful! We love her so much I don't want to think what would have become of her had we not found her!

    Gads, I'm not sure but here's what I've found. Serval cats especially need extra calcium for at least the first 2 years of their lives, and basically supplement them just as you would a growing puppy.  A great source is a chicken leg quarter (with the bone) and this is said to be pretty well balanced in calcium and the most well absorbed form. Also adding a calcium powder to their food, like OsteoForm calcium powder works well, as does cottage cheese... an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, protein and vitamins. Good luck!

Hi my name is Heather McGlothlin, Richlands VA. I guess you can say I "adopted" an Angora. She was dropped off the highway at my house as a kitten. She is soooo adorable, her name is Sugar and she is sweet as Sugar. She has one green eye and one blue eye. She is deaf in the blue eye side. I also have Lab/Chow mix dog and they absolutely love each other. They were meant to be together. I found Sugar on July 23rd and adopted the dog on September 30th and she was nine (9) weeks old so when we go back to her birthday it would be the same as when I found Sugar. You put them together and you have OREO's! Sugar loves her toys and is so very sociable. She even knows how to do tricks such as showing her tongue, giving five, begging, sitting, meowing on response! I would love to submit a photo of her to show her off! Thanks soooo much for listening to our story. She will be so happy that people really love her breed!

    Well it is me Heather McGlothlin as of 10-22-2012 my sweet little Sugar went missing! She is the love of my life and will always be the best little ball of fur ever! She learned how to do so many tricks such as giving you five or ten (five two times), turning in a circle, showing off her tongue, begging, laying, sitting, and dancing. My little baby will always be the best thing ever that existed in my life! I love you Sugar Elizabeth McGlothlin--do not ever doubt that for one second!!

We have a Turkish Angora cat, about aged 14, whom we adopted from Humane Society when she was 7. Her fur was in terrible shape, and she was scrawny. Her people had moved and left her at Humane. We scissored the knots out of her fur and let her do her own thing in the condo. She hid under the bed for about a year, coming out at night to eat. Gradually, she has straightened out, fattened up. She is a beautiful cat, blue eyes, LOTS of fur - but very picky. She wants what she wants when and how she wants it, only eats dry food, and will howl for no reason in the day time. I came to this site after searching for 'Turkish Angora howling for no reason!'....it is a pathetic, periodic howl - one would think she was sick or stuck somewhere, but that is not the case. She loves water, and likes to be petted but only in certain places (her chest) and only at certain times (when I am in bed trying to read a book). She resists any grooming, but I have tricked her by using my fingernails instead of a comb. She likes to have secrets - she will go outside on the condo deck, but only if no one is looking...it has to be a secret. If she sees that we see, she runs back in. We have a dog and another cat (also a Humane adoption). Finally, after 7 years here, she begins to try to play with the dog, sniffing him and wanting his attention. By this time, of course, he is more or less indifferent. She will wake us up in middle of night wanting our hands to stroke her - lousy timing. She is fat, but can spring to counter heights. She loves drinking water from faucet. I think she would go swimming if we had a pool. Although she is skittish about many things, she will - inexplicably - suddenly become 'Miss Affability' when guests are here - guests who probably do not WANT white cat hair all over their clothes. Then she enters the living room as though the party is all about her, and parades around, presenting herself. Her name is 'Princess' - probably should be 'Empress'... She is an interesting and inconsistent combo of indifference, seeming fear, social avoidance, self-containment, assertiveness, social, anti-social, dietary mono-kibble. We have taken her boating in Canada - she loves the boat and the ocean. She fell in once, and just paddled around! If we let her, she would leave the boat at night and explore. She did get out once when we were moored at a dock. We were lying in bed, looked up at the skylight, and thought 'there is a cat outside on our deck that looks just like....Princess!' then 'It IS Princess'. We could see her footprints all over the dock and the boat. Her adventure had to be a secret. She had gone out the porthole opening above the kitchen stove. So this is NOT a cat that is fearful in fact. But she sometimes acts that way - one of a kind! but I think a lot of it is the temperament of the Turkish Angora!

    My TA does the same thing. My family and I will just be having a normal day, and he will sit in the middle of a random room and just howl, and howl, and howl..... He isn't hurt or sick or anything (like you said), he just does it for no reason! I have to admit though, it is kinda funny. XP

Most individuals with an animal have driven with them at least once. Very often, pet owners drive around without their animals belted in safely. Only about 17 percent of pet owners use them, however an unfastened animal can be as distracting as texting and driving.

I grew up with cats, but decided I didn't want them in my home because of the hair, scratching the furniture and the thought of a litter box. So, I told my now 17 year old daughter no for at least 2 years. BUT let me tell you....One year ago right now, she brought home this totally white kitten (he and his siblings had been left behind by someone moving away, he came to live with us, the others are on a farm, in a barn to keep mice at bay), litter box, toys and food in hand. At first I said no, you have to take it back, as she did. Two days later, she brought him back, and NOW, I have the ultimate love of my life, this gorgeous Angora cat with the softest blue eyes. We named him Q-tip. He adopted me as Mom, which he should have, as I am the caregiver, litter box cleaner, and buy all of his toys. When my girl goes to college in 2 years, she is somehow thinking she will take him with her, but she will be hit hard with reality when the day comes. He has many nick names, Mitters, Mit Mit, Mittens, Le Purr Le Furr...and on and on. We adore him, as does our Schnauzer. He thinks he is a dog, but you can only love a cat this much with this superb soft fur..He attacks our feet under the covers in bed. We just laugh and stroke him until he falls asleep with us. I am completely in love . I watched a short film of a cat someone had lost, the love of their life, needless to say, now I will take as many pictures of him as I can. There will never be another Q-tip. Wish you could meet him. If you are ever in S.W. Kansas, Come to a town called Hugoton, Mitter Mews and I will be right across from the hospital....On Jackson street.
