I have a Turkish Angora too. I have had no problems with him and litter boxes, but I have recently brought in two feral cats who did have problems that way, which briefly caused the Angora to become inconsistent and start peeing about the place too. Someone suggested I get a pheromone 'cat calming' diffuser. Feli-way from the vet, or Nutri-vet Pet Ease (for cats, there is a dog version too) from a pet shop.(Cheaper than the Feli-way.) Also comes in a spray. I was sceptical, but this did work. I used the Nurti-vet. All of the cats stopped inappropriate peeing within 24 hours.

Your Angora is likely traumatized due to his background so 'scent marking' your room, to make sure it is claimed as his own. Hope this soon stops. Keep reassuring him and showing him to box. I am sure it will soon stop. The spray and diffusers do work.

    Turkish Angoras can be free to upwards of $800.  The higher prices is based on show quality of the Turkish and its awards.

My 6 yo white turkish angoian died 10/16 and I have been heart broken ever since. I got him when he was 5 weeks old and spoiled him to no end. I bathed him brushed him slept with him, played in the yard with him while he was on his leash. He loved going out on his leash and would get it for me. He loved the snow and would sit and watch the rain outside his favorite window. I truly miss him. I was surprised to read of how many are deaf. Amadeus (aka Buttons/Gato Loco) was definitely not deaf and would appear from where ever if he was called. If anyone knows of a kitten available please feel free to contact me.

    Jacquie, I wanted to express my condolences on the loss of your Angora. I too had a Turkish Angora as white as a newly fallen snow. He had one amber and one blue eye. His name was Cutimus Maximus because he was cute to the max! Oddly enough he too died in the early morning hours of October 16th, 2011. I found his body in one of his favorite resting spots. My heart is broken over his passing just as yours is over Amadeus. I wanted to let you know there is a heart defect that can cause sudden death in Angoras between the ages of 2 and 6 that is what I suspect took my Maximus. I hope you find a new companion even if it is not a Turkish Angora. - Karen

    I am so sorry! I know how it feels to lose a pet. I was so heartbroken when my 7 month old cat managed to get outside and he got hit by a car.

From the comments listed already I've come to the conclusion that my kitty is indeed a Maine Coon. She's fiesty, 15 years old now and still plays :) she has a snowy white tummy and a gorgeous block calcio pattern on her back. I was wondering, about how long does this breed live? I've had her since I was 2 and I know she is old and that I need to prepare my self for her death. But she is still quite healthy, I look forward to any answers!

    They say on an average the maine Coon will live between 12 and 15 years but many have healthy lives longer than that.  Enjoy.

We have two Devons (boy & girl - siblings) and I honestly don't know why anyone would want any other type/breed of cat, dog (or animal for that matter). They're amazing. The cutest, most loving animals I've ever come across. We absolutely adore ours. They are naughty - kitty in monkey's clothing is right, but that's part of their appeal and I defy anyone to get even slightly annoyed with something jumping on your table that's that cute! They are VERY they know exactly what they're not allowed to do (whether they care is another question:). I was always a dog person & now I honestly can't explain why. These guys are awesome. Besides not having to potty train or bath them constantly, they're just as loving & human oriented. The boy especially (although the girl is super smoochy also). He's a lap slut lol If you even half-sit down, he's on it, hanging around your waist if you haven't quite got there. And he gets so smoochy sometimes, he properly hugs you (paws around/nuzzling into your neck). Also loves visitors (more laps to sit on). The girl (who's the most beautiful creature I have ever seen - white with chocolate points, she looks like a little curly-haired mini-sheep & has a coat softer than angora) loves my husband. Follows him around like a love sick teenager, meowing at him until he picks her up. Oh - and they also fetch & love paddling in water (in the sink) :-) They're cats - how brilliant is that?!!

A serval is not going to eat a baby! Their game is usually small rodents like mice. A serval is an exotic cat but don't think of it as a tiger or lion! Do your research on them before you post... and I suppose you are against dogs too because there are cases where they have attacked babies.

    I own 2 servals and they are the most compassionate animal I have ever owned.They are not able nor would eat a child or baby.Maybe bite one if unattended but a domestic cat or dog will also.These cats are very much like a domestic cat they do have some traits such as the sounds of a wild cat but thats about it.My grandchild plays with both of these cats and has never been hurt by either.

    Hi Kali,  I don't believe it is an age thing in any of the states.  However, some states do require that you have a permit or Fish and Game License to own one.  You can call Fish and Game for the state you live in and ask them if a permit/license is required and if so what you have to do and requirements you have to meet to obtain one.  Have fun

Where can you get this cat?

    Easy way to get started is just look up on the Internet Serval Cat breeders - Serval Cats for sale. There is a magazine on CATS called Cat Fancy and they have a list of breeders in the back in the classifieds. You can start by calling breeders in your area - most breeders know where you can purchase a particular breed of cat and that way you have a recommendeation. Cat shows.

    I don't even think they should take 'Servals' out from the wild! It's just mean!
  • Kali - 2012-06-26
    Yeah but it would be cool to have one.

We have two Devon boys both brothers, but so different in their natures. One loves to be with you in the toilet, cooking, washing and in your bed. The other brother wants to be outside all the time and cries till you let him out. Which could be 2am or 4am!!! They love to talk to you. My children think it is funny. They expect their food to be there in the morning when they get up, if it's not there they will come looking for you to ask why it's not there for them. Then they jump at you to make you get their food. They are fussy eaters only like tuna. One loves raw meat and the other cooked meat. It's funny they are like chalk and cheese. The one boy loves to get into our bed and sleep under the quilt, the other cat loves to be with my 11 yr old daughter he just loves her(that's the one who likes to be outside) they sleep together, he has his head on her pillow and his body under the quilt. The one who loves to be inside loves to give you love bites on your hand or cheek and gives us smooches at 2am!!! There is so much I could write about them, great family cat if you have kids, we have 4 so they get lots of attention.

ROSIE - 2008-04-06
I have two Scottish Folds who are brothers. They are both neutered. One of them has the folded-ear gene (Milan), and the other has normal ears (Lenny). They are extremely sweet and playful. Lenny is a lot more "hyper" and active than Milan. Sometimes Lenny bullies Milan, which makes me sad, but for the most part they get along well. They will play together and take naps together. Getting two littermates was the best decision I have ever made because they keep each other company while I'm at work. They are both pretty needy and require a lot of affection and time with their human. My only problem is that Milan has the stiff back as a result of faulty breeding. I bought them from a breeder who was a retired veterinarian, but I guess that doesn't guarantee quality breeding stock. They cost A LOT of money, but they are the sweetest guys ever. I highly recommend the Scottish Fold breed.

    It doesn't matter how much they cost , they're worth it!
  • Catherine - 2012-05-04
    I'm thinking about getting myself a fold quite soon. I was just wondering why do you say they cost a lot of money.
  • linda - 2012-05-21
    there are sadly some people that dont take breeding seriously, and a breed like scottish fold are only for people who realy care for their health, only using the healthiest cats in mating and NEVER uses fold on fold. here in norway there are about 16- 17 scottish folds in the country and all are very healthy:) and they will stay that way as long as we plan the mating carefully , and uses the best lines:) you should never buy a fold to a low price that is under the normal price, that can mean the kitten has bad lines. my breeding kitten from germany cost me 1200 euros pluss some money for the flight ticket. but l got 200 euroes diskount, because we were two from same country who wanted to buy;)
