I am an avid cat lover. I have three house cats now. They have all been fixed. I would love to be able to have a Fox Face cat/kitten. They are just beautiful to me. I'm not wealthy and if I could obtain one (preferably female) at a cheap price or even free would be great! Please contact me.r

Help! I have a mixed breed Bengal cat, 2 yrs old. She is a good cat and very beautiful. Her Dad was a neighbor tom but her Mom is a pure breed Bengal. Here in Vermont, she starts getting bored not wanting to go out. I also have a very gentle domestic 4 year old cat. When the bengal is bored, she constantly attacks my domestic cat to play but she hurts. I try to play with her but she doesn't sheath her claws and scratches and bites - the cat and me! She isn't mean, just very rough. Any ideas on how to keep her occupied and/or how to teach her to play gentle? I have all kinds of toys, long feathered chasers, squeaky mice, balls, scratching posts, etc, but she will jump beyond the toy to my hands and arms. I even got a 'glove' with long fingers and bells to play with and she leaps above the glove to my arm and hand and bites and scratches me. Both my domestic cat and myself would appreciate any ideas on how to keep her tame and occupied during the snowy winter months as well as improving her gentleness with play. Thanks!

    I would de claw the cat and us the cat spayed or neutered.

    I had a wild bobcat tabby mix when I was younger who acted the same way. While having the Bengal de-clawed may stop her from scratching the fire out of you, it won't stop her from biting. The best thing I found for my wild mixed fuzzball was a medium sized stuffed animal. He would knock that thing around the house for hours. After he was done rough housing he would curl up on my lap to nap and purr for the rest of the evening.

    I have an f2 Bengal female that is a year old and unaltered with a full set of little daggers (ie claws). In any event, she was a bit aggressive and elusive when I first brought her home, however she has established herself as the dominant cat in the household (I have 2 domestics and the 1 bengal). I had to wrap her in a blanket and use the pedipaws pet nail filer on her nails every couple weeks when I first got her due to her need to sharpen them to the finest of points. The blanket was to keep me from getting torn to shreds as it took a bit for her to get used to the nail filer. I have cut too far with nail clippers before, so I have been filing kitty claws since. My girl bit me a couple times when I first got her as well, however I bit her back and she hasn't bitten me in the last five months (I've had her for 7 months now). I have done this in the past with random stray cats that I've rescued and socialized for others. You don't bite them hard, and you want to make sure its on the ear so you are out of biting range and don't get a mouthful of fur. Just apply some pressure as a warning; no bruising or drawing blood. They understand biting with a little pressure as a warning. I use water in spray bottles to establish off limit zones (kitchen table and counters). It seems to work well enough... although I am sure my cats are on the counter when they know I am not looking. As for the play issue, I have two male neutered cats (a 1.5 yr old and a 2.5 yr old). Both are declawed in the front as well. I got my bengal to help save my older cat from the newer one as he is a spaz. My girl is energetic, but she has the boys to run around, a lazer pointer to chase, tons of kitty toys, and there are nightly drag races up and down my hallway. Cats are pretty intelligent, and will figure out the source of movement so I have found the glove toys ineffective with my domestic boys and have it dangling from elastic that I sewed onto it. I can toss it and pull it so you get the chase with the distance to flee the claws. If you can't deal with the biting, you may need to find a trainer or alter her to see if that solves your problem. I also don't lock my cats up at night. I know the people I got my Bengal from caged her up at night in a 5 X 8 bathroom at night or a travel kennel. She wasn't socialized too well, so I expected bad behavior from her when I got her. She gets grumpy with the boys sometimes, but she is not hurting them and pulls her claws. I use pounce kitty treats to reinforce good behavior as well as lavishing attention on all the kitties while I am studying. I don't know if this has come of help soon enough, hopefully you find it helpful. This also works for ferrel cats to be socialized.

    I have a similar problem with my female bengal. I also have an old Maine Coon who is the most mellow cat I've ever owned, and when Miss Mauli gets bored she will 'entice' him to play by beating the daylights out of him. No blood drawn but it is sad to hear him scream like a girl. Try a laser pointer with your Bengal, they love movement and should chase it non-stop. Also you might put a couple inches of water in your bathtub or a basin and float a ping pong ball or a couple ice cubes in it. Bengals tend to be fascinated with water and things that float. My cat used to throw her toys in the toilet before I trained that behavior out of her. Also they get bored with the same toys after a week or so, so put the old toys away occasionaly and then bring them out one at time to restimulate interest. The more you entertain and challenge your Bengal intellectually the happier they and you will be in the long run. Good luck!

    What is with the guy suggesting getting a cat declawed? That is the worse thing you could do. Please research the internet for yourself. Other than that, your bengal requires MUCH attention from YOU, the owner. They love their people. You can play with them with toys such as Da Bird, a cat tree for them to climb on, etc. It sounds like your bengal isn't stimulated enough and will resort to this kind of playing. Bengals are smart. Try putting your bengal in a seperate room with his own litter box, toys and food when he goes after your other kitty. Leave him in the room for a couple of hours each time he does this. This will also give your other kitty time to destress from the attack and spend one on one time with you.

    Actually, I changed my mind. Declawing a cat is probably the best thing if it's an indoor cat. I don't actually even own a cat. I have 4 dogs and I thought it would be fun to troll all the cat owners. Here I espouse the evils of declawing and on other sites I lament breeding animals on purpose while so many animals die in shelters.

    I have two Bengals and one calico. It was a rough time. The cats settled score.

    When showing my cats at shows all over, I still hear such talks, for people don’t know Bengal cats. On the contrary, they may have heard of homegrown mini-leopards, but have never seen them. And those who have, have also heard about the myths concerning their ‘bad temper’ or even ‘aggressive behavior.’ Add to it all the relatively high cost for kittens (among the top 10 according to the Forbes magazine) and you get a lot of misinformed people.

I adopted a siamese cat almost three years ago and I love the little bugger <3 She's spoiled rotten, of course, because I can't refuse her anything. I feed her soft food, I brush her, I wash her to keep down her dander (my stepfamily is allergic to it) and she has two toys to date (I've only recently gotten a job to be able to buy her toys). She loves attention from my family and guests, and when the light goes off at bedtime, she's always curled up right against me. I couldn't ask for a more loving companion, and I'd do anything for my little baby. Being the runt of the litter, she's still very small and probably always will be, but I am trying to fatten her up a little with frequent feedings because all too often people comment about how slim she is.

    It's normal for a siamese cat to be slim. I have a Tigamese named Sebastian. He is fat but that's due to the fact that his momma was a tiger cat. Your cat being slim has nothing to do with how much or how little you feed it.

Hy, I had beautifull TUA male Unkas, born 08.10.2009., He was 6 y and 3 m old when he passed away this Sunday, 17.01.2016. .He was purchased from the famous catery in Prague with all papers, healthy ,adorable,always so acive, playfull.Then,suddenly this Sunday morning he fell in the kitchen and was instantly dead.It was horrible, we were all completely shocked as he was only 6 years old and in perefect health, or so we thought,but certainly there was not a sign that something was wrong.So why he collapsed without any prior symptom leaving us in such pain and sorrow, I just could not comprehend. Does anyone has any clue to this,I would say, mystery. Desperate owner

Hi, Recently my Turkish Angora passed away, he was eleven years old. To fill the void I am missing I'm in search of a new companion. I request that my cat/kitten be a male, and all white. I don't have a prefence to eye color. I will NOT declaw my cat. I don't have any other animals in my home and my ten year old boy was raised to love and respect all living creatures. I am located in Milwaukee Wisconsin and will drive to meet/pickup my new member of our family. I am not a breeder or will have my cat in any "cat" shows. I appreciate the beauty and personality of the Angoras and that is why I'm in search of a pure breed. Please contact me if anyone has any information regarding a kitten/ cat that is ready for adoption.

Pretty good story, but the price information is somewhat out of date. As in way low. I have been breeding Tonks for many years, and last year (2012)we lost too much money selling them for $600 each. We only want to break even--we are a tiny, closed, non-show but still pedigree cattery, and I'm not posting our web site, 'cause this isn't about advertising. Plus, our wait list is already getting too long. :) We get a lot of people from both coasts, and oddly enough, Chicago too, where the price for a pedigree Tonk runs $1K - $2K, and the sky can be the limit. BTW, my very first Tonkinese lived to be 23 years old! In my experience, the more sturdily, stockier built cats tend to be healthier and live longer. If anyone knows of an actual pedigree Tonkinese kitten for only $400 I would definitely like to hear about it. (at least 6 generations Tonk only; mating a Burmese & Siamese does not meet the current definition) Thanks and good wishes to all!

    Thanks so much for the updated info on the price of these little beauties. And awesome that you devote yourself to this wonderful breed!

    I got my first Tonk in 1971, which was the product of a Siamese/Burmese breeding.  I had grown up with Siamese and loved the color of the Burmese and had always hoped to get one; so, when I saw an ad in the paper for the Siamese/Burmese kitten for $15.00, I jumped on it and brought home my first Tonk (not knowing it at the time).  He lived to be 14 and I have always had one ever since.  My second one cost me $300, and 15 years later I paid $1,000 (in 2005) and I live in NH.  So, I agree that the price is way off and in the northeast, it is difficult to even find a breeder as they are few and far between; but for me, there is no other breed, so I go to cat shows semi regular to try to keep up on who is breeding in my area, so when the time comes, I can find another one.  In my opinion, the Tonk got the best of both worlds from their Siamese and Burmese ancestry and are the most loving cat with personality plus.  I hope to never be without one.
