I had lost my very best friend, a Black Smoke named Radar. We found out he had diabetes. I wouldn't accept it and did what ever it took to heal my buddy. Between a diet change and insulin we had an extra two years with my friend until it got the best of him and his kidneys failed. I was heartbroken and devastated, I really fell apart over his loss. So about six months down the road my sister in law and brother in law show up with this little black?...kitten. They said enough suffering, and Harley came into our lives from a shelter. They adopted him in my name and gave him to me, not to replace Radar, but add to our live's and bring me back. I started to see though as he grew he seemed more oriental than anything else. So..I started looking online for information....starting with Black Oriental's. He almost fit the bill, but not quite. My daughter posted a link on Facebook about black Orientals and related cats. It was my wife who found the link to him being a Havana Brown....and the more I dug, the more he fit the bill perfectly, except his eyes....they were gold and not really green. But in a recent search I found on the Cat Breeds Encyclopedia site, that gold eyes are common as well. So that clinched it......he fit the mold in every way. He is a precious jewel and he makes me laugh all the time.....chatty, bossy at times and fearless (except when other people are around! LOL!) He loves to dive under the covers and doesn't miss a trick.....notices EVERYTHING! My wife and I are so happy he came into our lives. He truly is special. A very handsome fellow I might add as well!! LOL!

Dixie - 2014-03-10
A beautiful tri colored cat came to my door for breakfast this morning and he stayed - doesn't seem to want to leave. He's litter box trained and very comfortable with me and my pomeranian dog. I've contacted our shelter and animal control to let them know where he is? If his people are looking for him? He's skinny and ate all Gizmo's blue buffalo grain free tiny bites. I'd love to keep this cat but need a good source of kitty info as I've never been owned by a cat before. The vet is coming to see him tomorrow to check his health and give him shots. He seems to be in good shape except for underweight and his back paws are very dirty.

    I used to do a lot of fostering...birds, cats and dogs. I just rescued a 3 week old kitten during a deluge. Poor thing was hypothermic. Anyway, if you have any questions, feel free. Hope your girl is doing well! Frankie

    I noticed you called the tri-colored cat that adopted you a 'he'. Tri-colored or 'calico' cats are most often female. If yours does turn out to be a male, he will be sterile.

    Cats are great at grooming their fur, so really don't need bathing. But the Turkish Angora, like other long-haired cats, should be brushed weekly.

    So very sorry to hear of the death of your beloved cat.
  • Rosebud - 2011-10-13
    Anonymous and Renata: So sorry you lost your friends, but may I urge you and every cat owner to please, please keep them indoors for life so your losses are not repeated. I have had cats all my life and kept all indoors only. Eventually one loses them to illness or old age, but they live safer and longer lives indoors. Please, fellow kitty-lovers, keep them alive and inside!
    Adopted a 4-month old Russian Blue, had him altered at 6 months yesterday. He is a riotous little scoundrel, playful in the extreme, hugely affectionate, and chronic purr-er, chow-hound, and rock-and-rolling wrestler with my 3-year old Tonkinese. Sleeps on our bed, cuddling and chasing toes. Has demolished a number of glass and pottery items thus far, zooming and leaping around with his buddy. Has a Siamese head, those little mauve toes, quite small and will probably remain small-ish. We named him Boris, but call him BB (Boris the Brat), and he is just a total delight and a wonderful example of his breed.

    Hello I know how you feel I have a silver bengal and a russian blue. My silver bengal got hit by a car last year due to someone accidently letting him out. after alot of money nd love he is where he is today a happy healthy kitty. I rescued my russian blue due to my neighbor moving and leaving her behind which no one knew about for a week till the landlord went over there so I took her and loved on her and now she is a healthy loving and very rambunctious baby in my eyes.

Siamese cats are originally used to battle snakes in their homeland. They will efficiently get rid of them, their quick responses helping them avoid the bites, but do not kill and ‘show off’ like other cats would. I have passion for them))

Have a look

Hi I have a cat. It is just like he likes to scratch things a lot. I want to declaw him but then what if he can't climb on to sofas or stuff like that?

    If you have your cat declawed, he will be perfectly fine cuz he can jump on the sofa, bed etc. He just won't be able to destroy things. If the cat is an outdoor cat - then you might wish to reconsider. If he stays oin the home, on the porch etc - no problem. However, if he is out and about walking the neighborhood, he won't be able to climb trees.
  • Sharon - 2012-04-19
    I DO NOT recommend you declawing your pet cat for several reasons. Scratching is a cat characteristic and if they are unable to do this, they could compensate with fierce biting and you can't vry well pull ther teeth. Declawing a cat could cause elimination issues because their feet can no longer tolerate the feel of the cat litter on their sensitive feet. Declawing a cat could cause behavioral problems since it is an extremely painful procedure, one compared to torture. The first joint of the cat's toes are cut off, not just the claws. It would be as if someone had cut your fingers off at the first joint thus the connection in behavioral issues and declawing. You would never be able to let your cat outside because it would have no way of protecting itself against other animals. As long as your have scratching toys for your cat such as a cat tree and treat them with cat nip on these toys, you should have no problem with the cats claws. The other issue is with declawing, the cat runs a high risk of hemmoraging, (heavy bleeding) at the site of the declaw. Myself personally, I would never put a family member in that kind of pain.
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-04-20
    They do have a laser procedure now and the cat won't actually know the claws are missing!
  • zookeeper - 2012-05-26
    I have 3 cats all declawed, all climb trees with ease, catch mice, chipmunks and even rabbits. They still think they are scratching the furniture, but no damage is done. I live in a rural area. All my declawed cats have lived a long life 16 - 20+ years.
  • Rebecca M - 2012-06-12
    Declawing is a very controversial subject and one some are obsessively vocal about. I had a talk with my Vet and he declaws all of his cats. He says the procedure has come a long way and its no where as painful as it once was. Also how is declawing any different than spay or nuetering? Or in other words, why is it ok to spay and nueter (the cat is put to sleep, cut open, has vital body parts removed, stitched back up and given pain meds) but not okay to declaw a cat that shreds thousands of dollars in furniture and leaves you bloody every time you play with them. I think people who are so adamantly against deckawing will always have a 'soapbox' ready on many subjects. I, personally, me, myself feel it is okay to declaw uour own cat if it will always remain an indoor cat. But everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Just dont force yours down my throat.
  • A bengal owner - 2013-11-13
    A cat doesn't need its uterus or testicles to live a happy normal life. However scratching is a natural and important part of a cats life... they use scratching to mark their territory and to climb. Declawing is the same as clipping a bird's wings so it can never fly again. If you declaw a cat you are handicapping it.... like removing a human's fingers. It is sad to see some people (in the US mostly?) still think this procedure is excusable for pathetic reasons. Preventing inappropriate scratching is a matter of training and providing scratchers for kitty. Declawing (Onychectomy) is mutilation and the rest of the world have made it illegal for good reason. No matter how advanced and ''progressed'' this procedure may have become the after effects on a cat's well being, happiness, confidence and behaviour cannot be discounted.

    Taylor Please do not have your cats declawed, it is dangerous. There is a new product that we use on all 6 of our cats called Kitty Caps nails for cats and you get them through Petsmart  either online or in their business. They have different sizes and different colors to choose from. We use pink and purples for our females and blues and reds for the boys. They're so cute... and healthy... they're easy to apply. And they last for weeks. They can't tear your furniture up because the caps are made of soft plastics. Go check them out..    Taylor..if you declaw your cat it will cause different types of damage to his feet. To declaw him they don't remove the nails they cut the toes off.. it will be like you having your fingers cut off at the first knuckle past the finger nails.. and it is extremely painful. It will destroy their paws.. and if they were to ever get out for any reason.. they would never be able to fend for them selves. That is their only protection againt other critters. Anyway please check into the cat caps .. you will be pleased.

    Soapboxers out in full force here. You guys are full of it... Just like the 'only adopt' soapboxers. All of my cats have been declawed. None of them experience a single problem. I had ONE cat that was not declawed and he shred almost everything. One single cat out of 6 over the years, and he destroys my favorite couch. Everything that he could work his claws on, he did. If you want an indoor cat, and don't want your stuff ripped to shreds, you can disregard the soapboxers, they only want to beat a drum.. And they would love for you to beat it too.

    cats NEED their claws, they need them for balance, to mark terriorty to feel safe, they won't even use the litter box correctly! if you get them declawed you'll have a biting scared cat on your hands.cat owns should know that cats have claws and if they dont have posts to scratch on they wreck your couchs and walls, but surgiclly taking off finger nails is wrong! i suggest every cat owner who is thinking about getting their cat declawed watch the paw project on netflix.
