5 month Somali pics

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Here are pics of Kingston at 5 months old. His coat is slowly but surely coming in. His tail has gotten nicer and so has his color. He has a little more coat on his chest but still has a long way to go.

Be patient - he is getting better - that tail will be great Agree he's still on the light side, but he is a red and should darken to correct coat when he's full grown.

Guess the reds are more tricky. More ruddys out there cause of their darker coats But he is looking very nice.

When is his 1st show?

Might have to wait on Abymummy's opinion - she's getting ready for a big show this coming weekend and may not see this

Will have to show Charlie, Sadie's pics - I really like that one

Question - at the base of her tail is she heavily ticked? Charlie has so much ticking at the base its hard to tell the first few spots

Ocicats are pretty darn cute, thats for sure, but Bengals are heaven on earth. In person, I think my Simba boy is the most breathtaking cat I've ever seen.

Sorry I'm late!

Well, there you go! The coat's coming in right along, you can see the ticking already! The tail will be wonderful! I'm still not too happy with his muzzle but that will fade once he's an adult and gets some jowls. I love the breadth of his chest. Maybe another couple of months before we see a full coat I think.

You may want to get your hands on House of Anju Mahogony Gold Shampoo to bring the red up a bit if you're showing him any time soon.

His muzzle is pinched but that has to do with the extreme type he is. I love his ears but I think I would rather have a moderate muzzle. I agree it will be a couple months before we see a full coat. He is very slow to mature. As for the shampoo the breeder tells me not to use it because Kingston has the color and is still getting darker. Do you know where I can buy that shampoo I wouldn't mind having some handy tho?

I've seen that line of shampoo at the cat shows. But you could check online with some of the pet supply places or type in the company's website and find it. Try Jefferspet.com - that's the place I found Charlie's shampoo that Nancy recommeded me to use on him.

Any breed that I have seen photos of!
Where do I begin?
Ocicats
Bengals
Somalis (new one)
Abys
Ragdoll
Siamese
Russian Blue
Maine Coon
I am sure that I will think of others as I see more photos..

In addition to my "choice" dilemma, I have huge guilt between rescue and purebred...
Also choosing a breed that will get along with Sophie and Mollie....I think Mollie will be good with any cat/kitten, but Sophie tends to be a bit "sensitive" - she sort of went in to an aloof phase when I adopted Oliver and I felt so guilty!
I think she is psychic and knows that I am thinking of bringing in another addition sometime over the next few months, because she has become my best buddy - she is always beside me, has become incredibly playful, etc. I think she is saying "Meowmmy, you don't need anyone else but us...please don't do this to us - no new kitties!"

House of Anju is as rare as gold dust round these parts - only sold in Hong Kong and even that only at the one shop I believe! I'll be getting my show agent to buy me some at the next show (April 14) in Hong Kong and even that I have to pre-order. I got my current stock from a friend in the Philippines. It works great!

For our cats (Abys and Somalis), we don't really need to overdo on the coloring, too much and you lose the much wanted ticking! I only use it to bring up the ruddy on some of my lighter coated cats. When you have 5 ruddy abys, all show-able color differences do tell!

I also use it on my Norwegian, Lou who is looking a bit creamy and not red...

I KNEW as soon as posted that I would hear from someone about the order of the breeds on the list. It was all "stream of consiousness" - mainly remembering all the beautiful pictures that I should never be looking at!: I should have alphabetized them!

Are you sure?

I read this wrong when I wrote it, I took it as she should have known that some one would say some thing about the order and your abbys would be first, I didn't notice she said that she should have put them aphibetical, DUH! Sorry.

My raggies are fun enough for me (and many others) Have you ever owned one to base this on? I haven't had an ocicat so I won't say they are less fun since I have no place to say so. But.......
I have to admit if I didn't have my rags I would probley have ocicats, we see one on a cat show and he won it, my dh said if I ever wanted to change breeds to them it would be fine with him.
