He's very playful and loves attention, contrary to what I had been told...that persians r very lazy and will jst sit there and not make u feel loved

He was obviously somebody's baby at one time. But male cats tend to get thrown out of the house when they mature and start spraying.

Oh my, he is a beauty! Are you in the States now? If so, will be easy to find a place to get him neutered. Please keep us updated

Yup. I am in US now. I miss my cat. My sister sent me some of his pics that I wanna share with you guys.









He's seems to have gained since I last saw him. Pretty happy cat, he. Hope u like the pics

What breed do you guys think he is, just by looking? Since I found him abandoned, I have no clue if he is pure bred or mixed.

He was in miserable condition..matted hair..under weight...extremely scared. I decided to take him to the vet. Asked the vet to wash and groom him and check for any disease. Turns out he's alright except for being a little under weight and a few bruises from fighting with other cats. Got him last night and he is so amazing. First thing he did when i took him out of the pet cage was to go around me once..and straight to my lap..no questions asked..no hesitation. Later on I was sitting in my bed and he came and tugged on the bed sheet...i lifted it up a little and he went straight in and cuddled and dozed off..lol. This morning I was reading the paper and he jumped onto my lap..He's such a fuzz ball. Here r some pics:











He's addicted to sitting in the lap so whenever he sees me sitting on the couch for more than a minute..he comes running. Cute but cud be a little problematic in the long run

I am so happy yet at the same time...in the heart of my hearts..judging by how he is behaving..he was someone's center of universe..he obviously has been raised with a lot of love and affection to be used to sleep in the bed and always jump onto the lap..and I jst can't figure out why someone wud ever abandon such a cute kittke..I dont know if his previous owner moved or what..but whatever the case maybe..it sure as heck wouldn't have been an easy decision to let him go.



PS: By the way, i did ask the doc if he had seen this cat b4..to contact his owner..jst in case. He said he'd never seen it besides he said it's very hard to keep a tab on cats like tht.


Anyway guys..first time persian/long haired cat owner..tips/advice/words of wisdom? I brushed him this morning..he ran off with a little meow and then went belly up a few feet away..that was so funny.


PPS: Doctor said he looks like abt 14 months old..what do u guys think? Will he grow any bigger? How long does it take for Persians to reach full size. And b4 anyone says..I have no proof to back my persian claims..he jst looks like one to me..lol.

I also need to name him..so u can suggest names too. Sorry for the haphazard manner of the post..hard to be coherent..so excited.
Wow, you are lucky big time. If he is as sweet as he is beautiful, you've just hit the kitty jackpot.

He does appear to be a doll-faced Persian. He has the short legs and the face.

He also resembles Angoras and Maine Coons, in terms of the appearance and length of the hair, and the hair tufts on the side of the face and in the ears... of course, Persians are related to Angoras and Maine Coons, so it may just be that.

A beautiful cat.

Here he is about a year and a half after we rescued him from the streets.

Yeah. He's in Pakistan. I am visiting here during Christmas break. I would like to take him with me but I am not sure if it's worth the quarantining hassle. I've heard horrible stories from a friend who tried to bring her dog from Hawaii to mainland.

I think coming into the country isn't all that hard. Are you sure you weren't hearing about going from the mainland to Hawaii? That is very difficult, requiring a 6-month quarantine. But coming into the U.S. mainland is pretty easy, if you have the correct inoculation records, mainly rabies.

Someone else here is probably an expert on shipping in from overseas and can fill you in.

If no one here knows (and I'll bet they do), you could probably e-mail www.bestfriends.org and they'll know what it takes.

Thanks mrblanche. I am pretty sure it was from Hawaii to mainland. I'll ask again when I go back in Jan just to be sure. My cat is inoculated and I have certificates from my vet for that. I'll do some digging on the website you mentioned.

My only concern is that taking him with me to US would deprive my mom of very good company. He sleeps with her and she's very much used to him. I suspect my mom and sister would put up more resistance on his move than the US Customs.

Off-topic but anyone know the proper name for his color? I was told it is Tuxedo but the black in his hair is more grayish than proper black. Also would like to know if there is a name for the black and white pattern on his head.

Thanks.
