Black Siamese or Havana Brown or Black Oriental

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
A beautiful young black cat followed Benji and I home on Saturday. It has a voice like my Siamese Kotton and looks EXACTLY like a Black Panther. He looks like someone took a shrinking gun and shrunk down a Black Panther! He does have some white hairs here and there but otherwise is solid black, shaped like an oriental shorthair - LONG and LEAN and WELL MUSCLED and never stops talking! He is fine with my girls BUT he does NOT like Poor Benji who would love to be friends with him!

He also has black whiskers!

Can anyone figure out what breed he is? I have NEVER seen a more loving cat in all my life. He rubs against me and turns inside out and purrs up a storm when I pet him.

Gee wish my own beloved cats did that! <sigh>

Forgot to say, I cannot keep him as I do not have money and he has a collar and bell on so I have put fliers up all over saying found cat - has on collar with Bell. I am going out again with MORE flyers when the temps drop - it is 99 here!

Don't have any photo's but he has BIG ROUND GOLD EYES and a skinny lONG body and if you look at a photo of a wild Black Panther you will see thIS guy - EXCEPT his muzzle is finer and he has big ears! He really is one gorgeous cat!

About 20 years ago, I was given 2 kittens that matched the description of the cat that found you. I got these kittens in Pixley (no.of Delano, on the 99); they were so beautiful & I used to brag that my husband gave me furs for Christmas. I named them Pixley & Dixie. I hope that you find the owners of the cat; I should think that they would be searching for him a little more actively. Yikes! 99 on the western side is so BRUTAL! (I used to live in Oildale for 3 years). Bless you for taking in this little guy - it's a dangerous world out there. He sounds soooo beautiful, as were my 2. Please keep us posted! Susan

Bombay's have HUGE eyes (cannot remember exactly what else) so I knew he is not a Bombay and not a Burmese either as he is too enlongated.

I think that oriental shorthairs have slanted eyes though, don't they? HE has BIG gold green eyes.

Oriental shorthairs, usually look just like a Siamese, without the the points. They have long slender bodies, and long slendger wedge shaped face like a Modern Siamese, and huge ears like a modern Siamese.

He DOES have those BUT do they have slanting eyes? HIs eyes are BIG and ROUND! Maybe he is just part Oriental. He SURE DOES Talk though! AND he keeps hissing at poor Benji!

Orientals do have the slightly slanted, almond shaped eyes, just like Siamese.

Cornish Rex fits your description.....well, except I think you'd notice the wavy coat.

sounds just like Buffy. She's long and thin, and looks a lot like a Siamese except she's black. Only difference I can see (which probably doesn't mean much since I have zero experience with Siamese cats) is that Buffy's face isn't as long as a Siamese's. It's not flat, but it's more rounded than a Siamese face.

This guy DEFINATELY has Oriental shorthair in him but maybe Bombay or Burmese too as he has BIG ROUND eyes but the rest of him is all Oriental shorthair!

Wish I knew where he came from and why no body is out looking for him! I have flyers up all over! Am going to put more up tomorrow but gee I hope it is not so hot!

Why not run him to a vet clinic and have him scanned for a chip?
I can't imagine a collared cat having no ID at all.

My thought too - and does your local paper run free lost and found ads? He sounds lovely in looks and temperament, but I cannot imagine an owner of such a cat not looking for him frantically.

I DID! I took him to Banfield as I thought they would be cheaper and ended up paying $80.00 for the Elissa test and exam! ALL I wanted was the test tomake sure he had no diseases he could pass on to my ohters! They scanned him but no microchip!

Oh my! If you find the owner you should try and make them pay the bill! It sounds like you are doing all you can. What will you do if you can't find his home?

KEEP HIM! I have fallen madly in love iwth him but I fear his owners will see one of my flyers and want him back!

Good luck with him. Obviously I feel sorry for the owners who have lost such a lovely cat, but they were very stupid to put a collar on him without any ID - it is the main reason for collars!

It IS weird but perhaps he is an indoor only kitty whose owners have birds or perhaps he never leaves the back yard. I am sure the bell is just to prevent hm from getting birds. I think perhaps his owners must have gone on vacation and had someone taking care of him and he escaped. Perhaps the care person does not know who to call or does not even know!
