Hello first off thanks for this wonderful site! I'm new here but it's soo nice to be with other cat lovers. I did find this site on a quest though. First of all,we just got a new kitten and I'm curious if anyone may know what breed or part breed she may be. She was in very rough shape when we got her, but she is white, long haired with a normal face (not flat ((sorry my only descriptive word for it)) like a persian) but her ears really get me. The tips curl up and back I have never seen that before! also they have reallllly long hair tufts out of them. She also has one blue one green eye. If anyone knows if she has a predominant breed please let me know. It's not that important I'm getting her spayed but I'm curious. She is my beauty project, she was dragged by a dog (her tail is hairless right now) and flea bitten almost to death, but doing better since I got my hands on her. Very sweet personality and quite the looker all cleaned up. Oh and she has no name yet so any suggestions? I'm contemplating angel...

The other is please please..... My daughter's cat is having her second litter soon (I didn't get her spayed quick enough)... her first litter had only 2 kittens who died looking very healthy, fat with shiny coats, I called the vet to find out why, but without an autopsy they said they couldn't tell me However, there are a lot inbred cats here, so genetics may be part of it. So since I couldn't save the last litter please any and all advice on pregnant, nursing, and growing kittens would be wonderful thanks again!

I haven't got any pics of my new kitty yet I adopted her two days ago off the street and have had school and not gotten to it yet...... I would like to figure out how to do the Banners like everyone else has with all my kitties (maybe my doggies too...)

Sounds like you have an American Curl kitty. Pat & Alix know about the breed.

You might want to drop her a picture when you get one.

Thanks captiva, I will look up the breed and see if she looks close and get back with them. I don't know anything about her father just her mom is a mix from nextdoor. The neighbor feeds all the strays and gives them away to whoever wants them but I had to have this one, she needed me!

I looked up american curl, and of course you were right.... Definately not show quality (she's a mix anyhow) but pet quality curls.... now I just need to know if I should watch for health problems or anything. I just don't see how we came up with this one... to my knowledge there are no curly eared cats running around here haha. Must be a recessive gene she got or something.......oh well she is going to be beautiful AND unique And have a perfect personality, I consider myself very lucky.

As unique as she is...I do hope you plan to have her spayed and please keep her indoors only until she is spayed.

Sounds like it would be a great opportunity to contact a local group and have these cats fixed. My suggestion would be to contact one of the groups below and see if they can help:

When I named my boy...it was because of his bouncy personality..thus, he is "Tigger" as Tiggers are wonderful things.

Hi, welcome to TCS!

Angel is a nice name. Maybe Aquamarine for her different eye colors. Although that is kinda of long. Hope you find one you like!

I just want her to have a special name that shows how wonderful she is I can't find one good enough I've thought about goddess names though..... I would have to look them up though I don't remember who did what I am so pleased with her..

She is sweeeeet and quiet and snuggly, and sooo good, both of my cat's from the stray colony are and they never potty on the floor unless my hubby accidentally shuts them in the bedroom with me and that don't happen often. Her personality is hard to name sweetie is too common.... angel too ... I'm at a loss might look up a name site online
post #22 of 25
She sounds like a Chinchilla or an American Curl. It is quite common for pure white longhaired cats to be odd-eyed in colour.

You will need to get her checked to find out whether or not she is deaf in the ear the side she has the blue eye - it's a genetic anomaly in white, blue-eyed cats.

Yay for you for saving this beautiful girl! I think Angel is a lovely name - she is, after all, pure white, and you kind of came along and rescued her like her own personal angel.

Can't wait to see some pics! And welcome to TCS!

She is more my angel than I hers. My Pitbull (maybe) cross disappeared about 2 and a half years ago, and While I have several pets I have had a very hard time feeling attached to one in particular since. I was 5 months pregnant when we lost him and I took it extremely hard. My daughter's cat is wonderful and I love all the others but this Kitty is the first that I have truly felt is "mine", rather that she and I are meant to be together. Coming across her has been a very worthwhile experience. I wanted a solid black male, and fell in love with a white female instead !

Well wish us luck, Kitten's spay & shot appointment is the 27th, and I always take it hard when they come home disoriented, and worry while they're there. By the way, She has good respnse when you snap behind either ear, so I don't think deafness is a problem
