She is definately not deaf... I checked when I brought her home, and again after I read your posts. She does however ignore us a lot, she isnt overly affectionate and hates to be held or cuddled.
No mats on her upper body, her hair is very silky and soft, but tends to mat under the arms, but not often. I cant brush her as she tends to bite so I just cut the matts.
I read up about turkish angoras, and thought it a possibilty that she might have some in her background as she looks very similar, eyes, fur and jaw structure, however her ears are not quite as large. I saw a picture of a turkish angora and it looked exactly like one of my kittens, pure white with a black smudge on the top of his head.
She does have some of the traits of angoras, such as hyperactiveness, she yaks non stop and she loves to play.. I read that they do not like to be cuddled for long and that they tend to connect with one person more than others, which is me cos she follows me around non stop.
Thank you for all your replies. I really wanted to know as she is so beautiful and Ive never seen a cat like her before. Apart from angoras and a picture of a ragdoll that I have seen I cant find a breed that is similar to her in appearance...
PS: I will try and get a better picture of her in a sitting position that might help a little, but it is difficult as its really hot here and she is always lying down on the cool tiled floor.
Oh that reminds me, i do not know how to check if she has a double layered coat or just a single, but when she is hot she pants a lot which gives me the idea that she has a double coat, unlike angoras which have a single coat...
Do you get tabbies or maine coons that look like her?
