Petside.com ^ | ? | Dorri Olds

Posted on 12/24/2012 12:48:09 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

There are close to 100 recognized domestic cat breeds and every last one of them descended from wildcats. Some are recognizable just by looking at them. For instance, we’ve all heard of Persian, Siamese and Burmese cats. Other cats, however, aren't as recognizable, and not nearly as common. Here are some adorable photos of rare cat breeds who may not have crossed your path!

That describes at least two of my three - I love my tuxedo kitties, but I suspect that their family trees were missing a few branches.

Thanks for posting this. We’ve been catless forever. Last one was, wow, could it be 24-25 yrs ago? We’ve had dogs, we’re on our second set, can’t just have one, he/she might be lonely whenever left alone. And now we have a cat, who joined the family about a month. He kind of looks like the Korat. He’s silver gray with yellow-green eyes and a very long tail that has some dark rings around it. A very handsome fellow he is and he can be quite vocal. We’ve been keeping him mostly in one room when not home and as soon as we are home he lets us know he wants out. Meow! Merry Holy Days! :)

My black DSH Timmy, who will jog outside with you as though he were a dog (with no leash) has the meanest expression permanently molded on his mug. You don’t mess around with Timmy.

If talking about the opening article, what presents is an apparently untitled slide show. Lack of titles is a drag, but they can be “arrowed” through.

Every cat is rare and beautiful- to their owner.

Meowry Christmas to all the cats here- and their owners. May all find lots of tuna and other wonderful things in the New Year.

Timmy has been neutered for years, but he does not understand the concept of “no balls.” Neither does he understand what that means when his would be lover, Licorice, is “spayed.” She does not comprehend the concept of “tomcat.” So the antics between them are forever, well, “interesting.” And forever frustrating to Timmy, and forever annoying to Licorice.

My brother has three savannah cats, which are descended from servals, an African wild cat species. They resemble small cheetahs and are very playful.

BINKS: (Walking around the Starbug) Binks to Enlightenment. Have arrived on the derelict. Confirm initial speculation: there is absolutely nothing of any value or intrigue here. It's one of the old class-2 ship-to-surface vessels -- the very model, in fact, that was withdrawn due to major flight design flaws.

Crew: 3. (Passes along the crew members, who are now standing in line) One series-4000 mechanoid -- almost burnt out. Give it maybe three years. Nothing of salvageable value.

Ah, Felis Sapiens -- bred from the domestic house cat and about half as smart. No value in future study of this species.

My manx runs like a rabbit. Guess it's because of not having a tail. If I'm on the computer, she's has to lay on my hands. Between a keyboard that doesn't work and her, my posts read like I'm drunk or worse.
