Our cat is a cutiest sheditrix. Not too rare, especially this time of year

My cats have dual bloodlines.

They’re both mutts and both are brats.

It’s good that we live in the woods where they can go out, since the wife would have killed me long ago over their activities.

I am suspicious of the sphynx ranked above the Scottish Fold. I had also not heard that ANYone recognized the Ragdoll as an actual breed.

If I could get to the meat of the subject, I would most likely enjoy it. However, I couldn’t get past all the ads, no matter how many times I clicked the “x” and tried to home in on something worth while.

Sorry S&A...this site sucks.

I’ve been a ragdoll breeder for years and both the ACA and TICA have been recognizing the breed since before 2000.

“My cats are.... a mutt, a mutt, and a mutt”.

It is all how to put it, SA. Your kitties are “pets from non-selective breeding”. Sounds sort of fancy in a snooty kind of way, doesn’t it?

I am reminded of a comment I read recently:

" if you were to take a person from the 1950s and plop them down here and now, what would be the most difficult thing to explain:

that I have this device in my pocket that allows me to access all of the information in the world ... and I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with people that I don't know.

Several people have suggested Firefox, but I have no clue about the OS. I guess I need to download it and LEARN!

Thanks! You are awesome!

I hate spam in any form. But where do I go to get rid of it?

Is Firefox hard to learn? What will happen to my Favorites? Email? Etc?

Firefox will let you import your favorites from IE, and it is easy to learn. Email will be unchanged.

I do most of my email through Gmail or Yahoo. Both have excellent spam filters.

Firefox has a utility to transfer bookmarks over if I recall, been a long time. I find it easy to use and love the add ons like Adblock and Download helper.

I quit using downloaded email with Outlook Express and went to webmail years ago, so cannot help with that.

My wife keeps IE loaded along with Firefox as a few websites she likes do not work otherwise. I can't stand IE myself.

Is there anything specific I need to know about it?

I strongly suggest installing Adblock Plus once you’ve installed Firefox. You can get it at http://adblockplus.org/en/firefox.

Mine is a cross between fur ball and lump. As usual, she’s laying across my hands as I’m trying to type.

Hmm, am watching the derby and the camera just zoomed in on two snipers on the roof.

All I know is my two cats are “American Shorthairs,” i.e. mutts. I did have a Burmese or half-Burmese, but she looked all Burmese to me. Also, Whitey, the cat I lost last year, she strongly resembled a Snowshoe although she was half or quarter Snowshoe but she looked like a purebred Snowshoe, her mother is grey and white and she had two grey and white brothers. She was part of a family of kittens I took in, along with the mother, back in 2001. All the kittens have passed away but we still have Mom, she is laying next to me as I type this. Genetics is funny in many ways.

When mine isn’t laying on my hands, not my arms but literally on my hands, she’s standing in front of the screen so I can’t see. Her latest trick is sitting off to the side and tapping on my shoulder. It’s hey!.... yo, hey you!... HEY, MOM!!! with her tapping getting more and more insistant until I scratch her or give her treats from the desk drawer. I don’t know why I put up with it.

I had read they were not recognized back in the 90s, so that makes sense.

Savanna’s, a new breed is the most beautiful and largest (tallest) cat and I would like one except that there prices range 800-1500 dollars...Its a cross with the Serval (wild cat) and a domestic cat. Forgot the breed it was crossed with...They maintained their wild look, very long legged cat..

We didn’t start with the ragdolls until 2004 so that was before I even knew the breed existed.

Unfortunately I know that pain...

We are so blessed to have them for the time we get with them.

It just kills us when they go home, but I firmly believe they will be waiting for us when it’s our turn...
