They have different patterns to their coats and are
usually mostly white.

hi my peoples.

before i got busy with my feather ball
i looked for a

tp

cat

and i found this one

a peterbald

peter

it is often bald like the sphynx
but not as wrinkley.

they are from russia
and have different kinds of coats.

some are hairless and some have peach fuzz
some have downy hair and some wiry kinky hair.
sometimes they will be part bald and part down and part wiry.

sometimes they are bald but have hair on their face and feet.
and some of them have curled or crinkled whiskers.

these are some crazy cats!

their tails are long and skinny
and they have very big ears.

they are smart and loving,
active and athletic.
and they are very curious.

mama would say they are nosey
and get into everything.

i hear this all the time.
like it’s a bad thing!

norwegian forest cat

Standard

teddy

hi my peoples.

i found a big strong

tn

cat

it is a norwegian forest cat

these cats are big sturdy cats

norcat

they have very thick semi-long coats that are
water repellent  and not hard to take care of
since they don’t shed much.

if you lived in scandinavia you wouldn’t shed much either
it is really cold and snowy there.

they traveled with the vikings
being natural hunters they kept the ships
and homes free of rats and other small critters.

this is confusing to me
i thought the vikings traveled mostly on planes
to get to their games.
and they are pretty big and seems to me
they could take of the rats themselves
and not depend on a little cat.

norwegian forest cats are friendly and easy-going
and adapt to different situations with little trouble.

manx

IMAG0001

hi my peoples

i found another cat without a tail

it’s anm

cat
a

manx

manx

look at that nifty collar!

these cat come from the isle of man
and are tailless because of a genetic mutation.

there is a story that they don’t have tails because
noah shut the ark door on the manx’ tail and it got cut off.

i don’t think anyone believes that.

they are really round heavy cats
and peoples think they sort of look like bowling balls.

with back legs that are longer than the front
it looks like their rump is up in the air.

better than having a nose outta joint!

they are smart and often play fetch like dogs

i do that

and sometimes bury their toys

i don’t do that.
mama gets all upset when i dig in the plant pots.

manx cats are even-tempered and affectionate and calm.

probably because they are afraid of losing another part if they misbehave.

laperm

Standard

Photo399

hi my peoples.
just been chillin today
but i found an

l

cat for you.

it is the laperm cat.
this cat is often born bald!
if it born with hair it quickly goes bald.

wonder what the mama cat thinks when she sees a bald kitty?
mama says mama’s love their babies
whether hairy or bald doesn’t matter.

anyway, at about 4 months they have a coat of  hair that is,
of course, curly.
like they have a “perm”.

Laperm_LH_red_tabby

mama  says many straight-haired people get perms
so they will have curls.
it seems to me that there are peoples
that are never happy with what they have.

laperm cats have long or short hair
and their curls can be wavy or ringlets
of any color and pattern.

these kitties are affectionate
and love peoples.

i think people loving is a gene trait
that i do not have.
except i do love my mama.
