    Kitty Cat Cast Episode #13 - The Persian

    In this episode of Kitty Cat Cast we look at the beautiful Persian cat breed. This is one of the most popular cat breeds in the world. I never really like the look of this breed because of the flatfish face and leaking eyes. But I later discovered that there is a type of Persian that has more of a muzzle and beautifully extended nose and cheek. Eventually I got one when we moved to Thailand. Her name is JaiDee and you will see her in other episodes of Kitty Cat Cast.

    Vidcast #44 - Pixie Bob Kittens

    Vidcast #44 - Pixie Bob Kittens

    The Pixie-Bob breed seems to have everything going for it: an intelligent, playful personality, a strong resemblance to the American Bobcat and an origin clouded in mystery and legend. Thought to be descended from matings between bobcats and house/barn cats, DNA testing has so far failed to prove a link to a wild ancestor.

    Pixie Bob History
    The Pixie-Bob is an American breed. The first Pixie-Bob was believed to be the issue of a random mating, between a small Coastal Red Bobcat and a short-tailed polydactyl barn cat. Carol Ann Brewer,
    of Washington State, purchased a male polydactyl kitten from the resulting litter in 1985. Because of the many legends, surrounding such matings between wild and domestic cats, she dubbed this first kitten a "Legend Cat". Within a year, Ms. Brewer had acquired a few more of these cats and began to establish the Pixie-Bob breed.

    One female kitten, named Pixie, became the dam line and namesake for the breed. The Pixie-Bob was accepted into TICA as "new breed and color" in 1995 and for Championship status in 1997. Currently, only TICA and CCA accept the Pixie-Bob for registry.
    It should be noted that there is also an "American Bobtail" breed,
    accepted as a separate cat breed by TICA and recognized by the CFA as well. This breed has a different breed history, but it does share some physical characteristics, notably the bobbed tail.

    The Pixie-Bob is muscular, with a heavy bone structure. Males will typically mature to 12-26 pounds, with females a bit smaller. The coat is double one and can feature spots, broken bars and rosett
    Colors are shades of brown or russet, with silver or black t is short (a minimum of two inches) and is carried high. Ey deep-set. Brown and gold colored eyes are preferred but accepted. Many Pixie-Bobs also have lynx-pointed ear tuft is common, with a maximum of seven toes per paw. This i breeds wherein polydactylism is accepted for registry.

    The Pixie Bob is a hardy breed with no special care needs. Some breeders have raised concern about the effect of certain vaccines may have on cats of this breed. Pixie Bob cat o consult with both the breeder and veterinarian about their cat's vaccine plan.

    Vidcast #42 - Munchkin Kittens

    Vidcast #42 - Munchkin Kittens

    The Munchkin Cat is a naturally occurring domestic cat with short legs. Because they originate from a domestic cat, they come in all colors, can range in height, and will weigh anywhere from 5 to 9 lbs full-grown. Although they were not introduced into the cat fancy until the 1980's, they were seen dating as far back as the 1940's.
    The personality of a Munchkin could be described as playful, sweet, social, and easy going. They like to spend time with their owners and enjoy lots of attention. They seem to have magpie tendencies, and love to hide things. One of my favorite Munchkin quirks is when they play or just want to look at something; they stand on their rear legs similar to a Prairie Dog.
    Grooming a Munchkin is no different from grooming any domestic cat. Short hair Munchkins should be brushed once a week to help shed dead hair, and the long hair Munchkins should be brushed twice a week to get any tangles or mats out. Like any cat, they need a good quality diet, regular vet visits, and kind human attention.
    The Munchkin does not have any specific health problems that are associated with the short legs. A common misconception is that they have the same spinal weakness as the Dachshund dog. Because cats have such a flexible spinal column this does not pose a problem for the Munchkins. The short front legs do not hamper them in any way. They can run, walk, and jump just like a normal cat would. You will find them jumping onto counter tops, climbing cat trees, and running through the house just as you would most cats.

    Vidcast #41 - Scottish Fold Kittens

    Vidcast #41 - Scottish Fold Kittens

    This is the beginning of a new series on pure bred kittens. Have you ever wanted to know what these lovely pedigree felines look like in "munchkin" season. Well, stay tuned to Kitty Cat Cast as we will be bringing you the cutest little kitten cat breeds in video to dazzle the eyes and touch the heart!In its early years, this unique breed of folded eared cats was met with scorn at its native British Islands but has since rapidly progressed to become one of the top ten most popular breeds in the world. Today, the distinctly round face with forward folded ears charms cat lovers everywhere.
    Scottish Fold Cats - Breed History
    The Scottish Fold breed originated from Susie, a cat that lived on a farm in Perthsire, Scotland during the early 1960s. Susie was a white mixed breed cat with one exceptional feature - her ears were folded.
    William Ross, a local shepherd with an interest in purebred cats, noticed Susie and obtained one of her kittens, another ear folded cat. Shortly after that Susie died, leaving behind only one more folded kitten - a neutered male. Ross contacted Pat Turner, a London breeder with an interest in feline genetics, and so a breeding program for folded eared cats was established.
    At first, British cat fancy associations rejected the breed on the grounds that the folded ears gene was compromising the health of these cats. In the early 1970s a breeding program was established in the United States and by the end of that decade, the Scottish Fold gained championship status at the cat shows.
    Scottish Fold Cats - Breed Description
    The most prominent feature of any Scottish Fold cat is of course the ears, which must fold forward and downward. The ears are usually small and tightly folded, giving the cat's head a unique round silhouette. The head shape itself is also round, with prominent cheeks, a short nose and well rounded large eyes.
    Scottish Folds are medium sized cats and can be either short haired or long haired. All colors and patterns are acceptable except for pointed patterns that suggest hybridization with Siamese or Himalayan cats.
    These cats are considered to be sweet tempered and intelligent. These docile cats are not very vocal and form deep attachments with their loved humans.
    Scottish Fold Cats - Special Needs
    The gene responsible for the folded ear mutation is a dominant gene. This means that if the gene is passed from one of the parents, it is enough to produce a folded kitten. If both parents contribute the folded gene, the kitten is likely to suffer from congenital osteodystrophy, a genetic condition that causes deformities of the bones (especially fused tail vertebrae and thickened legs). That is why responsible breeders never breed one Scottish Fold to another - all Scottish Folds must be constantly outbred to prevent the birth of sick kittens.
    Healthy Scottish Folds appear not to have any special health or grooming problems. These cats are not particularly prone to ear infections or ear mites, as was suspected some years ago.
