Animals

Help with cat, I need to know breed urgently!

great information,
I would like you to do something about natural cat food so as not to give them so much I think,
Once or twice a week I give them red meat, apart from pot and feed and two other skin and chicken meat.
As a child we always had cat and dog and died of old men, they never had a disease, however now when it is not one thing it is another.
regards

Hi Fernan! thanks for comment
Did you read the September post about natural nutrition? What information do you need?

Hello:
Congratulations on your blog is very complete and interesting.
I am a cat lover and I think that people should adopt, there are hundreds of thousands, and every year more, of abandoned animals. We have reached a point where people see animals as objects that can be bought and discarded at a time that they are no longer beautiful or in the way of anything. The hatcheries exploit the females so that they have litters so that insensitive people can buy a puppy at Christmas like who buys a t-shirt so that later, unfortunately, and under the protection of Spanish legislation that does not defend as it should the rights of animals and not punish the abuse, leave them on the road to go on vacation to the beach. I believe that "race" is not the most important thing, that the sale and exploitation of animals should be prohibited and adopted to give a second chance to those poor creatures who are in that situation of abandonment thanks to the selfishness and insensitivity of the human being, who want something and brand that you buy a Chanel bag, animals are lives that must be respected.
I would like you to talk about this important topic too. A hug

Hi Veronica, thanks for your comment.
I agree with you on many things, that there are people who see animals as objects, that there is little culture of animal respect and that legislation is a bodily. Nor do I think that race is the most important thing, and indeed, there are "breeders" with very little ethics.
However, not all breeders exploit females or treat them as objects. Many breeders I know do not even sell at Christmas or to people who produce the slightest doubt about how they are going to care for their animals.
You are quite right that the issue of adoption is very important, and I hope to talk about it one day on the blog.

When we take a cat to our house, it is important to know if it belongs to a particular breed. Not because we consider the danger to make it more valuable or worthy of love and attention, but because knowing it can give us light on their behavior and special care that may require.

Obviously the best option to identify the breed of a cat is to take it to a feline expert to evaluate it and give his opinion about it. However, if you want to do it yourself, and by the way learn something about this amazing world, there is a relatively simple procedure.

The first thing to know is that, according to ABC Cats, there are forty domestic cat breeds recognized by FIFE (International Feline Federation), classified into four categories clearly differentiated.

Category 1

It is the smallest category. It is only made up of the Persian and the exotic shorthair cat, which has the same complexion and physiognomy of the Persian but with a much shorter fur length.

Category 2. Razas of semi-long hair

Many of the most popular races are part of this group. They stand out for being of large size, medium length and abundant fur not very long, which requires special care in the ventral area, the armpits and the internal part of the legs, parts of its anatomy where the hair tends to knot.

Within this category are the long-haired and short-haired American curl, the Norwegian Forest cat, the Maine Coon, the Burmese sacred, the Turkish angora, the Siberian and the Turkish van cat.

Category 3. Short hair breeds

It is the most numerous category. Their sizes and textures are quite varied. So they are characterized by having a short coat that does not require greater care. The most popular races that make up this group are abyssinian, bengal, british, burmesa, burmilla, chartreux, cornish rex, cymric, devon rex, egyptian mau, european, german rex, japanese bobtail, korac, kurilian bobtail, manx, ocicat, russian blue, snowshoe, sokoke and somali.

Sphynx is also part of this cat class, due to its apparent lack of fur and being one of the strangest cat breeds in the world.

Category 4. Eastern type breeds


They are cats that are characterized by a slender complexion, a well-defined musculature, very silky short hair and some elegance in their size. The most popular breeds within this group are: the Balinese, the long-haired and the short-haired Oriental, the Siamese, the long-haired and the short-haired seychellois, the ceylon, the Chinese dragon dragon cat and the eastern cat .

Well, once you have defined the four categories, you just have to look closely at your cat and determine which of them fits its physiognomy. Remember that the most differentiating feature between one and the other is the length of your hair.

Then type in the search engine the name of the category to which your cat belongs. Surely you will see many results, in which you will find images and detailed descriptions of the races that compose it. Study them carefully and, based on that, establish what the breed of your cat is. If you do not find your photo public in a specialized forum, accompanied by a key question for experts to help you with the task.

If you finally do not achieve your goal, it is because your cat is probably not of breed. The breeding of felines for aesthetic purposes began in the 19th century, relatively recently, which is why several adjustments have to be made. Either way, don't worry. The benefits of having a cat at home do not differentiate breeds. .

Breed cats

Cats of "pure" breed are considered to be those who have ancestors of his same race or that have been crossed with another allowed standard race. For example, a Bombay cat could have among its ascendants one of Burmese race. Normally the breed is usually certified by a pedigree.

Breeds may be natural, as in the case of Siamese, they may have been created by man after different cat crossings, such as ragdoll, or be hybrid, that is, they have been obtained by crossing domestic and wild cats . A clear example of the latter type is the Bengali cat.

Domestic cats

Most cats are domestic cats. Within this term, all cats of which its origin is unknown and that arise from the crossing of felines of different races.

Domestic cats can be big cats, small cats, skinny cats, furry cats. There is something for everyone! They have the most varied colors and patterns and they are, without a doubt, the most popular cats.

Types of domestic cats

According to your color and pattern We can distinguish some types of domestic cat:

Solid: They are single color cats. They can be black, bluish, red or white. In the case of the latter, the absence of color is due to a genetic defect and if it coincides with a blue pigmentation in the eyes, the cat is very likely to be deaf.

Bicolor cat: It can be white / black, white / orange, white / cream or white / blue. Undoubtedly, the variety "tuxedo" (white / black) is the most elegant since it gives the impression that cats of this type are dressed in tuxedos.

Turtle or hawksbill shell: They are red and black, in all its variants. Sometimes they may contain some white, but very little. They can be patched, if the color spots are defined, or mottled type if the color is very mixed. These cats are so special that they have even talked about their own "tortitude" attitude, they are said to be temperamental, independent and very possessive of humans but we are convinced that it is a myth since all the hawksbills we know are pure love. For genetic reasons, this class of cats has a 99% chance of being female and, in the strange case of being male, they are usually sterile.

Calico: They are orange, black and white. The spots on your hair do not follow a pattern, they are always different, so you will never find two identical calico. Like the hawksbills, they are almost always females.

Tabby, barcino, roman or "tabby": These cats can be orange and gold colors, or gray and blue tones. Cats of this type have the curious coincidence of presenting a darker "M" spot on the eyes, although it is not equally visible in all cats. According to their color pattern they are subdivided into:

Lined: It is the most common type of pattern. It has fine horizontal stripes along the entire body and in the form of rings on the neck, legs and tail.

Classic: It is very similar to the striped type but with the difference that, in the area of ​​the spine, the stripes are thicker and irregular. If you look from above, these spots seem to form the drawing of a butterfly.

Stains: The drawings of the fur, in this case, are in the form of small spots with different shapes.

Marbled: The stripes or spots, unlike the other types of tabbys, are very poorly defined. We found a good example of this pattern in Abyssinian cats.

Cats can also be classified according to the length of your hair. We found 3 types:

Longhair cats: like the Persian cat or the Himalayan.

Semi-longhair cats: like the Balinese or the American curl.

Shorthair cats: like the Burmese or the Bengali. In this last group we would also include sphynx cats.

Knowing these two classifications we can define our domestic cats as "calico with semi-long hair", "barcino cat with short hair", etc. In the end, the race or the way in which we call our cats is the least, the most important thing is to give them a lot of love, because we already have theirs more than guaranteed.
