Cat Breed of the Month: The Balinese

Appearance: The Balinese, also known as a Javenese, has a semi-longhair silky coat, he also comes in several ditinctive printed colors. The Balinese is a direct member of the Siamese and is basically a long-haired version of the Siamese. It has a long, lean body and blue, almond shaped eyed with a rounded body type and a apple shaped head.

History: This beautiful cat originated in the United States. A long-haired Siamese was first registered in 1928 in the UK, but they only began to breed themin the US in the 1950s. These long-haird Siamese cats were recognized as an official breed in 1961. The breed was named the Balinese because the breeder was reminded of Balinese temple dancers whenever she saw her cats.

Traits and Temprament: The Balinese is described as demanding, affectionate, playful, and energetic, similar to his Siamese cousin.This cat has a highly inquistive nature and needs lots of feline and human company.

Grooming: Since the Balinese only has a one layer coat of fur, it doesn't need as much management and grooming as other longhaired cats. Weekly brushing is good for much cats and wouldn't hurt you Balinese, it may even help your cat, there would be less hairballs and less chance of matting.

Health Related Issues: As of yet there are no known health related issues concerning the Balinese.Like all cats, the Balinese should get regular vet check ups.

Question of the Day!
Does the Balinese fit you and your lifestyle?

Cat School Supplies

I have been noticing a lot lately, how much cat school stuff I have. I mean there is so much of it, most people just stare at it in amazement and wonder how I got all of it. It is really easy, especially for a person with cat sensors who can detect a cat and cat related items in a 30 mile radius, to find cat stuff. Plus I get a lot of neat stuff from my friends who have cat stuff they don't know what to do with. Even my biology teacher gives me cat stuff ( or at least plans on once she finds it). Whenever my friends see a cat or something cat related they always tell me about and say that the thought of me when they saw it. Even my theatre teacher commented that she never hears my name used in as entence without cat in it! Here are some pictures an comments of my cat schol stuff:

First off is my cat bag. What type of bag is it?

A PENCIL POUCH OF EPICNESS! It is super cool! I love it a lot.
It has two sides to it! I got it from a friend who bought it at some Asian festival! My geography teacher pinched the cat's head during class... is that a good or bad thing?
This is my daily planner! I got it at Half Price Books for $3!

Here it is on the inside, which reminds me I have a math packet to finish for tomorrow...

My yellow English cat folder.

My pink cat homework folder.

And last but not least my cat binder for theatre!

That's all my cat school stuff, but that doesn't include some odd cat stuff I bring to school everyonce and a while (cat magazines, pencils, small stuffed animals, etc.)

Question of the Day!
Do you have any cat school supplies?

Cat Introduction Video!

First video with Mausi and Daddycat, I would have added Zille, but he was in my sister's room and she would not let me in.... I am excited about it, though now that I look back it may be boring to some, but seeing my cats on the big screen (or should I say computer screen?) is a lot of fun! So sit back, relax and enjoy! I was scared that this video was going to be laggy, because when I was watching it on Windows Live Movie Maker, it didn't go fast and took small pauses! But all has gone well!

I know the video is kinda shaky, but it is hard to do it one handed. Some places you can't see what's going on because it is dark, sorry about that! Since it is my first video it is kinda hard to get everything right. Also yesterday when I was spacing out in Healthy Lifestyles I realized that the initials of All My Cats are AMC, like the tv network! And DMZ stands for Daddycat Mausi Zille! Maybe the only way to unite the Koreas is to bring my cats there, and then peace shall be restored! Ha ha, well enough of that I will do a new video soon!

Question of the Day!
What did you think of the video? Also one more thing, do you think my hand looks bloated and red on screen? It sorta looked that way on screen, and judging my hands right now they don't look bad, I don't know, maybe it's just the lighting...

Bonus Video!
The Adventures of Mausi: Episode 1

Right after I finished posting this I heard Mausi under my bed I decided to film it and show off some of her crazy antics. When I do these cat videos I realize that I sometimes talk to the cats unknowingly. LOL I say stuff that I don't remember saying. That's totally normal right? Ha ha hope you enjoy, also in the video you'll hear some huffing and puffing and that's because I am moving stuff out of my way so I can get a better view of Mausi. And I say "Caught in the craught" no idea what that means either. Enjoy!

Coming Soon: Better Quality Pictures!

Today, my dad told me I could borrow his Nikon camera! I am super excited. To anyone who has seen my blog sometimes it is very obvious that my pictures aren't professionally done but with a DSi to work with I am doing the best I can. With the new camera to use you'll probably be able to notice the difference between my DSi photos and the Nikon ones. I am not complaining though, I like using the DSi it does a lot of great stuff and I heavily rely on it for everyday use. I will probably be able to start using it tomorrow and hopefully the cats will work with me. It's going to be interesting so get ready!

Cat Breed of the Month: The Scottish Fold

Today when I was at the dentist awaiting the horror of metal tools and tooth torture. I was trying to come up with something new for my blog. Something that would spark interest in cat lovers everywhere. That is when I decided to do the Cat Breed of the Month segment! In Cat Fancy they talk in detail about a different cat breed every issue. So I thought why not do that to? This issue's cat breed is the Scottish Fold! So get ready for lots of fun facts about this adorable cat!
Name: Scottish Fold

Alternate Names: Scott Fold or Scottish Lop

Origin: Scotland

Weight: 6 to 12 pounds

Temperament: This is a very sweet-tempered and sociable cat who is very adaptable. This cat is great with children and other pets. This cat has a medium activity level.

Special Features: Ears are laid back against the head due to a bone mutation.

Description: The Scottish Fold has a very rounded appearance. Medium sized, round head with a  short neck, and large eyes. Some of the breed's ears merely bend forward while others are completely folded and laid back. They also has a long fluffy tail. The eye color should complement the coat.

Coat: Comes in a variety of colors and patterns, most types allowed in CFA competitions. They come in long or short hair and have a very soft coat. For short hair Folds they should be brushed at least once a week and three to four times a week for the long hair Folds to prevent matting.

History: The first Scottish Fold was born in a town 13 miles from the Scottish city of Perth. The first Fold was a white female, named Susie, who was born to a normal litter of kittens. It's quite certain that the mutation was a spontaneous natural one. In 1963 she gave birth to four kittens two of them had the folded ears like their mother. William Ross and his wife Mary, who were interested in cat breeding were able to take one of the kittens who was white like his mom, whom they named Snooks. One of Snooks's desendants, Snowdrift, was given to Pat Turner who was a professional breeder in London by the Ross Family. When British officials declined to accept the breed because of its mutation several were sent to the U.S. and the breed has strived ever since.

Question of the Day!
What do you think about the Scottish Fold, would this cat fit in to your houshold well?
