Acquired: Breeder (hobby breeder)
Posted Nov 20, 2014
Talk about a perfect cat! This is the one for sure! And intelligent! His coat was so beautiful and stayed that way all of his life. There was no grooming whatsoever needed on my end. Extremely loving and yet not over needy for attention. Most intelligent cat I have ever had. He (by accident without me trying) learned to play fetch. He would actually go and get me his ball, I would throw it and he would run and bring it back to me. Loved that game and would keep playing as long as I would want to. Unfortunately he had a stomach issue and one day I came home and he was curled up and wouldn't move. I took him to the emergency vet clinic and they gave me no choice but to put him down. It is something that I didn't know about and is fairly common in this breed (although I cannot recall what the disease was). I was heartbroken. If I were to ever get another cat though, this would be my first choice. Also, he didn't shed much at all - definitely not enough to be noticed against dark clothing which I wear quite often. Very good experience.
