Acquired: Breeder (professional)
Posted Aug 16, 2015
My mum never wanted to have a cat in our house- her house since she got to make all the rules. The reason she never wanted cats was not because she hated them, but because she loved them and actually grew up with them. Unfortunately, she had a bad experience where she stepped on a kitten and it died. Somehow, seeing one reminded her of the experience. My persistence managed to outweigh whatever bad memories she had when she finally got a cheetoh cat.
We called her Molly. Molly was a very human oriented cat, which is characteristic of cheetohs. I found that to be delightful as I played many little games with her. Anyone who loves a cat that likes to do little things with humans should consider a cheetoh. Keeping it active once in a while is actually good for its health.
Molly did little shedding and I am sure my mum considered that when deciding what breed to get. Cheetohs do not shed as much, and they are not as allergenic as most cats. The coat does not need cleaning for the sake of cleaning. The coat should be brushed once in a while but that’s just to keep the fur in good shape.
We never had any health problems with Molly. She was a mostly healthy cat as all cheetohs are. Even her demise was due to some bad driver.
Cheetohs are a good fit for anyone with little time to devote to a cat. They cause few allergic reactions and don’t shed much. They are interesting cats whose presence will definitely be felt.
