Oriental Short Hair (Bi-color, lilac, 2-3 year old male)
I'm a chronic asthmatic and can no longer keep him
This is our Oriental Shorthair cat, Kitty. We tried giving Kitty a different name, but he firmly believes his name is Kitty and there is no changing his mind on the matter. He is a VERY sweet boy who loves his tummy rubbed and gets along GREAT with dogs. He is not neutered but is very well-mannered and would be shocked if he was accused of spraying or missing his litter box. He will always accompany you to the bathroom, if you allow it, so that he can lay in front of you and get his tummy rubbed while you ... attend to business. He loves it when you're in the kitchen, because that usually means a tasty snack, whether it's a kitty treat or a scrap of cheese or meat that you might want to share. He is always polite, however. He won't go where he isn't wanted but he enjoys a variety of resting spots where he can meditate on the juiciness of a mouse or the crunchiness of a June bug. Sometimes he will deign to share a place in your bed or a large warm dog bed, but sometimes, like Marlene Dietrich, he wants to be alone. Kitty likes windows, though he isn't an outdoor cat. It allows him to sit in safety while dreaming of great adventures, just as we enjoy reading a book while it's thundering outside. Kitty doesn't inflict damage on anything because that is simply something only trashy cats do, and he is a gentleman...er...gentlecat. However, a scratching post is recommended. He is VERY bright and will adapt to you and the rules of your household just as easily as he adapted to ours.Oriental Shorthairs are GREAT for people with allergies, as they don't have much of the enzyme in their saliva that triggers allergy and asthma attacks. I have chronic asthma and am MUCH more reactive than most people are, which is why I've reached the point that I can no longer keep him.
