Just had to tell somebody - my two little girls (aged 12 weeks) are coming home tomorrow.

Anybody else got this breed?

BubblesDeVere Fri 15-Apr-05 19:19:08

No, I don't have this breed, but i do have 2 british shorthair which to me are gorgeous.

I'm going to have a look for a piccie of these.

Curling up to my british shorthair in bed is divine, i bed cuddling up to one of these is heaven.

Dejags, are they friendly cats?

they are like Jan's picture. Ultra friendly, almost dog-like in personality.

I CANT wait. Will post a pic under member profiles tomorrow.

dh had one a few years ago and loved her. she had an independent personality and loved the outdoors, but would be cuddly when she wanted to be!

my girls are home and have settled in so well. They are gorgeous, unfortunately our camera batteries have died so I don't have a pic

They are already curling up on our laps in front of the telly and following us around. They really do have dog-like personalities.

love em, love em to bits

My ex's parents had one, they also had a blue & a red maine coon too. Gorgeous and really big !

NomDePlume Mon 18-Apr-05 19:17:03

I have a British Shorthair too, Alfie.

well as I am unlikely to ever have a human baby girl I went with real girlie names - Bow and Blossom.

Will report back next week after my house, furniture and curtains have been destroyed by the babies

JanH Mon 18-Apr-05 21:02:46

They sound gorgeous, dejags - hurry up and get some batteries!

I did have a Norwegian Forest Cat (he went to heaven a while ago). He was the fluffiest, cuddliest, purriest pusscat I ever had. Wonderful, wonderful cats.

NOW I'm feeling broody!

dejags Tue 19-Apr-05 19:59:51

just checked and camera quite dead - look here for kitties who look similar to ours. Ours are black tortie queens.

I just can't get over how friendly these cats are, these babies follow us around and just want constant attention and love.

Did have to clean up 3 poos and a wee today though

FrenchGirl Tue 19-Apr-05 20:05:44

am not a cat person but even I will admit they look gorgeous! My brother and his family have got one of these , apparently he behaves like a dog too!! and is really adorable.
i prefer my Lakie

PuffTheMagicDragon Tue 19-Apr-05 20:08:50

omg, FrenchGirl, we had a British Blue (that's what they are I think). He was adorable too - huge fella, with the shiniest, glossiest grey coat you ever saw.

I miss my pussies .

dejags Tue 19-Apr-05 20:09:22

Funny coincidence FG - the breeder we got our cats from had one litter of these - she called them Brits I think. We were really undecided as they are also gorgeous, we ended up choosing ours because the one she had left was very timid and probably not great with kids.
