This lovely Tiffany kitty is called “Miss Kitty”. Kitties love their routines and Miss Kitty is no exception. Our ritual includes sunning and grooming, playtime with her favorite toy, and then of course, TREATS!
“Miss Kitty” is a rare feline breed called a Tiffany or Chantilly cat. She has so much personality!
From Wikipedia ~
“The Chantilly-Tiffany or Chantilly/Tiffany, also known as simply the Chantilly or the Foreign Longhair, is a breed of cat derived mainly from cross-breeding long-haired Asians and Burmese. The breed originated in North America. As the name suggests, it is closely related to, and in some registries considered distinct from, the Tiffany (or Tiffanie, a.k.a. Asian Semi-longhair) breed, the British variant.
It is a cat with a semi-foreign body style and a full semi-long coat. The coat is silky, soft and smooth; the lack of undercoat usually makes grooming simpler than that of cats with an undercoat. Somewhat a late bloomer, the Chantilly-Tiffany is slow to mature and usually does not come into its full stature until about two years old. The eye color of the feline intensifies with age. The head should be a broad, modified wedge with gentle curves. It should have a medium length nose and a strong, broad, short and softly squared muzzle, and defined but not obvious whisker pads.”

Types of Cats for Allergy Sufferers
As a kid I was severely allergic to cats. My sister was furious because she was always a cat lover, and couldn’t have one because of me. Today, I care for many cats, and occasionally I’ll have a mild allergic reaction.
I love cats, and enjoy watching them play and learning their individual behaviors. I am seriously considering adopting one so it prompted me to start doing research as to what type of kitty I would get. Many people suffer from allergies to cats.

Catch Me if You Can!
You may already know about this cool toy! It’s called “Da Bird”. Cats love it because the motion simulates a bird flying and imitates prey. It appeals to their hunting instinct and gives them great physical and mental stimulation.
Jackson Galaxy, feline behaviorist from “The Cat from Hell” on Animal Planet, considers “Da Bird’ his favorite toy and carries it around in a guitar suitcase. By the way, check out the new show, it’s entertaining and informative!
It comes with a 36’ fiberglass wand and nylon string. With its feathers and the movement you can make, it sounds and feels like a real bird to kitty. Replacement feathers are available. For a change of pace there are lifelike insect and mouse attachments available.
It’s available on line for as low as $7.99 on many websites as well as local pet stores. Replacement parts are sold separately.
