purrrty blue eyes :) How old is she?

Her eyes are actually much prettier in decent light, not quite the Siamese blue, but with some greenish tint to them. She's 9 years old, to be 10 this Christmas.

I will :)

My daughter just called me, and informed me that Angel is hiding behind the couch again. Looks like she has decided to camp out there for a while.

Cute cat dw. I thought Himalayans were all white and gray, no spots though??


Of course, I could be thinking of a different breed too :tard:

I have to repeat that :tard: smiley, even though I don't think you are one, just because I like it :lol:

Most Himalayans are light colored with pointing like Siamese cats, but some have different color patterns. Angle is a tortie Himalayan, with gray and light red markings, not the true pointing, but the pics don't show it very well.

She's been fixed, so breeding her is out of the question, but torties don't usually breed true anyway.

Okay, that makes sense now. So within the Himalayan breed, there are sub-breeds and they're different from each other.

The only reason I asked is, my sister had a cat quite a few years ago that was a Himalayan of some kind and he was white with gray just on his paws, ears, face and tip of his tail. Really annoying long fur too.

There are quite a few variants in Himalayan markings and coloring. Most of them are similar to Siamese cats, with seal point, chocolate point, blue point, lilac point, flame point, tortie point, and I can't recall what else at the moment. Angel doesn't have the point distribution, which to me doesn't make much sense to classify her as a Himalayan, but there are some like that anyway.

Sounds like your sister's cat might have been a blue point, dunno why they call gray "blue" but they do. I particularly like the blue and lilac point :cool:

aww poor kitty :(
When we moved into the new house that's what my cat did. But When I got home and i peered behind the couch, he came running out to cuddle with me, then followed me around everywhere for a few weeks.
It was cuet. Maybe she'll start getting comfty with one person first like that, while she adjsuts.

PREPARING YOUR CAT FOR CONSUMPTION
Since cat meat isn't commercially available in the United States (and illegal to boot), you'll probably have to prepare cat yourself. If you live in the more enlightened domains of East Asia, and can purchase cat at the local market, you may want to skip this step and proceed to COOKING YOUR CAT.

First, get a large cutting board and lay out your cat. Lop off the head, the tail and the feet with a sharp butcher's knife. These parts of the cat contain little usable meat, so toss them aside.

Next, make a longitudinal incision on the cat's abdomen. Reach your hand (wear gloves!) into the body cavity, and remove all of the internal organs. Discard them- especially the liver. It may look tasty, but the liver of a felis domesticus is frequently too toxic for human consumption.

SKINNING YOUR CAT
There’s more than one way to skin a cat- our exhaustive research uncovered two. On this site, two High School students meticulously guide you step-by-step through skinning a cat - complete with diagrams. To summarize, use a sharp knife to trim off the skin, and pull it back, snipping away at the muscle tissue.

Gourmands like to skin their cats differently. They hate shun using a skining knife, calling it crude. They reccomend you grab the loose skin around the head stump, and using a pair of pliers, peel it back off the carcass like a banana, rolling it off the body. The final step before cooking is to wash the meat of stray gristle and hairs. Nobody likes cat hair in their food.

COOKING YOUR CAT
Now you are ready to cook! One USENET account recommends placing a cat in a very high powered magnetron microwave. This device supposedly can cook a cat in approximately 10 minutes- the proteins are denatured (cooked), and sugars caramelized by microwave heating. The cat may be "cooked" but will it taste good? If you've ever tried to microwave a raw hamburger, you'll know the answer is "no." For the best taste, our reader inquired about possibly slow cooking a feline. That's exactly what we at PWEETA recommend- a slow cooked Beer Roasted Cat. Other cat recipes you may enjoy are classic Cat Tamales, Cat in Spicy Ginger Sauce, and Cat Au Gratin.

BEER ROASTED CAT
1 cat cut into roast
1 can of Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup
1 cube of beef bouillon
1 clove of garlic
1 Fine Irish Stout, like Guinness

Cover and soak cat roast in salt water for 24 hours. Drain water and then cover and soak in beer for 6 hours. Drain and place in crock pot with your cans of soup. Add a clove of garlic, and a cube of beef bouillon. If you start to slow cook your cat in the morning with your George Foreman Cooker (or it's ilk), you'll have finely cooked feline in time for supper.

If a slow cooker is not available, a cat can be baked at 350 degrees for 2-3 hours in a conventional oven and still come out pretty good. Beer Roasted Cat is fantastic served with mashed potatoes, collard greens, and fresh, homemade egg rolls. When planning a full meal just remember- cat is a course best served hot!

Cat may not be the most glamorous, or tastiest of game meats, but with a little thought and preparation, Baked Cat can make the belly of the persnicketiest diner glow with home baked goodness.


CAT COOKIN' RESOURCES

LET'S COOK OUR CAT
Remember the Twilight Zone episode where they translate the alien book, To Serve Man and find out it is a cookbook as the people of Earth take off in the Alien's spaceship? In a stunning reversal of metaphor, Let's Cook FOR Our Cat turned out not to be a simple way to prepare your feline for consumption, but a way to cook gourmet food FOR your cat. This is a silly and expensive way to fatten a cat - use cheap dried food like big meat packers do.

HOW TO SKIN A CAT:
Two High School chicks from Berkley show you how to skin a cat in preparation for dissection- or even cooking. Then they go on to pull out its insides and marvel at its genitalia in the name of "science". Pictures and videos included.

STARVING ANGOLANS EAT CATS
People eat cats and dogs in the central Angolan city of Huambo, where food supplies have all but disappeared. 300,000 people have flocked to the city, Angola's second largest, to flee fighting in the region between the government and rebel forces.

CAT FEASTS
An estimated 200 Beijing families report their cats stolen a month. Mostly, the missing kitties are sold to wholesale markets for about $3 each. To eat.

DELICIOUS TIGERS
Story of "Wildlife Parks" in China where people watch Tigers battle livestock and eat them. Then the people eat the Tigers. Remember, tigers are a big form of cat.

KOREA: THE SADISTIC COUNTRY
"Korea is to cats & dogs what Hitler was to Jews! Cat soup is the preferred way to eat cat meat !" WARNING: NOT eating cat leads to hyperbole!
The Koreans call their favorite cat dish "Goyangi-tan" - or "Liquid Cat." Fire up the blender - sounds tasty.

COOKING A (CAT) TAMALE:
Someone once cross-posted How to Cook a Cat to alt.tasteless and alt.pets.cat. The fallout from that debacle is used in all the official user documentation of how NOT to cross-post. I couldn't find a copy of said document, but this was posted on alt.ascii-art and seems to incorporate part of it. We got some fine preparation suggestions from it.

This is the first purebred cat that I've ever had, not that it makes a heck of a lot of difference. Angel is Angel, regardless of whether she's purebred or mutt.

Yeah, I remember the pics of your Siamese (and you :drool: ), I have them saved at home :)

OK, now I've got a few better pics of my Angel:

Hmm, guess she's a little camera shy at the moment:

148_4811.jpg


Reminds me of a tribble:

This pic makes her look like she just has one eye...
