19. I had a snowshoe once. That cat was quite the character.

He liked me, however, as I was "Mommy" to him after he was rescued from a crack house
and weaned too young. I bottle-fed him, so we had that bonding thing going on.

He grew to be a burly fellow, a holy terror who wouldn't hesitate to beat up very large dogs
who dared to come into HIS territory. Yet he'd let me hold him like a baby.

They are extremely smart cats, and if you are their "people", they can be quite affectionate.

He looked like a more-rugged version of this one:

23. Yep, my snowshoe female looks almost exactly like that.

She is extremely affectionate and yet very quick to bite and scratch--I love her to death, though. She is a real character.

41. Now my heart is melting.

 

I just might adopt a snowshoe kitten just to defy my wife. My sister has two huge Maine Coon cats and they don't like my son (maybe because he's 3. They actually prefer gentle people - and my son was a bit rambunctious with the cats)

My other sister has a dog - never met him or seen my youngest niece - they all live in Israel.

My question is this: is there a snowshoe siamese rescue I could contact?

One other question that *MAY* convince my wife - are they good mousers?

42. any cat can be a good mouser, but it doesnt seem breed related.

Our siamese finds mice fascinating (we've had two incursions due to construction in the neighborhood) but we don't let her hunt (mice in our part of the world carry several diseases.)

They are talkative, though, and bond closely with their people. They're also very clever.

He's one of the sweetest cat's I've ever known.

I want one like him, but now I know the reason Tarder is like that, I won't do that.

Still a very cute cat.

51. Holy cow

That looks a LOT like the stray I adopted. I assumed she was a Siamese with something else mixed in.

She has a Zorro mask...everything from her eyes up to the top of her ears is black, rather than around her mouth like a Siamese. I never thought to see another cat like her. That's the living image of Cat-Hole (so named because she sank her fangs into me once.)

I exist to open doors & cans for the cats. They only love me for my opposable thumbs.

I named him after my English grandmother's penchant for referring to my long-haired boyfriends in the 70's as "bloody riff raff" - actually she used that term a lot,,,for example, "Only the bloody riff raff goes upstairs (referring to a double-decker bus)

Here is Riff Raff; he has a habit of looking very innocent when he is actually a devil

61. A customer found her on the property where I work --

he nabbed her and put her in the stocking hat he was wearing which had the Mossimo logo on it, so I thught that needed to be her name.

It's an old Italian name, and it actually the first name of the designer of the brand -- Mossimo Giannulli.
