This ancient rare breed was originally found in Japan and throughout most of southeast Asia. These beautiful and very active cats have a very unique tail which looks like a pom-pom – the result of a distinctive combination of curves that is unique to each cat. These long lanky cats have very sleek and powerful legs that make them very adept at running and leaping (look out nick nacks!) Very intelligent and affectionate the Javanese has a distinctive oriental look that is given by high cheekbones and slightly almond-shaped eyes. This exquisite cat comes in a rainbow of colors and coat patterns in both long-haired and short-haired varieties. A word of caution – Javanese Cats are addictive! It’s hard to stop at owning just one!

At holiday time it may be possible to arrange for a friend neighbour or relative to visit your house two or three times a day to tend to your cat. Provided such regular attention is guaranteed this is acceptable since cats prefer to remain in their own home. It is not a good idea to move the cat to someone else’s home from which it may immediately try to escape.
The alternative is to place your cat at a good boarding cattery. In choosing a boarding cattery make sure you visit the establishment first and check that the following criteria are met:
- Staffing: enough to ensure personalised attention for your cat;
- Security: adequate precautions against the possibility of escape;
- Hygiene: evidence of cleanliness and no smell;
- Accommodation: dry clean and sheltered with heating provided for cooler months;
- Exercise: facilities which allow for some exercise preferably with climbing capacity and caged outside access.
- A good boarding establishment will always ensure cats have correct vaccinations.
Signs of Health
A healthy cat should display the following signs of heath:
- Demeanour: watchful – even at rest; quickly responsive to sounds; quiet and contented;
- Movement: free movement and agile; no lameness;
- Appetite: good; no vomiting;
- Breathing: even and quiet with no coughing;
- Coat: clean well groomed and glossy; free from parasites and dirt;
- Ears: pricked to catch sound; no discharge or irritation;
- Eyes: clear; no discharge or inflammation.
Cats and kittens can become ill quite rapidly. This is usually characterised by lethargy and a failure to eat or drink. If your cat appears unwell for any reason consult your veterinarian immediately.
Breeding Pedigree Cats
Reviewer: from UK
I have bred pedigree cats since 1977. I wish I had had this book when I started then. This book is packed with information and is a MUST for cat breeders
