Default "The Russian Blue" book, anyone?

Hi all,

Does anybody have a copy of the "The Russian Blue Cat" book by
Ingeborg Urcia that they are willing to give away for money (i.e. sell
? I know that it's kind of unlikely because if you do have the book
then you are probably a Russian Blue fan, and then chances of you
selling it out are close to zero, but I want it so much (my friend
would be so happy!) that thought I would try anyway. Needless to say
IMO the book is worth much more than it was sold for in stores, and I
will be happy to back up this statement when it's time to pay. Please
email me at if you are interested.

Yours hopingly,
Aleksey

I am a brand new subscriber and have a question - we have had cats for
years, but never 2 until last year when we adopted a year old female, part
Russian Blue, after having to put down our 18 year old cat. She was a
shelter cat and had free run of the shelter, so she was lonely and we got a
4 month old male a couple of months later. He was very dominant right off
the bat and ambushed her constantly. They got along and played alot, but I
know there were times when she was not at all happy with the constant
ambushing. We also have 2 Labrador Retrievers and I believe Morris thinks
he's a dog and gets along famously with them. Anyway, the female cat
disappeared about 2 months ago. Morris is about a year old now and he's
really lonely. We're going to adopt another, but I'm curious whether it's
better to have 2 cats of the same sex or doesn't it matter if they are
neutered to begin with. Any thoughts? Susan

shouldn't have cats.

Cat disappeared how? Was it an outside cat? (If so, why would you
want a pet you let go outside? That isn't a pet, that's a boarder.)

Once they are neutered, it doesn't often much matter. Though I
personally have found that, if you are going ot have 2 cats
only, it's often better to have same sex, or at least, litter mates.

Aha, that kind of retarded response shows you are most probably Bob
Brenchley. (or at the very least his sockpuppet). You appear to be
suffering from multiple personality disorder!

Tired of being killfiled by everyone are we Bob?

IDIOT!

*PLONK*

Maybe you should heed your own advice. What does this have to do with the
original post?

.. Any thoughts?


Plenty. First, what happened to the female rescue? Did you ever find out?
This is only one of many reasons my cats, all 6 of them, stay indoors. No
unexplained disappearances. Maybe this is something you should consider
before adopting another. They are so much safer and healthier that way.

As for the sex, I don't think it really matters. I would look for one who
has lived with other cats, (and possibly dogs), and is within close age to
Morris. It's been my experience that males tend to be a bit more
affectionate than females, but this is not always the case. I have met a
couple females who were total love bugs.

Nina
