    Munchkins have the short legs.

    You already know what the Persian standards are, I'm sure.

      a long haired exotic.  That is what it says on her paperwork.  and she is definitely a little chatterbox.  talks to me, talks to herself, talks to the litterbox and her toys...

      heh.  ;-)

      She really is wonderfully socialized as a kitten (KoKo was definitely not up to the same measure, but given his beginnings, it kind of makes sense).  I think she had a little bit of a set back in the change from away from mama and sibs to new environment, which is why I began to give her kitteh milk with her crunchies. She came with the recommended food and also a whole list of instructions.  I do think the breeder just didn't realize the messy situation that arose.

      Maybe overall, Sandy was this little one's saving grace??!!!  Otherwise she would have been with the girl without any issues of relocation and housing!

      hmm....

      anyway.  So here I wait.  I will not allow the girl to come over at her convenience though.  It's not like my house is open at all times to her!!  gah!  okay - just venting...

        I totally understand.

        Never heard of "long-haired exotic" as a "breed" before..., but teh Gooooogle has web pages for them.  This one looks interesting.  It does have the shorter legs minus the "Munchkin" bow legs and long body.

        The boyfriend may have paid much too much for that kitten.  I don't think any responsible breeder would actually sell a kitten until Mama Cat had properly weaned it at 9+ weeks, then made sure it had the first round of shots.

          10 weeks old.  Was picked up at that point.  And has had her first round of shots, too.  So I do think the breeder has been responsible in that sense.  Maybe she's never encountered this type of situation before?  Or maybe, given the circumstances, it's the first of it's type (where kitten is purchased and suddenly unforeseen events like a hurricane hits).

          Having taken in several young baby handfed parrots, I realized that sometimes babies simply regress a bit.  Transition not being easy.

          Right now she is very happy with the company of KoKo... who is being surprisingly patient with her... or perhaps it's all the fun new toys in the room that he's mostly interested in!  heh.

          LOL... going to that page, that grand champion reminds me of Mei Ling!!  :D

            ... I sent you the link...!  :-)

            The one thing I'm confident about is that Mei Ling is getting good care from you.  Whatever else happens, I know you're an excellent pootie person, so as long as she's with you she will receive excellent care.

            Have a great day!  :-)
