"Matata" the freak brown "Doll-Faced Persian" male kitten

Matahari had given birth to 6 kittens on Sunday(29-3-2009) of which i have given a detailed history in "matahari's catster diary".
Today,Monday(22-6-2009) i had taken "Matata" to the Veterinarian for the first time since its birth for vaccinations and also got its sex confirmed as a "Male".
"Doll-Faced Persian kittens" are very difficult to sex by an amateur breeder as they have long dense fur and unlike puppy dogs their genitals are not externally visible unless examined by a "Cat Expert".
"Matata" is light brown in colour and a copybook model replica of the "Doll-Faced kitten" as shown in glossy magazines.
Hope he matures into a handsome cat as kittens change drastically as they mature and age, a prime example is "Matata's" mother "Matahari" who at the age of 2 resembles an exotic white doll-faced persion leopard cat!

"Matata" at 4 months of age, a robust hardy specimen of a- "doll-faced Persian"(Sunday 2-8-2009)

Matata has developed into a fat plump kitten, absolutely mischievous and also lazy.His fur coat is sleek and thick and he resembles more of the original "Doll-Faced Persian breed", a freak amongst his 5 other siblings who resembled their parents and more of the "Angora Breed Genes" in their physique and breed behaviour.The other 5 kittens of Matahari which were pure snow white like her were very agile in climbing unlike "matata" who is clumsy at climbing, having short legs and a stubby fat body structure.Matata is never fussy about his food unlike his mother "Matahari" and eats anything edible, hence could survive under any condition akin to feral cats, a hardy tough kitten.


Kitten Matata's bathe -(Tuesday 4-8-2009)

Bathing should be made a habit from "Kittenhood" otherwise its difficult as cats just hate water unlike their larger cousins"tigers".I bathe Matata once a month , beginning his first bathe as a 1 1/2 month old kitten along with his 5 other siblings.Crawford Market Pet shop breeder, Mr Imran.Khan adviced me to use "Johnson Baby shampoo" for bathing and controlling flee's, which he regularly uses as he deals in a large number of various pets.I previously used human soap for bathing matata's mother Matahari, but realised that it caused rashes and after changing over to "Johnsons baby shampoo" the rashes on cat matahari's skin have ceased. I bathe matata in the bathroom with the door closed so that he can't run away into the house, but, just stand in a corner of the bathroom while i shower them and later apply 'Johnsons baby lotion" instead of soap.My advice, apply a mild shampoo for your cats as ordinary human soaps are too harsh for their skin and could later cause skin rashes.


Saturday(29-8-2009):- Kitten Matata completes 5 months.

Kitten Matata has completed 5 months and grown into a mischievious fat kitten.Eating is his hobby and he consumes anything and everything that is "Non-Vegetarian", worse than feral cats, something bizarre.He has developed into a beautiful and fat chubby kitten, a poster boy for the "DOLL FACED KITTEN" species.he is "Toilet trained", hence no major "cat problems" of messing around the entire house.The term "COPY CAT" can be understood by observing kitten Matata and his mother Matahari as he just duplicates her behaviour, something humorous and also dangerous.Hope he doesn't pick up Matahari's suicidal habits of jumping out of the house balcony onto the parapit ledge.


Matata is a "glutton" and robust freak kitten.(Monday- 14-9-2009)

Matata is now past 5 months of age and is developing well, absolutely tough and robust, a authentic "FAT CAT" and also a "COPY CAT".His eating habits are worse than a "feral cat" as he eats anything and everything "non-vegetarian", unlike Matahari who is choosy in her food habits.Matata is an absolute freak kitten from the litter of 6 kittens delivered by cat matahari, right from his colouration to his body configuration.He is short and stubby with a longish body like a dchshund dog and is more true to the "Traditional Persian cat(Doll-Faced Persian)" pedigree type. His "Cat agility" is less compared to his siblings who were able to climb all over my house at the age of less than 2 months. Matata hesitates and at times finds it difficult to scale heights or jump onto the sofa, skills at which his siblings were comfortable and very skilled.He looks absolutely beautiful with his partial stripes resembling a miniature 'white Tiger".He is absolutely pertrified off strangers unlike Matahari who doesn't bother about anyone, absolutely bold.He is a total "COPY CAT" of his mother Matahari, immitating each and every behaviour of hers and now i understand the reason for the phrase "COPY CAT" in human vocabulary. One of the good "Copy cat habits" that he has picked up from Matahari is usage of the toilet for his daily use, hence no excreta at odd places in the house.Cats change rapidly as they develop as i discovered with matahari and the same could be the case with Matata. At 5 months of age he is one of the cutest and fattest of "fat cats " in India! Readers and viewers be the judges.

"Copycat Matata" is mimicking all the habits and mannerisms of his mother matahari, the good along with the bad. The good is that he is now totally "Toilet trained" but the bad is that he wants to sit on the "Gallery Window Ledge", just like Matahari. Hope he doesn't fall off as his mother matahari has a totally different "Body Configuration" compared to him, a short, long body, typical of a "persian cat".Persian cats are not good climbers unlike siameese or other tall limbed cats.On Sunday(20-9-2009) Matata did the ultimate mimickry of Matahari by jumping onto the gallery window legdge and thankfully i quickly took him from the ledge. NOW I UNDERSTAND THE HUMAN TERM,"COPY CAT".


Fat kitten Matata

At 6 months of age Matata has evolved into an absolute fat and obese kitten. He is physically very active, involved in kitten pranks duplicating Matahari to the "t'.He is a absolute glutton, consuming anything "Non-vegetarian" and unlike Matahari is not selective in his eating habits, consuming table-leftovers.His nickname is "Kuchra" which means "Dustbin" in hindi as he is the definition of a scavenger cat, absolute strange for the "Persian breed" of cats.He looks cute, a chubby, fat kitten with tiger stripes resembling a miniature "White tiger".

Checked Matata's weight on Monday(5-10-2009)at the age of 6 months and he weighs a massive 3 kilos(6.6 pounds).He is short and stubby, a true 'Traditional(doll Faced) Persian"

At 6 months of age kitten "Matata" has redifined the human term "COPYCAT". He imitates each and every movement of his dam Queen cat Matahari and just today , Sunday(11-10-2009) he demonstrated the infamous " CAT SUICIDE WALK" patented by Matahari.In the morning at approx 0700 hrs he went out of the bedroom window sill grating and came inside after the narrow walk on the 3'' ledge with a sheer drop 5 storeys below. Unlike his dam Queen cat matahari who has longer legs and a more slimmer body configuration, Matata is the prototype "Doll-Faced (Traditional) Persian" cat, short with stubby legs and slightly obese to boot, the ultimate "FAT CAT". Hence his agility in climbing and jumping is a total non-description of the prototype "Persian cat", a normally very docile and pampered breed, a typical lap cat. My ownership, observation and breeding of persian cats Matahari and Matata have made me realise that the "Cat Experts" are still "LEARNING" the behaviour and characteristics of various cat breeds.
