Tuesday(8-6-2010) :- "Matata" showing characteristics of typical "Tom cat".

I had been on an 18 day tour to Europe between Saturday(15-5-2010) to Tuesday(1-6-2010) with my pets Matahari, Matata and parakeet "Mittoo" being cared by my house-keeper Sabina.
"Matata" has grown into a robust and sturdy cat and eats any edible food with no allergies. His only bad habit which he has developed recently after almost a year of age is unrinating in another spot in the house besides his normal toilet which is the house bathroom. This is the trouble with "Male Cats",urinating at another spot in the house or their surroundings to mark their "territory", common with all cats, the big cats of the jungles as well as domestic house cats.
A funny characteristic of "Matata" is that his behaviour is akin to a dog and responds immediately to his name when called unlike his dam Matahari who is mostly aloof and withdrawn, a typical "queen Cat".


"Matata"- Forever the "Young Kitten"(Monday 10-5-2010)

Matata is now over 13 months old but behaves like a kitten, absolutely playfull and mischievious, the clown of my household.
He is maturing sexually, and tends to "Yowl" occasionally when his dam"Matahari" is in "Heat", a very frequent occurence.
Another strange aspect of "Matata" is that his fur tends to "Matt' on the underside of his belly and flanks , the same having to be trimmed with scissors.
He has grown into a perfect "Traditional Persian Cat' and has acclimatised to the hot humid Mumbai weather, unlike most "Persian cats" especially the "Ultra(peke eyed)Type" which find Mumbai's ht climates detrimental to their natural comfort.
I am trying to breed a "Mumbai Persian cat" by "Inbreeding" matata with his dam matahari, but, the two of them don't seem to pair as a mating pair.Hope as matata matures the two do mate.


"Matata" at 13 months of age.

On Thursday(29-4-2010) "Matata" attained 13 months of age, growing into the typical definition of a "FAT CAT"!
He loves eating and is not allergic to any food, unlike his dam "Matahari" who is allergic to fish, suffering from "Skin rash".
"Matata" is akin to a child, innocent and mischieviously playfull, a real delight in the house.
As regarding "Sexual Maturity", seems, "Matata" is a laggard as he still hasn't mated with his dam "Matahari" although she comes on heat regularly due to his presence. Another funny aspect is that "Matahari" doesn't prefer "Matata' as a mate, repulsing his amorous advances, making him more confused about the " Cat Mating game".
Matata's fur tends to "Matt" rapidly ,especially on his underside, becoming hard like "Tumours" regarding frequent trimming with scissors. Its a difficult job as care should be taken in avoiding accidental rupture of his delicate skin while trimming.


Matata is sexually mature at age 1 year .(Thursday- 15-4-2010)

At 1 year of age "Matata" is showing signs of sexual maturity by trying to approach his dam "Matahari' when in heat, but, she scares him and doesn't allow him to mount her. Seems cats also have their liking and fancy for other cats when chosing mating partners. i hope "matata" ultimately mates with "Matahari". Another major problem with "Matata" is that his underside fur on the belly and rump tends to get "Knotted" quiclky and has to be constantly trimmed with scissors.


Matata's Birthday . Monday 29-3-2010.

Today "Matata" is a year old, from kitten to "tom cat". He was bred in my house by my persian cat "Matahari" and was the first kitten in a total litter of 6. I have been able to document his life completely, unlike his dam "Matahari" whom i purchased from a "Pet Shop Dealer" in Mumbai's famous "crawford Market", hence not sure of her actual birthdate and "Pedigree". He has grown into an excellent specimen of the "Doll faced(Traditional Persian ) cat", beautiful colour and compact "Low centre of gravity" body shape. Temperamentally he is a "wimp" totally afraid of any human strangers who enter the house, hiding into a corner when anyone visits me.He is also totally "Bulluied" by his dam "Matahari" , she being an "alpha female', absolutely bold, not afraid of animals or humans! In the house, with myself and his care-taker Sabina.Dias he is a miniature "cat Prince', totally dominating his human companions and performing "death Defying" stunts" like walking on "window Ledges" of the 5th floor of the house. His temperament and behaviour is akin to a small human child, absolutely mischievious and cute. He is also a glutton, mostly loving "fish based food".

"Matata" the "Cat Boss" of the house!(Tuesday 2-2-2010)

Matata was born in our house and hence besides the confines of the house he has never been outdoors. He gets terrified if taken outdoors and tries to flee to a hiding place. In the house he acts like a prince, totally comfortable and bullying us, his human caretakers! He is the most gluttonous pet that i have ever owned, including my two dogs which i had before owning cats.He will eat anything "Non-vegetarian" and relishes fish. He also has the bad habit of "Clawing" on the furniture and has left his deep claw indentions on the "arm-Rest' of my arm-chair. Another strange habit of his is his preference for sitting and sleeping on my armchair, his favourite resting spot after a vorascious meal and also using the arm-rest as a scratching post, the common habit of cats.A strange habit of his is that whenever he sees me approaching the chair to sit he immediately jumps onto it before me and makes himself comfortable, beating me to a seat on my own armchair! He has done this on numerous occassions and hence clearly indicating that he loves this game of "Musical chairs" with his human owner.He is the equivalent of a young deliquent human child, absolutely playfull and innocent in his mischief.


ERRATA:- "Matata has not mated with "Matahari".(Saturday 23-1-2010)

I had made a misjudgement in deducing that kitten "Matata" had mated with his dam "Matahari" at the age of 8 months as "Matahari' has again come into heat on Friday(22-1-2010). Matata is still a playfull kitten and has not learned about the "Mating game".


"Matata" welcomes "New Year-2010" with the "CAT- WALK".(Friday 1-1-2010)

After a long time cat "Matata" suddenly went out of the bedroom window and sat on the 3 inches ledge surveying the World 5 floors below, A simple slip of his balance would cause him to drop 5 floors to his death or broken bones if the proverb, "A Cat has 9 Lives comes true".On seeing him i really panicked as the window gratings are too small for his plump physique unlike his dam "Matahari" who is sleek and flexible. On calling his name he coolly walked into the bedroom from his death defying ledge pretending as if it was a normal early morning stroll. From kitten to cat, "Matata" is a real mystery , a freak of the "Cat world"


End of 2009 and beginning of 2010 . Happy New Year-2010.

Kitten "Matata" just completed 9 months of age on Tuesday(29-12-2009). He is now officially a male "Tom Cat" but it seems he turned sexually mature at approx 8 1/2 months having mated with his dam "Matahari", something which took me by surprise.His behaviour is still of a charming cute kitten as he has developed the perfect body configuration of the "Traditional Persian cat(Doll-Faced Persian)". Another funny behaviour off his is his tendency to behave like a dog, especially during "Food hours". As soon as his name is called he runs towards me for morsels of "Table food' something he relishes besides his normal "Cat food". He is slightly obese and very active and agile for his short long body configuration, having completed all the dangerous cat walks around the house window ledges.Strange, before completing a year, cat matata could become a father of his dam "Matahari's " kittens!
