As a dog breeder I am sure that you understand that no matter what breed of cat you decide upon, you know to research the genetic traits - any potential health problems associated with the breed such as PKD with Persians, HCM with Maine Coons etc. I am a silver/golden Persian breeder and am just a bit biased about the breed. Don't know that I would ever own another breed. I would suggest going to a cat show and talking with the exhibitors.

Sounds like he is grieving. I would also have the vet check him out again given his age. Some cats who have been silent start vocalizing when they start losing their hearing.

Grooming > How to make my cat SUPER fluffy for show?

While the Persians are super fluffy, I am not sure that applies to Norwegian Forest cats. Have you contacted your cats breeder for help? What we get done (Mom shows Persians) is degrease first with Goop. It is found in the automotive section of Walmart. Don't get the one with pumice or orange in it. Then a bath with diluted Dawn dish soap. After that a shampoo of your choice - Momuses a volumizing and a clarifying shampoo.

Cats and a Clean Home > Do you bathe your kitty?

We all get baths. The ones Mom shows get bathed (like me!) twice a week normally (Persians). Start out by clipping the nails FIRST! When in the sink/tub keep the cat turned away from you so they can't climb you like a tree. It is a protein in the saliva tha most people are allergic to. We don't particularly like the bath, but it is a necessary thing when you show. Mom has never been bitten while bathing us, but has been when one of us got startled while drying. That is why she now dries us in a bathroom with the door shut.

Sounds like he may be greasy and in need of a bath. If he won't tolerate bathing try sprinkling a little cornstarch baby powder into the base of his coat and combing it out - should help, but a bath would be better.

Grooming > I have bad felted mats and won\'t let Mom touch me!

A furminator should not be used on a matted coat. Really $75 for the clip down for a cat that has a coat in the condition you describe is not bad. I have clipped one down that was in the same shape that you describe and it is an awful lot of work and takes quite a bit of time. I would suggest having the vet do it for the first time though - they have access to sedatives that will calm the cat. After the cat is clipped down start working with him immediately after to accustom him to the comb. Do it daily.

Several nasty ones - one even bit the judge and went on to be a regional winner. It happens. Personality DOES count in HHP since the judges don't have a breed standard to judge against.

I agree with most of what has been said except to ask a breeder to see all the cats and kittens is not going to happen most of the time. If they have very young kittens they will not be willing to expose them to potential disease. The other thing I disagree with is a cat doesn't lose points for not behaving at the shows. The judges may not use the cat in a final, but the cat is strictly judged according to the breed standard not personality. The best thing to do is take your time in searching for a new kitten/cat - talk to people, visit cat shows and get to know the breeders. I always welcome people talking to me and asking me about my cats. Use your head, not your heart in making your choice.

Choosing the Right Cat > Persian or BSH

As said, Persians do require more combing than a short hair. Their personality is good for a family - very laid back. Not all Persians have breathing problems or runny eyes. I have some I wipe the eyes daily and some I only do occasionally. If you decide on buying a Persian from a breeder, please be sure to buy from a breeder who only breeds cats that have been DNA tested negative for polycystic kidney disease.

Cats & Travel > Can Cat Fly in This Carrier?

I haven't traveled by air with a cat in a long time, but if I were you I would check with the airline that you are using. When he is in the carrier can he turn around? I think this is one of the tings they look for when approving the carriers, as well as being able to fit under the seat in front of you.
