From Doll Faced Persian to Albino Persian Leopard Cat
"LIONS CLAW" and "Persian cat Matahari" (Friday 12-6-2009)
Doll Faced Persian cat "Matahari" who was a picturesque kitten model has strangely and bizarrely evolved into a Turkish Angora type feline at age 2 and post delivery of 6 kittens. Could anyone explain this complete transformation from a pretty long-furred doll-faced Persian into a rugged tough leopard-like feline with short fur? Her eating habits have also changed after mating and delivery of her 6 kittens, being an excellent queen cat to her kittens.
Agreed, the Persian cat is actually a mixture of various breeds, most notably, the Turkish Angora cat, hence most doll faced Persians have long legs and slender body's similar to Turkish Angoras.
One of Matahari's kittens, among the 6, has developed into a pure Doll-faced Persian, having the short stubby legs and clumsy walk, typical of Persian cats hence proving the fact that various Cross-breedings have evolved.
In this photograph, "Cat Matahari" is shown with the pendant claw of a lion, once common curio's in Africa up to the 1980's when wild-life was abundant and hunting was an elite hobby and not a criminal offence leading to extinction.
Will the future of "Big Cats" be in the form of ownership of pet exotic cats like "Matahari"?
