I was on a tour of Delhi, Lucknow, Varanasi, Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan and in Pokhara came across a beautiful feline named "Suru".

At Pokhara I was residing at the "New Annapurna Guest House", a beautiful farm type bungalow hotel with milch cows and cultivated farm fields.

The manager of the hotel Laxmi.Lamichhane owned a beautiful female cat named "Suru" that obeyed her like a pet dog.

Suru the cat was an outdoors cat in the morning roaming the hotel estate but in the evenings slept in its owners accommodation.

In the morning as soon as Laxmi got out of her accommodation and entered the hotel garden Suru would follow her like a dog hungry for breakfast.

Suru even quarreled with the pet dog "Bittu", a total domination of the estate, despite the presence of a large dog.

Its the first time that I saw a partly outdoors cat be so attached to its owner as most outdoors cats are totally independent, returning to the house only during food time.

Suru resembles a part Siamese type breed, definitely a mixed breed cat as numerous tourists bring their pets to Pokhara during their trekking expeditions.

Please help identify the type of breed that Suru might belong to. Also, I happened to spot a wild cat in Chitwan, slightly smaller than a tabby.

In the photo, cat "Suru" is pictured with her owner miss Laxmi.Lamichhane.

I am Laxmi, the owner of SURU. I love her so.....much as mother loves her child. Neither i know her origin nor her parent's. Her mother used to come my home to eat food, 2 years ago she gave her birth. That time she was like cute rabbit,i liked her & adopted. Since that period she has become a family member,we care her as human. She also has habit like human beings, she understand everything & also plays with my dog"BITTU".

Hi Rudolph. Nice to hear from you and I hope you are well.

I have seen a similar cat in a photograph taken in Thailand, formerly Siam, the country of origin of the Siamese cat.

Suru looks like a traditional lynx point Siamese cat.

It may even been that Suru is purebred on the basis that her parents and grand parents are of the same type of cat. Although that is very unlikely I guess. Of course she is not a pedigree cat (history of parentage).

I am speculating of course. But these are my initial thoughts.

Suru is a very beautiful cat.
