Queen cat "Matahari" with her kitten "Matata" - Wednesday 10-6-2009

Two year old doll-faced Persian Queen cat Matahari and her 73 days old kitten "Matata" at home in Mumbai. There has been a tremendous change in the physiology as well as temperament of cat Matahari after delivery and weaning of her 6 kittens. This rare brown coloured kitten I have kept with me , while the rest have been sold to the male stud owner. Is "Matahari" more of a "Turkish Angora"? Her kitten has the best qualities of a "Doll-Faced Persian", strange that the various out-crossings and inbreeding have resulted in a kitten totally different in appearance from the parents.

This is also how the "Peki Persian cat" was evolved from the original "Doll-faced Persian cats".

  1. Saturday(22/8/2020) DEMISE OF ICONIC CAT MATAHARI, A CATALYST IN FORMATION OF CAT CLUBS IN INDIA :- Its with deep sadness that i Rudolph Andrew Furtado announce the death of my 13 years old non-human companion “Queen Cat Matahari” .She expired today morning at approx 0800 hrs after suddenly taking ill yesterday morning with the most probable cause being cancer combined with “Old age”.In human terms she was 68 + years old.She died peacefully surrounded by her human family and with her 11 year old kitten now “Tomcat Matata” keeping a vigil over her. 13 years + is a long lifespan and she filled my life with “Cat humour” and entertainment besides being the inspiration role model for creating “Cat Clubs” as well as a catalyst in formation of India’s first “Cat Show”.Now there is one less member in my household but the memories will live on.The image of her sitting on the window gallery ledge for the last 12 years will be missed by one and all.To quote Lord Alfred Tennyson , quote, “Its better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”.She was buried at iconic “PRABHADEVI BEACH” which is the sea facing graveyard of my previous two dog’s “Blondie” and “Lucky” as well as cat “Trixie”.Thanks to fisherman Shri Mahadeo for digging the grave at a time when the “Coronavirus Pandemic” is creating havoc and a scare among us all humans.Yes, the SEA always beckons the living as well as the dead . R.I.P “Matahari”.
