  1. I have a grey midget cat. She has been in heat 3 times. Do I mate her with a midget cat or can she mate with a regular size cat. I got her from a friend who said she came from a regular size mommy cat. I really need to know. Thanks ……..

    • Well, this is an interesting question. My initial thought is she can be matted with a regular sized cat. If you want more miniature cats it might be better to mate with another miniature cat.

  2. my ranch is in Mclennan co. tex. hunters have reported seeing a mountain lion, I want to learn more about habits of cats thanks.
