Rusty belongs to the “Exotic Shorthair” breed – “Exotic,” for short. In “layman’s” terms, he’s also called a “short haired Persian”; however, the two breeds are recognized separately by the Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA).
The breed is very laid-back; in other words, they are not usually active in general. When thinking of the breed standard behavior, one could imagine a cat that just lays around, catching “40 winks” most of the day (and perhaps also night), and is very content. The occasional petting session is a bonus.
Rusty, I believe, is an exception. He runs around a lot, and is always coming over to me wherever I am in the house, and asks for my attention. I follow him and he usually takes me to where I can understand what he wants, looking back and talking to me, making sure I’m still following. What a guy!
Toys are a mystery – to me – because it is difficult to find a toy that will create an interest so that he will actually attack and play with it. I found a new one just recently that got him excited. See video below:
Rusty is the only one of the three who really gets into this toy. It’s almost like a “busy-box” for cats.
I kind of got carried away when video-taping this, because after viewing it, I realized it’s 3 minutes long! I won’t feel sad if you don’t want to watch it for all that time, but I’m glad it happened. I can’t seem to get enough of this special little guy!!
I found a cute video. It shows cats and dogs, birds and cats, etc. They are trying to wake each other up – sometimes successfully; many times, not. If you’re ready for some smiles and chuckles, watch this, and by the way, have a nice day:
I have been a fan of Scott’s for years. He is star of the popular TV show, “Income Property.” I have to admit that many years ago, I would have loved to buy real estate for income purpose, but I didn’t have Scott to rely upon to wisely direct me.
It turns out that Scott is a man of many faces, so-to-speak. He loves to organic garden with his family and has a show about preparing dishes made with garden fresh produce.
But, I have slipped away from the purpose of this post: Scott’s kitten:
