History

The Jungle Curl is an experimental breed from North America, so new and confidential that it is not recognized by any major feline organization. La única institución que permite el registro de un gato de la selva es el Registro de Felinos Raros y Exóticos (REFR), a small association that, as its name suggests, is specialized in rare and exotic cat breeds.

Due to the lack of recognition by the different national and international feline organizations, there is no standard that defines the appearance of a Jungle Curl. El resultado es que los distintos criadores de la raza no tienen necesariamente los mismos criterios y crean regularmente nuevas líneas, making it difficult to unify the race.

However, all the Jungle Curl tienen algo en común: are the result of crosses between the Domestic cat and the jungle cat (Felis chaus), a wild cat found in Egypt, the caucasus, Central Asia, India and Southeast Asia.

This hybridization between the Felis chaus and the domestic cat is not new: the first experiments in this field date back to the years 60 and gave rise to the Chausie cat, a breed of domestic cat recognized since then. However, the Jungle Curl is not a Chausie cat: they are two very different cats.

Usually, una línea de Jungle Curl is created by crossing a jungle cat (Felis chaus) with a American Curl, but breeders also often use other breeds such as the Highland Lynx or the Hemingway Curl. Los híbridos resultantes se cruzan con otros gatos domésticos, as the Abyssinian cat, the Chausie cat, the Serengeti cat or the Bengal cat.

The Jungle Curl es un gato poco común, found primarily in the United States and Canada, although it also exists in Europe. However, en cualquier país, el número de criadores se puede contar con los dedos de una mano.

The polydactyly es común en esta raza, but due to the lack of a standard, opinions differ: some breeders promote it by favoring polydactyl cats for breeding, mientras que otros prefieren intentar eliminar esta característica.

The head of the Jungle Curl it is rather round, with eyes rasgados que varían en color de amarillo a verde. The most distinctive feature of Jungle Curl they are her little ones ears round, similar to those of a lion, que se curvan hacia atrás en mayor o menor medida según el individuo. These round and curved ears are the main difference between the Jungle Curl and the Chausie cat -the breed with which the Jungle Curl-, who has big ears, tall and triangular.

There are long-haired and short-haired specimens. In any case, the preferred patterns of the REFR (Rare and Exotic Feline Registry), they are the fawn and the leopard. Regarding the color of the cat's coat, la diversidad está a la orden del día, since we find individuals with a silver fur, así como chocolate, blue, black ebony, lila púrpura, cream or even red.

History

The origins of the Javanese cat

Also known as Colorpoint Longhair, the Javanese is a fairly rare breed of cat.

En contra de lo que podrían sugerir los distintos nombres exóticos, was created in the United States.

In 1978, American breeders of the Balinese cat and the Oriental shorthair cat crossed the two races to develop a new one with a personality similar to that of the Siamese cat, but with longer hair and a greater variety of colors.

Therefore, the Javanese cat descends from Oriental shorthair cat, but also of the Siamese cat, since the Balinese cat is a Siamese longhair.

Of these two ancestors, is clearly the Balinese cat the one that most resembles its general appearance: has inherited the fact that its tail ends in feather-like hairs. This explains the name Javanese, as the Indonesian island of Java is close to Bali: It, Therefore, a nod to its resemblance to the Balinese cat -although, by the way, the balinese does not come from Bali like the Javanese cat makes it Java…

The cats Javanese and balinese difieren en los colores de sus túnicas. In the case of the first, all dress colors are accepted. For the balinese, However, only colors are allowed point blue, chocolate, lilac and seal.

The recognition of the breed

The Javanese cat (Colorpoint Longhair) has caused a lot of controversy and debate about whether this cat is really a new breed., or simply a variety of Balinese cat. Major government bodies around the world remain divided, but many consider it a variety of Oriental Longhair cat, not a separate breed.

In 1979, the International Cat Association (TICA) recognized the Javanese cat as a race in its own right, with the name of Oriental Longhair cat. However, later he changed his mind and grouped him with the Siamese cat, the Balinese cat and the Oriental shorthair cat, considering all four as one race, the group of Siamese breeds.

The Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) did exactly the same thing: after recognizing the Javanese cat as a distinct breed in 1986, renamed it as Oriental Longhair cat in 2002 and classified it as an Oriental variety, in the same way as the Oriental shorthair cat. In other words, unlike TICA, the CFA regards Orientals as a race in their own right, especially for its wide variety of colors.

The Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFé) accepted the Javanese cat as a race in its own right in 1985, but with the name of Oriental Longhair cat. It is classified in the group of oriental breeds, along with the Siamese cat, the Oriental shorthair cat, the Balinese cat and the Seychellois cat.

El Consejo de Gobierno Británico de la Fantasía Felina (GCCF) he took the same position when he recognized it in 1997: he also kept the name of Oriental long-haired and integrated it into the group of oriental breeds, where the Siamese already appeared, the Balinese and the Oriental Shorthair.

For its part, the Livre Officiel des Origines Félines (LOOF), French reference body, decided to associate the Javanese cat with the Balinese cat. Like this, considered at the Javanese as a balinese with green eyes and a wide range of coat colors.
What's more, whatever the official body, accepted crosses are :

If he Javanese cat shares many traits with the Siamese in terms of appearance, it also has a temperament quite similar to that of the Siamese, even if you are less demanding in daily life.

However, by being at the same time intelligent, loving and playful, but also stubborn and possessive, it should be noted that he has a strong personality.

Very faithful and attached to its owners and the people with whom it lives, loves pampering, but also spending time with them and participating in family activities. It's even easier to integrate it into the family, as you can learn to walk on a leash and, Therefore, to be taken for a walk.

Gets along very well with children and enjoys playing with them, as long as you are treated with respect and attention. In any case, for the sake of both, a cat should never be left alone with a young child without adult supervision. This applies regardless of race.

It is common for the Javanese to be especially attached to a specific member of the house, who is usually the person who takes care of you the most. Combined with your curiosity, esta cercanía puede convertirlos en perros un poco pegajosos hasta el punto de seguirlos a todas partes, sleep with them and monitor all their movements from morning to night.

By being very observant and intelligent, does not hesitate to take advantage to learn and reproduce them. That is why it is not strange to see him, for example, opening a door, a drawer or even emptying a bag.

However, it is possible to use these skills to teach your cat tricks. For example, can teach your cat to search for and retrieve objects, tal como lo haría un gato. In fact, the Javanese is an easy to train cat breed.

To keep your cat happy, it is necessary to stimulate it mentally. Enjoy games that require thought and cunning, such as kibble labyrinths or any other toy that involves difficulty. Giving him a part of his daily ration through a dispenser or toys that appeal to his intelligence is also an excellent thing., because it also helps you to satiate more quickly: this helps prevent this little wolverine from becoming obese, to which you are predisposed.

It's also a good way to keep you busy when you're away., since his attachment to his humans makes him not bear to be alone. However, as you suffer from separation anxiety, soon begins to behave destructively. Therefore, it is preferable not to leave you alone for a long time or too often, and leave him toys to take care of when he's out. In any case, una persona que pase la mayor parte de sus días fuera de casa y no pueda llevárselo consigo estaría mejor con un representante de otra raza más independiente.

Another solution may be to share your home with another dog.; this playmate is sure to help you pass the time, and vice versa. However, things tend to go much better when he comes in second place, or when both enter the house at the same time. Si está acostumbrado a ser el único gato de la casa y entra un recién llegado, is likely to be jealous and possessive, but also to defend its territory against this invader.

Debido a su cercanía a la familia, el javanés es también una raza de gato que maúlla mucho. In this case, tiene una notable habilidad para variar sus vocalizaciones según el objeto de su petición, to gradually educate their masters to recognize them. He does not hesitate to communicate with his humans and ask for all the attention he needs., generally achieving without difficulty to make oneself understood.

For seniors, this can be a bit exhausting in the long run, given the attention and response it requires. If they also have difficulty moving and he always hinders them, certain situations can even become dangerous. Again, another cat breed choice is potentially more appropriate.

In any case, the Javanese cat behaves very differently with people he doesn't know: he is as reserved with them as he is close to those he meets on a daily basis.

On the other hand, a dog with whom you share your home can be perfectly regarded as your friend, especially if you have lived with him since he was very young. Otherwise, a gradual adaptation is necessary for coexistence to work.

Although he is sociable with his family, your companions and even dogs, the Javanese cat he is still a formidable hunter. Even if you have been with him since he was very young, un roedor o un pájaro nunca estarían completamente seguros con él, porque su instinto depredador podría tomar el control en cualquier momento.

This instinct, combined with your curiosity, makes, if you have access to a garden, do not hesitate to abandon it to follow its prey. Therefore, there is a great risk that you will end up getting lost by getting too far away from your territory. Thus, A GPS collar for cats can be a wise investment so you know where your cat is at all times and don't worry unnecessarily.

In any case, el miedo a que se pierda no es motivo para mantenerlo encerrado cuando se vive en una casa con jardín. In effect, this little feline, very athletic, agile and lively, needs space to run, frolicking and climbing. Está claro que son más felices en una casa con jardín, but they can get used to living in a flat, as long as it is big enough, are stimulated and have a cat tree. You should also remember to provide a scratching post if you don't have access to the outside., as furniture and curtains can be very comfortable for scratching.

Last, just because it's generally very active and moves often doesn't mean it can't also be calm and restrained at times.. Like this, su cercanía a sus humanos no es incompatible con el hecho de que, like any cat, you also need your moments of solitude; everyone must respect them, since it is an indispensable condition for its development.

    History

    The Korat is originally from Siam (current Thailand) and is one of the oldest breeds of domestic cats.

    The first references appear in the Tamra Maew, or “Cat Poems Book”, a manuscript written in the city of Ayutthaya between 1350 (when the kingdom of Siam was founded) and 1767 (when the city was sacked by the Burmese invaders). At the end of the 19th century, King Rama V (1869-1910) asked the monk Somdej Phra Buddhacharm Buddhasarmathera to reproduce this text on paper Khoi, version kept in the National Library in Bangkok.

    This work describes 17 cats that bring good luck to their masters, and other 6 that bring bad luck. The Korat cat es uno de los gatos de la suerte más valorados del país, and many traditions are associated with it; for example, se regala a las novias como garantía de un matrimonio feliz, and usually appears in ceremonies to attract rain for the cultivation of rice. Apparently, at that time, the Korat was a “village cat”, unlike in the Siamese cat, which was mainly adopted by the nobility of the kingdom of Siam.

    The first Korats appeared in Great Britain in the late 19th century and are mentioned in the Book of Cats published in 1903 by Frances Simpson, Judge and feline historian. They were shown at feline shows as “blue siamese”, but this did not convince the judges, que tenían una percepción diferente del Siamese. As a result, no tuvieron éxito y desaparecieron del país a principios del siglo XX.

    However, the Korat returned to the western world in 1959, When Jean Johnson brought to the United States a couple of Korats (Nara and Darra) that her Foreign Service colleagues gave her husband when he left Thailand. Based in Oregon, his kennel Cedar Glen then imported other specimens at the beginning of the years 60 y fue el primero en Occidente en iniciar un programa de cría de Korat. Not in vain, the breed was officially recognized in 1966 by the CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association), la principal organización felina del país.

    The Korats they returned to the UK (and to europe) in 1972, and the first copies appeared in France in 1979. The recognition of the race by the TICA (International Cat Association) arrived that same year, and the FiFé (International Cat Federation) did the same the following year, in 1980.

    Aunque hoy en día está reconocida por la gran mayoría de las organizaciones, the Korat still a rare breed of cat in the western world. In United States, aparece en los últimos puestos de la clasificación de las razas según el número de inscripciones anuales en la CFA, and it hardly does any better in the UK, with less than a hundred individuals enrolled annually in the GCCF – a figure that also tends to decrease year after year. In France, the records in the Livre Officiel des Origines Félines (LOOF) were almost non-existent until 2010, but since 2013 some are registered 50 kittens a year.

    The Korat it is a medium size cat, semilineal, with a medium-length tail that tapers to the tip. His powerful and muscular body makes him heavier than he seems, especially when fully grown, around the 3 years. However, this does not prevent him from being an agile cat.

    Its head looks quite unusual: seen from the front, it has a heart shape, with ears large, round tip and high implantation. Their eyes large, round and expressive look oversized for your head, pero conservan la típica inclinación “Eastern” when they are closed or half closed. Kittens usually have yellow-amber eyes, but they turn green when they mature.

    The fur it's short to medium, without Undercoat. Fine and closed, tends to bristle on the back when in motion. The coat is a uniform silvery blue color, no shading, marks or stains. El pelaje es más brillante en la raíz, then tints to a darker blue and ends with a pronounced silver sheen. In the extremities of the body, where the hair is shorter, this silver glow is more intense.

    The sexual dimorphism is moderately marked, the female being slightly smaller than the male.

    • Male size: 22 – 28 cm.
    • female size: 20 – 26 cm.

    Character and skills

    Korat

    Gentil y afectuoso, the Korat he is unfailingly loyal to his master, cuya compañía busca constantemente. He likes pampering, and spends most of the time near him to receive caresses and attention. It is not a breed of cat that easily supports loneliness: he does not like to stay home without his family, y si tiene que permanecer allí demasiado tiempo y con demasiada frecuencia, he runs the risk of shutting down and losing his usual affection.

    The Korat it is also a breed of cat that adapts to children, appreciating playing with them and spending time with them. On the other hand, no busca la compañía de otros gatos: between their fellow humans and the humans in their family, your preference is quite found. Its calm character makes it normally tolerate the presence of other cats or dogs accustomed to cats in its territory without problems., as long as it remains the main focus of its owner's attention. On the other hand, coexistence with birds or small rodents is not recommended.

    Lively and playful, likes to chase a ball or chase paper balls thrown by their owner. However, no matter how active it is, he is not the destructive type and is perfectly comfortable in a flat without going out as long as his family takes the time to play with him.

    By the way, noise and commotion are not for him either. Although they can tolerate the noise of a television or computer, es probable que se asusten con un teléfono que suene fuerte o si un miembro de la familia se pone a escuchar música a todo volumen.

    It is a very intelligent and docile cat, that can be trained relatively easily and that respects, for example, the places that are forbidden, like the dining room table, the kitchen or the clothes closet. Last, the Korat it's not very noisy. Instead of meowing, often chooses to attract attention by rubbing around the paws or nibbling on the balls of the feet. However, they don't shut up: if they think they have something important to say, they do not hesitate to do it.

    History

    The LaPerm is a recent breed of cat that originated in The Dalles, a small town in Oregon (Northwestern United States) located near the hunting grounds of the Wishram Indians, a Chinook tribe.

    In the spring of 1982, a farm cat named Speedy, property of Linda and Richard Koehl, gave birth to a litter of six kittens. No sabían que uno de los gatitos, a small, hairless female, with big ears and a big heart, se convertiría en una nueva raza.

    Al cabo de dos meses, this kitty started showing some curly hair, what caught the attention of Linda Koehl. At four months, el gatito que ahora se conocía como Curly tenía un hermoso y suave pelaje rizado. To the Koehl they were amused to see such a special cat, but they accepted it without question, and Curly lived an eventful life as a farm cat.

    He was about to die when, being a young cat, decided to take a nap under the hood of the station wagon. Por suerte, right after starting the car, Linda Koehl heard the panicked screams of Curly and escaped with just a few cuts.

    "LaPerm"

    She grew up and gave birth to her first litter of five kittens, all males and with skin as smooth as their mother's. Intrigued, Linda Koehl did some research and concluded that it was some kind of mutation “Rex”, which causes some cats to have a curly coat similar to that of the rabbit Astrex. However, did not go through with this.

    Curly had more litters, giving birth to new hairless kittens of both sexes. Un día desapareció y los Koehl they did not see her again.

    His descendants stayed. In the following years, They lived freely and gave birth to a colony of curly-haired cats in the vicinity of the farm of the Koehl. Several visitors and neighbors convinced Linda Koehl de que estos gatos eran únicos, así que en 1992 decided to present four specimens at a cat show in Portland, Oregon.

    To be able to register them, had to register them with a breed name, so he chose the name of LaPerm. The name of LaPerm refers to curly hair of these cats, reminiscent of the permanent fashion of the years 80, but also to tradition chinook de adoptar palabras francesas incorporando su artículo (for example, “Apple” It “lapom” in chinook).

    These first LaPerm were enthusiastically received, and the judges told Linda Koehl que la raza era desconocida y debía ser preservada. So, 10 years after the birth of Curly, the Koehl they began to breed LaPerms, an activity they weren't prepared for, ya que originalmente habían adoptado gatos para cazar plagas, not for the love of the little feline. With the support of other breeders and professionals, among them Solveig Pflueger, a renowned feline geneticist, the couple was able to fulfill the dream of many professional breeders: create a new breed of cats.

    The tests showed that the genetic mutation that caused the LaPerm se debía a un gen dominante diferente al de otras razas de gatos de tipo Rex (Cornish Rex, Devon Rex, etc.), that is to say, those of curly fur. The dominance of this gene is the main reason for the rapid proliferation of these new cats on the farm of the Koehl: sólo hacía falta que uno de los padres fuera portador para que esta mutación se transmitiera potencialmente a los gatitos.

    In 1997, the creation of a breed club (The LaPerm Society of America) contributed to its recognition by the main feline associations. The first to definitely do so was the International Cat Association (TICA) in 2003, followed by Cat Fancier’s Association (CFA) in 2008. The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF) and Fédération Internationale Féline (FiFé) they recognized her in 2012 and 2015 respectively.

    Although today it is present on all continents, the LaPerm still a rare feline breed. in your country of origin, se encuentra en las últimas posiciones del ranking de razas por número de inscripciones anuales en la CFA. In Britain he was quite successful when he arrived in 2002, with more than a hundred cats registered each year with the GCCF up to 2008, when there was a clear decline. In the second decade of the 21st century, this figure was more like twenty per year. In France, es aún más raro, with solo 20 LaPerm registrados en el Libro Oficial de Orígenes Felinos (LOOF) between 2003 and 2018.

    Physical characteristics

    The LaPerm it is a cat of size small to medium with a body long and thin, with hips slightly higher than shoulders. The legs and tail they are also quite long, like the rest of the body.

    The head has a triangular shape, with rounded contours. The eyes, large, almendrados e increíblemente expresivos, they can be yellow, copper, green or blue. The ears, quite large and located in the prolongation of the head, They are provided inside and preferably end in a plumage similar to that of the lynx.

    The standard LaPerm allows all colors and fur patterns, but the turtle, brindle and red are the most common. In any case, es sin duda el pelaje lo que hace única a el LaPerm: soft and silky, has a distinctive texture reminiscent of mohair or sheep's wool. It can be simply wavy or form corkscrew-shaped curls.

    There are also two varieties of the breed, since they can be short or long hair.

    In any case, kittens can be born hairless, with straight hair or with curly hair. They usually have their definitive fur around the 6 months of age, although some initially straight-haired kittens only become curly after the first year.

    Some, However, keep hair straight throughout their life. This is because, even though both parents are LaPerms, each of them can carry a single gene for curly hair (and how this gene is dominant, es suficiente para que tengan esta característica). Therefore, cada uno de sus descendientes tiene una posibilidad entre cuatro de no heredar el gen que causa esta característica.

    By the way, despite what you sometimes hear, curly hair LaPerm does not make it a hypoallergenic cat breed. In fact, cat allergy is caused by dead skin, not for the hair.

    Last, the sexual dimorphism it is quite marked, the female being smaller than the male.

    Size and weight

    • Male size: 22 a 26 cm.
    • female size: 20-24 cm.
    • Male weight: 3 a 4 kg
    • female weight: 2,5-3,5 kg

    Varieties of "LaPerm"

    The LaPerm it comes in two varieties: the Longhaired LaPerms and the LaPerm Shorthair.

    Some organizations consider them as two different races. It is the case of the Fédération Internationale Féline (FiFé) and of the International Cat Association (TICA). However, for others, as the American Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) and the British Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), they are two varieties of the same breed.
