Well hi everyone, i am sooo delighted to see this thread. i would also like to introduce her to all you guys.
she is Timon . the naughtiest cat i have come across. she is very loving and wants tons and tons of loving. She even wont eat a grain if i am not around. but my god she has given me tough times. she is a paper shredder. all my bill payments are online now

Well she has a story. My girlfriend used to see her in Parel station, Mumbai several times without any companion or a mom too.she was extremely weak and small..i guess she was three weeks old. one day she saw some crows actually trying to attack her and kill her. that was it for her. she got the cat home but she was traumatized for at least three months. she used to just sit at a corner and stare at a wall for hours. BUT NOW she is a total brat. has one of the shiniest coats(vets vote) and the biggest tummy. he he

hi Condor

Also add the superb Kombai (also spelt as Combai) to the list of our Indian Hounds - a breed indigenous to Tamil Nadu - especially the Pollachi, Coimbatore, Madurai, Tirunelveli and surrounding areas.

They are truly elegant, fiercely loyal hounds, lovely bone structure and they are capable of running down small bucks, deer and the like.

Indeed it is a pity that not enough care is given to the preservation of our indigenous species/ breeds - all the breeds mentioned in your post are not as common as they should be!

the Mudhol, the Pashmi, the Rampur and the Rajapalayam are four distinct Hounds that you can find in India. Pashmi's are (supposed to be) more similar to the Saluki's.

Compare the two pics here: our Mudhol (1st pic) vs Bijoy' Pashmi (2nd Pic).

Mudhol's are typically reared/bred in the districts of Bijapur / Bagalkot, and are a very hardy, robust breed.

What is the price you have been quoted, and from where will it be coming ?



Note
the Pashmi pics here are taken from Bijoy's post in this thread :

Hello to Timon!

konjaril, you must have had a lot of patience to bring the poor wee thing out of her trauma.

I didn't know my cat was shut in when I went to bed last night. My wife was doing a Sunday family visit, and when she got back this morning, she opened the door to a very cross cat with a very full bladder!

i 100 % back you on that. never do it to an animal. people who do such things should try it on themselves and see how it feels.

@konjaril , thats lovely,cute cat. Do get vaccinated one every year for rabbies.
Thank you soo much. i not only get her vaccinated, but get her quaterly boosters and vitamin shots too. i might eat junk food but i make sure she gets fresh chicken or fish cut by me to the right sizes ,the way she likes them. phew!

Hmmm i can not even imagine how cross she might be. they are so adorable. timon has come out of trauma but she likes to stay indoors. she doesnt like going out.infact she has never come across with a stray cat since she has been staying with me. she has a boyfriend ,a domestic well brought up cat to whom i take her to play with. the guy is 2 times bigger than her but she just breaks hell onto him..he he. poor chap. Man! i love her.

Default Pet friendly resorts?

Hi everyone, I was looking around for a resort within 3-4 hours drive from Bangalore to take our 3 month old boxer girl "Zoya" to. I could find only one place in Yercaud that takes in pets. Do any fellow bhp-ians know of other places? Thanks in advance!

Here is Zoya:
